Our gay group trip around French Polynesia gives you a mix of old and new, showing you multiple sides of these gorgeous islands. You’ll be sailing on the Wind Spirit, a four-deck ship with 145 gay travellers.
On this trip, we’ll be focusing on the Society Islands which include French Polynesia’s most famous islands, Tahiti and Bora Bora. While enjoying on the luxuries you could possibly desire on the ship, you’ll be venturing into the surrounding landscapes and exploring rainforests, volcano peaks and unwinding on perfect beaches. You’ll see fire dancers on a private motu, walk through vanilla fields, harvest Tahitian black pearls and feed blue-eyed eels.

Group Trip Breakdown
Day 1: Papeete, Tahiti
The tropical paradise of French Polynesia is one of the great bucket list destinations. Having legalised gay marriage in 2013, there’s never been a better time for gay travellers to visit Tahiti, Bora Bora and the surrounding islands.
You can see Moorea from Papeete Harbor. It’s a great place to begin a French Polynesian island-hopping adventure.
Day 2: Moorea
One of the most gorgeous island landscapes in the world, the island of Moorea is a sight to behold, especially when the sun is setting.
The bustling downtown market of Le Marche and delicious food trucks at Vai’ete Square are the heart of the islands lively town. Combined with the jagged green peaks of volcanoes, blue lagoons bedded by white sand and tiny offshore islets, Moorea is a gorgeous mix of French Polynesian culture and natural wonder.
Day 3: Raiatea
Perhaps the most traditional island we’ll be visiting, the island of Raiatea is a secluded paradise.
The locals fish, raise livestock and grow crops such as watermelon, vanilla bean and copra. The island also produces some of the finest black pearls in the Pacific – a testament to the purity of the water, which you’ll have more than enough time to relax in and around. The lifestyle on this island has remained unchanged for many centuries.
Day 4: Tahaa
Next, we move onto the private island of Tahaa, where we’ll lounge between palm trees on the stunning white-sand beaches.
You can enjoy the day relaxing, with drinks and a barbecue lunch awaiting you, or, you can dive right in. Swimming, snorkelling or water-sporting your way through the crystal blue waters of Tahaa. You can also explore the sacred sights and the vanilla plantations.
Day 5 - 6: Bora Bora
Bora Bora is a major international hot-spot, home to luxury resorts and the famous Bora Bora Yacht Club. For our time here, we’ll explore the surrounding tiny islets, called “motu”, the small, secluded, island paradises that offer privacy, beauty and relaxation.
You will spend the evening in this coconut tree-laden Paradise, enjoying the beautiful lagoons and beaches, discover local cuisine and even enjoying a fire dancer show. The permanent population of Bora Bora is just 8,800.
Day 7: Huahine
For our final day, we’ll get a glimpse of old-school Polynesia. Mostly unchanged by the modern world, Huahine is an island of only eight small villages scattered across the island. Huahine is a fertile land, bursting with lush vegetation and bountiful harvests of vanilla, melons and bananas.
Spend your last day soaking up the crystal clear lagoons, dramatic bays and white sand beaches one last time in Huahine.
Day 8: Papeete
On our final day we’ll return to Papeete for your evening return flight, unless you can’t get enough and extend your stay!
