The Islands of Tahiti Are Happy!

March 19, 2014 on 10:52 am | In Beachbooker, Pacific Islands, Sailing, Scuba Diving, Tahiti | Comments Off

– GIE Tahiti Tourisme, Tahiti Tourisme North America’s head office, recently posted “Happy (We Are from Tahiti)” on YouTube. The video was created as a special version of Pharrell Williams’ hit “Happy” to showcase the Islands of Tahiti’s beauty and people. Williams’ hit song has gone viral with different countries adapting it to showcase what makes their country “happy.”

As in the original clip filmed in Los Angeles, the videos use a lip dub concept. A lip dub is a type of video that combines lip synching and audio dubbing to create a music video. It involves filming individuals or a group of people lip synching while listening to a song or any recorded audio then dubbing over it in post editing with the original audio of the song.

From Paris, Tokyo and Sao Paulo, the concept has become a worldwide phenomenon and GIE Tahiti Tourisme embraced the “happy” concept to show what makes the islands and people of Tahiti so special.

Behind the camera were two local producers, who used the beautiful islands of Tahiti, Moorea and Taha’a in GIE Tahiti Tourisme’s version of “Happy.”

The video can be watched here

About the Islands of Tahiti:

Easier to travel than often imagined, Tahiti is eight hours by air from Los Angeles with daily nonstop flights. Tahiti is halfway between California and Australia, on the same side of the International Date Line as North America and in the same time zone as Hawaii. There are a total of 118 islands and atolls that comprise this beautiful South Pacific country. Tahiti’s varied landscape ranges from just-above sea level coral atolls to volcanic mountain peaks. Tahiti is renowned for warm waters, white-sand beaches and stunning turquoise lagoons. Find the Islands of Tahiti on Facebook at , Twitter @TahitiTourism

Aranui 3 to Begin Calling at Takapotu

March 7, 2014 on 10:14 am | In Adventure Travel, Cruise Boats, Pacific Islands, Tahiti | Comments Off

Tahiti’s luxury tramp steamer, the Aranui 3 is adding the Tuamotun island of Takapoto, in place of Fakarava, on all future voyages. On Takapoto, passengers can explore the island or they can explore the atoll with a set of fins and a snorkel. The Aranui crew will prepare a full picnic lunch on one of the island’s white sand beaches.

The Aranui 3 departs Papeete on the island of Tahiti on 14-day circuits that sail 800 miles North to some of most remote islands in the world, where they will be fully immersed in the Polynesian culture. The Aranui now regularly visits Takapoto (in place of Fakarava) and Rangiroa in the Tuamotu Archipelago as well as Nuku Hiva, Ua Pou, Hiva Oa, Fatu Hiva, Tahuata and Ua Huka in the Marquesas Islands. The April 5 and Dec. 13 departures will add a stop on Bora Bora.

The voyage includes on-shore experiences such as hikes past waterfalls and sacred ritual sites, encounters with local artisans, a visit to Paul Gauguin’s grave, museums, snorkeling, picnics and restaurant lunches featuring local food, a visit to a pearl farm, and more.

The Aranui 3, which is a working freighter, features four different cabin categories — Suite, Deluxe, Standard and Class C — each providing different room configurations. The cruise includes three meals with complimentary wine daily, guided excursions as outlined in the itinerary, picnics and meals on shore. Optional excursions such as scuba diving, horseback riding and fishing are additional. Prices start at $2,624 per person and do not include port tax, cruise tax and tourism tax, which may total up to $355. Before long the company will announce a new ship.

Air Tahiti Nui Has Sea Eagles Back in NRL Nines

January 16, 2014 on 10:47 am | In Airlines, Australia, Beachbooker, New Zealand, Pacific Islands, Tahiti | Comments Off

Air Tahiti Nui is thrilled to announce its support of the Manly Warringah Sea Eagles during the NRL’s first Auckland Nines competition in February.

As an official naming sponsor of the 2013 NRL grand finalists, Air Tahiti Nui will feature on the back of the Sea Eagles players’ jerseys during the inaugural nine-a-side tournament at Eden Park on February 15 and 16.

Air Tahiti Nui General Manager New Zealand Australia Mark Hutchinson said the airline was proud to be associated with one of the NRL’s leading teams and looked forward to an entertaining weekend of exciting rugby league.

“The NRL is one of the great sporting competitions that crosses both our markets and with the tournament taking place in our New Zealand gateway, we couldn’t resist the chance to get involved and back a winning team,” Mr Hutchinson said.

“We now have three flights a week carrying sports-mad Aussies and Kiwis to Tahiti through Auckland and hope to see more Sea Eagles fans aboard in 2014 after giving their team a flying start in the Nines.”

The rugby league extravaganza will see talent from all sixteen NRL clubs in the same place for the first time with a jam-packed schedule of 31 games over two days and a prize pool of more than A$2 million.
