Cruising and Sailing in Tahiti

Boasting some of the world’s most incredible lagoons, getting on the water in the Islands of Tahiti often features high on the agenda for most visitors to this magnificent destination.  Why not make this more than a day trip and spend part of your holiday to Tahiti on-board a private yacht or a cruise ship for a journey to remember?  Top and tail your sailing experience with a few nights in an overwater bungalow at one of our favourite hideaways for a complete Tahitian experience!  Here’s our guide to the best cruising and sailing in Tahiti – from the sublime to the adventurous.

Tahiti Yacht Charter – Private Catamaran

Jump aboard a crewed yacht for a few days memorable sailing with Tahiti Yacht Charter. The encircling barrier reefs are home to sea turtles, dolphins, colourful hard and soft coral and a kaleidoscope of tropical fish. You will see the islands from a completely different perspective and what’s more, 3 or 4 days is all you need! Either spend a few days exploring Taha’a’s beautiful lagoon or sail to Bora Bora and disembark at the pontoon of your chosen island refuge – how’s that for arriving in style?!  Click here for more details.

Paul Gauguin – Small luxury cruising

Discover the enchanting islands of Tahiti from a unique perspective on board the luxurious m/s Paul Gauguin. Purpose-built to sail the region’s shallow waters, she visits small ports inaccessible by larger ships unveiling a hidden beauty missed by many. Elegant yet relaxed, life on board reflects the laidback luxury of the islands you’ll visit. There’s no packing and unpacking, no early starts or waiting at airports… and with 217 crew members tending to just 332 passengers, service levels are second to none.  Click here for more details.

Aranui – Voyage of discovery

Known as the ‘Freighter to Paradise’, the Aranui – meaning ‘Great Highway’ – is one of the most unique and unforgettable journeys in the world. A cruise unlike any other, this cargo vessel carries supplies – and a limited number of passengers – to the remote, wild and mystical Marquesas Islands. The 14 day voyage begins and ends in Papeete, travels via the low-lying Tuamotu Islands and explores the far-flung Marquesas. These enchanting islands are so remote that the Aranui is their lifeline to the outside world and the ship visits all six inhabited islands in the archipelago, delivering supplies and picking up copra (dried coconut) and noni fruit. Such is her value and importance in this part of the world, the Aranui is affectionately known as the seventh island!  Click here for more details.
