One of the best snorkeling experiences anywhere is a drift snorkeling excursion in Tahaa, French Polynesia. At the edge of the coral reef, ocean water breaks creating a current through a channel of coral and fish. You truly drift from near the ocean side of the motu down towards a lagoon. This excursion offered by local operators through Windstar Cruises in the area is extremely popular and this video shows why. The aquatic life and experience of the drift is simply unparalleled. It will be a SomedayTrips memory that you will cherish for years. If you are traveling on the 7 or 11-day cruise by Windstar, it should be at the top of your list of excursions if you love the water. We took the 11-day Windstar Cruise and the Tahaa Drift Snorkeling was one of our favorite excursions on the trip. Read more about our fantastic French Polynesia Windstar cruise here.
