Don't forget your underwater camera if you plan to snorkel in the waters surrounding the islands of French Polynesia. Cruise ships visiting the South Pacific during a transpacific crossing most often spend a day at Papeete on the island of Tahiti. Bora Bora and Moorea are other favorite islands for snorkeling. The clear waters are full of coral and tropical fish in so many colors and sizes. If you're lucky, you may even experience an encounter with an octopus, stingray or turtle!

Where is your favorite snorkeling or diving spot?
Of all the places where we have snorkeled, our favorites (so far) have been in French Polynesia. Our first stay in the area was for 10 days, and although we only had 1 day during our transpacific cruise, we knew that we wanted to snorkel again!
The onboard excursion credit that we received would pay for part of a shore excursion offered by the ship, so we decided to go that route. Even though we hit some rain on the way to our snorkeling spot, the water was clear and we loved seeing an octopus among other sea creatures!
