  Scuba diving in Raiatea
by Helga67

The clear tropical waters of French Polynesia are ideal for year-round diving. You can choose between diving in the lagoons, passes and outer coral reefs. The underwater scenery is different from island to island, but magnificent on every spot. The average water temperature is 29°C (85°F) during the summer months of November to March and 25°C (79°F) during the winter months of April to October. Underwater visibility is normally good up to distances of 30 meters (100 feet).
