Moorea is well known for its very unique site to meet the stingrays and reef sharks on a shallow sand bar in the lagoon. You can stand here, the water is about 1.3 meters deep and crystal clear. Stingrays have become accustomed to sharing their sandy bed with snorkelers and can be very inquisitive an curious when swimmers are around.
Be ready for up close and personal encounters with these wonderful reef creatures. Led by our team composed of Marine Biologist and Naturalist Guides, our encounters are informative and carefully managed to impact the lives of the stingrays as little as possible. We really enjoy this snorkeling site, as we know many of our guests gain a greater appreciation and respect for the stingrays and reef sharks. When fear is replaced by understanding we know that grass root conservation is at work.
The Stingray Flat is a very famous place in Moorea and can be very crowded with more thant 100 people swimming in this area. Join Moorea Ocean Adventures to enjoy the stingrays and sharks with nobody around. We know the good hours and how to avoid the big groups.
