TAHITI YACHT RALLY

2 to 13 October 2021

AU$ 6,885 per person twin share, for 11 nights

Combine a week of sailing on these spectacular lagoons with a magical 2 nights stay in a luxury overwater bungalow in Huahine and 2 nights on the bay in Papeete at the Manava Suite Hotel.

Our Rally begins in Papeete with accomodation and airport transfer included on arrival. Fly from Papeete to Raiatea the next day, where the yachts are based and sail from Raiatea, one way to Bora Bora, visiting stunning places along the way. The sailing takes place over 7 days with day trips ashore available each day.

Your catamaran offers space and stability on the water. It’s modern and comfortable, with areas to relax both below and on deck. Throw down a cushion, curl up and read a book, or make use of the easy access to the water for a swim or snorkel. Bora Bora lagoon is still home to many rays including the famous manta ray. The light for photography here is second to none – you will not need ‘Photoshop’ to enhance your photographic efforts.

Continue from Bora Bora to Huahine, just a 20 minute flight away, where you can dip your feet into the water from your very own private overwater bungalow also included in the yacht rally package.

If you ever dreamed of sailing in Tahiti, this is the perfect opportunity.

Here’s how it works
