On arrival in Papeete, Island Escape will meet you at the airport and have a private transfer for your night at the Intercontinental Tahiti (or a similar style and quality – based on availability). The room includes breakfast the following morning before a private transfer to Papeete Airport. After the cruise, the transfer to Bora Bora airport and the return Sunday flight to Papeete. Once back in Papeete your own arrangements will apply.

Sunday - Bora Bora Tahiti

After a short flight from Papeete, the airport ferry (this is included in the air ticket) transfers you to Vaitape. We suggest an afternoon flight. We meet you from the ferry terminal at 4:30 pm with refreshments and cold towels before we transfer to you to the ship for boarding at 5pm. Take time to explore your home for the next week, meet fellow guests and our fabulous crew. A light snack is served on deck as we move to the lagoon for the evening. After dinner onboard, you are invited to Captain's cocktails with stunning mountains as a backdrop. We remain inside the lagoon for a comfortable sleep at anchor.

Monday - Bora Bora to Raiatea

There is time for a swim off the ship before we depart at 10 am to cruise west across the Bora Bora lagoon (don't worry- we'll be back) and depart on a 2-hour crossing to the island pair of Taha'a and Raiatea. Lunch is served on entering the lagoon at Herepiti Bay on the Southwestern side of Taha'a before proceeding to Uturoa, the main centre in Raiatea which itself is the largest centre in French Polynesia outside of Papeete. Uturoa has a variety of local stores, local markets, bars, cafes and you will be free to explore the township for the afternoon. Dinner is served when all guests are back onboard at 6 pm.

Tuesday - Raiatea to Motu Iriru

After breakfast you will transfer to a large outrigger canoe for a guided tour and stories from one of the real local characters. Prepare to be entertained as he shows off the eastern lagoon on Raiatea and winds up the tiny Faaroa River, Tahiti's only "navigable river". On departing the river we arrive at Motu Iriru for a picnic lunch and a coconut class on the sand. Swimming here is beautiful so hats and sunscreen are a must. Return to the ship by late afternoon, which will now be moored at an adjacent Motu for water activities and an overnight anchorage alongside white sand beaches and palm trees.

Wednesday - Motu Iriru to Huahin

After a tropical breakfast on deck and the chance for an early swim, we leave Motu Iriru and head for Huahine. All of the islands are reasonably close so we plan to arrive, be anchored in Fare Harbour, and have the activities underway before noon. Huahine is known as the garden island due to an abundance of lush tropical foliage. It is also extremely picturesque with steep mountains descending into protected bays of azure blue and emerald green waters.

You may wander the pretty village of Fare. You will find a nice assortment of local stores and boutiques where you will uncover some Polynesian treasures and souvenirs. This afternoon we welcome you to a guided island land tour. This tour will leave from our adjacent pier and circumnavigate the largest island of Huahine Nui. You will visit a vanilla plantation, the Maeva Marae archaeological site, famous blue eyed eels and unique stone fish traps still in use by locals before photos at Belvedere lookout while on the way back to the ship, in time for a cold drink and canapés on deck at sunset. A local island choir comes onboard to charm us with their traditional music and songs before dinner is served under the stars.

Thursday - Huahine to Taha'a

Today is the beginning of 3 glorious beach days. We depart Huahine around 1000 for the short 20-mile passage to Taha'a eastern reef. Lunch will be served underway inside the reef as we circumnavigate the northern shores of this amazing region. Motu's everywhere, turquoise water- this is the place to swim, kayak, paddleboard and snorkel or have one of the crew to help you explore by tender. No organised tours here- just unbelievable unspoilt beauty. Today could be a sunscreen and Hinano Tahitian beer day! We will overnight on anchor at Tapu Amu. The setting is special with the reef in the foreground and the towering peaks of Bora Bora in the distance. The fishing is spectacular in this lagoon if you wish to join a fishing team off the aft deck after dinner.

Friday - Taha'a to Bora Bora

Welcome to Paradise. After a 3-hour journey we enter the Bora Bora lagoon at Vaitape. You are welcome to come up to the bridge before breakfast, when the sun rises over the Pacific Ocean, as we make our way through the entrance in the reef. Either have lunch on board or catch le truck for 900cfp and go to Bloody Mary's Bar for an experience of a lifetime. Sand floors and a history that stretches back 30 years and an experience you will enjoy. If you wish we will tender you to a motu with drinks and equipment for more sun and swimming. Tonight is the Captains dinner from 6:00pm.

Saturday - Bora Bora

After breakfast the tenders will run to our white sand beach at Tevairoa (large motu) for more water activities. Later in the morning the ship will depart for the east lagoon where using the ships' landing craft we will explore the eastern lagoon -home to all the exclusive resorts. We will return to Tevairoa for our final night BBQ dinner and local show on the island. This could be the last night of active festivities.

Sunday - Bora Bora

Oh my dear - where did the week go. Breakfast is served on deck before the tenders transfer guests to Vaitape Ferry terminal at 0930 for some last minute shopping. From here you have a ferry transfer to either the airport or to one of the resorts if you are staying longer in paradise.

Guests will be met at Vaitape wharf (Bora Bora) at 4:30pm by Island Escape crew for tender-transfer to ship

The ferry transfer from Bora Bora airport to Vaitape wharf on Bora Bora island is included as part of the domestic Air Tahiti flight ticket

On last morning of cruise, tender transfers will be provided to Vaitape wharf after breakfast to meet ferry for departure flight
