Papeete to Papeete
Go beyond a typical Tahiti cruise during this island odyssey throughout French Polynesia and the remote Marquesas Islands. Follow in the creative footsteps of Symbolist artist Paul Gauguin as you explore his former home on Hiva Oa, then run your fingers along the hand-hewn surfaces of the largest Tiki sculptures found anywhere in the Pacific. Journey to Fakarava’s lagoon, a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve teeming with seabirds and vibrant tropical fish. Admire colorful coral gardens from your glass-bottom boat near Tiputa on Rangiroa. Swim with playful manta rays and docile black-tipped reef sharks in Bora Bora’s Blue Lagoon prior to a romantic starlit overnight port stay. Trek along Moorea’s rolling Opunohu Valley trail past fruit plantations and through an exotic hardwood forest on your way to majestic views of Mount Mouaroa, Mount Rotu and Mount Tohiea—three of the highest summits in the Society Islands.

VIEW THE JOURNEY
Day 1: Papeete
Relax on sunny beaches, sample Tahitian fare, and take in the effervescent spirit of the city. But whatever you do, save time — and luggage space — for shopping. Black pearls and colorful crafts fill the market and local treasures are so plentiful you’ll have trouble making your choices but you won't be bothered with large crowds and big tour groups because French Tahiti is only accessible to small ships like ours.
VIEW THE JOURNEY
Day 3: Fakarava
Here is a rare opportunity to experience one of earth’s most beautiful – and most rare – places.  Fakarava, a place so stunning, an ecosystem so diverse it has been named a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. This diver’s paradise welcomes you to a world of magnificent cauliflower coral, sleek grey sharks, and neon schools of tropical fish. This “Island of Dreams” is home to rare species of nesting birds and rare marine life living in tranquil harmony.
VIEW THE JOURNEY
Day 5: Omoa, Fatu Hiva, Marquesas
Known as the Island of Tapa, a long-forgotten art elsewhere, Fatu Hiva, with its 650 inhabitants, has a remarkable coastline full of rich vegetation. The locals here live mainly on fishing, coprah producing and growing nono, a fruit with medicinal virtues. Meet the local artists and learn about their time-honored traditions
 
VIEW THE JOURNEY
Day 6: Atuona, Hiva Oa, Marquesas
The final home and resting place of painter Paul Gauguin and singer Jacques Brel, Hiva Oa is watched over by many large stone tiki statues and boasts the tallest peak in the Marquesas, Mount Temetiu at 3,980 feet. Relax on black-sand beaches or try the diving or snorkeling, said to be among the best or find the Tehueto Petroglyphs.
VIEW THE JOURNEY
Day 7: Taiohae, Nuku Hiva, Marquesas
The second largest island in French Polynesia, this remote island is full of natural beauty in is deep bays, lush valleys, rocky peaks and narrow cliffside roads where you might come upon wild ponies. Giant banyan trees are found around ancient marae temples and ceremonial stone platforms as well as tiki statues outside huts. Find the 40-foot-tall Tiki Tuhiva sitting atop Mount Muake. Another interest is Tohua Koueva Archaeological Site with detailed restoration of ancient Marquesan life.

Day 9: Rangiroa
Some people call this place heaven. You will call it perfect. The huge lagoon surrounded by beautiful coral and filled with colorful fish, rays, and dolphin is a diver’s dream.

We will spend the day on a private island complete with swaying palm trees and white-sand beaches. Swim, snorkel and enjoy a variety of water sports in the crystal-clear waters.

Day 12: Bora Bora
Our stay here allows plenty of time to capture the beauty in photographs — and you’ll want plenty. These stunning waters will show a different kaleidoscope of blue in each frame. You’ll have lots of options for exploration, whether you prefer the access provided by a 4-by-4, or the thrill of riding in the open air. Stretch out on stunning white-sand beaches, dive and swim in brightly colored seas, or sail among the tiny islands and lagoons.

A Complimentary Windstar Destination Discovery Event

Bora Bora is surrounded by a number of tiny islets called “motu” – small, pristine, secluded paradises that offer privacy, beauty and relaxing ambiance. You will spend the evening on one of these perfect Polynesian oases accompanied only by other Windstar guests. As has long been the tradition in Tahiti, you will be welcomed to the motu with a fragrant flower lei.

Your private feast on the beach promises to be extraordinary. The menu has been carefully selected by Windstar’s executive chef and is sure to please and tantalize your palate.

When your meal is complete and the stars begin to shine, the highlight of this enchanted evening will begin. Fire dancing has long been deeply embedded in the Polynesian culture as a way to send messages to the gods. Your fire dancing experts will be wearing traditional loincloths and will dazzle you with high-speed acrobatic moves, throwing flames so hot you’ll feel the warmth 10 feet away.

Please note: This Destination Discovery Event has been scheduled in a way that will allow you to book and experience another shore excursion on the same day and you will not miss anything.
