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.

Papeete was once a gathering place where Tahitians came in search of fresh waters. Today it offers an impressive nightlife, fantastic shopping facilities, world-class resorts and vibrant markets, which are particularly popular for those searching for local black pearls.

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