we are a family of three - with a 21yr old daughte - and we are going to embark on a Paul Gauguin cruise for 11 days (FP+ Cook Islands) on the 17th of November.
We were thinking of adding a couple of days both side of the cruise and were considering doing two in Papetee and one or two in an OWB.
For Papetee, reading the forums, it would seem one day would be enough for the Island and a second one could be spent doing an excursion to a nearby one. As the cruise will already be stopping two days in Moorea, we were considering Tetiaroa: but we are not sure how it could be reached and if is feasible as a daily excursion.
For what concerns the OWB, we were looking at Tikehau or Maupiti but how easy are they to get to? also any advice on the best one for people not interested in diving but just in soaking in some amazing nature?
thanks a lot for any advice
