The Polynesians were the world’s first great voyagers, settling much of the South Pacific long before Christopher Columbus sailed the ocean blue. Raiatea, in the Tahitian Leewards, was a major center of Polynesian culture. Today, it’s a prime location for a Tahiti yacht charter, along with the nearby isles of Bora-Bora, Huahine, and Tahaa. Coral reefs encircle the islands, creating calm lagoons where snorkeling, scuba diving, and swimming off white-sand beaches is a pure delight. Fjord-like bays embraced by soaring mountains make beautiful anchorages, secluded and serene.
Most famous for fabled Bora-Bora, the Tahitian Leeward Islands are a sailor’s paradise. Snug anchorages within encircling barrier reefs and stunning mountains soaring skyward make a Tahiti and French Polynesia yacht charter the adventure of a lifetime.
