Keep reading to discover some of the activities on offer.
Boat trip and snorkelling
This boat trip takes you to the islets that are located close to the Rano Kau Volcano. It was here that the Bird Man Competition, also known as Tangata Manu, took place. This is an interesting tour because, on top of the view, guests are invited to delve a little deeper into the cultural history of the Rapa Nui. What’s more, this tour gives you the chance to enjoy the water and to snorkel, particularly because of the incredible underwater visibility.
The structure of this activity varies, depending on whether you have a diving license or not. If you don’t have a license, you can sign up to an initiation dive that descends to a maximum of 12 meters deep. If you do hold a diving license, however, you’ll be able to dive among the moais and along the cliffs, as long as weather and climate conditions permit.
