Glass Bottom Boat
Duration: 1 hour
Tour Code: rgi-001
Get acquainted with the coral gardens and tropical fish of Rangiroa during this scenic glass-bottom boat tour.
Depart the pier aboard a glass-bottom boat, then slowly float over the huge coral heads that cluster in shallow areas inside the Tiputa Channel. Along the way, you will see a colorful world full of parrot fish, butterfly fish, and surgeon fish through the large windows.
