The travel plan in detail:
1st/ oktober – Tahiti to Moreea – 13 miles, Leg 1
We will set of from Marina Taina on Tahiti early morning and set sail over to one of Moreea´s beautiful bay´s. The plan is to stay on Moreea for a couple of days meanwhile we are waiting for a good window in the weather for our next leg towards The Marquesis.
Leg 2: Moreea to Tuamotos – aprox 260 miles
Our goal is to sail to Fakarava that is our most easterly destination in the Tuamotos. This requires some help from the winds and we must be prepared that we might have to change our first destination to another atoll.
Leg 3: CRUISING around the atolls in Tuamotos
This place is defiantly one of our favourite places in the world. Each and one of this atolls offers great snorkelling, spear-fishing, sandy beaches, palm trees, remote islands, and top diving. Don’t expect any nightlife or party- this place is all about nature and chilling out!
Again the weather will decide when we will move between the different places but these places will most likely be our destinations.
Almost all of our destinations has a small airport nearby and you will be able to find daily flights to and from Tahiti so this is an excellent place to embark or disembark the Bay Dreamer.
Leg 4: Tuamotos to Marquesas, 600 miles
This leg is pretty long and it might be one of the toughest on this journey. We will have to sail over 600 miles until we reach our first destination in the Marquises- Fatu Hiva. This leg definatly requires that we have the wind on our side, it´s way to far to even considering using our small engines.
When we arrive to the Marquises we will check out the following places
- Fatu Hiva
- Hiva Oa
- Nuku Hiva (Final Destination)
