Extend your trip by starting with this beautiful 7-night Dreams of Tahiti cruise.
The Wind Spirit with only 148 guests will feel like your own private ship. She’s large enough to pamper and entertain you, yet small enough to tuck into delightful tiny harbours and hidden coves that others can’t reach.

A graceful yacht is the perfect way to experience the true wonder of Tahiti. Visit one legendary island after another, with plenty of casual time to swim and snorkel in crystal-clear lagoons, meander through lush rainforests, and experience the fascinating Polynesian culture from tikis to tiare flowers.

This will be my 8th group cruise with Abercrombie & Kent and they have all been wonderful as the expedition team is superb, the ships are new and modern
plus we’ve seen so many interesting and beautiful places. There is great camaraderie when cruising with others, although everyone is quite independent.

I’m excited about this trip to remote and rarely visited islands with unique histories, rare fauna & flora and pristine waters.

We look forward to hearing from you and helping you plan your ideal holiday – 021 434 9394
