Day 1: Check-in
At your arrival you will be welcomed on board and, once your luggage has been arranged, lunch will be served, and you will eat with an exceptional panoramic view. We will then sail to the Reef Islands, an atoll composed of 16 islets, crossing the lagoon. Once at your destination we will stay anchored for the rest of the day: you will then have the opportunity to dive into the crystal clear waters that surround you, to snorkel, relax or take a kayak tour in the turquoise lagoon.
Early in the morning we will sail for about 2 hours to the Blue Lagoon, characterized as the name says by pristine turquoise waters and fine white sand. At your destination, you will have the opportunity to discover this characteristic place that well represents the essence of Rangiroa, snorkel and then visit The Bird Island, the northernmost of the archipelago and which owes its name to its rich birdlife. After lunch we will sail to the village of Avatoru and spend the night at anchor.
In the morning we will sail to the Tikehau atoll, (about 5 hours of navigation) characterized by pink sand and where you can live an experience of total contact with the nature that surrounds you. Upon arrival, expected in the late morning, you will have the opportunity to relax surrounded by a unique landscape of pink sand and transparent waters. After lunch, in the afternoon, we will explore the surrounding lagoon, stopping occasionally to snorkel in natural coral gardens, swim, or for the more sporty practice water sports such as kayaking.
After breakfast we will sail to the center of the lagoon, where you can swim with the giant manta rays, beautiful fishes that populate the waters of Polynesia. After lunch, which will be consumed on board, you can visit the village of Tuherahera and once on board we will sail briefly to the Tikehau pass, where we will dine at anchor. From there the catamaran will then sail around 22:00 to embark on a night navigation under the southern starry sky to Makatea, island of limestone nature.
We will arrive in Makatea early in the morning, and from now on the watchword of the day will be relaxation. In Makatea, you can enjoy some of the favorite activities: snorkeling, walking along the reef, sunbathe or explore the peculiar geography of the island, which stands out from the others that make up the archipelago for its calcareous nature, and for the presence on its territory of large deposits of phosphate. We'll spend the night moored in the harbor.
If yesterday was a day of relaxation, today will be dedicated instead to sport. You can choose between various activities such as snorkeling, kayaking, SUP. Furthermore if you wish you will have the opportunity to venture out on a hike with a jeep 4X4 accompanied by a local guide to visit the most internal part of the island, discovering the ancient mines of phosphate, and the caves in the area. After the hike you can stop and have lunch in a local restaurant. The return on board is scheduled for 15: 00. We will have dinner in the bay and, around midnight, we will sail to Rangiroa.
On the seventh day we will arrive in Rangiroa in the morning and make a short stop at Tiputa village, where you can choose to have a tasty barbecue in a private motu. The afternoon will be dedicated to snorkeling at the Aquarium and the descent of the Tiputa pass, and then you can spend the remaining hours of the day practicing water sports or simply relaxing to enjoy the last moments in this earthly paradise. Last night on board.
