Violent and major crimes are very unusual on Moorea but petty theft can occur. Do not leave your snorkeling gear, bicycle, backpack, etc. unattended. Have someone stay with your gear when you go snorkeling at the public beach.
On Station grounds, don’t leave SCUBA gear, electronics, sunglasses, etc. unattended in plain view. It is advisable to lock rooms / bungalows. (Note that the dock and 3 meters from the water are public property in French Polynesia.)
Remember to lock up the kayaks, outdoor lockers, and the fuel shed near the dock after use.
Users are responsible for any guests and should remain with them while they are on Station property.
