    The natural treasures of Tahiti are yours to discover during this scenic, half-day orientation tour of the island's east coast.


    Head towards the East Coast of Tahiti, where you’ll stop at Venus Point, the historic landing site for most European discoverers and evangelists. It boasts the only lighthouse on the island which was built in 1867.


    Continue down the south of the island, passing steep coastlines and stop for refreshments before visiting the Spring Garden of Vaipahi where rare species of precious wood and tropical flowers can be found.


    A short photo stop at the famous Papara Surf black sand beach will be made prior to the conclusion of the tour. Your drive back to the pier will lead you along the West coast to complete your full island drive.

    Embrace the undersea beauty of Tahiti's blue waters during this scenic and memorable lagoon discovery tour.


    Depart the pier for the short ride to your snorkeling site. Depending on the weather conditions (winds and currents), you will journey to Tahiti's west coast, enjoying views of the mountains and shoreline.


    Shortly after departure, your captain will anchor in one of the most accessible sandbars, in 4 to 10-feet of water. This short dip allows to take in the nicest views from the lagoon & the mountain background and gets you into the clear waters of the island for an enjoyable swim. Masks and snorkels will be available for those who wish to discover the abundance of tropical fish living in these waters. Keep an eye out for dolphins and stingrays, which are often seen in the area.


    Swim, or soak in the warm sea, then re-board your boat and sip a refreshment before heading back to the pier.

    Board your 4-wheel drive vehicle at the pier and venture deep into the unspoiled interior of Tahiti. Head towards the East Coast, passing by the island coastal road. While passing through bustling Papeete cannot be avoided, you will soon leave it behind and make your way to the Papenoo Valley.


    Pass cascading waterfalls, luxuriant tropical vegetation, exotic flowers, and discover an array of unspoiled treasures. Make sure you bring your camera to capture the beauty of the scenery and the breathtaking views from this valley. Dependent on timing, you may be able to take a quick refreshing dip in a river on the way.

    Cruise off the coast of Tahiti without a care in the world, eventually anchoring for a refreshing swim in the surrounding lagoon.


    After a short walk from the pier, you will embark a sleek, 43-foot catamaran for an exhilarating and immensely scenic cruise through the crystal-clear waters off Papeete. The catamaran is exceptionally comfortable as it features a spacious open deck and a shaded lounge for those guests who prefer to relax under cover.


    Sailing affords you a unique perspective of Tahiti’s gorgeous northern shore and Papeete’s distinct skyline. It’s easy to relax on board as the catamaran zips through the open waters, presenting ever-changing tropical views. In time, the captain will anchor the catamaran in the lagoon that almost completely surrounds Tahiti.


    Upon arriving in the lagoon, you will have the option of remaining on board and simply relaxing at your leisure or take a refreshing swim.


    During your sailing adventure you might spot playful bottlenose dolphins and endangered green sea turtles in the surrounding waters.

    Enjoy the natural beauty of the island’s west coast and cultural attractions such as an ancient open-air temple, Vaipahi Gardens and the lush and peaceful surroundings of a cave linked to Captain Cook.


    Settle in for a leisurely drive down Tahiti’s west coast along a highway that hugs the picturesque shoreline. Being the driest part of the island, this area features a wonderfully rugged landscape with one amazing view after another.


    In time, you will arrive at Vaipahi Gardens, a tropical paradise of exotic vegetation and serene ponds. The word vaipahi means splashing water, a reference to the garden’s gently cascading waterfalls. While walking along the trails, you may see lotuses in bloom and 100-year-old Tahitian chestnut trees.


    Then, it’s on to Marae Arahurahu, one of the completely restored ancient temple or marae in Polynesia. Meticulously maintained, this sacred site was once used for religious rituals, royal ceremonies and celebrations after military victories. The park-like setting is dotted with elevated altars, stone tiki figures, and curious red sculptures that represent the ancestors of influential local families. According to legend, the spirit of an ancient hero lingers here.


    You will make a refreshing stop at the Maraa Grottoes. Enjoy the lush vegetation that surrounds its entrance, and as you take the short walk on the trail, you will come across the largest underwater cave in Tahiti. It is said that Paul Gauguin enjoyed the waters here, so those interested in his work will be particularly appreciative of the natural features and atmosphere that inspired his later pieces.

    Set Sail on the beautiful 65-foot Maxi catamaran OHANA down the West coast of Tahiti. Feel the sea spray on your face as the boat slices along the barrier reef while your experienced Captain and crew watch for the spinner dolphins that are frequently seen in the area.


    As you reach the south shores of Taapuna's passage, you’ll have the opportunity to perhaps sight both local and international surfers riding their surfboards as this area is renowned for its waves. Soon, you will drop anchor in the clear waters inside the lagoon where you will have approximately one hour to enjoy a fresh dip in the water or do some snorkeling. Masks and snorkels will be provided for your exploration.


    The OHANA is the largest and fastest catamaran of its class sailing the waters of Tahiti. It offers plenty of shaded seating under the canopy and sun seekers may relax on the two large nets located in the bow. Following your time in the water, it’s time to kick back, unwind and enjoy a refreshment while sailing through turquoise waters back to the pier.
