Home to some of the most incredible dive sites, this Dive Safari Adventure will include hundreds of hungry schooling Sharks, Manta Rays and Bottle-nosed Dolphins. Rangiroa’s Reefs and Channels, North Fakarava Island and Tuamotu Archipelago will reveal Hammerheads, schools of Snapper and Fusiliers, Napoleon Wrasse, spawning Marbled Groupers, stunning Hard Corals and all manner of Crustaceans and Molluscs.

WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT

The liveaboard French Polynesia Master is 140 feet (42.6m) long and 33 feet (10m) wide. The 12 experienced and friendly English speaking crew members will ensure every needs of the guests are met. Aboard the French Polynesia Master, 26 guests will be accommodated in 13 spacious and air conditioned cabins.

Guests will have their choice cabins located on all three Decks. Double/Twin bed cabins, 2 cabins which can be used as Single Occupancy. All rooms come complete with private bathrooms with hot showers, windows or portholes, air-conditioning with individual climate controls, toiletries and towels, reading lights, clothing storage, safe, bedding, room for luggage, 220V and 2-pin plugs with adapters available.

When not enjoying the underwater delights, guest of the French Polynesia Master have a variety of entertainment options. The community relaxation areas are divided between the Middle and Upper Decks and include a spacious indoor Lounge Area, camera set up station and guest storage drawers. The air conditioned room includes comfortable bench seating and a plasma screen for watching your favorite movies.

Relax in comfort on the shaded Outdoor Lounge area on the rear of the Upper Deck. Work on your tan on the luxurious Upper Level Sun Deck and soak up the stunning views of the French Polynesian islands. Have a drink at theBbar with your buddy or for the more adventurous, go Snorkeling or embark on a Land Excursion.

The French Polynesia Master not only offers great diving in French Polynesia, it also wants to provide a great above-water experience.

The cuisine is crucial as outstanding food is needed to fuel the action-packed diving. 3 meals a day will be served buffet style for Divers’ convenience. The Polynesians love food which is clearly reflected when they are organizing a tamara’a (banquet). If you like fish, you will enjoy the best tuna “mahi mahi” (dolphin, swordfish or thazard) in the world. Grilled, chaud-froid, carpaccio, tartare, sashimi or sushi, are local ways to enjoy the fish that you experience in these islands. One suggestion, try your fish grilled with Taha’a vanilla sauce, it is amazingly delicous. For the sea fruit lovers, once again the French Polynesia will satisfy you: “Pahua” (giant clam), “Vana” (sea urchin), Korori, Langouste, “Varo” (squille), “Kaveu” (coconut crab) and “Maoa” etc…  In short a multitude of delights from the Polynesian waters.

In French Polynesia you can also eat the French cuisine, made with local products and lamb and beef from New Zealand. Snacks and beverages are provided throughout the day to ensure no one goes hungry on this dive vacation! Adult beverages are available at the onboard Bar to purchase.

What should I bring with me?

Essential items include T-shirts, shorts, swim wear, long trousers / sarong/ long skirt, sturdy footwear for island visits and a warm jacket or pullover for cooler nights.
