Tuamotu (cruise)

Introduction

Part of the French Polynesia archipelago, the Tuamotus are for many divers the ultimate destination, the one where the most amazing dives are expected. Made of 77 atolls and of a single tall island, the Tuamotus are spreading over a length of 1500 km and a width of 500 km, and are among the most isolated islands in the world. Two atolls are especially attractive for divers: Rangiroa, known for its famous pass and offering many accommodations and diving centers, and Fakarava, located more to the east and a perfect gateway for a cruise that will bring divers on more remote spots.

Because crossing the world to finally dive together with other groups at the same time is quite a pity, we are listing here diving sites located on the Fakarava atoll and on the neighbourhood, namely Toau and Kauehi atolls.

A general comment on prices in French Polynesia: they are stiff. A dive itself is one of the most expensive in the world; plus, since everything has to be imported, all products used in the daily life , including food, cost much more than anywhere else. And this is the same on every island of Polynesia. So if you even want to spend time on a tourist area like Moorea or Bora Bora, be ready to spend a lot of money...
