Travel Tips for a Scuba Diving Vacation in Tahiti

A Tropical Climate
French Polynesia enjoys a warm tropical climate. The average temperature stays in the low 80’s. The islands are always cooled by the mild trade winds of the Pacific.

Water temperature remains fairly constant. It averages 79F in the winter season and 84F during the summer. From the ocean surface to 166' below there is only a one-half degree difference in temperature. Most people dive in a 2/3 mm wetsuit.

Entry Requirements
Nationals of the USA and Canada are allowed to stay three months without a visa. You must have a valid US Passport VALID FOR SIX MONTHS FROM TRAVEL DATE and a return OR CONTINUING ticket. Also, don't forget your dive certification card.

Supplemental Baggage
While traveling within the islands international divers may now benefit from a supplemental baggage waiver. Normally when flying Air Tahiti, passengers are allowed baggage up to 20 kilos (44 lbs). Now however, divers may bring 25 kilos (55 lbs). To qualify you must present your dive certification card and international ticket at the check-in counter.

Time Difference
Tahiti and Her Islands are 2 hours behind Los Angeles. If it is noon in Los Angeles, it is 10 am in Tahiti. However, during Daylight Savings, the difference is 3 hours.

Good To Know
Should you encounter any coral cuts, the best way to prevent an infection from forming is to apply fresh lime juice to the cut.

Travel & Dive Insurance
Travel insurance is not included with the packages and other arrangements offered by Dive Tahiti Blue; however for your protection and peace of mind, we highly recommend you insure yourself against trip cancellation, medical emergencies or illnesses and baggage loss. We also strongly recommend you purchase dive insurance. For more information about dive insurance, contact DAN at www.DiversAlertNetwork.org.
