tahiti cruises

The Islands of Tahiti by cruise ship? Yes, please.

If there’s one sense memory you won’t shake for life, it’s approaching The Islands of Tahiti from the water — watching as the islands grow in front of your eyes, emerging from the bright blue waters. Smelling the sweet, tropical flowers as they begin to waft around you. Touching your feet down on the warm, white sands.

There’s just one question – which vessel?

Cruise ship, yacht, superyacht or sailboat – how to choose? No matter. The South Pacific islands and atolls are made up of 118 islands and more than 1000 stopovers to fill your honeymooning soul.

Think luxury ships smaller than the average cruise line, greeted by friendly staff with flower leis strumming ukuleles to celebrate your arrival. No swells, pitching, or rolling will disturb you on the Polynesian lagoons surrounding the islands. They are protected by the coral reef that lives beneath the water, keeping it calm and smooth for your cruising pleasure.

Fill Your Itinerary, or Don’t

You’re completely free to choose when you cruise through The Islands of Tahiti. Never-ending adventure or complete tranquility?

If you crave experiences, onboard crews will teach you ancestral traditions such as weaving, dancing, and painting on pareos. Off the vessel, there’s only crystal-clear waters, colorful coral reefs and the marine life that inhabits it. On land, roam the tropical vanilla plantations, take a tour of the pearl farms, and fully immerse yourself into the Polynesian culture.

If you’re for full relaxation, you will be pampered to the full extent. The crew is not only attentive but extremely proud of their culture and history and keen to share their deep attachment to happiness and respect. Just being around their energy will instantly relax you. Sit and listen as they happily offer their insights to the islands.

Did you know? Seeing The Islands of Tahiti by sea is essential to experiencing 99% of the country — the land only makes up 1%.  So book your Tahitian cruise and start packing!
