French Polynesia Diving Itinerary
On a typical day we offer up to 3 day dives however the third day dive may be substituted for a sunset or night dive when the boat is anchored within a lagoon.
The diving day aboard the French Polynesia Far & Away Adventures is scheduled as follows:
Light breakfast followed by a briefing and Dive 1
Full breakfast, relaxation period, briefing and Dive 2
Snack, relaxation period, briefing and Dive 3
Guests may also take the opportunity to visit the islands and walk upon the pristine beaches.
Our diving itineraries take you through the Tuamotu Island chain, from Rangiroa to Fakarava, with a choice of 7 or 10 night safaris between these two hot spots, as well as a Fakarava-Fakarava 7-night loop which maximises the time spent in this UNESCO Biosphere Reserve.
Dive sites are typically channel or “Pass” dives and the route planning for each trip is highly dependent upon the incoming and out-going tides for each island. We dive the optimum tide for each site to bring you the ultimate in pelagic fish action. Strong currents and sometimes diminished visibility are to be expected and diving can be challenging here, even for the experienced diver. We highly recommend our guests are Nitrox-certified and have training beyond beginner level and a minimum experience of 50 dives, preferably in similar conditions to ensure maximum enjoyment. Dive sites also include outer reefs, plateaus and coral gardens found with the lagoon, where currents are less intense and many smaller creatures can be found.
Water temperatures throughout the year range from 24-28°C (60-82°F), with January-March being the warmest months and July-November the coolest. The cooler waters bring forth migrating humpback whales and the spawning of marbled groupers, with June/July being the optimum time to see them in large numbers.
