“Fun to see, but doesn't take that long”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2012

we went on an average day for waves and it was fun. I saw it before when it was big and it was really cool! on a flat water day, don't even bother.
we did that on the same trip as going to see the water falls next door.

“Neat, but underwhelming”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2012

We went on a stormy day, so the blowhole was in full action. It's neat to see, but not as impressive as I thought it would be.

“Blowholes are awesome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2012

Trou du Souffleur is a blowhole near a lovely black sand beach. It's different from other blowholes that I've seen, as instead of shooting a wide geyser of water it was shooting a narrow and focused jet of mist. It was a nice place to stop on one of our drives around the island of Tahiti-Nui.

“Blowholes and beautiful coastline”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2012

There are four blowholes - three on the cliff face at the end of the viewing area and one above the old coast road. Its a beautiful scenic spot, close to the other main nature attraction - the three waterfalls and both are completely free. We hired a car for two days and stopped here twice - 4 year old was mesmerised for over 20 minutes just watching the sea surge onto the rocks and then the blowholes blow. We were there on a public holiday and it was nice to get out of the resorts and see the locals out surfing and picnicing and feel like seeing some of the real Tahiti.
