Wind Star Cruises

A graceful sailing yacht is the perfect way to experience the true wonder of Tahiti. We’ll let the trade winds fill our sails as we visit one legendary island after another, staying overnight in most to give you time to swim and snorkel in crystal-clear lagoons, meander through lush rainforests, and experience the fascinating Polynesian culture from tikis to tiare flowers. When you’re not searching for secluded waterfalls, choosing a fragrant bloom to go behind your ear, or snorkeling vibrant reefs, you can watch the passing scenery from your favorite spot on deck. Or come up to the bridge to visit with the captain and plot our course to the next sparkling jewel on our itinerary. Live your Polynesian dream as you sail through azure waters to islands and atolls that define the word “paradise.”

Day-to-Day Itinerary

Day 1 - Papeete, Tahiti, French Polynesia

Relax on sunny beaches, sample Tahitian fare, and take in the effervescent spirit of the city. But whatever you do, save time — and luggage space — for shopping. Black pearls and colorful crafts fill the market and local treasures are so plentiful you’ll have trouble making your choices.

Day 2 - At Sea

Day 3 - Takapoto, French Polynesia

Today we celebrate with a festive barbecue on the amazing white sand beach. We’ll swim, snorkel, and play in one of the world’s most beautiful lagoons while sumptuous island food is spread out for our indulgence. Learn about the islands’ legendary black pearls firsthand – or visit the tiny village for a true Polynesian experience.

Day 4 - Tiputa, French Polynesia

Some people call this place heaven. You will call it perfect. The huge lagoon surrounded by beautiful coral and filled with colorful fish, rays, and dolphin is a diver’s dream. Explore in a glass bottom boat, take a dive that matches your level of expertise, or enjoy the magic of drift snorkeling. This is a place like no other on earth.

Day 5 - At Sea

Day 6 - Huahine, French Polynesia

Anchor here in the place whose nickname is “Garden of Eden.” Take your time to explore the lush forests, the tropical landscapes, and the quaint villages to discover one of Polynesia’s best kept secrets. Here, at a slower pace, see a glimpse of the authentic South Pacific island lifestyle. And you’ll have your pick of the world’s best snorkeling once again from the decks of your own beautiful yacht.

Day 7 - Raiatea, French Polynesia

This magical island will capture you, just as it’s captured those who have come to its shores for over 1,000 years. After our leisurely overnight at anchor here, you’ll wonder how anyone ever mustered the will to leave. Once again, snorkeling is divine, whether you choose to explore the coral reef or simply splash into the aquamarine heaven from the Watersports Platform. Or just stretch out and relax in the sun — this is life in paradise.

Day 8 - Bora Bora, French Polynesia

Your stay here allows plenty of time to capture the beauty in photographs — and you’ll want plenty. These stunning waters will show a different kaleidoscope of blue in each frame. You’ll have lots of options for exploration, whether you prefer the access provided by a 4-by-4, or the thrill of riding in the open air.

Day 9 - Bora Bora, French Polynesia

Stretch out on stunning white-sand beaches, dive and swim in brightly colored seas, or sail among the tiny islands and lagoons. This is the stuff that dreams are made of.

Day 10 - Moorea, French Polynesia

Welcome to paradise, where your stunning surroundings soak up superlatives and call for more. In our overnight stay here you’ll have plenty of time to do it all. Be sure to consider the opportunity to hone your photography talents on an optional tour of the island in the company of a professional photographer. Your choices here are endless. Hike the majestic Three Coconut Trail. Visit dolphins in their native habitat. Or spend your time swimming, snorkeling, and kayaking from Wind Spirit’s Watersports Platform as we lay at anchor in these beautiful sapphire seas.

Day 11 - Papeete, Tahiti, French Polynesia

Disembark for your travels home.
