Update for Voyages Until the End of 2023 Regarding Private Beach Experience in Bora Bora

Please note that voyages until the end of 2023 will not include the private beach experience in Bora Bora. We recognize there may be disappointment about this situation, however, due to supply chain issues with replacing the engine for one of the specialized transit boats (which allows for water landings), we are unable to operate this specific experience. This does not affect any shore excursions or the Motu Mahana experience in Taha’a, which will operate as planned.

We have replaced this experience with Matira Beach, the island’s award-winning public beach that features restaurants, public facilities and shopping. It features powdery white sand, a spectacular lagoon, and is surprisingly uncrowded. We will be operating a tender to the pier and free transportation to Matira Beach throughout the two days at Bora Bora. We believe the alternative experience is comparable and has proven to be enjoyable to our guests thus far. 

Travel does occasionally necessitate flexibility and we truly appreciate our guests’ understanding. The website is currently being updated.
