- Day 1
Arrive in Tahiti
Begin your adventure in Tahiti, the hub of French Polynesia.
Blending breathtaking scenery with a hive of activity, Tahiti is the perfect spot to begin your luxury yacht charter experience and find your footing in French Polynesia. Capital city Papetee is warm, welcoming, and abundant with opportunities to explore below the surface of the sapphire oceans. Ancient shipwrecks and coral reefs are alive with marine wildlife, so the chance to snorkel or scuba dive should be snapped up. From the bustling harbour, it’s not rare to see pods of dolphins dipping below a peachy-pink sunset.
- Day 2
Tahiti to MooreaDistance: 20 nm*
Travel west and see what makes Moorea a haven of wild beauty.
Complete with eight spectacular mountain peaks which includes a dormant volcano, Moorea is a sight to behold. To truly discern her charm, disembark and head inland to traverse tumbling waterfalls, glassy lagoons and hiking trails winding through the thriving jungles. There are plenty of places to dine on the island, and overwater bungalows sitting atop clearwater lagoons allow you to enjoy your meal whilst looking down at the local marine life swimming below.
- Day 3
Moorea to HuahineDistance: 80 nm*
Known as the ‘Garden Island’, this idyllic destination is home to lush jungles and smooth white-sand beaches.
Rich in watermelon groves and coconut fields, Huahine is an Eden of bright blooms and mouth-watering plantations.With much of its authentic Polynesian charm preserved, guests will find perfectly crystalline waters and vast expanses of untouched beaches to enjoy. Kayak down secluded streams and lagoons, or dive into the ocean and see shoals of kaleidoscopic fish up close. A sand bar near the island which only appears when the tide is out is easily accessible to you, thanks to the flexibility of a private yacht charter.
- Day 4
Huahine to RaiateaDistance: 40 nm*
An island bathed in history, this undisturbed oasis is a place of pilgrimage for many in the South Pacific.
With a name that translates to ‘faraway heaven’, this awe-inspiring island boasts a tranquil lagoon concealing an expansive coral garden just off the shore. Mountains bearing a halo of cloud look down over the sea, and religious temples and sacred statues are buried in their foothills. Head to northern tip of the island for a hands-on educational experience at a pearl farm and take home a Tahitian black pearl as a souvenir. Then, choose to dine on land and sample fresh fish and superb French fusion.
- Day 5
Raiatea to Taha’a Distance: 20 nm*
Sharing its translucent lagoon with neighbouring Raiatea, the so-called Vanilla Island is a gem worth exploring.
Step on to the powder-sand beaches of Taha’a and breathe in the heady aroma of vanilla that cloaks the island. Taha’a grows the majority of the vanilla orchids in French Polynesia, so the ingredient is common in everything from oils to baked goods and is well-worth getting your hands on while you’re there. The same coral reef that you can find in Raiatea extends to Taha’a, and shallower depths allow you to swim alongside the incredible creatures that flourish here.
- Day 6-7
Taha’a to Bora Bora Distance: 20 nm*
A postcard-perfect tropical paradise, Bora Bora is known as the jewel of French Polynesia for a good reason.
Become enamoured with the enchanting destination that is Bora Bora, the last stop on your charter. Ivory beaches stretch out invitingly and a large barrier reef bordering the island promises a memorable snorkelling experience. The island’s famous lagoon entices guests to step into the glassy, turquoise water and float in a perfect state of blissful relaxation. But for more action, you can head to a dedicated spot to feed sharks and sting rays. Helicopter rides are available over the magnificent island, and there are plenty of spots to enjoy fine dining.
