Chartering In Tahiti . . .
In a reply a gent sent me his link which I thought was good...
My trip was as follows:
Day 1 Arrival - board out our Lagoon 380
"Afaro" from Tahiti
Yacht Charters and sail to Farroa Bay - Kayaked up the river. It was awesome. Took a moring on the abandoned Sunsail mooring
field. Make sure the mooring
is good thay did not look maintained.
Day 2 Set sail out the nearby pass to Huahine. We went down to the southern tip Avea Bay - and stayed for 2 nights Awesome. You can stop at an anchorage half way down the west side or berth near the main town if time does not permit
. Going all the way to Avea (arrived at 14:00 left Farroa at 8:00) was great for us . Allowed us to expolre the island and stay put for a bit.
Day 3 Avea
Day 4 Set sail for Tahaa (7:15) Arrived near Mahaea on the East side of Tahaa at 13:30. Anchored in a large sandy area. Great holding but quite a dingy ride to shore. We did not explore the island which I regret. I guess I have good reason to go back. We did a lot of snorkeling near the motos instead- Awesome!
Day 5 Set Sail to Bora-Bora (7:00) this is a trek. You will probably need to motor
sail arround a good part of Tahaa. We had a great sail to the island once we exited the pass on the west side od Tahaa. Arrived in the pass at 13:30. BB Yacht club was still being fixed from storm damage and no morings were available. We moored outside Bloody Mary's. The place while touristy is definitely worth the trip.
Day 6 Went to the main town of Viatape by Dink, and explored the town a bit (small even for the main town). Stayed at BM mooring field.
Day 7 Sailed to the East side of bora and anchored near the St. Regus. Great view of BB!!! We snorkeled near the carnal marker due West of the Hotel
. Saw a school
of 14 Eagle Rays and caught it on Video while free diving!
Day 8 Sailed back to Raitea left at 8:00 in port by 13:00.
I had such an surreal experience there I have not scratched the surface of it, but tried to give you an outline of the float plan. If you have any question let me know. Have an awesome Trip!
