# ) first one is :
For the Place named Rikitea in the Gambiers archipelagos where is optimal season from november
to end of march the rates are : Prices are established in XPF local currency attached to Euro , other currency are only indicative
and are fluctuating upon the Xrates market .
domectic flight Tahiti -PPT--> GMR = 70 000 xpf
= 70000 xpf = 586 Euros usually w 20 kgs luggage if passengers are from INTL flights arrival there are some Z class tickets
w 50 kgs luggage around 95000 xpf = 1015 usd
"G" guide fees are :
his domestic flight cost from PPT to GMR .
2) day fees : Guide fees per day : minimum 50 000 xpf for
1 person or 2 persons and 60 000 xpf for 3 spearos to be divided in between the number of persons .
xpf= 418 euros
all days there will be charge even if spearos wants to rest one day from the week
3) boat fee including captain / crew and gas = 60 000 xpf per day / 60000 xpf = 500 euros
Lodge fee : 12 000 xpf per night per person including breakfast / lunch sandwiches and soft drinks on the boat and dinner
with wine : 12000 xpf = 100 Euros
there are no ATM there for the moment , no bank as well
no change and better to come w cash in local money XPF or at least Euros .
there best would
be a maximum of 3 spearos but as there are 2 boats there and enough rooms , 6 could be also a possibility with a second guide
please note there are 1 flight per week on tuesday coming back on tuesday and 1 week every
2 weeks another flight on saturday both departures are early in the morning , requesting you to be at Air Tahiti domestic
desk around 06h30 AM to be sure to register yr luggage .
so a tuesday to tuesday could provide you a 6 days spearing
trip but i presume a longer stay in French Polynesia due to INTL connections .
