THE BRANDO & MOOREA
Land at Papeete before a transfer to a private helicopter. You’ll chopper over the ocean spotted with exquisite islands until you arrive at The Brando on the private atoll of Tetiaroa.
A thatched roofed sanctuary set in stunning natural surroundings, a stay at The Brando offers everything from coral garden snorkeling amid rays, sea turtles, and a blizzard of bright fish, to skimming over the glassy water of the lagoon on a Polynesian outrigger canoe.
On Moorea, perhaps the most beautiful of the Polynesian islands, trek ancient pathways through tropical jungle in the shadow of its volcanic interior as you discover its marae religious sites amid the remains of early habitations. Your guide will share Polynesian legends as you explore deeper, acquiring wild fruits and coconuts for you to taste along the way.
You’ll enter the Hitiaa Lava Tubes, helped through the tunnels, rivers, and waterfalls by your guide, until you come to the top of Mount Aorai and spectacular bird’s eye views of Tahiti.
Through Pelorus you can exclusively join the Coral Gardeners on Moorea and assist in their pioneering coral reef conservation efforts. Learn about the destruction of the reef, explore the coral gardens while snorkeling, and assist in planting coral cuttings to revitalize degraded areas of the reef.
