Due to extremely stringent regulations, SCUBA diving in French Polynesia is outsourced with a local Dive center. These regulations do make for some of the MOST unspoiled and healthy corals in the world. TradeWinds' organizes diving through a local Dive center and TradeWinds' guest receive a special discount. Diving is offered in the mornings on two days, and one or two-tank dives are possible on each of these days. Your captain will book your diving for you after discussing the options with the group on arrival day.
Diving is paid directly to the Dive center at a cost of US$90.00 (XPF8,000) per one-tank dive and US$160.00 (XPF15,000) per two-tank dive for certified divers, and US$100.00 (XPF9,000) for an introductory dive for non-certified divers. The price includes: a professional local dive guide, all diving equipment (including regulators), drinks and snacks while on the dive boat between the two dives.
Depending on the number of divers onboard, weather conditions, experience and availability of the dive school our guests can to do up to 4 dives per week. At check-in we will ask you to fill out a booking form and a medical form and we will pass this to your crew so that they finalize the bookings.
If you would like to dive before or after your charter we recommend Fun Dive on Moorea, and will be adding more recommendations soon. These will all offer small group, personalized diving experiences with an emphasis on safety and fun.
