Where Is The Best Snorkeling In The Pacific Islands?

All of our Pacific Island vacations, whether by small ship or lodge, offer snorkeling. The best snorkeling in the Pacific Islands depends on what you want to experience. Consider a Tahiti vacation to explore the Tuamotu Archipelago’s Fakarava—one of the largest atolls in French Polynesia and part of a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. Search for dolphins, whales and other sea life in the Humpback National Marine Sanctuary off of Maui. On an Easter Island vacation, learn why the waters of Rapa Nui are famous for their clarity. Or swim alongside colossal-yet-harmless whale sharks in Indonesia. Our insightful Adventure Specialists can help you narrow down the options, and our snorkeling tips will help you experience the best of snorkeling the Pacific Islands.

Finish each day with an artistic and thoughtful meal, made with only the finest quality ingredients and authentic flavors.

Pacific Island Vacations

As I drift off to sleep I begin to dream of the amazing experiences that I couldn't even have imagined only seven days ago. I dream of diving with manta rays, of Pele, the goddess of fire, of paddle boarding at Shark's Fin Cove and swimming in the cool water under the cascading falls of Moâ'oula.
