Dynamting Port of Papeete?

I saw in an August posting that dynamiting of the port is going to start in November. We are going to be in Papeete/Moorea Nov 18-21 and Nov 30-Dec 2. I am concerned the construction will eliminate almost all water related activities for Papeete and Moorea.

What's the latest project schedule and how do we check status?

Thanks!

I doubt very much if the work in any way would eliminate the ferrys

to run between the two islands. Aita e peapea

I'm actually thinking more of the water quality for snorkeling/diving and fish life in general. Dolphins/whale watching will probably be affected too.

It there somewhere to check on line for whether/when that is going forward?

The dynamiting at the port of Papeete in no way will affect the water

related activities. Look at the map of the port at

www.//water.tahiti-ocean.com/port.html

All they are doing is making the enterance to the port wider.

Again I say to you "aita e peapea"

They don't snorkle or watch whales or dolphins near the port.

Moorea is 1/2 hour by boat or ferry from where the construction is going to take place.

Go and have a great time in Paradise!
