What To Expect
Get ready for an exciting day of exploration on the island of Raiatea!
Visit a pearl farm and learn all about the day-to-day process of cultured pearl farming. See live demonstrations and get a chance to see the farm's latest pearl harvests.
Next, sail on French Polynesia's unique navigable river, the Faaroa. Be dazzled by the forests' tropical vegetation such as purau (wild hibiscus), bamboo and mape (Pacific chestnut) as you cruise along the riverbanks.
We'll make a stop at the island's large lagoon for some snorkeling before we have lunch on a motu.
After lunch, you may opt to swim and explore your surroundings, catch some rays or continue snorkeling at the lagoon before we head back to your hotel.
