Arrive at Rangiora Airport and be transferred to embark the 36-passenger catamaran, Haumana. Intimate and luxurious, this boutique yacht is your vessel for up to seven nights passing through warm waters and prodigious lagoons. A short distance north of Tahiti, countless sandy islets encircle two immense and luminous turquoise lagoons to create the fantasy-like atolls known as Rangiroa and Tikehau. |
Extensive onboard amenities and an accommodating 16-person crew ensure there’s no need to ever leave the ship, but pink-sand beaches, secluded islets, and an underwater world of living coral and colorful fish beg to be explored. Let a crew member coordinate one of many complimentary activities available and abandon ship for snorkeling, sea kayaking, guided fishing and fly fishing, private island excursions, and more. Spend your time onboard relaxing in the Jacuzzi spa, strolling the deck with a cocktail, playing games in the lounge, or getting lost in a good book from the library. The Haumana visits choice destinations within the atolls, but your personal daily itinerary is completely up to you.
All 17 guestrooms onboard feature picture windows and a queen-size bed and are approximately 162 square feet (15 sq m). Independent air conditioning and light-dimmers in each room ensure comfort, and all rooms have a private bathroom with a hair dryer and bath products containing the well-known Tahitian Manoi oils and fragrance. All rooms are also furnished with a television, safe, and DVD, VHS, and CD player.
