Tahiti re-opens to Americans...

Who could imagine that French Polynesia currently only allows Americans to enter the country, and nobody else?  These are exceptional times.

Update... We have a few last-minute trips available in July & August with a wonderful Naturalist Guide and friend, Alexandra. Please spread the word! 

Also in this newsletter... New Selaví floor plans, new Voyage Highlights, and Featured Guest: Bob. 

May you and your family be healthy and navigate these challenging times with grace 🙏

Tahiti Re-opens... read the details

Timeline of Covid Response in Tahiti:
  • March 2020. Borders close / strict lockdown in response to COVID.
  • July 2020. With comprehensive testing, borders reopen to tourists.
  • February 2021. Due to concerns about coronavirus variants globally (even though local cases remain low), borders close to tourism.
  • May 2021. Borders re-open to Americans only, thanks to the vaccination campaign in the USA. 
To visit Tahiti now:
  • Be vaccinated (or spend 10 days in hotel quarantine in Papeete).
  • This also applies to all children over 6 years old. 
  • You'll still need a negative PCR test 72hrs before travel, and a self-test in Tahiti after arrival. 
  • Only visitors with 30 consecutive days in USA are currently allowed.
  • More countries may be allowed entry in the coming months.

What's better than snorkeling in crystal clear water? 
SUP-norkeling ! 
Voyage Highlights: SUP-norkeling

"We paddled up a channel between two motus on a remote corner of the atoll. It felt like a strange river around coconut trees. Then we saw colorful corals, and jumped into the water with snorkel and masks... this was SUP-norkeling at its best!!"
- Sabrina

Featured Guest: Bob
Bob turned 80 during his visit to Selaví, sailed 200nm from Tahiti to Tuamotus, and visited four atolls during his stay. He is Captain K's dad. Fighting cancer for a year now, Bob felt recurring fatigue and pain during his stay. But every time he went swimming "the body felt great". He was stoked to see the catamaran sailing and had a big smile when his granddaughters Kaiana and Naiyah crawled around the cockpit. Despite windy, rough conditions, he joined us to celebrate New Year's Eve in Ahe with our friends at Kamoka Pearl Farm. When it was dumping rain, he swam with the Manta Rays in Tikehau. Bob is a reminder of carpe diem ; whatever your situation, you can experience great moments when you're willing to take the chance. 
Bob (80) and Susie (75) rinse off after snorkeling in Tikehau. Captain K hosted his family in Tuamotus aboard Selaví in December 2020.
