Charter Tahiti's boutique 5-Star ‘Cat
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 nights.
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-snorkeling 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.

Cruise Tahiti's Leeward Islands

The 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

    Undoubtedly the 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.

    Tahaa 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

   P31-a.JPG (645929 bytes) 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.



From April to June: Best period of the year, with moderate trade winds blowing from the East- 10 to 15 knots with gusts up to 25 knots. The temperature is around 30C and the sea water about 26C.

From July to August: Tahiti winter with cooler temperatures and usually stronger South-easterly winds from 25 to 35 knots with gusts up to 40-45 knots. Day temperatures around 28C, night temperatures falling to 20C; sea water around 24C.

From September to October: Rather pleasant period with moderate winds from the East 10 to 15 knots. The second half of October may be rainy with the beginning of the rain season.

The dry season, which is the 'winter' is cooler (78-85F) and more windy. It runs from May to September. 'Fall' is April & May and 'Spring' is September & October. These are probably the best months to come sailing.

From November to March: Rainy period with weak winds from the North, North West at times, otherwise mainly blowing from the East; Hurricanes may occur at this time of the year. Average temperature 85-95F.
