Papeete on Tahiti is the capital. The Society Islands, the Leeward Islands, are the most popular yacht charter area. Bora-Bora, Raiatea, Tahaa, and Huahine, are the main islands to visit during your yacht charter.

Tahiti, Moorea, and Bora-Bora rise majestically out of the sea. Its beautiful white sand beaches, reefs, colorful coral, and sea life are mystical. Activities range from snorkeling, scuba diving, sailing, fishing, buying pearls, and visiting archaeological sites to enjoying the local cuisine.

The Tuamotu Archipelago lies southeast of Tahiti, and Rangiroa is the main island.

The Culture

Each island is unique, from the bustling metropolitan Tahiti to the relaxed Raiatea with abundant breadfruit trees and flowers. The island also serves as the center for most smaller catamaran charters.

The vibrant Polynesian culture is contagious. At the airport, you will be greeted with warm smiles and serenades.

The following are links to sample itineraries for The Society Islands, Marquesas, and Cook Islands.
