Where we Sail
| Tahiti & Society Islands|
In 1891, when Paul Gauguin arrived in Tahiti, he captured the charm, culture and grace of the natives in oil paintings. You won't find his paintings here, but the original models still call this piece of French Polynesia home. This 7-night itinerary is perfect for those who want a core Polynesian experience.
Call on Raiatea and its reef-bound lagoon and Taha'a, it's companion island, where you'll enjoy a full day of exploration. Then sail to Bora Bora, and her siren sister, Moorea.
There's a reason these islands are world-renowned - their beauty is unmatched.

It is noted for its fantastic diving - you may see rays, sharks, dolphins, and myriad small reef fish. Go on to call at legendary Bora Bora, Taha'a, and Moorea

| Cook and Society Islands|
On this South Pacific Odyssey, you'll discover the isle of Huahine, renowned for its spectacular rain forests. Then experience the unique majesty of the Cook Islands. Arid Aitutaki is virtually flat-so much so that you can spot the ocean from nearly any point on the island, sitting in sharp contrast to sister island Rarotonga's jagged peaks and deep valleys. Rarotonga's fertile slopes of red earth and sparkling aquamarine lagoon call to mind the classic Victorian ideal of paradise, which the island was called by its first European explorers. Return to the Society Islands for days in alluring Bora Bora, Taha'a, Moorea, and Papeete.
