Dreams of Tahiti itinerary

Dreams of Tahiti itinerary

Day 1 – Papeete Tahiti
Relax on sunny beaches, sample Tahitian fare, and take in the effervescent spirit of the city. But whatever you do, save time — and luggage space — for shopping. Black pearls and colorful crafts fill the market and local treasures are so plentiful you’ll have trouble making your choices

Day 2 – Moorea
Welcome to paradise, where your stunning surroundings soak up superlatives and call for more. In our overnight stay here you’ll have plenty of time to do it all. Be sure to consider the opportunity to hone your photography talents on an optional tour of the island in the company of a professional photographer. Your choices here are endless. Hike the majestic Three Coconut Trail. Visit dolphins in their native habitat. Or spend your time swimming, snorkeling, and kayaking from Wind Spirit’s Watersports Platform as we lay at anchor in these beautiful sapphire seas.

Day 3 – Tahaa
You have just arrived in a wonderland for snorkeling and diving. A true highlight is drift snorkeling among the spectacular coral gardens, a phenomenon unique to Polynesia and perfected in this place. When you come out of the water and breathe in the fragrant air, you’ll remember that this is called the Vanilla Island

Day 4 – Raiatea
This magical island will capture you, just as it’s captured those who have come to its shores for over 1,000 years. After our leisurely overnight at anchor here, you’ll wonder how anyone ever mustered the will to leave. Once again, snorkeling is divine, whether you choose to explore the coral reef or simply splash into the aquamarine heaven from the Watersports Platform. Or just stretch out and relax in the sun — this is life in paradise.

Day 5 – Bora Bora
Your stay here allows plenty of time to capture the beauty in photographs — and you’ll want plenty. These stunning waters will show a different kaleidoscope of blue in each frame. You’ll have lots of options for exploration, whether you prefer the access provided by a 4-by-4, or the thrill of riding in the open air. Stretch out on stunning white-sand beaches, dive and swim in brightly colored seas, or sail among the tiny islands and lagoons. This is the stuff that dreams are made of.

Day 6 – Huahine
Anchor here in the place whose nickname is “Garden of Eden.” Take your time to explore the lush forests, the tropical landscapes, and the quaint villages to discover one of Polynesia’s best kept secrets. Here, at a slower pace, see a glimpse of the authentic South Pacific island lifestyle.

Day 7 – Papeete Tahiti
Relax on sunny beaches, sample Tahitian fare, and take in the effervescent spirit of the city. But whatever you do, save time — and luggage space — for shopping. Black pearls and colorful crafts fill the market and local treasures are so plentiful you’ll have trouble making your choices

The flight is non stop from Los Angeles and then spending two nights at the Intercontinental Papeete (which looks incredible – can you see the overwater bungalows !)
