Saint-Xavier Maris-Stella

Ferry in French Polynesia

Travels a circuit from Pape’ete every 15 days, taking in Mataiva, Tikehau, Rangiroa, Ahe, Manihi, Takaroa, Takapoto, Aratika, Kauehi, Raraka, Toau, Fakarava, Kauehi, Niau, Apataki, Arutua and Kaukura over 10 days. Departing from Pape’ete, fares vary from 7100 CFP to 15,000 CFP (deck class) depending on the distance travelled, and from 10,000 CFP to 37,000 CFP for an air-conditioned cabin. Meals are included.

This is the most comfortable option for the Tuamotus, but it’s still pretty basic.
