For seasoned vets and first timers alike, Ninamu Resort offers unparalleled snorkeling experiences. Your first peek under water at Ninamu Resort is an unforgettable experience. The clarity of of the water, and the unimaginable abundance of life is almost unbelievable. The Tuamotu atolls are world renowned for their undersea life. On a visit in 1987, Jacques Cousteau’s research group made a study of Tikehau’s lagoon and discovered that it contains a greater variety of fish species than any other place in French Polynesia.
Huge schools colorful of fish, and intricately sculpted coral heads wait for you just off our beach. Swimming with manta rays, sea turtles, and even dolphins are just a short boat ride away.
SCUBA diving in Tikehau is world class. While Ninamu Resort does not offer SCUBA services, guests can book with Tikehau Plongee. Tikehau Plongee picks up guests directly from Ninamu Resort and ferries to the various dive sites around the atoll.
