On days when you don’t want to dive deep below the surface head on land to one of the archipelago’s many islands for days of adventure, culture and unique activity. On land, you will explore deserted islands in ATVs reaching areas that are usually only accessible on foot. Find tiny villages replete with traditions and unique cultures. Listen to stories of how the people in this remote region have carved a life for themselves, living off the land and sea. Discover local history and gain a deeper understanding of what it takes to survive and thrive on these islands.
You will use these skills that you have learned later as you are left stranded on an otherwise deserted island. Alongside survival experts, you will construct a shelter, forage for food, and learn how to build and light a fire. Spent the entire night on the island under your shelter and return to your vessel in the morning for a well-earned breakfast on deck.
Visit stretching pearl farms in search of rare Tahitian Black Pearls and feed on coconut crabs at dusk. In the evening, anchor off a pristine beach and make your way onto the soft sand. Here, a roaring bonfire will be ready and waiting and you can enjoy a delicious wild barbecue accompanied by the soft sounds of local musicians. Dance barefoot on the beach as the sun sets setting the sky and ocean ablaze.
On board, help your captain navigate the rugged atolls that hide beneath the surface. Climb the mast and witness the glittering expanse stretching far away from you in every direction. Kitesurf or wingfoil off verdant islands and race Polynesian kayaks through the clear waters. Use glass bottom canoes or SUPs to paddle easily through the waters witnessing hoards of marine species darting through the waters below you. Learn how to spearfish alongside extraordinarily talented local fishermen. If you prove successful, bring your catch back to your waiting vessel and your onboard chef can prepare it to perfection over an open fire.
After days of adventure, enjoy evenings spent on the aft deck with a sundowner in hand. On your final night, enjoy a party onboard complete with cocktails, dancing, and a delicious, gourmet meal made from the freshest local ingredients paired with wine from Tahiti’s only winery which lies in the Tuamotu Archipelago.
