Four self-contained, air-conditioned passenger cabins with bathroom are designed for eight passengers. 2 of the 4 cabins with double beds convertible into 2 single beds.On the deck, 130 square meters of useful surface – a large cockpit-outside dining area sheltered from the sun – two large "trampoline/sunbathing areas" at the front of the boat – deck cushions and mattresses - each hull having transom steps for easy access to/from the water.Each catamaran has a team of one skipper and one chef-hostess, occasionally assisted by a guide. Both are experienced sailor and hotelier, and will also be your guides for the cruise.Obviously, boat handling and safety is left entirely to the crew. However, if you love sailing or dream to learn how to sail, you may take the wheel, send the mainsail up, or ask the skipper to tell you a few of his secrets....unless you prefer to watch the crew do the handling while you are comfortably lying on one of the two large "trampoline/sunbathing areas" at the front of the boat.Cabins and bathrooms are kept impeccably clean, with linen changed regularly.As to the delicious cooking served aboard, you will be sole judges but we already know that you'll love it!Depending on your tastes or desires, your leisure activities will also be organized by your crew with the concern to not disturb your privacy while maintaining safety at all times. You may like to swim in the company of rays, go for a kayak ride to a desert motu, discover the most attractive coral areas as though you were in a giant aquarium.On returning from a 4x4 land excursion, a long drink served by your skipper will surely be most enjoyable at this magical time when the sun sets the lagoon ablaze.

Aboard beautifully appointed yachts you can anchor off deserted island beaches, explore hidden bays, and if you're more actively inclined, fish, sailboard, or snorkel and dive on wonderful coral, alive with rainbow-coloured reef fish.

We'll fill your fridge and freezer with exquisite food, drink and gourmet items if you wish - fresh cheeses, beef brochettes, veal casserole, cold cuts and superb pastries, as well as champagne, wines, first class beers and soft drinks.Ashore, in traditional island villages where time stands still, local Melanesians will welcome you with warm smiles and age-old hospitality. With good food and good wine this is what leisure was surely meant to be! Visit the romantic L'Escapade Resort on Ilot Maitre and enjoy cocktails and dinner. A short sail away, climb the 231 steps to the top of the lighthouse at Amedee for simply stunning views and enjoy lunch and singing afterwards.

Charter Descrption:

Sail to the Isle of Pines, originally named by Captain Cook, and visit two of the most outstanding beaches in the South Pacific, Kuto and Kanumera. Visit the eerie remains of a former penal colony or take a guide to inspect the spectacular stalactite formations in caves ashore.

Later, at a rustic local restaurant, feast on tiny lobster cooked over campfire coals.And if you really crave discovery way off the beaten track, enjoy a glorious sail to the Loyalty Islands to the north-east. Ouvea, Lifou and Mare are untouched by commercial tourism, and are one of nature's best kept secrets. If it's sun drenched beaches you seek, you'll find them here.

The Aranui 5 commences cruises in November 2016. Until then the Aranui 3, a mixed passenger/cargo vessel operates between Tahiti and the Marquesas accommodating up to 200 passengers. The Aranui offers comfortable, air-conditioned cabins, creating an intimate environment for her guests. Passengers will be able to sunbathe on deck, swim in the pool, or enjoy exotic tropical drinks while the Aranui cruises among the Marquesas islands.Polynesian sailors work aboard the Aranui year-round as this freighter steams across the South Pacific, delivering cargo to some of the most remote islands on earth. The Aranui is the lifeline that links the distant Marquesas Islands in French Polynesia, 750 miles northeast of Tahiti, with the rest of the world. Their primitive beauty and erstwhile cannibalism have attracted writers, artists, and adventurers since the time of Captain Cook.Aranui's voyages cover all six inhabited Marquesas Islands, plus Takapoto and Rangiroa in the Tuamotus, the world's largest atoll. Travellers go along for the ride to watch the tattooed crew sling sacks of copraby day and strum ukuleles by night. They go to put tropical flowers behind their ears and learn the Tahitian three-step in the Aranui's bar. To see the lush landscape and wild stone spires of the islands. To explore ancient ruins, discover overgrown tikis, visit the grave of Paul Gauguin, and roam the valleys that inspired tales Robert Luis Stevenson.

RANGIROA CRUISES FOR 2 OR 3 NIGHTS Adventure in the heart of the Tuamotu: one week cruise with an opportunity for diving! "Discovery of the Tuamotu Islands Cruise." 3 or 4 days of solitude within the tranquil lagoon of Rangiroa atoll to intensely experience the world of the "Big Blue," and the opportunity to enjoy your favourite water sports. You will find windsurfers, snorkelling gear, and sea kayaks aboard the yachts. The short duration of this cruise is perfect for you to enjoy custom building your vacation, or if you are interested in an ocean cruise but don't want a full week on the water.

Archipels Croisières Team has recently announced the renewal of their entire fleet catamaran with the Eleuthera 60', the first new and larger catamaran will offer a better comfort and the addition of a fifth cabin.Built by Fountaine Pajot, located in La Rochelle France, Archipels Croisières will offer their passengers a significantly improved service with those new sailboats. Their first new catamaran is named Mata Fenua (eye of the land in Tahitian language).The catamaran is based in Tuamotu for the 3 and 4 days cruises in Rangiroa atoll and for the weekly itinerary in the heart of Tuamotu ( Fakarava – Toau – Rangiroa ).

Rangiroa is the largest of a chain of 78 atolls that comprise the Tuamotu, the world's most extensive atoll archipelago. Second largest atoll in the world (78 km long and 24 km wide, smaller only than Kwajalein in the Marshall Islands) this atoll is. The land mass of the Tuamotus is insignificant compared with what exists below the surface of the water. The composition of Rangiroa provides this unique feature: the reef's narrow passes funnel incoming tides to produce rapid localised currents.Tuamotu's natives, the "Paumotu," are these in Polynesia who keep the most sea oriented traditional way of life. They live in the lagoon, they live with the lagoon, from fishing, from the black pearl. 3000 are living in Rangiroa, 90% of them in the two villages of Tiputa and Avatoru. Outside of the two villages, located near the passes, Robinson Crusoe could have lived on these hundreds of tiny islands, called "motu," which form this huge coral belt. At the far end of the atoll, visitors may have the impression this is the place were world is beginning. One word...immensity as description would be enough. Immensity of colours, of beauty, of untouched nature variety, of clearness and calm.

THE "ROBINSON CRUSOE" CRUISE IN RANGIROA:

The cruise is held inside the atoll of Rangiroa – the second largest atoll in the Pacific (80 kms in length).
