Upon arrival, you will disembark the boat for a guided walk across an uninhabited islet, or motu, located just off the coast.

The drift can be moderate to strenuous depending on the strength of the current. The drift is done in a single line with one snorkeling guide leading the 12 snorkelers spaced 10 feet apart and one snorkeling guide closing up on the group This area abounds with a spectacular variety of tropical fish and amazing coral. Upon returning to the boat, refreshments and additional snorkeling time will be made available before you are transferred back to Motu Mahana.
