Step onboard to a warm welcome from your Captain and crew anchored in Bora Bora’s lagoon and take a tour of your luxury sanctuary for the next 8 days. Bora Bora is undoubtedly the most celebrated island in the South Pacific, famed for its palm-blanketed motu circling illuminated lagoons, stilted villas suspended above sapphire seas and the tropical slopes of Mount Otemanu which blossom with hibiscus.
Experience a full spa treatment at a resort entirely dedicated to calming rituals and well-being, stimulating the mind with a dose of barefoot bliss and rejuvenation following your travels.
Wake early to whiffs of French crepes for a delightful breakfast on the aft-deck in the middle of the lagoon. Popular excursions here include snorkelling, diving, fishing and making the most of the incredible array of water toys onboard; be it paddleboarding, kitesurfing, jet-skis or seabobs - to name a few.
Wake up in Taha'a; the land of the Tahitian vanilla orchid, where sumptuous scents pervade the island’s air - and enjoy your first morning dip having secured and exclusive anchorage the evening before.
Sheltered by a shallow coral garden between Motu Maharare and Motu Tautau, you can enjoy a refreshing morning dip in azure waters where tropical-coloured fish animate coral gardens and giant manta rays leisurely glide past.
Feast on a long lunch onboard before breaking out from barefoot bliss, and instead embarking on an adventurous hike through stunning scenery teeming with wildlife. Scale slopes and deep valleys while discovering the diverse flora and fauna along the way. Settle down for a delicious dinner to recount the day’s adventures around the table as you make the short cruise to Raiatea.
Enclosed just like Taha’a by a coral reef, Raiatea is yet another paradisiacal pocket in French Polynesia.
Tender across the warm lagoon waters to visit the many pearl farms and lay eyes upon the world-renowned iridescent lustre of Mother Nature's most perfect gem. Commonly known as Black Pearls, the Tahitian Cultured Pearl vary from the darkest black to shimmering shades of green, blue, bronze, aubergine, or even pink.
After an afternoon of on land exploring, watch an evening performance from the colourfully dressed local dancers before returning to the yacht and indulging in a freshly caught fish dinner on the foredeck as you swing at anchor.
Wake in Huahine to awe-inspiring views, for yet another delicious breakfast spread of fresh fruit and pancakes prepared by your chef. Mid-morning, step back in time and invigorate the senses with a trip ashore. Not only is Huahine blanked by tropical rainforest abuzz with jungle sounds, it is also a culturally preserved sanctuary peppered by sacred temples waiting to be explored.
Early afternoon, settle down for a dose of traditional Tahiti: a Motu Picnic on a private beach. If it takes your fancy, this afternoon's activities involves exploring the ancient Marae archeological site before feeding the sacred blue-eyed eels of Faie Village.
For some high-octane adventure, take in the beauty of the coastline from a unique and thrilling perspective via jet-ski. For the surfers amongst you, ride the legendary waves of Huahine at Ava Mo’a Pass whilst the sun dips below the horizon. This is a great chance to burn any pent up energy before you embark on the 70 nautical miles overnight cruise to Moorea in the south-east.
After a 7-hour cruise through the night, you will awaken to one of the most scenically striking islands in French Polynesia; Moorea. Known to be the eden island retreat of the yachting world, Moorea is as welcoming and warm as the local Tahitians lucky enough to call it home.
Let the tender transfer you towards a much-anticipated experience: swim and hand feed friendly sharks and stingrays for special moments which will no doubt become engrained memories. In the afternoon, tender ashore and embark on an epic adventure via Four Wheel Drive to explore the island.
August to October is high season for whale watching in French Polynesia, so if the time is right, your knowlegable crew will take you to witness these majestic beings. Most of our guides are qualified operators for whale watching in Tahiti, which requires a licence.
Weigh anchor and explore the other side of Moorea this morning before embarking on your final cruise to Papeete. Scientists consider the Polynesian Sea zone to be the "richest aquarium on earth” and Moorea; the place to experience it in all its glory.
Enjoy a final celebratory dinner onboard whilst swinging at anchor, reflecting on this week's extraordinary experiences. Rise early for one final breakfast on the aft-deck before saying your goodbyes to the Captain and crew, returning home with unforgettable memories.
