Yachting through the French Polynesia is an experience on its own; natural wonders unspoilt by man. Lush green tropical rainforests bathed by crystal clear warm turquoise seas and lagoons. Lounge aboard your yacht as you cruise from Tahiti to Bora Bora, exploring one paradisiac island to another dotted with stunning reefs and deserted islands.
Below is a sample 7-day yachting itinerary in Tahiti. Enjoy.
Board your yacht in Pape’ete, and begin cruising the southern coast of Tahiti towards La Plage de Maui. Once you arrive, take your tender or swim ashore to explore this pearly white sand beach bathed by crystal clear, warm waters. Kayak in the neighbouring lagoon and enjoy the endless sun.
Continue your charter as you sail towards the picturesque island of Mo’orea. Drop anchor in one of the two stunning twin bays, Ōpūnohu Bay or Cook’s Bay and spend the day snorkelling in the warm blue-green transparent sea, or step ashore to hike through the rainforest and up the slopes of Mount Tohivea for panoramic views of the island’s peaks and Tahiti.
Wake up to breakfast onboard as you cruise the beautiful South Pacific Ocean with its crystal clear waters towards Huahine, once the home of Tahitian royalty. Tender ashore to visit its ancient temples, pearl farms and tropical lagoons. Take the afternoon to go horseback riding on the beach, or walk on water as you cross the sandbar that connects the islands at low tide.
Continue your cruise due north inside the island’s reef and drop anchor at Ha’amane Bay, an enclosed inlet. Spend the morning floating and swimming amid the vibrantly colored fish before stepping ashore to visit the renowned pacific black pearl farms and the world-famous vanilla plantations.
Begin sailing towards Bora Bora, through the translucent lagoon formed between the Taha’a and its surrounding reef. Stop at Vahine Island, the smallest luxury resort in French Polynesia to enjoy the warm, clear water as you snorkel around the island - one of the best snorkelling site in the world. Dine onboard as you continue your cruise through the Te Ava Nui Pass to Bora Bora.
Welcome to Bora Bora - an island that is as close as it gets to a tropical paradise. Spend the day relaxing and enjoying the beautiful surroundings as you kayak amongst the local rays and dolphins or simply lounge in your yacht’s jacuzzi. Have your chef prepare you a picnic lunch on your own deserted island, and later tender ashore to enjoy a cocktail at the famous Bora Bora Hotel.
Drop anchor in the second largest of the Society Islands. Explore Raiatea's lush jungle interior as you kayak up the Fa’aroa Bay or hike up Mount Tapioi for stunning views of the entire island. Have your chef prepare you and your guests a meal aboard your yacht as you enjoy paradise completely unplugging from the rest of the world before disembarking from your week long charter.
