TAHITI | March 4 – 13, 2016

Moorea is one of the most striking islands in French Polynesia. Possessing a relaxed vibe and welcoming spirit, Moorea is just as warm and inviting as the Tahitians luck enough to call this home. The island is a geographical marvel. Eight voluminous mountain peaks rise from its translucent lagoon, creating a distinctive and rugged silhouette visible from the western coast of Tahiti. The unique landscape gives Moorea a reputation for being one of the best islands for adventure and activity – both on land and on the water.

Undoubtedly the most celebrated island in the South Pacific, Bora Bora is French Polynesia’s leading lady. Bora Bora is one of the few places on earth that everyone hopes to witness in their lifetime – and once you see it, you are forever enamored. The wonderful thing about Bora Bora is that you can be as active or inactive as you wish to be. Visit the main village or take the adventure to the water, you will quickly come to the understanding that this destination is a fantasy come true.
