Mangareva (PF) - Papeete (PF)

08 July - 22 July 2024

DARWIN200 Global Voyage: Leg 18. During this voyage leg you will explore the islands of western French Polynesia, stopping in locations where few tourists are able to visit (as weather and circumstances allow). Visit remote villages, snorkel over pristine coral reefs and land on coconut palm fringed beaches. The aim of this voyage is to sail to remote atolls and coral islands before arriving at Papeete, on the island of Tahiti in French Polynesia. Flights from Tahiti connect to Mangareva, allowing easy transit to the start point of this voyage leg.
There is no more Covid-19 protocol on board, but the participants must make sure that they comply with the rules of the countries visited during the Journeys.
