Re: Need advice on preparing for Pacific crossing

Yep, planning to dive Rangiroa and Fakaarava. Carquesas will be very good too and entirely different to the Tuamotus as there are no barrier reefs around the Island.

I would love to hear from anyone who has dived in the Marquesas regarding dive sites. My partner and I want to do as many dives as possible from a 10ft inflatable.

Thanks for the provisioning advice everyone....I don't plan on making any big changes to my diet. I've been living out for a back pack for most of the last 5 years and have a pretty good idea about food.

I was hoping for advice that relates sepcifically to pacific crossing. Anchorage information in the Marquesas, Tuamotus, Societies, Samoa, Fiji. Special requirements?

Points of interest in these places?

Any special advice or equipment suggestions that we may have not thought about?
