Bora Bora Cruises
– Private Yacht Experience
7 days/6 nights departing
Bora Bora every Monday morning, returning to Bora Bora Sunday
Monday – Lagoon
Hues, Bora Bora.
This morning we welcome guests at Bora Bora airport on the ‘Motu
Mute’ – small islet on the coral reef fringe that frames Bora
Bora’s principle island. Today is the day to settle in, relax
and discover your private yacht which will be home for the next
week. Visit the small village of Vaitape, head for the beach or
schedule an onboard anti-stress massage. Finish the day with a
leisurely sunset cruise eased along with local music from the
onboard ‘Kuru’ (crew).
Tuesday – Vanilla
An early morning arrival at this stunning
smaller island that shares an enormous lagoon with sister island
Raiatea. Help prepare and enjoy a traditional island feast, take
lessons in life in the tropics and make the most of the sun,
snorkeling, kayaks, and swimming in pristine lagoons. We’ll
complete the day with a cruise around this island’s lagoons past
postcard perfect motus, and after dinner we’ll slip across the
lagoon to Raiatea.
Wednesday – River and Motu, Raiatea.
Start the day with a visit to the marae (temple) that is central
to the ancient Polynesian civilization that was starting place
for the great migration that peopled lands as far away as
Hawai’i, Easter Island and New Zealand. A late morning kayak up
the idyllic Faaroa River, French Polynesia’s only navigable
river, a botanical garden visit, and an afternoon of beach and
lagoon life at Iriru motu. Following a barbeque under the stars,
we’ll invite you to the ‘motu movies’, a unique open air cinema
experience that not even Hollywood could have imagined. Many
guests like to finish the evening with a spot of late-night
fishing, where the aft underwater projectors make the landing of
the next day’s breakfast a rather spectacular affair.
Tropical Beauty, Huahine.
After an early morning crossing from Raiatea, the scene is set
for an exclusive event – our lagoon breakfast. Fine linen, tepid
crystalline waters, and a full array of breakfast temptations,
complemented with a crisp cool flute of champagne. The rest of
the morning is yours to laze at a stunning beach, or to explore
the surrounding tropical landscape. The afternoon sees us visit
the tiny port village of Fare, and we follow with an evening
presentation of traditional music performed by a very special
Friday - Island
An early morning return crossing from Huahine sees us at quay in
‘downtown’ Uturoa – the Leeward Islands’ largest township and
administrative center. Mid-morning we visit a working Tahitian
black pearl farm where these tropical treasures are farmed and harvested
in preparation for setting in sublime jewelry. An early
afternoon cruise and time for a swim from the Yacht’s aft
‘beach’, is followed by a trek up Mount Tapioi which offers up a
myriad of island views at sunset whilst we treat you for your
efforts with a cool Maitai cocktail. It’s Friday night, an after
dinner Tahitian dance group entertains, and for those wanting a
little late night fun, we’d be happy to accompany you to small
local nightclub for a little entertainment and dancing.
Pacific Pearl, Bora Bora.
The weekend begins as we return early to the multiple turquoise
hues of Bora Bora’s lagoon. Today is the day to experience one
or more of Bora Bora’s wonderful excursions that we offer as
options, or to just return to laze at the beach. A black pearl
jewelry presentation precedes our Saturday night on board, a
time to celebrate the week’s discovery and enjoy another dinner
with new friends.
Sunday – Island
Sunday, Bora Bora.
This morning we offer an opportunity to visit a local church,
with roof-lifting hymns and a local attendance resplendent in
its island Sunday best. For those wanting a special piece of
Tahitian black pearl jewelry, the world’s leading producers,
Robert Wan Pearls welcome our guests for an exclusive viewing.
There’s also a occasion for another swim in Bora Bora’s clear
lagoon waters before it is time to bid your Cruise Yacht
farewell and return to Bora Bora airport.

risers, followed by a full a la carte breakfast service. Those
