Papeete

Tahiti

8 days / 7 nights - Wind Spirit Ship

A graceful sailing yacht is the perfect way to experience the true wonder of Tahiti. We’ll let the trade winds fill our sails as we visit one legendary island after another, staying overnight in most to give you time to swim and snorkel in crystal-clear lagoons, meander through lush rainforests, and experience the fascinating Polynesian culture from tikis to tiare flowers. Live your Polynesian dream as you sail through azure waters to islands and atolls that define the word “paradise.”

Day 1 – Papeete, Tahiti – French Polynesia
Legendary seductress of sailors and capital of French Polynesia. From Papeete Harbor you can feast your eyes on Moorea, in the running for most beautiful island in the world.

Day 2 – Moorea, French Polynesia
The island’s 12,000 residents are keenly aware they have an image to uphold, so they buried all the unsightly power cables to give you seamless views of paradise. Miles of coconut-colored beaches and that postcard-perfect lagoon make this the place for watersports of all kinds.

Day 3 – Tahaa, French Polynesia
Located just across the lagoon from Raiatea, this is one of the most traditional islands. Its few thousand residents live a tranquil life fishing, raising livestock, and growing crops from the sought-after vanilla bean to watermelon and copra.

Day 4 – Raiatea, French Polynesia
Raiatea, “The Sacred Island,” is located just across the lagoon from Taha’a and shares the same barrier reef. It used to be the center of religion and culture in the Society Islands. Uturoa, the main town, reminds some people of Papeete in its younger days with its quaint low-rise buildings. Raiatea is also home to the only navigable river in the islands, the Fa’aroa.

Day 5 – 6 – Bora Bora, French Polynesia
Half island, half atoll, Bora Bora has one of the most extraordinary lagoons in the world. The varying depths paint the water every shade of sapphire, topaz, and aquamarine, while the volcanic mass of Mount Otemanu stands guard in a uniform of jade and malachite.

Day 7 – Huahine, French Polynesia
Huahine is actually two islands separated by sparkling Maroe Bay and joined by a bridge. Islanders on “The Garden Island” grow a cornucopia of tropical produce—cantaloupe, vanilla, banana, breadfruit, taro, papaya, watermelon, taro, coffee, coconut.

Day 8 – Papeete, French Polynesia
Legendary seductress of sailors and capital of French Polynesia. From Papeete Harbor you can feast your eyes on Moorea, in the running for most beautiful island in the world.
