Tahitia - Raiatea
Leeward islands are the west part of Archipel de la Société
They are high volcanic islands quite close to each other and surrounded by turquoise-blue lagoons. Bora Bora is definitely the most famous of them, on account of its magnificent lagoon.
However, the other islands are every bit as good as Bora Bora with their diversity, beauty and most of all their inhabitants whose friendliness is legendary..
Just picture yourself briefly swimming or wading in turquoise-blue waters on an early morning exploration of an uninhabited 'motu' you dropped anchor nearby the day before, while the crew is preparing a continental breakfast aboard your floating hotel.
Northern of Tahiti, Tuamotu archipelago
Faraway from the usual sailing cruises proposed to visitors, discover Tuamotu. This archipelago is only composed with atolls, last remnants of ancient volcanoes from which remains only the coral crown.
The different cruise program we propose will make you discover the following atolls: Fakarava, Toau, Apataki, Rangiroa et Tikehau.
During stops in the middle of a virgin landscape, you enjoy an unforgettable moment under starry sky.
Whatever the visited islands, you always meet these colours and lights illuminating Polynesia....
