South Pacific Island Hopping

Jump to last reply

I am planning an approximately 1 month trip after my college graduation island hopping around the South Pacific, and would love some people's input and advice. I am hoping to stay off of the beaten trail and begin in Tuamoto and the Marquesas and work my way west. Though suggestions on beautiful and exciting places to go are much appreciated, I am really curious about logistics. What is the best way to do this? I understand it is easiest to use Papeete as a base from which to fly in and out of, but is it possible to avoid this, and travel between islands directly by plane, or more preferably as a passenger on a boat. Any information you have on personal experience doing this or local ships/airlines to look into would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,
