Hawaii & Tahiti Escape

Duration
11 Days
Prices From:
AU$ 3,501

Escape on a truly Polynesian getaway to the islands of Hawaii, Tahiti, and Moorea. Explore the dramatic history of Pearl Harbor in Honolulu before heading to the Islands of Tahiti, known for their white-sand beaches and crystal-clear waters. You’ll have several days on Tahiti and Moorea to enjoy all that the South Pacific has to offer.


This 11-day South Pacific vacation takes you to Hawaii, Tahiti, and Moorea for a beachside escape. It features first-class accommodations, active tours, and is perfect for globetrotters wanting to soak up the warmth of the South Pacific.

Your journey begins in Hawaii, where you’ll stay at a first-class resort near beautiful Waikiki Beach, in the centre of Honolulu. During your time in Honolulu, you’ll enjoy the amenities of your resort as well as easy access to the beaches and waters of the Pacific Ocean. One day, you’ll delve into the past with a historical tour of Pearl Harbor, learning about that infamous day in 1941. You’ll visit the USS Arizona Memorial Centre, the remains of the USS Arizona at Pearl Harbor, and the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific. You’ll also have time to visit Iolani Palace, the only royal palace on American soil. Your other day is at leisure to take advantage of the city and beach.

From Hawaii, connect to the island of Tahiti in French Polynesia. You’ll enjoy a couple nights at a beachside resort and explore some of the historical and natural wonders of this famous island of the South Pacific. An island tour will showcase some of its foremost treasures. Start on the west coast where you’ll see the restored Polynesian temple of Marae Arahurahu. Swing by the gardens and waterfall of Vaipahi before reaching Venus Point on the east coast, where James Cook visited when exploring the island. End at Tahaara Lookout Point, with its breathtaking 360-degree views of the island and neighbouring Moorea.

You’ll then connect from Tahiti to nearby Moorea and have a few days to explore this beautiful island, which is often overlooked in favour of Bora Bora or Tahiti. Enjoy the amenities and beachside location of your resort. You’ll have a couple days at leisure to follow your fancy and take full advantage of the warm weather. One day, you’ll also head on an ATV Discovery Tour of the west coast. Drive along the main road to Opunohu Bay and summit Belvedere Lookout to enjoy panoramic views over the jungles and mountains of the island. Another day, head on a guided snorkelling tour of Moorea’s lagoon. You’ll transfer to Motu Ahi to meet your guide and head into the waters to snorkel alongside surgeonfish, parrotfish, butterfly fish, stingrays, and black-tipped reef sharks. Your guide will even feed some of these fish alongside you beneath the waves.

At the end of your stay, connect back to the airport and return home.
