ABOUT THIS LIVEABOARD

This 10-night and 11-day itinerary aboard the French Polynesia Master takes you from Papeete to Rangiora and finishing in Fakarava. Each of these destinations offers wonderous diving. 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. As such 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 mollusk. So for photographers, there are pelagic fish as well as Marco species available. Once finished with diving the four decks, provide ample space for relaxation, and with space, you dive equipment and camera preparation is easy. Our experienced crew will ensure you receive only the highest quality service on your diving vacation. (The sail from Papeete to Rangiora is an overnight sail on the first evening)
