Getting To and Around
Raiatea is served by Air Tahiti with frequent 40-minute
flights from Papeete and Moorea, and with several
daily 15-minute flights from Huahine and Bora Bora.
Transport from the airport
to the hotels should be arranged by your preferred
travel professional or by your hotel.
Ferry service also connects Raiatea with Bora Bora,
Huahine, and Papeete, but runs infrequently.
Raiatea has a few taxis, and operates
the public transit system, Le Truck, with daily routes
from outlying villages to the town of Uturoa.
The circle-island and interior roads are best explored
through hired excursion or by renting a car. To explore
the lagoon, choose among motorboat, sailboat, or outrigger
canoe rentals for a half or full day.
Yachts ranging from 36 to 51 feet can also be chartered,
with or without captain and crew.
