Marquesas

Navigation

  • No depression, weather generally good, rainy season not very strong. Regular winds, influence by the islands’ mountains. Heavy swells. Inter islands navigation feasible in one day among the Northern islands and among the Southern islands.
  • Open and steep coasts. Weak W/NW sea currents (1 knot), reinforced in narrow passes (ie: Bordelais channel between Hiva oa and Tahuata).
  • Bays sheltered from the wind, but open to major swells. Wharfs and docks available. Muddy but stable bottoms.
  • Few markings: port entrance markers facing the main villages. Landing light (white fixed) on the North coast of Hiva Oa.
  • Tides
