Polynesia


DAY 1 : Papeete (Tahiti)
You will step aboard the boat at 3 pm. The crew will greet you with a welcome drink. Before setting sail, you will be given a quick briefing on the safety instructions to follow during the cruise. The boat will then head for Moorea. You will arrive at your destination in the late evening. Overnight will be spent at anchor.

DAY 2 : Moorea
In the morning, you'll discover Moorea, also known as "Tahiti's sister island". It's easily recognisable by its 8 peaks overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Its beautiful lagoon is populated by a variety of fish, molluscs, crustaceans and more, to the delight of snorkelers. You'll take a guided 3.5-hour tour of the island, during which you'll learn more about Moorea's rich history, culture and ecology. After crossing the Opunohu Valley, climbing the slopes of Mount Tohi'e'a and passing through the sublime Cook and Opunohu bays, you'll stop off at the Moorea Juice Factory. You can sample the juices made from local produce. Depart for Raiatea in the evening. Overnight will be spent at sea.

DAY 3 : Raiatea
You will reach Raiatea, Polynesia's first inhabited island. It is home to the archipelago's oldest marae, Taputapuatea, a UNESCO World Heritage site. It is considered the cradle of Polynesian civilization. In fact, it still serves as a meeting place for communities from Hawaii, New Zealand and the Cook Islands. Overnight is spent in the port or at anchor.

DAY 4 : Taha’a
You drop anchor in Taha'a in the morning. It lies to the north of the island of Raiatea, with which it shares a stunning lagoon. Once ashore, you'll smell the sweet scent of vanilla, for which this island has been famous for decades. Vanilla plantations here are artisanal, with farmers "marrying" the vanilla by hand. Departure for Bora Bora in the evening. Overnight will be spent at sea.

DAY 5 : Bora Bora
You will arrive in Bora-Bora early in the morning. This island, nicknamed the "Pearl of the Pacific", is considered by many to be one of the most beautiful in the world. Its lagoon, dominated by Mount Otemanu (727 meters), is home to extraordinary underwater biodiversity. You'll discover the essence of Bora Bora for a 2.5-hour journey on" The Truck ", a truck decked out in local colours, which will take you through magnificent landscapes, past coconut groves and picturesque villages. Overnight will be spent in the port.

DAY 6 : Bora Bora
You'll spend a second day in Bora Bora. You have free time to explore the island at your leisure. Perhaps you'll take a 2-3 hour hike up Mount Otemanu for a panoramic view of the turquoise lagoon, or opt for a day of snorkeling. Depart for Huahine in the evening.

Day 7 : Huahine
Welcome to Huahine, one of the archipelago's most authentic islands. Its inhabitants have preserved their culture and traditions over the centuries. Huahine is home to ancient marae (sacred temples built of volcanic stone), some dating back over 700 years. Overnight will be spent at sea.

DAY 8 : Papeete (Tahiti)
You arrive in Tahiti early in the day. Your disembarkation in Papeete is scheduled after breakfast, around 9 am.

    Paradies Südsee

    Ich war rundherum sehr zufrieden! Angefangen vom Service bis hin zur Freundlichkeit der Crew. Wir hatten Glück, das Schiff war nicht voll besetzt. Dadurch hatten wir eine sehr familiäre Atmosphäre mit Passagieren und der Crew und unser Guid hatte Zeit uns intensive zu beraten/betreuen. Um diesen exzellenten Status zu behalten, sollte die Panorama II nicht voll besetzt auf Törns gehen.

Frequently asked questions

  • What documents are required for a trip to Polynesia?

    For French nationals and for a stay of less than 3 months, all you need is a valid passport, valid for another 6 months after the return date. Please note: in case of a stopover in the United States, it is necessary to check that the passport meets American standards. If you are transiting through or to the United States, you must present an electronic travel authorisation, the ESTA (approximately 14 USD per person). Please note that you must provide the same information as on your passport and travel documents.
    This information is subject to change by the authorities of the country visited. It is not unusual for border crossing rules to change. We therefore strongly advise you to refer to the "advice to travellers" section of the France Diplomatie website: https://www.diplomatie.gouv.fr/fr/conseils-aux-voyageurs/
    Nationals of other countries should contact the consulate of their country of origin for information on formalities.
  • Is everyone on board English-speaking?
