Marquesas, Tuamotus, Tahiti
31 March 2020 – 26 April 2020
On this leg we spend 26 days cruising around some of the most spectacular anchorages. First, we begin with exploring the nature’s paradise that is the Marquesas: waterfalls, hikes through dense forest, horse-back riding, black sand beaches and 4×4 jeep expedition tours through the rugged landscape.
We will then cruise to the visually striking Tuamotus that are made up of 77 atolls – which are narrow coral rings encircling a pristine turquoise lagoon. This unique and stunning archipelago extends over an immense stretch of ocean between the Marquesas and the Society Islands. The best part is that most of the places we will visit are only accessible by boat.
This pristine marine environment offers incomparable opportunities to experience a vast diversity of marine life including sharks, dolphins, turtles, rays and a range of tropical fish. Not forgetting that you can also fill your days with other activities such as kiteboarding, kayaking and paddle boarding, or even visiting the local black pearl farms scattered throughout the lagoons.
The final port is the vibrant capital city of Papeete in Tahiti, where we meet up with the WARC fleet again and readjust to being back in civilisation.
