French Polynesia - our advices for your cruise


French Polynesia consists in five archipelagos disseminated in a giant maritime space. That' a reason to admire every facet of this bright beauty land, from mountainous islands of Societé, transparent lagoons surrounded by islets with white sands in Tuamotu and Marquises, to the unknown archipelagos in the Australes and the Gambier.
 
There's nothing more magic than visit all these islands, islets and atolls on a boat, sailing its furiously blue waters, and throw from a sailboat to discover the aquatic wildlife.
 
Our rental sailboats bases in Raiatea and Rangiroa offers you a wide selection of boats and catamarans that will let you discover these magnificent places.

Attention to cuts with coral, painful and difficult to heal, to black flies (nono) in the Marquises, and to jellyfishes.
In the lagoon, be careful with stone-fishes, bay fishes and sea urchins.
