Of its five archipelagos, each with its own character and charm, the Society Islands are the best known for Moorea and Bora Bora. The Society Islands are a group of high islands, lush and tropical, circled by turquoise coral reefs and lucid lagoons. The most popular charter itinerary is between Huahine and Bora Bora.
In total contrast are The Tuamotu Islands, which are a collection of low atolls. Each island encircles its own lagoon with a ring of coral and beneath the clear waters are spectacular underwater gardens and a myriad of marine life.
The French Polynesian islands enjoy a year round tropical climate, boasting water temperatures two degrees warmer than the air. On land and in the sea, there is a plethora of natural wonders to enchant visitors and welcoming locals that embody the Polynesian and French influences in a beautiful blend of culture and cuisine.
Authors rhapsodise about the 118 islands that are cast over the crystalline sea like jewels, a cruising region almost the size of continental Europe and you too can experience the vacation of your dreams on a luxury charter yacht.
THE MOTOR YACHT:
You can experience all the tropical splendour that Tahiti has to offer on a charter aboard COSMOS, a luxuriously appointed 32.5m (107ft) Lloyd Ships-built motor yacht. Accommodating up to eight charter guests in luxury, COSMOS was recently refitted to keep pace with technology and the exigent expectation of guests from around the globe.
From the instant you step on board, COSMOS envelops you. Any charter boat can transport you, but COSMOS, led by Captain Eddie and his "can do" Crew, introduces you to explore far-flung reaches where nobody goes. Instead of passing a volcanic atoll, you can dive there if you so wish. You won't just observe passing whales, you can swim with them.
Inside, COSMOS is warm and capacious, with a full 7m beam from port to starboard. Accommodation for up to eight charter guests is in four staterooms; one master king, one twin that converts to a queen, and two twin staterooms, each with a double and a single bed.
And while she boasts state of the art entertainment system with 60" Plasma screen and over 1000 movies, charter guests are mostly attracted to COSMOS' generous flybridge, basking on a sun lounge, island spotting, enjoying a sunset cocktail, and dining under the stars.
COSMOS' garage contains all the gear for a diversity of water sports, from kayaking to waterskiing behind the 5.7m BRIG tender with 115hp engine. There are jetskis, knee and wake boards, as well as diving gear for exploring the pristine Tahitian waters.
This is the place that so enchanted and beguiled artist Paul Gaugin, the backdrop for so many classic films and easily the most picturesque cruising ground in the world.
Take this unique opportunity to charter COSMOS in Tahiti, and explore the magical islands of Huahine, Raiatea, Taha'a and Bora Bora or if you're a diving enthusiast the Tuamotu atolls.
The locals and Crew of COSMOS are eager to welcome you with a heart-felt "manuia" to their glorious slice of heaven.
