Diving in Ra'iatea & Taha'a

This 50m vessel that sank in August 1900 is easily accessible, right off the former hotel Raiatea Hawaiki Nui, lying on its side on a sandy bottom, between 18m and 29m. Look for the resident fish that hide in the darker parts, including groupers, soldierfish, Moorish idols, lionfish, a couple of moray eels and crustaceans. Visibility is not the strong point of this dive.
