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

Pension Tetamanu Village

Simple .... and simply divine

Tetamanu Village Resort is situated in the old village of Tetamanu where the first church of Tuamotu was built - and in a UNESCO biosphere reserve.

6 overwater bungalows close to the pass of Tumakohua, with individual toilets and showers are all equipped with a double bed.

Tetamanu Diving Center is located at Tetamanu Village and has a 30' boat equipped for diving and transfer.

The Tumakohua pass where Tetamanu Diving Center is located hosts multitudes of fish and sharks. There is a great drift dive which begins at the ocean side and moves towards the lagoon side. A depth of 20-30m enables you to discover the pass ecosystem: marble groupers, unicorn fish and napoleons and more swim above a background of pink coral.

In the pass, you will observe a cave where you find sharks like to hang out. This dive finishes in front of the restaurant next to the piles of the pension Tetamanu Village.

The Diving Center places at your disposal a boat to reach other fabulous diving sites where you'll be captivated by the beauty and the richness of the underwater life and thrilled by your encounters with large predators.
