Three Reasons to Charter a Sailboat in French Polynesia

1. Escapism

Fewer locations across the world can combine exceptional views without being overwhelmed with tourists. The hustle and bustle of life is forgotten in French Polynesia when you charter a sailboat in this heavenly corner of the Pacific. Whether it is the vivid blue sea that grabs your attention, or the intoxicating sights and sounds of the mountains nearby, there is always something to soak in and enjoy.

2. Captivating Wildlife

Although some islands may remain uninhabited by humans, there are still plenty of residents who call French Polynesia home. What better way than chartering a sailboat to get close and personal with an array of fish, sharks, turtles and more. Take advantage of the serenity of the sea and go diving among the wildlife around you. Dry off on the white sandy beaches and listen to the chatters of exotic birds that reside on the islands. Such a memorable and captivating experience is sure to put a smile on your face!

3. An Experience Only Sailing Can Offer

The beauty of French Polynesia is endless, and many parts of the region can only be visited via sailboat. This exclusive method of exploration enables you to fully immerse yourself into this tropical paradise. Chartering a sailboat here grants you access to famous diving locations like Tapu, but also lesser known yet equally impressive islands such as Maupiti. Sailing here provides opportunities to explore “off the beaten track” and become enveloped by the vibrant green and blue landscape.

When is the best time to charter a sailboat in French Polynesia?

Such a lavish location certainly leads to high season occurring in July and August. If you want to beat the crowds, try chartering your sailboat between September to November. Typically, it is recommended to visit French Polynesia between March and November. Most trade winds hail from a south-easterly direction and average 10-15 knots, with strengthening of these winds in July and August.

Water Wonders

French Polynesia boasts cascading waterfalls and tremendous diving opportunities at every corner. Nothing can beat the immense sight of gushing water cascading over a lush green cliff face. Once you have docked your sailboat, travel to Ma’raa Caves and Afareaitu Waterfalls to witness the effects of centuries of water erosion.

As you journey back to your sailboat, why not take a dip in the bright coral reefs and swim up close and personal with the sharks, manta rays and other captivating organisms found in French Polynesia. With snorkeling, surfing and paddle-boarding on offer here, there is an abundance of water-based activities in which you can participate.

Time for a Hike

You really are in for a treat if you want to wander inland from your sailboat as French Polynesia boasts an impressive array of hiking trails of which you can take full advantage. Stumble across ancient ceremonial sites on the Matairea Hill Trail or escape to a golden beach on the island if Hiva Oa to find some peace and tranquility. Each trail possesses a unique and exciting perspective of the famed group of islands, as no two trails are the same.

Island Cuisine

Drawing global inspiration yet retaining the unique island flavours, French Polynesian food is simply delectable. The popular island of Tahiti is home to Poisson Cru or Ia Ota - a flavourful infusion of fish, coconut milk and lime juice paired with freshly chopped vegetables. All the islands draw inspiration from their captivating environment with fish and fresh fruit and vegetables being a staple part of island diet. When you charter a sailboat in French Polynesia, the stunning assortment of food and drink available is sure to leave you satisfied.

Getting There

If you are travelling from Europe or the US, it is recommended to fly through LA as there are multiple direct flights occurring weekly. Arriving in Fa’a International Airport (or Tahiti International Airport as it is also known), you will then be able to continue to the bases in Raiatea, Bora Bora, Huahine and Rangiroa with a further 45-minute flight. Once you have reached your sailboat charter base and would like to travel around the island, there are bikes and buses available, as well as the option to rent your own car.
