Yacht Charter in French Polynesia

Two things that make the Society Islands special: the colour and clarity of the water and the charm of the locals. Sail past Tahiti and Bora Bora and make for the remote islands such as Moorea, Huahine, Maupiti and Tahaa. Towering Mt Rotui divides the beautiful bays of Cook and Opunohu. Take a canoe and some small pieces of fresh fish to hand feed the rays and mantas. Feeling brave? There are dive centres that can take you shark feeding.

With so many islands, bays and anchorages discover, our brokers can guide you to some of the best yachts to charter in French Polynesia and plan the perfect itinerary for a Tahiti yacht charter for you.

Bora Bora

One of the region’s most jaw-droppingly beautiful destinations, the volcanic island of Bora Bora, which is at least four-million-years-old, is home to volcanic peaks, lush tropical vegetation and numerous motus (islets) to explore at your leisure. Kick back on your own private island as you barbecue the day’s catch on your private spit. Swim and snorkel through the lagoon’s clear turquoise waters and climb up to the main island’s towering central mountain for the best view of the myriad blues and greens that make up the lagoon.

The Idyllic, sparsely populated Huahine comprises two islands. Huahine Nui (large) and Huahine Iti (small) offer stunning azure waters, verdant forests, pristine landscape and seemingly endless icing-sugar beaches. Enjoy the delicious cocktail of Polynesian sceneries and ambiance that the islands ooze, and explore the infinite possibilities for adventure and relaxation, alike. Joy and smiles are always around on this island full of natural beauty. One of the last of these islands to succumb to French rule, Huahine has managed to hold onto its traditional way of life in its handful of small quaint villages, with communities here among the least tainted by tourism. Huahine is relatively unchanged by the modern world, offering the slower, more tranquil pace of old Polynesia, with locals welcoming visitors with great kindness.

Only 10 nautical miles from Tahiti, but a world away in terms of its pace and development, Moorea is a spectacularly beautiful island of laid-back resorts, friendly locals, rugged mountains and endless white beaches. You’ll find the best views of Tahiti from here, as well as deep bays, magical volcanic peaks and a wide turquoise lagoon. Hike up through rainforest and pineapple plantations to the famous Belvedere Lookout in the centre of the island, where you’ll find yourself looking out over Cook’s Bay and Oponohu Bay – possibly one of the most spectacular views in the world.

Said to be the birthplace of Polynesia, in Raiatea there is an air of mystique about the place. It is believed that it was from here that the first wave of ancient Polynesian emigration took place, with Polynesians reaching as far north as Hawaii and as far west as New Zealand, and relics of this time can be found in the sacred site of Taputapuatea and in the petroglyphs that can still be seen. It’s hard for modern-day visitors to see why inhabitants would have wanted to leave in the first place, with the warm waters of the lagoon providing the perfect place for the island’s pearl farms and the lush slopes of Mt Temehani giving views many of us travel the world to find.

The largest of the Tuamotu atolls, idyllic Rangiroa is probably also the most famous. Its 40-by-20-mile lagoon is the second largest in the world. At one end, you’ll find the Blue Lagoon, a mini-lagoon whose reef shark-filled waters are reputed to be the bluest in the South Pacific. The atoll is long and narrow and is mostly deserted, but for small pockets of local settlement. Dive into the water at the two natural passes, Tiputa and Avatoru, where you’ll find some of the world’s best drift diving and some of the most spectacular marine life in the Tuamotus, including giant napoleon wrasses, hawksbill turtles, manta and eagle rays, angelfish, banner fish, parrotfish, pink soft anemones, unicornfish, groupers and soldierfish.

Society Islands

French Polynesia’s most famous collection of islands, the Society Islands include Tahiti and Bora Bora, two destinations known for their tantalising exoticism and romantic hideaways. As you sail between the islands there are eye-popping views in all directions: dramatic mountain peaks over 7,000 feet high, giant curls of turquoise surf breaks, reefs encircling cerulean lagoons and deserted white sand beaches and deep valleys of lush tropical rainforests. The Society Islands lie halfway between Australia and California in the South Pacific and are divided into two clusters; the Îles du Vent (Windward Islands) and the Îles Sous le Vent (Leeward Islands). The archipelago is believed to have been named 'Society' by Captain James Cook during his first voyage in 1769, as they lay contiguous to one another.

With the aroma of vanilla following you everywhere you go, Taha’a has retained the charm of old-time Polynesia, making it perfect for a laid-back Tahiti yacht charter. Taha’a is the only island in the Society Islands that can be completely circumnavigated by boat inside the protected lagoon and if you fancy dropping anchor for a night or two, we recommend the elegant Relais & Chateaux property, Le Taha’a Island Resort & Spa. There are no demands on your time here, yet there’s plenty to do. Sail between white stretches of sand along azure waters, trek up mountains through tropical rainforest and vanilla plantations, seek out your own motu, visit one of the many pearl farms or attend a performance by local village dancers.

An island so internationally renowned for its loveliness that its name is often used to refer to the whole of French Polynesia, beautiful Tahiti is a place of towering mountains, deep valleys and cascading waterfalls, all covered with rainforest and vibrant tropical flowers. Hit the links on the island’s championship golf course, go horse-riding along pristine white beaches, take a helicopter ride or slip into the ultra-clear water to go water skiing, snorkelling, diving or deep-sea fishing. In the capital, Papeete, you’ll find bustling markets (the municipal Le Marché is one of the best), world-class restaurants, pearl shops, museums, nightclubs and boutiques.

Tuamotu Atolls

This chain of nearly 80 islands – the world’s largest chain of coral atolls – stretches over an area roughly the size of Western Europe across the Pacific Ocean like a string of bright pearls on a turquoise mirror. This is the South Pacific you’ve been searching for – the quiet, undeveloped paradise that many seek but few find. The Tuamotu Atolls are a world-class destination for scuba divers, famous for producing Tahitian black pearls due to the particularly good climatic and ecological conditions of the lagoons. The dive site of Tiputa Pass boasts a collection of incredible fish from dolphins and reef sharks, to schools of barracuda and jack, and is often touted as one of the best dive sites in the world.
