Project details

French Polynesia is situated in the furthest corner of the Pacific Ocean. In the Society Islands, as the islands around Tahiti are called, a lot of different activities are offered: excursions, scuba diving, surfing, and many others. The Polynesians love sport and outrigger-canoeing is one of their favourites. The Hawaiki Nui Va’a is one of the greatest sporting events held in the Pacific. It is an outrigger canoe race: about a hundred teams leave from Huahine and have to reach Bora Bora, by way of Raiatea and Tahaa. On arriving at each stage of the race, there is always a great party atmosphere and the winners are welcomed with garlands of flowers to the sound of drums and singing. Every island has its own distinctive charm that distinguishes it from the others. Moorea has its dolphins and humpback whales, Raiatea has its Marae, Tahaa has its coral garden, and Bora Bora is famous for its lagoon.
