Tahiti Yacht Charter Itinerary
Explore the beautiful islands of South Pacific on your luxury Tahiti yacht charter. This is just a sample itinerary to give you an idea of what you can see and do on a week long charter. Once you select a boat, your captain will prepare a custom-made itinerary just for you and your guests.
Days 1 & 2: Moorea
From Tahiti, cruise to the island of Moorea – a distance of 15 miles (approximately 1.5 hours of cruising). During the day, tour the island by four-wheel drive vehicle or motor scooter, swim with manta rays, and enjoy good diving on the outer reef pass. The oceans around Moorea offer some of the best diving in the world. Just as the islands feature mountains, cliffs, and valleys, the sea bottom offer canyons, chasms, and promontories. Anchor overnight at Moorea.
The next morning, move to a different anchorage on the island and spend the day snorkeling, fishing and on the beach. Depart the second night after dinner for the island of Huahine, a distance of 90 miles (about 9 hours).
Days 3 & 4: Huahine
Arrive at Huahine early in the morning. There are numerous excellent anchorages on this island, and lots of activities including deep sea fishing, diving, hiking, horseback riding and cycling. Circle the island by tender with a picnic lunch; visit the small local village for shopping. Two days are recommended to enjoy the natural beauty of Huahine.
Huahine is an escape into a modern day Garden of Eden. This verdant tropical jungle features abundant coconut plantations, vanilla orchids, banana groves, fields of watermelon, and flowering breadfruit trees.
Huahine is also home to the largest concentration of ancient temples (or marae) which may date back to the earliest inhabitants around 700 AD. Just outside of Maeve Village, you can see the largest stone temple along with hundreds of excavated structures.
Day 5: Tahaa
Sail to the island of Raiatea and Tahaa, a distance of 25 miles (approximately 2.5 hours). Tahaa is also called the Vanilla Island, and as your yacht approaches this small island, you’ll understand why. The pleasant smell of vanilla fills the air as local farmers grow more than 70% of all vanilla produced in Tahiti.
Tahaa offers a relaxing atmosphere and simple vacation escape. The island is surrounded by “motu,” or very small islands. You will love exploring the landscape and villages. Cruise into peaceful bays, enjoy a picnic lunch on a sandy motu, or hike along ancient footpaths to the Temehani Plateau or to Mount Temehani.
Anchor overnight at Tahaa.
Days 6 & 7: Bora Bora
Depart mid-afternoon for the island of Bora Bora, a distance of 20 miles (about 2 hours). Arrive in the late afternoon and anchor for the evening. The next explore the island by land, visit the highest point on the island to view the lagoon and its amazing colors. In the evening, explore the inside of the reef by tender and watch the shark feeding. Depart on an evening flight to Tahiti.
