Some of the best French Polynesian dive sites can be visited from the comfort of the recently built French Polynesia Master. Offering year-round diving in warm, clear Pacific Ocean waters and views of spectacular white sandy beaches, many would call this cluster of small islands a diver’s paradise. What’s even better is that this area is not yet a popular diving hub, so there is still a fantastic amount of marine life to see. Shark enthusiasts will appreciate the many shark species that can be seen in French Polynesia including hammerheads, grey reef sharks, tiger sharks, silky sharks and black tip sharks. Divers are also often treated to manta ray and dolphin sightings in French Polynesia, where the reefs are colorful and there are a number of wrecks to see too.

One of the best things about diving on the French Polynesia Master is that we were the only liveaboard around!

That meant that there was plenty to see when we visited these magnificent dive sites. Manta rays, hammerheads, enormous groupers… we were able to see it all and didn’t share the water with any other liveaboard divers which was great!

Although some of the sites were technically dangerous, our dive guides were very safety conscious and professional and set our minds at ease. The liveaboard itself was well-suited to cater for internationals, even down to the converter outlets available all around the boat.

Overall it was an excellent trip and one that I would highly recommend.
