French Polynesia October 2020

This one has us so excited! The Polynesian Master is the First and Only liveaboard in French Polynesia and because of the remote location there are no plans for more. We have secured the boat for a 7 night charter in October 2020 during the Humpback migration. 

Our plan is to spend 3 days before the Cruise free diving with the Humpback Whales and then do the 7 night cruise aboard the incredible Polynesian Master touring the outer islands of Tuamoto and Society. After the cruise the plan is to spend 3 days diving with the Tiger sharks and other marine life that Tahiti is known for.

Just say the words “French Polynesia” and what springs to mind are a plethora of small islands with stunning white beaches, surrounded by crystal clear warm water. Situated in the heart of the Pacific Ocean, this island archipelago is home to some of the most wondrous dive sites, where hundreds of hungry sharks gather in schools to be joined by manta rays and bottle-nosed dolphins. Diving Rangiroa’s reefs and channels you can expect to see grey reef hammerhead, black tips, silky, tiger and silver tip shark species cruising the reef, hunting on schools of snapper and fusiliers. Whilst drift diving through the 1200m wide channel at North Fakarava Island, you can experience incredible shark action, see huge Napoleon wrasses and witness marbled groupers spawning. A typical diving day will see you cruising through channels and exploring the outer reefs of the atolls, yet there are numerous of shallow dive sites within the Tuamotu Archipelago, each with stunning hard corals, sheltering all manner of crustaceans and molluscs.

Built of steel, the French Polynesia Master plies the waters of this island archipelago, welcoming aboard 25 guests for 7 or 10 night dive safaris. Our 4 decks provide ample space for relaxation and dive equipment and camera preparation. Our experienced crew will ensure you receive only the highest quality service on your diving vacation.

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.
