Cruises to Raiatea

Meaning "Faraway Heaven," Raiatea is an island of astounding beauty, ancient myths and home to French Polynesia's largest outdoor temple (marae). Many believe the island is the centre from which the great Polynesian migration started and is considered the most sacred island in the South Pacific. A coral reef teeming with colourful marine life surrounds Raiatea in a tranquil lagoon - ideal for snorkelling and diving. After a dip in the lagoon, explore lush rainforests and the extinct volcano Mount Temehani. Enjoy your day on this culturally significant island where history, legend and natural beauty intertwine.
