why tahiti?

The islands of Tahiti, with their jungle covered peaks, pristine lagoons, and powder white sand beaches are the quintessential, idyllic South Pacific destination. Passages between islands are perfect for applying our new found sailing skills, and each night we enter a protected lagoon to anchor for the night. This area is considered a more “advanced” sailing area, with it’s challenging reef passes and tricky anchorages, which makes it perfect for a live aboard course. The locals are incredibly friendly and there is a vibrant local culture.
