Crewed Private Sailing
Charters in Tahiti (no sailing experience required) -
Do you have a small group of 6-8
people & you are looking for a luxury crewed private yacht charter?
Click here for more details.
An opportunity to charter your own
motor-yacht in Tahiti with their own crew – or for companies to
reward high-producing staff for a job well done – is to charter the
boutique 12-cabin motor-catamaran
Haumana in the remote and idyllic
Tuamotu Archipelago. Haumana normally caters for a maximum of
just 24-holidaymakers soaking up the sun
and the 5-star good life amongst the sparsely-populated islands of
the Rangiroa and Tikehau Lagoons, but is also available for
exclusive value-priced group chartering for three, four or seven
And it includes services of all officers, crew, chefs, dining and
sports staff – even a full-time resident fishing guide – as well as
Jet Skiing, kayaking, visits to unspoiled beaches for
reef-snorkelling and Scuba-diving, to watch dancing in remote
villages, spot dolphins, feed the sharks, and entertainment.
There’s even an almost-Hollywood 4-star beach picnic at tables set
in a lagoon with wines included, and aboard Haumana wines are
complimentary as well with traditional French- and Tahitian-inspired
lunches and dinners, all soft drinks are free throughout cruises and
there’s a Jacuzzi in which to relax.

Tahiti's Leeward Islands
four main islands Raiatea, Tahaa, Huahine and Bora Bora are just five or six
hours sail from each other. Each island is dominated by tall volcanic hills
covered in luscious green undergrowth and surrounded by a coral reef which
shelters its lagoon and fine sandy beaches.
Bora Bora - Jewel of the South Seas
most famous island in Polynesia, Bora Bora is surprisingly small. But what the
tiny gem lacks in size, it makes up for in beauty. Approach it from the air or
sea, and you are greeted with a captivating vision... a coral reef dotted with
emerald islets encircles the main island like a string of luscious pearls. At
the centre of this dramatic setting the chisel-like bulk of Mount Otemanu rises
sharply out of the gentle lagoon.
Raiatea & Tahaa - Sacred Homeland
& Vanilla Island
Raiatea is the second largest island in French Polynesia, situated 120 miles
north-west of Tahiti. Ancient cultural, religious and royal heart of Polynesia,
Raiatea was, according to legend, the birthplace of the gods. From here the
great canoes set out for Hawaii and New Zealand, entire tribes sailing off to
colonise new shores. Long ago the people called the island Havai'i ("the
homeland") and believed it was the place where spirits live on after death. And
it is only here, on the slopes of sacred Mount Temehani, that one can glimpse
the rare tiare apetahi, a flower found nowhere else on earth.
is so named for its numerous plantations of the fragrant vanilla plant, whose
sweet aroma lingers in the air, seeping into every nook and cranny of the
island. While fishing and farming are its main livelihoods, what seduces
visitors are its pretty beaches, coral gardens, and the sandy motu
which pepper the lagoon it shares with Raiatea.
Huahine - The Garden Isle
Least explored of the
Society Islands, Huahine is a happy, peaceful place, where the traditional
Polynesian way of life continues in spectacular scenery that rivals any on
Moorea or Bora Bora. Lush with vanilla plantations, banana groves, and taro
fields, Huahine is actually two islands basking in one lagoon, encircled by a
coral necklace. The lagoon, bordered by white sand beaches, is rich with sea
life. Huahine is also the proud owner of one of the largest and best preserved
archaeological sites: the Maeva marae, which is a group of a number of large
marae at the foot of Mount Mouatapu and on the shores of lake Fauna Nui. Legends
also abound in this island desired by Hiro and now adopted by artists in search
of their roots.
Cooled by the gentle
breezes of the Pacific, the climate of these islands is sunny and pleasant.
Roughly speaking , there are two seasons: from November through March the
climate is warmer and humid, and from April through October the climate is
cooler and drier. Most of the rain falls during the warmer season, but there are
also many lovely sunny days during these months, with refreshing trade-winds.
