Sailing cruises in Polynesia aboard deluxe catamaran-type boats, with itineraries including Tahiti, the Leeward Archipelago, Bora Bora and the Tuamotu.

Sail in comfort aboard an exceptionally stable 60 ft. catamaran with almost 1,400 sq. ft. of usable space. Each vessel is engineered for speed, exceptional stability and unparalleled comfort, with four air-conditioned cabins, private bathrooms, a vast salon with panoramic views, and a spacious deck. All are equipped with dinghies, windsurfs, snorkeling and fishing gear, ocean kayaks, a library, and games. An experienced crew takes you (never more than eight passengers per yacht!) on a carefree sail that will send you home with memories to last a lifetime.

"Archipels Croisières" operates a fleet of four identical sail catamarans: MATA FENUA, TEREHAU, FANOTEA and one not yet baptised.

The accommodation offers both space and refinement: A large panoramic, well ventilated living room/lounge includes a dining area, lounge, bar and navigation area. Four self-contained, air-conditioned passenger cabins with bathroom are designed for eight passengers.
The warm feeling created by the woodwork and leatherwork as well as a carefully done decoration add to the pleasure of being aboard.

On the deck, there are 130 square meters of useful surface (a large cockpit) outside the dining area sheltered from the sun (two large "trampoline / sunbathing areas" at the front of the boat), with deck cushions and mattresses - each hull having transom steps for easy access to/from the water.

"The first service aboard a French vessel should always be a refined cuisine dish"
It's ready around 7:30 a.m. An abundance of wonderful morning dishes are ideal for the day's start. From the outside cockpit table, with all the lagoon light blue around, there's a choice of delicious pancakes or fresh fruit salad to be appreciated, or a simpler strong cup of coffee just after a refreshing morning swim in the lagoon.
It should not cut the day. It is a mix of fresh salads, "tarte" pies and desserts. Sometimes, according to the excursion program, a good picnic is organized ashore.
Is the highlight of the day. After the sunset cocktails, it is ready around 7:30 p.m. and boosts a fusion of French, Italian, Tahitian and exotic cusines.
Included in the rate are the breakfast's fruit juices, good wine during meals, and always at hand is cold, natural "citronade." Soft drinks, a good variety of fine wines and alcohols or cocktails are available "à la carte." These will be charged to the passenger at the end of the cruise.
Rooms & Housekeeping
Cabins and bathrooms are perfectly cleaned and prepared daily. Sheets are regularly changed every three days.
General accommodation's perfect cleanliness is one of our standards.
Our crew members can be your guides or help for any kind of nautical activitiy included in the cruise (snorkelling, fishing, kayaking, windsurfing, lagoon & reef discovery by dinghie...). They will give the passengers a lot of precious information on how to learn about the fragile coral ecosystem and to protect it.
Inland Activities
Inside the islands and/or during excursions you will be guided by one of the crew's members or by specialized guides.

You will be welcomed from the embarkment point at the airport to the boat, and bid farewell at the disembarkment point after the cruise, carrying with you fond memories of your time in Paradise.
