Explore the natural wonders of Tahiti, the heart of the South Pacific, on this half-day afternoon tour of the island. Following hotel pickup in Papeete, travel aboard an air-conditioned coach to scenic highlights narrated by your knowledgeable guide.
Your first stop will be on the west coast where you will visit the famous Marae Arahurahu, a religious site dedicated to the ancient gods where important ceremonies used to take place.
For manicured landscapes, your next stop is the Vaipahi Garden where you can wander around a tree-shaded wonderland of waterfalls, ponds and colorful tropical flowers. Your guide can help you identify the plant life as you take in this botanical gem.
Next visit Venus Point, located on a black-sand beach at Matavai Bay. Note the Victorian-era lighthouse and a monument that commemorates Captain James Cook, who observed the 1769 transit of Venus here during his work for the Royal Society.
Your coach journeys along scenic roads to the Arahoho Blowhole, where you’re treated to a natural show of seawater that spouts skyward during large ocean swells. Stroll the strip of shoreline along this popular surfing spot before boarding the coach.
Afterwards, visit Taharaa View Point for breathtaking panoramic views over the island before being returned to your hotel in Papeete where your tour ends.
