« Awesome vacation!! We enjoyed every minute of our 6 days aboard the Niyati Plongee with Valou and JP. We were 2 couples traveling together and it was wonderful having the boat to ourselves! » (march 2017)
« An Awesome Experience! Firstly, Niyati (yacht) is a very well maintained, comfortable, spacious area in which to be accommodated… Secondly, the host and hostess are very accommodating, helpful and knowledgeable about the islands (and all that they have to offer a tourist - i.e. pearl farm tours, vanilla plantation tours, Polynesian lunches, and the best restaurants), not to mention all the diving info! … Thirdly, the diving sites we sampled were excellent! » (februar 2017)
« Simply The Best …Valerie is the best instructor in the world ( over 7500 dives!) with safety for the guests a number one priority. We have a lot to compare with as we have done dives in Egypt, Indonesia, Belize , Maldives and Zanzibar. Jean Pierre who is a very experienced sailor and a great story teller was always giving us interesting information about the ship, the sailing and about local flora and fauna… We travel around the world six months per year wand we are not the easiest people to satisfy, yet we cannot wait to come back for another cruse and do our 2nd level of diving and explore new island because this is the best way to see Polynesia… (Januar 16)
The Leeward Island or the Tuamotus ?
Allow us to give you some elements to help the customers in their choice of destination between the Leeward Islands or the Tuamotus:
The 2 destinations offer fabulous diving spots and unique encounters with marine life. The diving spots of the Leeward Islands are more varied and more accessible at every level, including for beginners (first dive and course possible on board), they allow for the diver to discover big fish: grey reef sharks, blacktip and whitetip sharks, lemon sharks, manta and eagle rays... The Tuamotu diving spots offer more possibilities of exceptional encounters, such dolphins and hammerhead sharks. However the dives are more advanced due to the current and possibility of diving at a greater depth, so they are more adapted to the advanced divers (second level and more).
Finally the dive spots at Tuamotu amount almost only into pass, the fact of being in cruise does not bring particular advantage. In the Leeward Islands the cruise formula allows to discover inaccessible sites to the « classics » dive centers and we can go on spots more known at time of low attendance; generally we manage to NEVER meet other divers under the water …
Leeward Islands are richer at the cultural side, there are more interesting visits on islands, the landscapes are more varied (mountains until 1000m) They also offer more comfortable conditions for anchorage (shelters of reliefs, that we have not at Tuamotu islands!) and navigation (the islands are closer and the sea is easier in Leewards Island).
Dive into the enchanted world of coral and tropical fishes.
Explore the deep blue on your dives withsharks, rays, tuna , napolean, barracuda fishes or turtles.
All year round warm clear water, featuring varied sites (at Leeward islands),includingcoral gardens, and pass dives,among many others all filled with lovely submerged splendors, for novice or expert.
