French Polynesia enjoys tropical, warm and humid weather all year round. A warm rainy season lasts from November to April, and a relatively cool dry season from May to October. The rest of the year rain is rare and temperatures constantly high, tempered sometimes by refreshing breezes. Except in the Marquesas and the northern Tuamotus, rainfall is abundant, falling in violent showers. The water temperature ranges from 79°F to 84°F (26°C to 29°C) making for extremely pleasant yacht charter holidays.
