Tahiti is one of the islands of the French Polynesia archipelago, located in the middle of the Pacific Ocean between Australia and South America. Tahiti is also the largest island of another one hundred and more islands included in the archipelago. The most popular sailing itineraries may include the islands of Bora-Bora, Raiatea, Tahaa, and Huahine. The region boasts absolutely stunning ocean views, that is why French Polynesia is still considered to be simply a sailing paradise and the most desired destinations to set sails in throughout the year. The three above mentioned islands are known as the famous Leeward Islands of Tahiti, offering some of the most exclusive sailing facilities in the world one may only dream of.     

Sailing in French Polynesia you will be astonished by the number of islands with different origin. Some of them are formed by volcanic eruptions and have extremely diverse nature – rivers, lakes, waterfalls, lagoons, canyons, lush tropical vegetation that cover valleys and forests, thickets of trees, coconuts and bananas. The others are formed with corals and have sandy plains covered with palm trees, surrounded by the smooth surface of the ocean.

Sailing in the Leeward islands of French Polynesia, you may wish to enjoy snorkelling among those reefs and exploring the magical underwater world with its inhabitants, or check out a couple of scuba diving locations. Find out a great number of fish species, spend some unforgettable time watching sharks, dolphins and turtles - the nature itself is calling to show you all it has to offer! If you are not much about it, then you have an extensive choice of water sport activities, as well as gastronomy and archaeological tours across the islands, when taking a yacht charter in Tahiti.

Culture and History of Tahiti

Being a cultural centre of French Polynesia, Tahiti has a rich and interesting historical view with the traditions going back to the ancient times, dated as 500 year BC. Sailing in Tahiti is somehow can be compared with exploring the bright legends and myths about the island’s life. 

The main concept of Polynesian life is called Mana. Mana is something that is not just a list of rules or traditions to follow, it is more the way of life, the core of the local identity and existence. Every single being or thing in the Universe is the part of Mana - the self-concentrated system that is fundamental, harmonic and undisputed. The main rule of Mana, better say its idea, is to be kind, wise and generally ‘pure’ - then it is the right way, and Mana lives in you. 

In X-V centuries BC these islands were inhabited by MAOI who left here ancient heritage of their complex civilization. Sanctuaries, cairns, traditional paintings, tattoos and dances all this reflects unique culture, religion, and a clear hierarchy of MAOI society all this you will be able to explore during your sailing vacations in Tahiti.

 

English captain Samuel Wallis and  French sailor Louis-Antoine de Bougainville, Cook first discovered these lands in XVII. Original name "Polynesia" was given by sailors who simply described with this word "many islands" in the southern sea. These islands are also famous for a well-known Captain William Blyth, who came here on "Bounty" frigate to collect breadfruit tree sprouts - food for the slave Caribbean plantations, but faced for the most incredible rebellion in the history of seafaring. Polynesian monarch Pomare V gave these lands to France and starting from 1984 French Polynesia became one of the French overseas territories, but still has it’s autonomy – President, the Council of Ministers and the legislative assembly. France is only responsible for legal, financial and military issues. All guests in airport are greet with flower necklace made from gardenia, symbol of Tahiti and see off with a necklace made of shells.

Fortunately connection with Europe did not influence a lot local way of life. Renting a boat in French Polynesia you will be amazed by the life that still goes on in its leisurely pace. Here you will drink  coconut water from the cup made of coconut shell and eat from a plate made of palm fronds.

Cuisine of Tahiti

Tahitian culinary traditions and history is a discrete topic to talk about, due to several reasons. One of them may be already the fact, that this region is called French Polynesia, probably that is why local cuisine has very much of its so-called French flavour. Besides, traditions of Polynesian cooking required special methods, techniques and approaches, for example, using open fire and wood or coal as a fuel, ideally avoiding cooking with modern cookers and kitchen facilities like ovens or grillers. Generally, Tahitian menu may include an extensive list of vegetable-based foods provided in a variety of healthy and sophisticated fish and meat courses. Be prepared to taste tropical fruits in the majority of Tahitian dishes and meals. Vegetable and fruit leaves are often used for wrapping and serving food in Tahiti. Absolutely, the food of Tahiti is mouth-watering, and you should give it a try. Below you may wish to find a shortlist of traditional dishes, commonly served in Tahiti:

Poisson Cru. In French, ‘poisson cru’ means ‘raw fish’. So, as you may guess, it is the main ingredient of this Tahitian specialty. Poisson Cru (though called not like this among the locals) is generally considered to be the national dish of French Polynesia. Basically, it can be made not only of tuna, as it is supposed to be made, but using a variety of any other fish. Though only fresh fish is used, it should be freezed to prevent any risk of bacteria in it. 

Ma’a Tahiti. Sailing in French Polynesia, do not miss the chance to try this authentic local food specialty - ma’a dishes. This is a type of food (actually, can include whatever: pig, fish, crab or chicken) cooked with the help of traditional Polynesian oven, often placed right in the sand among the hot stones, that form a stove.

Considering a yacht charter in Tahiti, please pay attention to the fact, that the island attracts many travellers all the year round and remains one of the desired sailing and holiday destinations. If you wish the true Tahitian culture and celebrations, plan to come in May or July: at this time you have great chances to try sophisticated local cuisine and take part in traditional events, which tourists are always very welcome to.
