Private Islands to Polynesian Crafting: Something For Every Family Member on This Islands Of Tahiti Cruise
From touring the cultural riches on the big island of Tahiti, to marveling at the world-renowned lagoon waters surrounding Bora Bora, or dolphin-watching on Moorea, this is a journey the whole clan will cherish for years to come.
This dream vacation will take you to a trio of some of the most-beloved islands in the world. You’ll visit the palm-fringed shores of Tahiti, Moorea, and Bora Bora, with recommendations for pampering and luxuriating all along the way. Perhaps you’d like a parasail built for two to glide over the blue lagoons of Bora Bora, or maybe you’d rather a solar-powered luxury catamaran to cruise around on the crystalline waters? Read on for more next-level experiences.
Use this 10-day itinerary to navigate among awe-inspiring activities and outings spread across four fascinating islands. You’ll have your choice of activities, from surfari excursions on the big island of Tahiti and transparent kayaking on what’s thought of as its “little sister” Moorea, to sailing and snorkeling excursions on two spectacular islands protected by the same barrier reef, Raiatea and Tahaa.
A short flight away from each other, among the islands Rangiroa and Tikehau, are what are widely considered the best diving spots in the world, home to multitudes of sublime locations fit for dive enthusiasts and novices alike. This itinerary takes advantage of these sites being all within close proximity to one another. It’s full of plenty of opportunities for a rewarding solo sojourn, or to bond with friends (old and new) and family on dive outings that will awe everyone with the vastness of aquatic life in these pure blue waters. Get ready to greet stingrays, manta rays, grey reef sharks, sea turtles, and so much more—a week’s worth of fascinating underwater discoveries await on this ultimate dive trip.

Surrounded by the crystalline waters of fabulous blue lagoons and lush landscapes with volcanic mountains rising up out of the sea, it’s also home to rich Polynesian history and delicious cuisine.
