Diving the Marquesas Islands

The Marquesas Islands are the farthest island group from any continental landfall on earth; they have had little change over the centuries. This region is not easy to get to, as it is far removed from it all and the islands sit like little untouched jewels in the middle of the vast South Pacific Ocean. The Marquesas Islands are perfect for every type of diver, from the beginner to the technical. You will find excellent diving conditions all year-round; however, you won’t find as high visibility as in other regions. This place is worth the trip; as soon as you arrive, you’ll be rewarded with lush, rainforest-covered volcanic peaks that plunge into crystalline blue waters, tall majestic waterfalls, richly preserved Polynesian cul-ture, and sweet, friendly locals. Although the diving here isn’t as good as in its neighboring archipelagos due to lower coral diversity, The Marquesas have massive animal encounters and thrilling underwater topography that will astonish you. Nutrient rich waters and rushing currents bring in gigantic manta rays that are up to 16 feet long (5 meters). In eve-ry dive, you will also encounter dragon eels, different types of rays such as leopard and marble, friendly dolphins in the wild, and even different types of sharks.
