Arrive Papeete, Tahiti. VIP greetings with flowers. Guests to be taken
to Marina Taina. Afternoon visit to the Robert Wan museum.
Early morning steam to Moorea (15 miles). Moorea is Polynesia's
second-most popular tourist attraction after Tahiti. Located a mere 12
miles (19 kilometers) west of the island of Tahiti, Moorea is a
triangular shaped island encircled by a lagoon of translucent green,
fringed by an azure blue Polynesian sea. Covering an area of 51 square
miles, it is the only other major island in the Windward group of the
Society Islands besides Tahiti. Enjoy water sports, visit to the Marae
and Belvedere. Depart for evening trip to Huahine (90 miles).
Wake up Huahine and enjoy water activities and land excursions on 4x4
all terrain vehicles into the mountains. Huahine is, arguably, the most
picturesque island in all of French Polynesia. With steep mountains
descending into protected bays of azure blue and emerald green colors,
the island is also one of the more geographically diverse of the Society
Group. Also known as "The Garden Island" due to its abundance of lush
green tropical foliage and wild jungle-like scenery, Huahine is one of
the more interesting of the Society Islands to explore. There's also an
abundance of long and beautiful white sandy beaches on Huahine... and
the good news is that on this island, most of them are easily accessable
for total quality beach and sun worshipping. Night voyage to Taha'a.
Taha'a produces 70-80% of all French Polynesia's vanilla. Because of the
pervasive aroma of vanilla, Taha'a is known as the "Vanilla Island".
Enjoy visiting the vanilla farms. You can also visit the famous Taha'a
Island Resort Relais Chateaux. Tahaa's pearls are of also of exceptional
quality so take advantage of the black pearl farms too.
Early morning sail to Raiata. Far less traveled than Bora Bora, Tahiti,
or Moorea, these two fascinating islands offer the vacationer the
experience of a true unspoiled French Polynesia.Visit the Marae of
Taputapuatea, the oldest Marae of the Mahoi culture.
DAYS 6 and 7
Bora Bora island is possibly the single most famous island in all the
world. The legends, mysteries, and romance associated with the words
"Bora Bora" bring an almost mystical presence to the island. Spend two
days in Bora Bora. Explore the history of World War II where the US
military chose Bora Bora as a military South Pacific base. This island
is predestined for snorkeling and scuba diving in and around its
beautiful lagoon. Many species of sharks and rays inhabit the
surrounding body of water. There are a few dive operators on the island
offering manta ray dives and also shark-feeding dives.
Fly back to Tahiti for international departures.
