Water Sports
Tahiti offers a huge variety of water sports for everyone.

You can also head out to the ocean to swim with the sharks, rays, and many other larger marine life if you’re feeling adventurous. Deep sea fishing is also a great way to see the sights and have some fun. But, you can just sit back and enjoy a sail around the island too. From sailing to snorkeling, there are many water sports here for you and your whole family to enjoy!

Island Diversity
Tahiti was settled by the ancient Polynesians thousands of years ago. Their presence is still evident in the many maraes (ancient sites) around Tahiti and her sister islands. When the European sailors arrived, the culture changed slightly, as missionaries introduced their ways into this tropical society. You can still find the ancient Tikis here to remind you about the wonderful past of Tahiti and it’s future here in the French Polynesian islands. While you’re here, don’t forget to get a tattoo, just like the natives….

Activities
If water sports just aren’t for you, there are plenty of other activities to be found. From safaris to tours to shopping, there is something for everyone here. You can book a tour of the rain forests, seeing all the breathtaking sights of the Tahitian waterfalls and mountains, or you can take a walking tour of Papeete, the capital of Tahiti, and see some of the sights there.
