French Polynesia Flotilla (Tahiti)

February 11-February 25, 2023

Here at last is paradise on earth. Visitors who fly into the islands and stay at hotels can experience only a part of the magic of these islands. It is only in sailing between the blue ocean and turquoise lagoons in the shadow of the majestic volcanic peaks as the ancient Polynesians did in their outrigger canoes, that one realizes the full majesty of Tahiti. 

The four major islands have ancient volcanic centers which rise from lovely calm lagoons ringed by outlying reefs. Passes in the reefs allow safe access in and out of the smooth sailing lagoons to blue water sailing in the trade winds. Steady trade winds provide fast reaches of about 5 hours between the islands.

Good anchorages are abundant among the central islands as well as on the motus, lushly vegetated islets that have evolved on the encircling barrier reefs. These coral atolls have sandy beaches and offer a stunning view back toward those volcanic ranges.

Activities in Tahiti

There’s plenty to do and see on the islands of Tahiti. Snorkeling is always a popular activity. The corals reefs are spectacular as they rise from 80 feet or more to just a few feet deep. SCUBA tours are also available There are van tours and rentals of cars and jeeps ashore where ancient Polynesian temples and other structures can be seen.
