Sail the Society Islands

The term "French Polynesia" refers to five archipelagos spread over an expanse of the South Pacific approximately the size of Western Europe. The region includes the Marquesas, the Tuamotus, the Society Islands, the Australs and the Gambiers. Each of these archipelagos has its own culture, ethnicity and climate, and we have chosen the Society Islands for your South Pacific dream vacation.

In the Tahiti Tourism 5 Year Plan (published in October 2022) the Islands of Tahiti state their aim to become a leading destination for “Slow Tourism”, with an approach that values quality over quantity by promoting a tourism which is respective of the environment and its hosts; one that provides an experience which is both inclusive and authentic.

The authorities in French Polynesia have therefore begun to make some restrictions on tourist activities at certain sites, and we see this as an extremely positive move to protect the habitat, the wildlife and the quality of life in these beautiful islands. None of the restrictions should make any impact on your enjoyment of the exquisite Polynesian archipelagos.

Please be warned that if you travelled with TradeWinds in French Polynesia in the past, our itineraries have had to be modified and there are sites which we previously visited which we will no longer be able to access. However, we have of course found alternative areas which will be amazing to discover on your future cruises.

The Society Islands we will visit are Raiatea, Taha'a and Bora Bora. Depending on the weather, guests’ preferences, and the time of year we will do a combination of the following activities during your week onboard.


  • A professional Captain and Chef team on a 7-night all-inclusive cruise
  • All taxes and cruising permits
  • All meals and beverages served onboard
  • Well stocked open bar service and wine-list
  • Water sports activities including snorkel equipment, 2-person kayak, stand up paddle board

  • Travel to and from the embarkation point
  • Two evening meals when guests dine ashore
  • Due to government restrictions, scuba diving for certified divers is outsourced at this location. Please see the activities section for more details
  • Crew gratuities
