Port of Call - Papeete

Located on the famous island of Tahiti, Papeete is the capital of the French Polynesia and is a unique city like no other in the world. It acts as the perfect base for exploring everything this incredible island has to offer.

The island of Tahiti is a true paradise, offering rugged scenery and a contrast of some of the best things about Mother Nature.
