Why Dive French Polynesia?


Well, maybe the question should be in fact: Why not dive French Polynesia?

Remotely located halfway between New Zealand and Hawaii, French Polynesia comprises a huge array of stunning lush, green, mountainous tropical atolls featuring idyllic places like Bora Bora and Moorea. Taking into account the picturesque over-the-water bungalows, powder-white beaches and paradisiacal settings, it is no wonder that French Polynesia has been a treasured destination for many years. Picture paradise and we are sure you’ll conjure up notions of French Polynesia.


If you think French Polynesia couldn’t get any better, think again. French Polynesia is host to one of the best and most exciting liveaboard itineraries in the world: the Tuamotu Islands. Experience the numerous underwater treasures French Polynesia is famous for: the walls of sharks patrolling the passes between the atolls, manta & eagle rays, dolphins and much more. Pristine coral reefs, teeming with colourful fish life will inspire you with awe, while the underwater seascapes and vertical drop-offs may be slightly vertigo inducing. The crystal clear water is bluer than blue; a bright shade of blue/turquoise you will rarely find elsewhere.


As currents in the channels can be turbulent, we recommend our guests have dive experience beyond beginner level plus Nitrox certification to get the most out of the diving.

Our recently refitted M/V French Polynesia Master is your luxury home for the duration of this adventure. The boat comfortably welcomes 25 guests and is currently the only continuously operating liveaboard in French Polynesia.
