Raiatea is the second largest of the Society Islands, behind Tahiti, and is the administrative center of the region. Famous for its vanilla plantations, it is an excellent place to explore on-land and immerse yourself in local culture.
Taha'a is an underwater paradise, featuring coral gardens unlike anything you've ever laid eyes on. On the northwest side of the island, there is a narrow, shallow channel with a gentle current that will carry you effortlessly across the pristine reef below, which is home to thousands of tropical fish. When you are done gliding through this natural wonder, simply walk back to the beginning to enjoy it over and over again!
Bora Bora is the most well-known Society Island, with its iconic bungalows hovering above the sea and majestic views of Mt. Otemanu clearly visible for miles in any direction. Upon mooring in Point Raititi, you can enjoy swimming in the crystal-clear waters with manta rays, stingrays, and friendly reef sharks. Plus, plan to visit a local pearl farm, where you can dive for a hand-picked oyster shell and take home a precious black pearl of your own.
Huahine is located about 20 miles east of Raiatea. Here, natural beauty reigns supreme, as the island of Huahine is less populated and less-traveled than its Polynesian neighbors. It is a fantastic stop for any Tahiti sailing itinerary with fabulous snorkeling conditions and secluded anchorages ideal for sun-soaked relaxation.
