Island Life: Tahiti and French Polynesia
Activity Level: Moderately Active
We invite you to follow in the wake of the ancient Polynesian mariners as you explore the fascinating culture and history of the South Pacific on this delightful seven-night voyage through the sublime paradise of French Polynesia. Sail aboard the elegant, yet casual, S.Y. Star Flyer, a four-masted barkentine that evokes the great ocean voyages of the 19th century, as it retraces the course of the legendary Captain Cook through the azure waters of Tahiti, Bora Bora, Moorea, Raiatea and Huahine. Immerse yourself in the incomparable beauty of these isles as you snorkel and swim in the pristine waters and idyllic lagoons that surround them. Spend your days reveling in their tropical grandeur as you explore their untouched landscapes. Experience the legendary warmth and hospitality of their people and feel inspired by their vibrant history, culture and mythology through an included series of tours and specially arranged lectures by local cultural historian and environmental expert Frank Murphy.
