Avapehi is a site full of unique surprises and the more you go down, the more there is to see. You’ll find jackfish at 7 meters, barracudas at 15 meters and at 25 meters, you’ll see redfish and manta rays dancing in current. There are also about a hundred resident gray sharks at Avapehi.
A site that’s accessible for divers of all levels. It is a slight underwater slope, generally sheltered from the swell and current, where you can explore the coral. You’ll be accompanied by inoffensive blacktip sharks with their entourage of tiny suckerfish.
There are a multitude of nautical activities in Huahine other than scuba diving, such as va’a, the traditional Polynesian outrigger canoe, kayaking and kitesurfing. We also recommend a visit to the interesting little museum in the fare Pote’e hut next to the marae of Maeva, where you’ll learn more about Huahine’s sacred traditions.
