This is an intimate voyage through French Polynesia's Leeward Islands. With only 24 fellow passengers we share an experience outside the usual tourist clichés, where your senses are loaded with colour, emotion and simple pleasures. Sample the romance of dinner under the stars, the discovery of stunning beauty whilst paddling a kayak on the lagoon, swimming with turtles, wander exquisite beaches or simply relax on deck while enjoying cocktails as the tropical sun slowly merges with the sea ... welcome to paradise.

Your cruise includes: Helicopter scenic transfer between Bora Bora airport and 'Island Passage', Beer, wine, spirits, soft drink, juice, bottled water, tea and espresso coffee, Use of kayaks, paddle boards, tenders, snorkel and fish equipment carried onboard.

Highlights


• Discover Huahine, it is known as the garden island due to an abundance of lush tropical foliage. It is also extremely picturesque with steep mountains descending into protected bays of azure blue and emerald green waters.

• Visit a vanilla plantation, see the Maeva Marae archaeological site, famous blue eyed eels and unique stone fish traps still in use by locals.

• Swim, kayak, paddleboard and snorkel.

• Enjoy BBQ dinner and local show.

We suggest you take the 1:30pm flight from Papeete to Bora Bora. After landing we have scenic helicopter transfers to the ship that commence from Bora Bora airport from 3:30pm. Take time to explore your onboard home for the next week, meet fellow guests and our fabulous crew. A light snack is served on deck as we move to the lagoon for the evening. After dinner onboard, you are invited to Captain's cocktails with stunning mountains as a backdrop. We remain inside the lagoon for a comfortable sleep at anchor.
After a leisurely breakfast we cruise across the Bora Bora lagoon (don't worry- we'll be back) and depart on a 3-hour crossing to the island pair of Taha'a and Raiatea. Lunch is served on entering the lagoon at Herepiti Bay on the Southwestern side of Taha'a. We have a guided tour of a local pearl farm where you may dive for your own pearls. Later this afternoon we dock alongside at Uturoa where an evening stroll ashore is on offer.
After breakfast you have time to visit the local shops and the shell market before we depart for the Faaroa River tour. Prepare to be entertained as we show off the eastern lagoon on Raiatea and wind up the tiny Faaroa River, Tahiti's only "navigable river". Return to the ship by mid afternoon and try some trolling while we cruise to Teapaa Bay on Huahine. Huahine is known as the garden island due to an abundance of lush tropical foliage. It is also extremely picturesque with steep mountains descending into protected bays of azure blue and emerald green waters.
After a tropical breakfast on deck we spend the morning swimming or exploring at Teapaa Beach. Lunch is served as we move to Fare and the afternoon is filled with snorkeling, paddle boarding, kayaking and the chance for an swim in these beautiful waters. This evening we are entertained with a cultural show and Tahitian dancing.
We depart Huahine around 9am for the 20-mile passage to Taha'a eastern reef and you are welcome to try your hand at fishing on the way. After lunch we visit a local vanilla plantation before we circumnavigate the northern shores of this amazing region. We have stunning sunset views of magical Bora Bora in the distance before dinner is served on the aft deck.
Motu's everywhere, turquoise water- this is the place to snorkel the amazing coral gardens or have one of the crew to help you explore by tender. No organised tours here- just unbelievable unspoilt beauty. Today could be a sunscreen and Hinano Tahitian beer day! The setting is special with the reef in the foreground and the towering peaks of Bora Bora in the distance. After a 3-hour journey we enter the Bora Bora lagoon. You are welcome to come up to the bridge , as we make our way through the entrance in the reef. Once we are anchored, join the Captain for happy hour cocktails at Bloody Mary's; an experience of a lifetime. Sand floors and a superstar history that stretches back 30 years.
After breakfast we visit Motu Tapu for our professionally guided ray and shark experience; standing in waist deep water and meeting these amazing friends. After lunch we are at Toopu Islands for swimming, beachcombing, snorkelling and sunbathing. Tonight is our farewell dinner where the crew join us for a final evening onboard.
Breakfast is served on deck before the tenders transfer you to Vaitape ferry terminal by 9:30am. From here you may catch the ferry to Bora Bora airport to arrive in time for the 11:25am flight to Papeete. We strongly suggest this flight as many of the Bora Bora activities are closed on Sunday. We do hope that you have enjoyed your time onboard with us. Ia Orana, we hope to see you again.
Please note the itinerary is subject to change due to operational reasons, weather and sea conditions solely at Captains discretion.

Island Passage

Vessel Type:  Luxury Catamaran

Length:  42 metres

Passenger Capacity:  22

Built:  2007

If you have traveled with the big ship cruise lines in the past, it's time to start rethinking everything you thought you knew about cruising. Furthermore if you have been avoiding cruising because you imagined it would be like traveling in a shopping mall, it's time to think again. We offer something else altogether.

The ‘Island Passage’ is our beautifully appointed small ship. Her workboat exterior camouflages a stunning interior. Weighing in at almost 500 tonnes, she’s equipped to travel to inaccessible areas while delivering the highest level of passenger comfort. On board you’ll find 10 spacious en-suite cabins, a large dining room and saloon lounge, a library and generous outdoor living spaces. In the galley, our chef works with the freshest local ingredients and delicacies to create memorable meals that reflect the day’s adventures.

For entertainment and exploration, Island Passage carries purpose-built landing craft, three large tenders, sea kayaks, a five-seat helicopter, fish and snorkel equipment. Never a dull moment, although lazing in a deckchair is always an acceptable option. During each journey, our eight-person crew is on hand to share their knowledge of the ocean and local landscapes.

Our expedition boats are designed to provide fast and efficient transport to and from the 'Island Passage' and are well suited for exploring the local bays, islands, and rivers that are right on your doorstep. All boats are manned with guides, two-way radios and safety equipment for your peace of mind.

Our fishing has no rigid daily schedule. Different areas will be covered according to what the Captain and guides believe will be best in that specific day or week. Several levels are available during the cruises to suit the novice to the more experienced angler.

Onboard Luxury
When the ship was designed, the instructions were to provide a luxurious layout, uncrowded and comfortable for a maximum of 24 guests. This has been well achieved. You will encounter the spacious saloon and dining area on the promenade deck, a large aft teak deck with steamers chairs and ease of access to the tenders, oversized cabins and ensuites, wide side teak decks for strolling the ship and an overwhelming feeling of being onboard a small private yacht.

The Suites
The ‘Island Passage’ is perfect for a leisurely break from a hectic lifestyle. We only have accommodation onboard for 24 passengers. The ten spacious individually designed cabins, with rich timber panelling and New Zealand Kauri furniture, fitted with DVD, audio and TV, and are all air-conditioned. Most with doors opening on to the outer deck, each cabin has its own private ensuite. Our suites are amongst the largest for any ship of it's size.

Expedition Cabins
Located on the main deck, our Expedition cabins give you a choice of a queen-size bed or two singles. Suites with single beds have a pullman berth for a third guest. Individual air conditioning, TV, DVD/CD, movies. Sea view from the portholes.

Staterooms
On the same level as the saloon, bar and dining room, the Staterooms have large picture windows and doors opening directly onto the promenade deck. Each cabin has individual air-conditioning, TV, DVD/CD, movies, writing desk and either queen or twin single beds.

Bridge Deck Suites
Offering the best views on the ship, the two Bridge Deck Suites open directly onto the teak bridge deck. Each cabin is individually air-conditioned with SKY TV, DVD/CD, movies on demand, writing desk, easy chair, super king bed and extra-large bathroom.
