This is a repeat of trip 351 without the sailing part from Moorea. The leeward society islands, which include famous Bora-Bora are pretty crazy famous for good reason. Their close proximity to one another make up an ideal cruising ground, and each has the perfect mix of ingredients that has enchanted visitors since travel to this remote part of the world became possible. Each has high lush mountains surrounded by massive fringing reefs with navigable lagoons. Throw in some of the best surf in the Pacific and consistent trade-winds and well, it's no wonder we're returning for the 5th time, since our first visit in 2001. The lagoons are so large they reflect their turquoise blue off the bottom of the nearly constant cover of puffy cumulous clouds that gives the whole area a surreal glow.

All these facts and more make this are a popular cruising ground and several charter operators run sailing trips in this area. These boats go to easy places with mooring balls, we go out of our way to find the anchorages where we have the place to ourselves and there are plenty. In the morning we'd hike up a hill and see the breathatking views from above. Then in the afternoon when the wind came up- we'd kite for hours in water that was 4 feet deep as far as the eye could see! Next day- repeat!

On this trip you can experience a short overnight crossing from Moorea to Raiatea.

We'll pick you up at the docks in Raiatea, and explore the island and we might zip across to Tahaa, for great lagoon kiting and to get you into some very radical waves. A full on 'Disovery' experience. We promise, we'll be dragging you off the boat when it's time to leave!

Getting there: International flight to Papeete, Tahiti (PPT) on United,or Air Tahiti Nui, then domestic island flight on Air Tahiti to Moorea and return from Raiatea.
