To not even look underwater when in french Polynesia is to miss out on the majority of what these fabulous islands actually have to offer.

From the north to the south, the temperature varies little. Two seasons exist: The austral summer when the warmest month is march and the austral winter when the coolest month is August. In Tahiti the average temperature is 26°-28°C( °F).

In summer it is quite humid. The water and air temperatures are at their maximum, and the rainfall is slightly higher at this time of year.
In winter the weather is slightly drier with the water temperature cooler but never falling below 25°C ( °F). It is the time of year when the south-eastern winds (Mara'amu) are blowing strong bringing cooler air up from the south.
