Out 17:00

The Fiji archipelago consists of tiny coral atolls and mountainous forest-clad islands of volcanic origin, and is famed for its aquamarine waters and white sand beaches. Lautoka, the country’s second-largest city and major seaport, is synonymous with sugar, Fiji’s main export. The city is surrounded by the blue Pacific Ocean on the western side and green gold sugar cane and pine trees on the other sides. Stroll the town’s market, where you can purchase a variety of local goods.

Out 17:00

Located on the southeast coast of the island of Viti Levu, Suva is the capital city of Fiji. As the largest urban area in the South Pacific outside of Australia and New Zealand, it is Fiji’s main port city, and the commercial and political center of Fiji. The city hosted the 2003 South Pacific Games, being the third time in the event’s history that they had been held in Suva.

Savusavu was originally established as a trading center for sandalwood, beche-de-mer and copra, and is the site of a major copra mill. Tourism is growing in importance, owing to its diving and yachting facilities. Geothermal energy is resource waiting to be tapped. A geological survey has found that Savusavu’s hot springs could generate enough electricity to power the entire island of Vanua Levu. Savusavu has been called “The Hidden Paradise” of Fiji.

Out 17:00

The waters off of remote and unspoiled Vava’u are home to 100 species of colorful tropical fish, giant clams, manta rays, sea turtles, spinner dolphins, humpback whales. Swim, snorkel, scuba dive, or simply relax on the island’s pristine coral-sand beaches.

Out 17:00

Aitutaki’s coral reefs enclose a particularly large and beautiful lagoon. The main island is only eight square miles in area and is virtually flat-so much so that you can keep the ocean in site from nearly any point on Aitutaki. The island is thought to have been first settled around 900 A.D. by Ru, a legendary Polynesian explorer. Today the island’s inhabitants preserve much of their traditional culture through song, dance, legends, and crafts like tivaevae -handmade, intricate, patchwork quilts featuring designs inspired by nature.

In 08:00
Out 22:00

Bora Bora lies 150 miles northwest of Tahiti in the Society Islands. The main island, home to 4,225 inhabitants, is in the center of a multicolored lagoon, surrounded by offshore “motu” islets inside a protective coral necklace. Its lagoon is world-famous for its beauty. A partially paved road circles the island, passing colorful villages, archeological sites, and old Army bunkers and cannons left over from WWII, when 5,000 American GIs made a “friendly invasion.”

Date 17/10/2022
Location Taha’a (Motu Mahana)
In 08:00
Out 17:00

Enclosed in a common lagoon with Raiatea and accessible only by boat, Taha’a produces about 80% of all vanilla in French Polynesia. Taha’a is the only island in the Society Islands that can be completely circled by ship inside the protected lagoon. With its many deep bays and deserted motu, Taha’a is an ideal island to escape. With only a handful of guest houses and small hotels, Taha’a is slowly awakening to tourism and yet maintains an authentic flavor of Polynesia.

Enjoy a beachside barbeque on our own private island of Motu Mahana – which means it’s your private island for the day. The motu is uninhabited except for fellow guests, and those wonderful Gauguines who will welcome you in song.

Date 18/10/2022
Location Moorea
In 08:00
Out 17:00

Moorea, often likened to James Michener’s mythical island of Bali Hai, is only 11 miles from Tahiti. Many visitors say it is worth the visit just to see Moorea’s spectacular bays. The volcanic peaks, reflected in the waters of Cook’s Bay and Opunohu Bay, rise like a shark’s jaw from the island’s base. Sharks sighting on nearly every dive makes this island a popular diving destination. At times a tuna will come by or dolphins will be heard clicking just out of sight.
