Time Difference

Because it is spread out across a large stretch of the Pacific Ocean, French Polynesia has three time zones:

  • Tahiti and the Society Islands, Tuamotu and the Austral and Bass Islands are on Hawaii Time (GMT-10)
  • the Marquesas Islands have their own special time zone (GMT-9:30)
  • the Gambier Islands are on Alaska Time (GMT-9)

French Polynesia does not observe Daylight Saving Time.
