Tahiti is in the Society Islands, made up of the Windward and the Leeward Islands. This area boasts some of the most famous, spectacular landscapes in the world, including the idyllic Bora Bora for romantics, as well as Raiatea, Tupai, Maupiti and Moorea.
We offer a great one week luxury GaySail Exclusive Catamaran cruise. We sail along the beautiful Tahiti Islands on a luxury 52 feet catamaran which gives room to 14 people. See pictures. This GaySail Exclusive cruise is including the service of a gay skipper, gay cook/co-skipper, breakfast, lunch, soft drinks, harbor fees, gasoline, cleaning and taxes. These catamarans only have one cabin with bunk bed, so if the catamaran is fully booked you might have to share a cabin with double bed as a single (unless you book a private cabin with private bathroom and pay 80% extra, using booking code “privatedoublecabin”), but you can always inform first if there are single bunk bed or single crew cabins left. The single Crew cabins are the two 30% cheaper, small cabins in the front, (booking code “crewcabin2”) only reachable from the deck.
Sail around the ancient volcanic remains and atolls while spotting turtles, dolphins, unspoiled coral and shoals of colorful fish. There is so much to experience, such as swimming with sharks and manta rays, diving, hiking and even jeep safaris of volcanic rock faces. Fans of fine dining will enjoy the very best French cuisine with a Polynesian influence, supported by a palette from paradise. You’ll be hosted by wonderful local people warmly sharing their culture with you.
A Tahiti gay sailing vacation offers balmy easterly trade winds averaging between 15 and 20 knots throughout the year, virtually guaranteeing a relaxing GaySail every day in the calm waters behind the reefs and spirited sailing on open-water passages. The beauty and unique character of these exotic waters lures less experienced and veteran sailors alike to return time after time for more adventures. Year-round temperatures range from 78°F to 80°F .
Although Bora-Bora, Raiatea, Tahaa, and Huahine are neighbors, each island has a slightly different ambience. Of course, the South Pacific beauty is a common trait. The exquisite reefs, motus, and beaches are too. But on one island the emphasis may be more on catering to the chic, while on another Nature is supreme. On still another the handiwork of local artists or the quiet reverence at a stone temple dating back to the earliest times of Polynesian travelers is in evidence. Together, the four treasures of the Tahitian Leewards are an enchanting cruising ground for a memorable Tahiti gay sailing vacation.

A Tahiti gay sailing itinerary typically includes easy passages within the protected waters behind the beautiful coral reefs that encircle the islands, allowing for relaxed sailing in one of the most exotic cruising grounds in the world. Snorkeling and scuba diving on the reefs, swimming and sunbathing on white-sand beaches, enjoying the delights of luxury resorts, shopping, and fine restaurants, and spending quiet evenings aboard our luxury catamaran in picturesque anchorages are all part of what makes Tahiti sailing so appealing. Relatively short passages between the islands (see Tahiti maps) integrate open-ocean sailing. The longest passage to windward is about 18 nautical miles. The open-water passages downwind from Huahine to Tahaa and from Tahaa to Bora-Bora are simply spectacular, South Pacific sailing at its very best.
Tucked into the south end of Tahaa, Apu Bay provides excellent protection. The mountains on Raiatea and Tahaa are magnificent. The scenery is picture-perfect South Pacific and a key reason why yachting in Apu Bay is so popular. A great meal at the French restaurant at the Taravana Yacht Club and then relaxing over cocktails is a splendid way to relax on the first day of your charter. Take a stroll and admire the scenery.
