Easter Island boat tours

Easter island boat rides

Easter Island boat tours are one of the most complete and attractive activities that can be done on Rapa Nui, as they give the opportunity to enjoy marine life and appreciate the island from a different perspective.


General information

Another activity offered on Easter Island is to go on boats rides, which enables you to appreciate the island from a different perspective.

The most popular ride is the one that goes to the southwest coast, opposite the Rano Kau volcano, and gets the visitors closer to Motu Nui, Motu Iti and Motu Kao Kao. These motus were once the stage for the Birdman Competition, which decided who would rule the island every year.


Climbing down the motus is forbidden, because there are still birds who nest there and they are protected. However, this tour combines with the possibility of snorkeling in this calm area of the sea where there’s greater water visibility (up to 60 meters).

For those who want to get into the sea and practice a little exercise, there is also the possibility of renting a kayak and traveling from Anakena beach to Ovahe. Also in those points you can snorkel and observe the marine fauna and corals, so that you will enjoy the ocean from several points of view.
