Built of steel, the French Polynesia Master is the newest liveaboard to
ply the waters of this island archipelago, welcoming aboard 25 guests
for 7 or 10 night dive safaris. The 4 decks provide ample space for
relaxation and dive equipment and camera preparation. And the
experienced crew ensure you receive only the highest quality service on
your diving vacation.
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.
Important Information about diving French Polynesia:
This itinerary involves some long distance travel and whilst we attempt to ensure the number of dives we have scheduled is fulfilled, bad weather can hinder the boat’s ability to reach a specified dive site in good time. Many islands require the yacht to move within the atoll for safe overnight anchorage. Your cruise director and Captain will therefore plan the best route for entry to the atolls and to hit the channel currents at the optimum time for diving. We wish to show you the very best diving possible yet the safety of all on board remains paramount. In the unlikely event we are unable to reach a specified dive site; we always do our best in offering diving at alternative locations.
Diving in French Polynesia can be challenging, even for the experienced diver. At many sites currents can be strong and whilst visibility is typically 20m+ it may diminish due to an influx of nutrients. Due to the strength of currents, diving at night is not always an option. We will offer 4 day dives, yet the 4th day dive may be substituted for a night dive where suitable.
