Easter Island holds many secrets, but only by exploring its infamous islands off the coast can you unlock them all to truly understand the majesty and mystery of this place.To do this, we depart for the three islands by boat, and make our way past Motu Kao Kao, in which a rock 20 meters high juts out of the sea. It's vertical walls make climbing to the top a near impossible feat, although one can't help imagine the ancient tribes testing their limits. Beyond Motu Kao Kao lie Motu Iti and Motu Nui, bird sanctuaries that hold a variety of magnificent seabird, one of them infamous to the story of Easter Island. Learn how the Moai culture vanished, and how the cult of Tangata Manu, or Birdmen came about. Enthrall yourself with the story of a deadly ritual in which the men of the island would brave the raging Pacific waters to collect an egg from the small islands, and how important this competition truly was. Finally, partially follow in their footsteps if you wish as you dawn your snorkel and escape into the majestic blue waters, all before we are greeted by the 7 Explorers as we make our way back to the island.
