Ia Orana!

Lets plan a romantic adventure to the Islands of Tahiti - are you pondering the shores of Bora Bora, Moorea, Tikihau, exploring Hauahine, Tahaa & Riataea.…how about cruising the Marquesas Islands?  Sailing is a great way to see the islands of French Polynesia. Here are some options for you - but you need to act fast these ships are small - which is exactly the way you want to experience these tropical islands of the South Pacific...

Tahiti Yacht Charter
- this is a private catamaran with just you, the skipper/cook.  They can do 3-7 night sailings out in Raiatea, Taha’a, Huahine & Bora Bora.

Paul Gauguin Cruises - This is the only boutique 5 star luxury cruise line sailing through the Society Islands, usually they have 7 night itineraries and some 10-11 nights.   They cruise with a maximum of 311 passengers - really more of a very upscale yachting experience.

Dream Yacht Charter (formerly Archipels) -These are 4 cabin catamarans with up to 3 other couples and the skipper/cook with a variety of itineraries in the Society Islands and Tuamotu Islands.

Aranui III - This is a 13 night sailing aboard a working freighter which will take passengers up to the Marquesas Islands.  There are a few cabins on board for guests.

NOTE: I priced the Aranui 3 in a stateroom cabin with private bathroom, including airfare from LAX, transfers on a 13 night cruise beginning the first week of April 2013, the price for 2 is $10,383.00 just to give us a ballpark.
