Cruise in Raïatea

Your cruise in Raïatea

Raiatea is one of the Leeward Islands of French Polynesia located about 210 kilometers far from Tahiti. The name Raiatea means 'bright sky'. Contrary to other islands of the archipelago, Raiatea is not overcrowded by tourists. Moore your boat to a dock in the main port of Raiatea- Uturoa and see the forest-covered mountains overlooking Uturoa harbour. Raiatea is known as the island of vanilla, pinapple and coconut- get off board for a glass of pinacolada. Take a break in Utuora which offers beautiful beaches as well as parks and performances of traditional dance. Then set your sail and head for the adjacent Tahaa, sharing the same lagoon with Raiatea and enjoy the best of Polynesia.

Alquilamos un catamarán Catana 47 del año 2011 en Raiatea, Polinesia Francesa. El barco excelente, muy cómodo. No funcionaba el desalinizador (water maker) y el aire acondicionado no funcionaba demasiado bien. Fuimos muy bien atendidos, las islas que visitamos en 10 días (Raiatea, Taha, Bora Bora y Huahine) espectaculares!!!

Firstly, very helpful staff, particularly Hina who completed boat & chart review. Also drove us into town for us to provision & made arangements for a ride back to the base. Also drove us to the airport when charter was complete. The base has very nice washrooms & showers. Met the owner at their resort on Huahine. She was so friendly & accomodating with WIFI, use of the resorts beach, kayaks, lounge chairs. We had a delicious dinner at the resort. Our boat, a Mahe 36 was new (2014)& very clean & well equipped. The only issue was that the chartplotter was at the nav station, not at the helm. That took a little getting used to, but in the end it worked out fine. The charter fee also included 2 kayaks or if we had preferred a kayak & a paddle board. They also ensured that we had a power inverter. It was so nice to have these items included as opposed to having to pay extra. From start to finish we were well taken care of.
