Day 1: Papeete, Tahiti | Embark

Your adventure of a lifetime begins at the charming Papeete port, located in the Society Islands. Boarding the luxurious M/Y Panorama II at 3 pm, you are greeted with warm hospitality, a refreshing drink, and a delicious Welcome Dinner that sets the tone for the journey ahead. As the sun sets, the ship bids farewell to Papeete and sets sail for the enchanting island of Moorea.

Day 2: Moorea

While anchored in Moorea, enjoy swimming, snorkeling, and watersports in the sapphire waters. A tasty lunch will provide energy for your afternoon's island exploration.

Your cruise fare includes an enchanting 3.5-hour island tour, during which a knowledgeable guide will share captivating stories of Moorea's rich history, vibrant culture, and diverse ecology. During the tour, visit the lush Opunohu Valley, ascend the slopes of Mt. Tohi'e'a, and pass by the picturesque Cook's and Opunohu Bays. The tour also includes a stop at the Moorea Fruit Juice Factory, where you can taste refreshing juices and liqueurs made from locally sourced fruits like star fruit, ginger, papaya, mango, coconut, and pineapple.

After the tour, you have free time to explore Moorea alone before departing for Raiatea island after dinner.

Day 3: Raiatea

Early in the morning, sail across the lagoon to reach nearby Raiatea, which translates to “faraway heaven” and “sky with soft light.” Originally known as Havai’i, Raiatea is considered the homeland of the ancient Polynesians. You can have a variety of optional activities to choose from, such as Faaroa River and Motu beach break, or visit the Anapa family Pearl farm*. Overnight in port. (docked or on anchor at times)

Day 4: Taha'a

Noon arrival in Taha'a, which shares a magnificent lagoon with Raiatea Island. As you lay at anchor in Taha'a, enjoy swimming, snorkeling, and watersports from the swimming platform in her beautiful sapphire waters! The fertile island is covered with banana, watermelon, and coconut groves. The island is a vast natural greenhouse for the treasured Tahitian vanilla orchid. Optional visit to the island with a vanilla plantation and a rum distillery while enjoying snorkeling. Or take a 4X4 safari tour around. Late-night departure to Bora Bora. Overnight at sea.

Day 5: Bora Bora

Without a doubt, Bora Bora reigns supreme as the crown jewel of the South Pacific, holding the spotlight as French Polynesia's undisputed star. Today, experience the essence of Bora Bora with a unique excursion aboard Le Truck, a vibrant journey lasting approximately 2.5 hours (included in the cruise fares).

Climb aboard this colorful chariot as it guides you through Bora Bora's landscapes, passing coconut groves and quaint villages along the shoreline. Immerse yourself in the rich tapestry of Tahitian history, traditions, and cultures as your knowledgeable guide narrates the 22-mile road encircling this legendary island. Explore the villages of Farepiti, Faanui, and Anau, each adorned with ancient "Marae" shrouded in mystery. As your adventure unfolds, be captivated by the breathtaking vistas from Matira Point, which offers unparalleled panoramas of paradise overnight in port.

Day 6: Bora Bora

One mere day in Bora Bora doesn't suffice! Whether you explore at your own pace or join on one of the meticulously crafted optional Shore Excursions, seize the opportunity to create memories that will last a lifetime—late-night departure to Huahine.

Day 7: Huahine

Huahine, once home to Tahitian royalty, is considered the cradle of Polynesian culture. The two islands maintain the largest concentration of ancient marae (temples) in French Polynesia, some of which are believed to date back to around 700 AD. Huahine is a colossal tropical jungle burgeoning with coconut plantations, vanilla orchids, banana groves, breadfruit trees, and watermelon fields. Your optional half-day tour takes you around the island to visit the small villages of Maeva, an archaeological site, and a vanilla plantation, or visit a private motu for a picnic and snorkeling experience. Departure after lunch to Papeete. Overnight at sea.

Day 8: Papeete, Tahiti | Disembark

  • 1 Breakfast
As the morning sun graces Papeete Port, you find yourself at the end of your voyage. The team invites you to join on a final breakfast on board at 9 AM before disembarkation.

Kate was great to work with in the planning stage. She was prompt, helpful, and efficient. Our tour guide, Edwin, was knowledgeable and passionate. We were very happy to have traveled with Adventure Life, it made the trip easy and a true pleasure. We could concentrate on enjoying the experience rather than the details of travel.
