pen ink well goldA note from Dom  ... Flamboyant French Polynesia

I still dream about the heart-pounding encounters I had in the Tuamotus, drifting wildly on raging currents through the passes, surrounded by countless numbers of magnificent pelagics riding the tide into the lagoon, as if tobogganing in the Alps!  Grey reef sharks, black tips, mantas, napoleon wrasses flying above me in droves.       read more ....

Tahiti, the quintessential tropical holiday destination, offers easy, generally pleasant diving almost anywhere you choose to get into the water.  But for divers seeking challenge, excitement and some of the most spectacular underwater thrills that exist anywhere in the world, it's Fakarava and/or Rangiroa in the Tuamotu Archipelago that you want ... or, if you're lucky enough to hit it right, you may be able to secure a space on a rare cruise through the Marquesas.  

Imagine an intimate group - maximum 8 divers - on your own comfy catamaran (you'll find two of these on our site - Aqua Tiki II & Itemata) - diving the rushing waters of some of the most exciting pass dives in the world with sharks & mantas & more!   Or choose the other end of the spectrum and go with the brand new & incredibly sturdy French Polynesia Master. Check out our liveaboards & land-based diving suggestions by clicking on the menu at the top right of this page.

When you're ready to hear more, I'm an email away and will respond to your request with any additional details that you wish.      Cheers, Dom
