Voice of Travelers to Rangiroa

Pearl Diving in Rangiroa Was an Amazing Experience

Like most people, I have often dreamed of a South Pacific getaway, but could never afford the tickets to go. My new husband bought us two tickets for Rangiroa, so that I could fulfill this dream. The flight into Rangiroa on Air Tahiti was very cool on the small plane. The pilot marked out other islands and interesting features as we flew into Rangiroa. The tour guide in Rangiroa that we bought tickets for convinced us to go diving for pearls. It was an incredible experience to go pearl diving in Rangiroa, and well worth the ticket price. I cannot wait until I can afford my next ticket to got pearl diving in Rangiroa again.

Our Fishing Trip to Rangiroa

My friends and I have bought tickets for fishing in a lot of places around the world, but never the South Pacific, so we were extra excited when we got some tickets to fly to Rangiroa. We bought some first class tickets with Air France because we wanted to be comfortable for the long flight to Tahiti before the short flight to Rangiroa. A few of my buddies had never flown on first class tickets before, so they were really impressed by the experience. The fishing in Rangiroa is world class. We bought some charter tickets with a local company, and they showed us all the best places to fish.

Scuba Diving in Rangiroa

Scuba diving is one of my favorite hobbies, and I have flown on tickets to great scuba diving spots in lots of different places. Rangiroa is one of the most popular destinations for scuba diving tickets in the world, and I have planned to visit Rangiroa for many years. I waited until Air New Zealand was having a ticket sale for Rangiroa, and bought myself one economy class ticket for a great price. The flight into Tahiti was not very busy, so I got a lot of attention from the staff. In Rangiroa I bought tickets for a professional scuba diving tour, which is the best way to find the nicest scuba diving spots.
