Escape to Tahiti on a Yacht with Windstar Cruises
DISCOVER TAHITI IN PRIVATE YACHT STYLE
With fewer than 342 guests, a Windstar yacht is large enough to pamper and indulge, yet small enough to anchor in secluded coves and legendary harbors. Our clients will enjoy service and surroundings that are warm and welcoming on a cruise to the Greek Isles or Tahiti, complete with Virtuoso Voyages benefits.
Windstar’s 148-guest Wind Spirit features wide teak decks and billowing white sails that are tailor-made for cruising Tahiti’s islands. On board you will glide gracefully through the shallow waters teeming with schools of tropical fish as they island hop to Moorea, Bora Bora, Tahaa and more.
You will anchor in shallow lagoons unreachable by large cruise ships where you can access to the Watersports Platform featuring complimentary kayaks and paddleboard right from the stern of the yacht. Then may want to snorkel in crystal clear waters with complimentary snorkeling equipment for the duration of your cruise.
Spend your days snorkeling and discovering Polynesian culture both on board and off. Windstar brings Tahitian dancers on board, teaching you how to create fragrant leis, and serve authentic Polynesian cuisine. Lay under the palms on a deserted Tahitian motu, watching the fire dancers light up the night during Windstar’s complimentary Bora Bora Celebration.
With Windstar, guests discover a paradise that’s 180 degrees from ordinary.
