Tikehau to Moorea

Trip Days Ports of Call Dates
136 10 Tikehau and Moorea Aug 4 - Aug 14, 2014
Want to live in a postcard for 10 days? Here you go. Tikehau- reef and lagoon paradise. Moorea- mountain, anchorage, hiking, surf, kiting paradise. French Polynesia has 5 distinct island groups, this trip gives you a taste for both extremes- the lagoon atolls of the Tuamotus, and the lush vertical cloud-shrouded Society islands that have captivated explorers, artists and poets since Captain Cook landed there 3 centuries ago. This adventure has a mix of it all. Moorea and Tahiti are easily two of the most stunning land falls in the world, and the run from Tikehau to Moorea is a great reach- last time around it was one of our best sails of the season (except the part where we lost a fish that was so big the recoil put the lure on deck)! Landfall there in Cook Bay will blow your mind. Then we'll hook up with our friend the whale whisperer and spend some time nose to nose with Humpback whales and dolphins. Like I said- a postcard.

Here's a little video, some of it shot in Tikehau, just to get the blood pulsing with excitement:

Getting there: International flight to Papeete, Tahiti (PPT), then domestic on Air Tahiti Nui to Tikehau. From Moorea it's an easy 20 minute ferry back to Tahiti at the end of the trip. We suggest a few days at the recently built Ninamu Motu Resort before your trip starts, especially if the surf is pumping (very very nice), and a great way to acclimate before your journey!
