Explore TAHITI AND THE SOCIETY ISLANDS

Beyond its paradise good looks and jasmine-scented breezes, Tahiti and The Society Islands offer pearl farms, ancient temples, coral conservation projects, and warm and welcoming locals ready to share their culture and history. And surrounding the sleek hull of your luxury yacht is one of the world’s finest diving and snorkeling destinations.

When to go:
MAY – SEPTEMBER

PAPE’ETE & MO’OREA

Arrive in Pape’ete, French Polynesia’s capital, where your yacht awaits. After you’ve settled in, trek into the volcanic interior with an expert local guide illuminating the history and culture of the islands.

Cruise to verdant Mo’orea. Hand-feed stingrays and reef sharks before slipping into the water for a swim and snorkel in their company. Discover the island’s dramatic contours on a 4×4 tour before visiting the Coral Gardeners who will tutor you about the island’s reefs and their own conservation programs. Take the opportunity to adopt and replant some coral in a judiciously chosen spot.

HUAHINE & PEARL FARMS

Cruise overnight to Huahine. Spend your morning uncovering this ‘Garden of Eden’ with a professional guide, looking into its temples and sanctuaries. Travel over the scintillating blue of its coastal waters by kayak or paddleboard before arriving at a Motu for a private beach picnic complete with live local music.

Spend the afternoon trying out traditional Polynesian games before feeding the sacred blue-eyed eels at Faei Village and snorkeling in the coral gardens. Returning by tender to your yacht, watch out for evidence of whales. If the conditions are right, you can snorkel with these gentle giants.

Following an open-air breakfast on board ringed by the azure blue of the Pacific, climb into a private seaplane for a morning flight over ravishing Raiatea island. In the afternoon there’s the option here to explore the lagoon’s many pearl farms.

TAHA’A & OUTRIGGER CANOE

Journey on to Taha’a, with its breezes scented by the vanilla orchid endemic to the island. Discover its verdant valleys and the wonderful natural world, or choose to remain in the water. Drift snorkel among the convict tang and myriad other vivid fish or dive outside of the reef.

Cruise to iconic Bora Bora for a chance to learn how to pilot and race an outrigger war canoe. There’s also an opportunity to set up a camp on a deserted atoll for fishing and foraging with guidance from local survival specialists.

As the pyrotechnics of another French Polynesian sunset fade into the dusk, relax beside an open fire and, accompanied by a local astronomer, study the extraordinary night sky. Take your canoe into the water for a hands-on lesson in celestial navigation before finishing the night camping on an atoll or navigating back to your vessel.
