The boat ride to the drift snorkeling location revealed the most beautiful aqua and teal-toned lagoon waters that we've ever seen and a view of Le Taha'a Island Resort & Spa, an overwater bungalow resort that you might just want to put on your luxury resort list for a future someday trip. It looked absolutely stunning from the water.
The drift snorkeling was a fun adventure as we walked across a motu (small islet) to an area in the shallow clear waters where we entered the water and just let the current take us across the most beautiful and amazing coral surrounded by a spectacular variety of colorful fish while our guide led the way while we weaved and turned through the coral garden.
It's important to stay in a horizontal floating position in the water so you don't touch the coral. At times we would be within a few inches of the coral. If you’re not comfortable in the water, this may be a challenging activity and several people on our tour got some minor scratches.
The video was captured with a gopro 5 black in 4k on the end of a selfie stick. The speed as seen in the video is accurately recorded without adjustments. What do you think? Could this be one of your best snorkeling experiences ever?
