Day By Day

Day 1 – Arrive in Papeete

Once you clear customs and immigration, look for your name on the board.  Your Tekura Tahiti representative will assist you to your transfer vehicle.

Papeete, the capital and commercial hub of French Polynesia, hosts the government offices, hospitals, banks, airline and travel agencies, boutiques and black pearl shops.  The Central Market (Marché Central) is a must, located 1 block behind the waterfront. You will see traditional Tahitian crafts, flowers, fruits, fish and other produce.  The waterfront is attractive, with a tree lined promenade along a marina with an international yachting community.

A busy small city, Papeete hums with happy sounds in a tropical atmosphere with French flavor and an easygoing Tahitian disposition.

Starting Accommodation: InterContinental Tahiti

Day 2 – Papeete to Moorea

Please wait in the hotel lobby area for your transfer to Papeete airport for your flight to Moorea. Upon arrival you will be transferred to your accommodation.

Less than 10 minutes away from Tahiti by air or less than one hour by ferry are the deep, spectacular bays and white sand beaches of Moorea. The craggy volcanic peaks, reflected in the tranquil waters of Cook's Bay and Oponohu Bay, rise like a shark's jaw from the island's basaltic base. The lush mountain slopes are covered with rain forest or pineapple plantations, and white sand beaches border crystalline lagoons.

Lunch will be enjoyed reef side at the Pointe de Temae, with a typical Polynesian dish served with a glass of punch. A short break will give you time to stroll along the beach, collect some nice shells and swim in the lagoon. In the afternoon, you will be driven to Afareaitu where an easy hike up of about 15 minutes will take you to one of the waterfalls of the valley. Do not hesitate to take a dip! An enjoyable day for the discovery of the different facets of Moorea.

Befriend a local guide and hike the emerald valleys, give your camera a workout at Belvedere Lookout where you'll be mesmerized by the blue horizon. Wrap yourself in a rainbow by wearing tie-dyed pareus (sarongs), a Moorean specialty, or frolic with dolphins in crystalline lagoons at Dolphin Quest.

Day 6 – Moorea to Bora Bora

Bora Bora - Unquestionably the most mythical of the Pacific islands remains the island of all dreams. So much has been written about Bora Bora, and yet it is hard to find the right words to describe the magic that emanates from this island.

Seen from the air, the view has been compared to that of "a tiny emerald in a setting of turquoise, encircled by a sheltering necklace of sparkling pearls". The airport, built by US forces in 1942, is located on a palm fringed motu about 20 minutes by boat from the main village of Vaitape. The view of the main island from the airport is truly breathtaking, and as you travel across the spectacular lagoon you will soon understand why it is the main area of attraction for most visitors.

Starting Accommodation: Conrad Bora Bora Nui
Meals: Breakfast, Dinner

Day 7 – Ultimate Shark and Ray Watching

Embark on a nice motorized outrigger boat to meet the colorful fish, stingrays and black tip sharks. It is to the sound of ukulele that your Polynesian guide will lead you to the motu where a tasty lunch of grills and typical Tahitian dishes is prepared for you. Sit on one of the common large tables and enjoy a local entertainment while sipping a cool drink.

Starting Accommodation: Conrad Bora Bora Nui
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 8 – At leisure, Bora Bora

When you see its crown of lush green volcanic peaks, you can understand why the late James A. Michener described Bora Bora as the most beautiful island in the South Pacific. Bora Bora is encircled by a multihued lagoon and protected by a wall of coral reef. Traverse this tiny island on bicycle and chat with locals, or explore Bora Bora's rugged interior on a jeep safari tour.

Starting Accommodation: Conrad Bora Bora Nui
