Bora Bora Cruise

by Kshaunish Jaini

One of the most exotic places in the world is a tiny group of islands deep in the heart of the Pacific Ocean called the French Polynesia. Located thousands of mile away from any major landmass, the Polynesian group of islands have been been a source of inspiration to many, including the famous painter Paul Gauguin. This is no surprise, considering the secluded islands offer the most serene and unique natural wonders that only a few people get to experience in their lifetimes. Bora Bora is perhaps one of the most popular islands in French Polynesia and the best way to experience this gem is through a Bora Bora cruise. This tiny island - it only occupies 12 square miles of space - has become a world famous tourist destination in its own right. Bora Bora’s unique name comes from the Tahitian ‘pora pora mai te pora’ which translates into created by the Gods. One look at the island’s white sandy beaches and azure blue waters assures the viewer of the truth in this proclamation.

The island of Bora Bora offers all the luxuries and amenities for a perfect pacific getaway. It hosts some of the best resorts in the world, most of which are equipped with over-the-water bungalows, a helpful staff and amazing restaurants. The weather here is generally tropical, and stays in the pleasant 20s throughout the year. November to April is rainy season in Bora Bora, and as a result the island sees a dip in the tourist footfall around this time.

Why go to on a Bora Bora Cruise

There are two ways to get to Bora Bora - by air and via cruise ship . The choice between the two is crucial in terms of planning a holiday to Bora Bora. The Motu Mute Airport serves the island of Bora Bora, and getting to the main island from the airport only involves a small ferry ride. You can then check into a resort and commence your holiday. A more cost effective and popular way to see the island is to go on a Bora Bora cruise. Cruises are much more popular because of a lot of reasons. Firstly, on a cruise you get to see not just Bora Bora but quite a few other French Polynesian islands. Secondly, it saves the hassle of packing, unpacking, checking in and out every time you travel to a new island. Thirdly, since the meals, drinks and many other amenities are included in the cost of the cruiseship, it turns out to be much more cost effective.

Where do Bora Bora Cruises go?

Most Bora Bora cruises follow an itinerary which goes to 7, 12 or 14 days. Apart from that, cruises starting from the West Coast of USA can last for more than 50 days, but they also hit other spots such as Hawaii on the way. On a cruise, you will typically spend a day or two on an island and then sail away with the sunset. Usually, the islands that you will get to see apart from Bora Bora are Moorea, Huahine, Raiatea and Rangiroa. You might have to choose between itineraries and decide how much time you want to spend on each island.

Best time to take a Bora Bora Cruise

The tourist season in Bora Bora goes from May to October every year. This is when the island is untouched by rainfall and the weather is pleasant. Cruises are operative most of the year, and you might be lucky enough to get cheaper rates on offer. April and November are generally considered the best times to visit the island for slightly cheaper bookings and less crowds.
