After our stay in the so-called Society Islands (Tahiti, BoraBora & Moorea), we move on to a less touristy area of French Polynesia, the Tuamotu Archipelago.

Tikehau - The atoll is the first on the standard route through the Tuamotu area. Honestly, we didn't even have it on the screen because it isn't particularly advertised compared to the 2 others. Luckily we decided to stay. We lived in a water bungalow on a dreamy little resort island. From the island we went for walks, canoe tours and dives in an untouched landscape. The atoll's most famous dive site is a remarkable gathering place for a variety of marine life.


Fakarava – perhaps the most remote and lonely place I have been so far... A breathtaking landscape, untouched by humanity. First, let's take a bird's eye view of the surroundings. Only a small number of people can stay in the Raimiti guesthouse. Rooms without windows or doors – pure contact with the environment – far away from the distractions of everyday life. Between this exclusive piece of nature lies one of the most spectacular diving sites in the world - the Wall of Sharks. Inside the channel there are hundreds of gray reef sharks, at the end of the channel we find a very healthy garden full of corals. A fantastic end to our trip through French Polynesia.


Rangiroa - It`s the most crowded island of the Tuamotu Atoll. The main attraction is the tiputa channel with its location loyal dolphins. They like the divers and keep a close eye on who visits them. As usual on channels with strong currents, you will find a wide variation of different marine life.

Beautiful footage and beautiful area. Can you tell us about any difficulties flying a drone in these islands- e.g.: permits needed? Any restrictions. ???

I am still awaiting a reply to my inquiry about drone flying regulations in this area. If you are replying, please also tell us the names of the resorts, diving facilities, locations of the islands.
