French Polynesia Cruise Day 5, Tahaa

Day Five - May 21, 2009


Taha'a -- We did a 4x4 tour of this island as well.  We drove around the island and through the mountains, visited a vanilla farm and a pearl farm.  The interior of the island was beautiful and we saw some nice vistas.  At the best viewpoint our guides sang and served us fruit and juice.

After the tour we went back to the boat to quickly change for the beach-barbeque on the motu. It was beautiful! The beach and water were gorgeous. The water was crystal clear. We did a little snorkeling and there was a lot to see, but unfortunately the current was very strong so I didn’t stay in too long. We also enjoyed the beach-barbeque lunch and the Polynesian show. We walked around the whole island in about 5 minutes.

Before setting sail I went on the photo tender, which circled the boat for about 20 minutes so we could get pictures with the sails up.  I was so happy to have this opportunity.

This night was pirate night.  Unfortunately my husband and I did not bring anything for dressing up, but it was fun to see the crew and some passengers all decked out.  I wish I had brought my camera with me to dinner that night!
