Discover the wonderful world of coral reefs
Intimate discovery of coral reefs and underwater lanscapes
Explore the wild marine areas of our island
Coral gardens are in the lagoon a real city where hundreds of coloured species live. This is the perfect opportunity to meet parrotfish, butterfly fish, surgeon fish, wrasses and many others. Coral gardens are shallow and perfect for beginners. A lot of tiny creatures live there : christmas tree worms, clams, pipefish or nudibranchs will wait for macrophotography lovers !
Exploring these labyrinths of corals is also the opportunity to know more about their ecology, their lifecycle and why they are endangered today.
Channels are a passage between lagoon and ocean where water is renewed. Many species of fish take advantage from the abundant food there. On the sides of the channels, you will explore spectacular drop-offs where parrotfish and other species spawn. The currents are sometimes significant and then we do drift snorkeling. Beginning on the lagoon side, the currents will bring us until the ocean. Thrills! For medium and advanced snorkelers.
Drift Reef Snorkeling is possible only when the water visibility is good enough. With 12 channels around the island, you have a huge playfield to explore !
The outer reef slope is a deep place where encounters with majestic animals are common: turtles, barracudas, trevallies,… On the other side of the barrier reef, the outer reef is the last limit before the blue of the open ocean. Snorkeling there with your private guide is a true adventure.
You can also explore with us the cracks of the reef with spectacular reliefs: a rich marine life is living here ! The cracks are spectacular relievescreated by the waves breaking on the reef. These underwater valleys are great for photos, for freediving and for lobsters by night.
