Air Tahiti is the most popular domestic flight carrier and the fastest way between the islands. After a 45-minute flight from Tahiti with the only one domestic airline Air Tahiti, you will see both islands, Raiatea and Taha’a. The Society Islands include the island of Taha’a (or Uporu as it was known in its old name), in the same lagoon that is the island of Raiatea. If you have ever wondered what your yachty friends enjoy about ocean cruising in the Pacific Islands, here is your chance to find out.

The Coral Gardens located adjacent to the resort are exceptional – it was only my 2nd snorkeling opportunity ever and I’m hooked! So many clients want to be able to snorkel without having to take a paid for excursion so the proximity to fabulous snorkeling is such an asset. With tourism returning to Tahiti, so too are activities and excursions. When you stand up paddle boarding or kayaking, or snorkeling, you won’t need to wear a mask. You won’t wear you mask as you jet ski across an azure blue lagoon with Mt Otemanu rising like a Greek Adonis draped in a blanket of rainforest that falls upon a sugar white sand beach. While on an ATV ride, you won’t need to wear a mask.

Huahine, one of French Polynesia’s best kept secrets, is 40 minutes by air from Papeete, 35 minutes from Moorea or 35 minutes from Bora Bora. Huahine is actually 2 islands which are joined by a bridge. Its features are its amazing deep water lagoon where you can sail for kilometres in sheltered waters, its “country village” feeling and its welcoming inhabitants.
