Polynesia

vagues

When we speak of heaven on earth, Polynesia immediately comes to our mind.

Polynesia is a green oasis surrounded by turquoise blue water, and populated by people whose kindness is legendary. A paradise to discover during a cabin cruise on a luxury catamaran with skipper and crew or renting your own sailboat or catamaran.

The beautiful and exotic islands of French Polynesia have captivated sailors for centuries. Of volcanic origin, they are most often surrounded by a navigable lagoon with many natural shelters.

Polynesia counts 117 islands spread over four main archipelagos: the Society Islands, Tuamotu, Gambier and Marquesas islands. This region is as vast as Western Europe. The main islands of the Society include Bora Bora, Raiatea, Tahaa, and Huahine. These are the sparkling jewels that you will discover during your cruise in Tahiti, on our sailing boats or catamarans for rent.

Raiatea

From Raiatea you will discover some of the jewels of the South Pacific. You will sail quietly with the steady and warm trade winds that will guide you through the colorful coral reefs and the beautiful clear waters of the lagoons.

Rangiroa (Tuamotu)

If your itinerary takes you to the Tuamotu, you will visit the most beautiful atolls of Polynesia. Rangiroa is a huge turquoise lagoon lined with white sand beach. A little tour to the coral garden and the enchantment is there: multicolored fish, moray eels, dolphins.

Crossing downwind will then take you to Tikehau, the Bird Island and Eden Farm, waiting for you on a wild expedition. A dive with manta rays on the old pearl farm will end this unforgettable cruise to Tuamotu.

Bora Bora

Long preferred by sailors, Bora Bora is one of the small tropical paradises of the South Pacific. A single barrier reef encircles the two islands that make up Bora Bora. One of the major interests of the lagoon is the quality of snorkeling and swimming. The smallest island, Topua, is the only remnant of the Bora Bora volcano. Safe anchorages, white sand beaches, restaurants, shops, art galleries, luxury hotels, shore excursions, such are the pleasures offered by Bora Bora.

Huahine

Known locally as "Garden Island" because of its lush rainforests, vanilla, copra and watermelon cultures, Huahine is actually made up of two mountainous islands connected by a short strip of land. It is less crowded than Bora Bora or Tahiti. Miles of white sand beaches, safe anchorages, wonderful snorkeling are the major assets of this South Pacific treasure.

Weather

In this region with a humid tropical climate, there are two seasons, the dry season from May to October (the austral winter) and the wet season from November to April (the austral summer), a period when cyclones can be born.

From May to October, regular sector trade winds are producing more sunny, well-ventilated days, interspersed with a period of strong (20 knots) south wind and cold called Maraamu. The period from November to April experiences days of calm, hot, saturated humidity (> 80%).
