Like the rest of the Tahitian Islands, Moorea’s weather is tropical and can be summed up in just two seasons: wet and dry. The capital city of Papeete reports an average yearly rain fall of 1800mm
The wet season generally runs between the months of November to April. During this time, you can expect very high humidity with brief and frequent storms. The wet season is also referred to as the “off season.” If you’re looking to do Tahiti on a budget, you’ll probably find better deals this time of year and you're likely to have a fair amount of sunshine
The dry season runs from May to October and you can expect less rain, although occasional nighttime downpours are not uncommon. This time of year is the “high season” and you should expect to encounter more tourists on your trip than in the off season. July is usually the most crowded time of the time. If you're going to Tahiti to scuba, the dry season is probably the best time to go because the visibility is better.
Although the year round temperatures remain tropical, trade winds are usually blowing, which will help keep you cool. For this reason, you may want to pack a light sweater or jacket, especially for the evening.
