Earlier this month we returned to Tahiti for the first time in more than 10 years. During the 7-day voyage, we snorkeled, dove, sun bathed, ate, drank, danced, and sailed our way through the stunning Polynesian Islands. Below, our guests and crew shared their photos. Scroll down to experience the fun and beauty of Wind Spirit’s return voyage through Tahiti.

The voyage started in Papeete, where local artists welcomed Wind Spirit to Tahiti with a vibrant performance that showcased traditional Tahitian dancing and singing.

From Papeete, Wind Spirit sailed to Moorea for the night before heading on to Tahaa for a day of kayaking, snorkeling, and sun bathing in the island’s pristine waters and white sand beaches. After working up an appetite, guests took a mid-day break for a beach-side barbecue hosted by Windstar.

Wind Spirit continued on to Raiatea for another overnight then headed to Bora Bora, the most romantic island in the world, and also the location of our signature Private Event. As part of the exclusive event, guests spent an evening on a private motu where they feasted on local Tahitian cuisine that included a dinner of suckled pig slow roasted in a traditional underground fire pit. A performance by fire dancers and local musicians topped off the evening.
