I would like to organize an itinerary which would include the Society islands, the Tuamotus and the Marquesas too (1 or more islands of each). Do you have any ideas? &How much will the transportation cost from one island to another?

Hi Sally

I think Air Tahiti is your best bet.

I think the only other option in that part of the world is cargo ships, and that doesn't fit your timeframe at all.

10 day's might be a bit short, transportation is very often not running on a daily shedule on these islands (a long time ago i went from Tahiti to Raiatea and Bora Bora).
If you have a bit more time and don't mind the costs (but nothing is cheap there) the Aranui (https://aranui.com) might be a good option. Otherwise as above by plane

Apart from Moorea which has a regular ferry service you will have to fly, in which case I would recommend concentrating on one or two archipelagos that way you can take advantage of Air Tahiti's flight passes and add-ons, because individual flights in French Polynesia are expensive and those passes are a real money saver. You should also be aware that some islands don't have flights every day so you will have to take that into account with your scheduling.
