8 days exploring French Polynesia on a luxury yacht

7 of 8 7/8
Bora Bora in the French Polynesia
Day 7

Raiatea to Bora Bora

(25nm, 2 hours)

Bora Bora is possibly the single most famous island in the world. Romantics from around the globe have laid claim to this icon, where the castle-like Mount Otemanu pierces the sky. Lush tropical slopes and valleys blossom with hibiscus, while palm-covered motu circle the illuminated lagoon. Pora Pora - the ancient name, meaning “first born,” came from legends describing this as the first island to rise when Taaroa, the supreme god, fished it out of the waters after the mythical creation of Havai’i, now known as Raiatea.

See and do: Aqua Safari provides the unique experience of walking underwater wearing a divers helmet and weight belt. Pumps on the boat above feed air to you during the 30-minute ‘walk on the wet side’. A number of tours are also provided by Viator which allow you to see the natural beauty and culture of Bora Bora.

Dine: The popular Maikai Bora Bora Marina and Yacht club offers superb Polynesian cuisine with a twist.

Overnight: At anchor.
