We posted a picture a while back of our last Tahiti Adventure.  The response from the fine folks that keep joining our Adventures was unanimous – ‘That’s where we are going next’.  Why not, let’s go sail some of the most exotic islands on the planet …

“Paradise means different things to different people. When I hear the word paradise, French Polynesia is what I think of.  The islands have all of the ingredients: warm clear air and water, majestic land, exotic natives, and an ancient sailing culture. For me paradise is a temperate place. A place where climate and culture require minimal clothing. Warm also describes the people. As you treat them well you receive the same. Of course, paradise should have a history of welcoming explorers who have crossed oceans to discover it.

It might also include white sand islets and live coral reefs to provide for and entertain us. And the island in the center should be jagged and dramatic. No rolling hills here, that’s too easy. The land in paradise is steep and challenging, a breeding ground for waterfalls and adventure …”   The rest of Captain Woody’s article, Click Here!

And our normal 7 day cruise would not cut it here, we are doing a rare 10 day trip so we can include all of our favorite islands.  Learn to handle ocean boats or simply come to sail paradise.
