Description


Discover the Magic of Tahiti and her islands in 2024 and now 2025! Embark on a LUXURY cruise with Windstar.


Embarking on a journey to Tahiti is a venture into a realm of unparalleled natural beauty, where emerald massifs, sparkling lagoons, and the warm embrace of the islanders have enticed sailors since the days of Captain Cook. Nestled in the heart of the South Pacific, Tahiti is a tropical paradise that beckons with its impossibly clear waters, refracting sunlight in a mesmerizing dance of jade, aquamarine, and turquoise hues against the backdrop of pristine white sand.

While the islands themselves are a spectacle of breathtaking allure, there's an entire world waiting to be explored beyond the shoreline. Picture yourself indulging in the luxurious experience of traveling with Windstar Cruises, where every moment is crafted to perfection. Whether you are drifting along coral reefs during a captivating snorkeling expedition or simply lounging on the deck of a yacht, the enchantment of Tahiti unfolds in myriad ways.

As you set sail towards the remote and less-visited Tuamotus, a whole new chapter of this maritime adventure unfolds. These low-lying atolls, seemingly untouched by time, unveil a spectacle of marine life that is nothing short of a revelation. The drama here unfolds beneath the surface, where canyons, passes, and valleys create a fertile wonderland for an astonishing array of marine residents.

The well-ventilated lagoons of the Tuamotus offer exceptional visibility, allowing you to witness a marine ballet of unprecedented proportions. The blender effect, a natural occurrence in these waters, ensures that the reef residents thrive, creating a harmonious ecosystem. Prepare to be mesmerized as reef sharks, grey sharks, sturgeons, lemon sharks, white tip sharks, perch, barracudas, tunas, manta rays, and dolphins gracefully navigate the underwater terrain. And during certain months, the elusive eagle rays and hammerheads make a stunning appearance, adding an extra layer of excitement to your aquatic escapade.

Fakarava, a jewel in the Tuamotus, holds a special distinction as a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, thanks to its unique and delicate ecosystem. Here, every dive and every exploration reveals the delicate balance of nature, making it a must-visit destination for those seeking a deeper connection with the oceanic wonders.

For those who prefer to stay dry but still yearn to witness the magic below the surface, Windstar Cruises offers a range of experiences. From glass-bottom boat excursions that provide a window into the aquatic world to AquaSafaris that allow you to observe marine life in their natural habitat, and from snorkeling adventures to SCUBA excursions, every option is designed to let you explore this mesmerizing world, even if you choose to keep your feet dry.

In the lap of luxury aboard a Windstar cruise, the journey to Tahiti becomes not just a vacation but a transcendent experience. It's an exploration of nature's wonders, a celebration of marine life, and a journey into the heart of the South Pacific's most enchanting destinations. So, set sail with Windstar Cruises and let the allure of Tahiti unfold before you in a tapestry of luxury, adventure, and natural beauty that will linger in your memories for a lifetime.

Life Onboard your Yacht: A day on board your Windstar ship is a day of choices, all of them good. Perhaps you’ll begin with a relaxing massage in World Spa by Windstar. Or maybe an invigorating workout in the Fitness Center. Even better, why not both? After a sumptuous lunch in Veranda, make a splash from the Watersports Platform off the ship’s stern. Everything you can think of for fun in the water is there — swimming, kayaking, and stand-up paddleboarding. And it’s all complimentary, of course. Sun yourself on deck, take a dip in the whirlpool, then catch up on email or order a cheese plate for your stateroom or suite. After dinner, dance to live music in the Lounge. This is your yacht, so of course you’re welcome on the Bridge, where the Captain and officers are delighted to share charts, routes, and vistas with you.

As you prepare for another amazing Windstar day, enjoy a nightcap anywhere you like — on deck, in the Lounge, or why not let us bring it to your suite or stateroom? Your day ends just as it began, blissfully.
