  1. The ferry is between Tahiti and Moorea. 30-45 minutes for about $30 roundtrip.
  2. We are on Tikehau now. On a prior PG cruise we did 6 nights post cruise at the Kia Ora. While I did dive I am not a die heart diver. If you just want to get back into it you may want to consider spending some time on Moorea post cruise and dive there. The ferry is an easy and economical way to get there and the diving is good.
  3. Clearly not the fault of PG if the Cook Islands is closed. What the issue I believe is would be the total lack of communication between PG and travelers. Since the Cook Islands will not be open I would guarantee that they have an alternate itinerary set. Why have they not shared this?? I would also guess that there is a tiny, tiny chance they could simply cancel the cruise (sorry for mentioning this).
  4. We initially planned 4 nights at the Pearl on Tikehau and then the 6/16 10 night cruise followed by 4 nights at the Hilton Moorea. With the cruise cancelled we are doing 4 nights at the Pearl, 7 at Ninamu, 1 at the IC Tahiti and then 6 at the Hilton Moorea. It has been too long since we have gotten away We moved our cruise to June of 2022.
  5. Our June 2021 cruise was cancelled but we are traveling as a land based vacation. We are rescheduled for a cruise in 2022. While a year away, and many changes may occur, how would you complete the required PCR test 72 hours prior to boarding if you have a precruise stay? Even without a precruise stay the 72 hours is tight. Coming from the east coast the latest I could leave NY is about 3:00 pm the day prior to the cruise. This means that I would have already used up 24 hours (actually 3o when adding in the time change) of the 72 hour window by the time I board. Realistically I don’t see how I could get tested close enough to my departure to meet the 72 hour window. if I have a precruise stay I’m not sure where a PCR test could be completed easily.
  6. You can contact The Six Passengers. They are a dive outfit that will also provide a snorkel trip which includes outside the pass to hopefully see and snorkel with dolphins as well as a snorkel in the aquarium.
  7. No reason to buy in advance unless you are taking a car on the ferry. Tons of room
  8. Although you may be able to check your bags through I think you will have to exit security when you arrive and then walk to the International Terminal and check in again. Although there is a tunnel which connects some of arrival terminals directly into the International Terminal (this bypasses another security check) I think you will have to go to the ATN counter which is outside of security. With the new rules regarding showing proof of vaccination, etc. I can't see any other way to do this other than going to the counter which is outside of security. IMHO 4 hours is more than enough time (more doesn't really accomplish anything as the ATN counter opens 3.5-4 hours prior to the flight.
  9. If I understand you correct your transpacific cruise will have limited stops in French Polynesia. If I were you i would stick to a land based vacation in FP as this allows you more time on a couple of islands and you can easily schedule to visit islands that you will not visit on your cruise. I have to agree that the Paul Gauguin is a great ship but it does not fit in with your schedule.
  10. Unknown but they may be concerned about a lot of cancellations due to the vaccination requirement. While France may have more tourists visit FP than the US on my previous PG cruises the travelers from France were in the minority.
  11. Just received notice that PG has cancelled all cruises through 8/21
  12. Steve. Do you have room for me and Hillary?
  13. Not sure so I wanted to reach out. Also not sure if group has been vaccinated. Looks to be challenging to go if the rules stand
  14. Gerry, do you have contact info for Ato on Fakarava?
  15. if this is the final rule it would appear unvaccinated people will be challenged to travel From the TahitiInfos website (translated)- On the issue of opening borders, the High Commissioner announced that they would only be possible by air transport at first. As of 1 st May, tourist movements will be possible again to the United States only. On the other hand, the health situation in metropolitan France does not allow the immediate resumption of travel to France, which remains impossible "until further notice". On the announcement of the new health protocol of entry into the territory applicable from 1 st May, President detailed a target device based on the medical condition of the travelers. For vaccinated travelers: A negative RT-PCR test three days before departure Proof of "complete vaccination schedule" A declaration of itinerary and contacts on the Etis platform An antigen test on arrival at Tahiti-Faa'a airport No quarantine A "possible" self-test at D + 4 (the President of the Country indicated that this possibility had not yet been decided) For travelers who have already contracted the Covid: A negative RT-PCR test three days before departure A serological test of less than a month proving the presence of antibodies A declaration of itinerary and contacts on the Etis platform An antigen test on arrival at Tahiti-Faa'a airport No quarantine A "possible" self-test at D + 4 (the President of the Country indicated that this possibility had not yet been decided) For unvaccinated travelers: A negative RT-PCR test three days before departure A declaration of itinerary and contacts on the Etis platform An antigen test on arrival at Tahiti-Faa'a airport A quarantine of 10 days Two self-tests on D + 4 and D + 8
