On a typical day we offer up to 3 day dives however the 3rd day dive may be substituted for a night dive when the boat is anchored within a lagoon. A 7-night itinerary provides for between 18-20 dives.
The diving day aboard the French Polynesia Master is scheduled as follows:- Light Breakfast followed by a briefing and Dive 1. Full Breakfast, relaxation period, briefing and Dive 2. Lunch, relaxation period, briefing and Dive 3. Snack relaxation period. Dinner. Guests may also take the opportunity to visit the islands and walk upon the pristine beaches.
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 to be expected and it is therefore recommended divers have experience beyond beginner level 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.

This Seminole Scuba Safari and diving trip will take you on game drives through some of the most famous parks in Tanzania; Tarangire, Ngorongoro Crater, and the Serengeti. In Tarangire you can expect large herds of elephants and buffalo along with other animal and bird sightings. Ngorongoro Crater is the largest unbroken caldera in the world, raising 2286 meters above sea level, with walls rising up to 610 meters from the crater floor, Ngorongoro is known for having the most densely packed concentration of wildlife in Africa. Serengeti in the Masai language means “endless plains” which describes the 6000 square mile park perfectly. The variety of wildlife in the Serengeti is endless, and on your game drives you should see the ‘Big Five’ (lion, leopard, buffalo, elephant and rhino) as well as huge herds of zebra and wildebeest.
After an eventful safari we will board our planes to Arusha and then on to Zanzibar before we get settled on the south-east coast of the island and enjoy a weeks’ worth of diving in the azure waters of the Indian Ocean. During our stay in Zanzibar we will have an opportunity to visit the Unesco World heritage site Stone Town and take in some amazing diving. On our latest trip we saw many things such as; Turtles, Grouper, Frogfish, Nudibranchs, Big Schools of fish, Rays, Napoleon Wrasse and Dolphins.
