DH and I are just beginning to plan a 2 week trip to the South Pacific next summer. We are leaning towards spending a week on Bora Bora and a week on Morrea, but are also curious about Cook Islands and Fiji. We prefer exploring one place in some depth to changing hotels every couple of nights and so don't want to stay in more than 3 places maximum (perhaps excluding arrival and departure nights near airports). We are interested in snorkeling, hiking, diving (DH only), culture and time to do nothing being surrounded by beauty. We will be on a moderate budget, but if possible would like one bungalow over the water experience.

Is it true that May to October tends to have the mildest weather? We have also heard that there is a small cruise ship that tours the islands and is quite wonderful.

Any input at this point would be welcome
