Things to Do on a South Pacific Cruise with Windstar Cruises


Cruising through the South Pacific with Windstar Cruises allows you the amazing opportunity to explore the Tahitian Islands aboard unique, luxurious sail ships. Experience snorkeling in sparking-blue waters, watch for the sun’s phenomenal green flash as it sinks below the horizon during sunset, or enjoy a magnificent, private feast for only Windstar Cruises guests in Bora Bora. Featured below are just a few of our favorite things to do when cruising through the South Pacific with Windstar Cruises:



Windstar Cruises Dolphin Eco Tour
  • Dolphin Eco Tour (Moorea, French Polynesia)
    Learn about the dolphins of Moorea with a team of marine biologists led by Dr. Michael Poole. You are almost guaranteed to spot a variety of these playful mammals among the clear waters of the South Pacific. You’ll leave with a greater appreciation of the region’s ecosystem and the ongoing efforts used to understand and preserve it.




Windstar Cruises Coral Garden Snorkeling
  • Coral Garden Drift Snorkeling (Tahaa, French Polynesia)
    Discover the west coast of Tahaa and the natural beauty of the island by a covered motorized boat. Snorkel on an uninhabited motu (islet) off the coast while your guide will lead you through the gentle current, carrying you to the shallow lagoon. There will be plenty of bright colored fish and an amazing coral garden unique to Polynesia!




Windstar Cruises Active Hike and Guided Tour
  • Active Hike and Guided Tour of Three Coconut Trail (Moorea, French Polynesia)
    See some of the most amazing sights and greenery on a 3.5 mile hike in beautiful Moorea. You'll begin at the pier and meander up to the famous Belvedere Lookout Point where Cook’s Bay and Opunohu Bay can be seen. Follow Three Coconut Trail for a close look at the tropical nature of Tahiti. Along the hike, your guide will show you some of the island’s fresh fruit to sample!




Windstar Cruises Bora Bora
  • Bora Bora: Celebration Festival (Bora Bora, French Polynesia)
    Windstar's guests will be welcomed to relax on a private motu with a traditional flower lei. Enjoy an amazing feast on your private beach followed by after-sunset entertainment. Fire dancers will light up the night with flames and skilled moves! This is quite a way to spend the evening after an active day in the sun.




Windstar Cruises Bora Bora Glass Bottom
  • Bora Bora: Glass Bottom Boat (Bora Bora, French Polynesia)
    This covered glass-bottom boat excursion gives a glimpse of Bora Bora’s underwater life in Pofai Bay, the center of an ancient sunken volcano covered with sky-blue waters. These waters are full of giant coral formations and brightly colored fish swim about the shallow waters near the reef.



Windstar Cruises Sacred Sites
  • Sacred Sites and Cultural Walk (Huahine, French Polynesia)
    Home to the largest concentration of archaeological sites in Polynesia, Maeva Village is where you’ll start your tour. The Fare Potee Museum will give you a first-hand experience of Polynesian life, and the village of Faie is where you can visit with giant blue-eyed eels. Continue up the highland to the Belvedere Lookout where you’ll have a postcard-like photo opportunity of the gorgeous Bay of Maroe.
