A very special dive. You will be dropped off on a demonstration Pearl Farm where you will discover the several ways to conserve the clamps. Sometimes, a huge barracuda stay with us during this time. Then we move to a shallow area to discover Tahitian sculptures (Tikis) that were sunk here years ago. Very good for photos in crystal clear and shallow water. Then we go down by a slope of white sand and start the long drift dive (1.5 to 2 miles), following the natural lagoon channel. Just let the current push you and enjoy the dramatic declivity of corral walls ; be very careful to be able to see the schools of eagle rays(special briefing for that) and the white tip sharks that stay hidden in corral caves or just lying on the sand. The end is on a corral table with many corral fishes and sand fishes. A wild dive we enjoy, just because we have to spend a long time looking for the specific fauna. An incredible experience, Bathys Diving Moora's exclusive…

One of our favorite spot, 4 minutes boat from the dive center. Even if you do it 10 times, you will always discover new things, as many fishes move from one side of the island to the other, passing threw this area. But above all, you will enjoy to see the huge moray eels, scarring but so nice, and friendly sea turles. Another unique experience that you will see again and again on the video.

* Papetoai ocean
- Ocean dive 8 min. (distance by speed boat )
- Moorage depth : 15 meters (45 feet)
- Max depth : 29 meters (90 feet) or more
Not so fishy than others, this spot is a wild area with very nice and thin corral. Near Opunohu pass, this site is a « passing threw » area that can bring exceptional surprises.

* Opunohu Corral Wall
- Ocean dive 8 min.(distance by speed boat )
- Moorage depth : 15 meters (45 feet)
- Max depth : 20 to 30 meters (60 to 90 feet)
The show begin onboard with the best view of “the most beautiful island of the world”. Just see once Opunohu bay from this moorage area and you will understand what we want to say. It’s also a very protected area for East winds and waves. Once in water, you will discover a very special dive for this island, with great corral walls and several corral canyons. You can do several dives in the same area : one goes deeper to the « small rose garden », a specific kind of corral. Other goes to the big wall. And the last one can finish near the Sharks’ dining room. But in all of them, you will be accompanied by sea turtles, sharks and tropical fishes and probably see huge moray eels before crossing from one canyon to the other, staying in middle of clear water.

* Sharks’ Meeting dive
- Ocean dive 10 min. (distance by speed boat )
- Moorage depth : 15 meters (45 feet)
- Max depth : 30 meters (90 feet)
Not really a difficult dive, but it’s the deepest spot for shark feeding and divers must control their air consumption not to run out of air to fast. But this spot is very spectacular for the big lemon sharks that come to the feeding. The corral is also very nice.

* Opunohu Canyons
- Ocean dive 12 min. (distance by speed boat )
- Moorage depth : 15 meters (45 feet)
- Max depth : 30 meters (90 feet)
One of our favorite spots for shark feeding. Kneeing on the bottom of a small canyon, you will see plenty of small fishes, black tip sharks, and of course the biggest lemon sharks. After the feeding, you will move to see more, and you will see that there is a lot to see. At the end of the dive, just before the safety stop, we usually stop to see pretty anemones with clown fishes. Don’t forget to keep some photos for them.

* The Roses Garden
- Ocean dive 12 min.(distance by speed boat )
- Moorage depth : 15 meters (45 feet)
- Max depth : 40 meters (120 feet) and much more ...
The moorage is the same than Opunohu Canyons but we sometimes do it drifting and then join the end of the feeding. The roses garden is the deepest dive we do, a great dive, world famous. But sorry, not everybody can do it. It’s a decompression dive. For safety reasons, you must be rescue diver at least to be allowed to do it and have be done at least one previous dive with us.
