Itinerary Overview

A far-ranging, in-depth voyage to the heart of Polynesia

Embark on a sweeping adventure to the western reaches of Polynesia and explore from the verdant crags of Tahiti to the vibrant reefs of Fiji—plus tropical islands and reefs that few others will ever see. Immerse yourself in Aitutaki’s warm turquoise waters, and experience genuine Polynesian welcomes throughout Samoa. Visit the tiny island nation of Wallis and Futuna, as very few travelers have, and marvel at impressively decorated cathedrals before diving into a sparkling lagoon. Learn new techniques for photographing colorful markets and friendly faces, as you are welcomed into Fijian villages with traditional kava ceremonies. Whether it’s Pacific culture or nature that you seek, this in-depth Polynesia and Fiji travel expedition offers it all.


  • Ride Zodiacs through the pass at Aitutaki, entering its sparkling turquoise lagoon.
  • Snorkel and dive colorful reefs in five different Pacific nations—French Polynesia, Cook Islands, Samoa, Wallis and Futuna and Fiji.
  • Marvel at elaborately decorated cathedrals in Wallis & Futuna, a tiny, difficult to reach, Pacific island nation.
  • See firsthand how the village of Waitabu created Fiji’s most successful marine park, as you snorkel or dive the healthy house reef.
