Luxury line Silversea has revealed 17 voyages on the Silver Whisper in French Polynesia for 2026.
The ship will be based in the region between April and September 2026, visiting remote areas in the Society, Tuamotu and Marquesas Islands.
Silver Whisper will sail on a combination of seven and 14-night sailings in the idyllic region.
“Silversea’s rapid increase in capacity has opened opportunities for even deeper immersion into the world’s most enriching regions, such as French Polynesia,” said Conrad Combrink, Silversea’s SVP Expeditions, Destination and Itinerary Management.
7 days: The Society Islands
The shorter of the two itineraries sees Silver Whisper journey among the Society Islands’ most iconic destinations, as well as off-the-beaten-path gems.
The Society Archipelago is characterised by towering mountains and white-sanded atolls. From Papeete, Tahiti, guests will journey to Moorea, Raiatea on an overnight call, Huahine, and Bora Bora overnight.
There will also be three late departures to maximise time in Papeete, Moorea, and Huahine, enabling them to connect with the rich Polynesian culture.
Hosted by an expert guide aboard a traditional boat in Bora Bora, guests will learn about the important role of storytelling in local culture and how early navigators used the stars to sail through the Pacific Ocean.
In Huahine, travellers can join a cultural nature walk to discover the archaeological sites of the village of Maeva.
In Moorea, Bora Bora, and Huahine, guests can snorkel in crystal-clear waters for the chance to witness hundreds of fish species and corals.
Guests will also have the option of relaxing on a private island or motu, enjoying a traditional barbeque and local music.
14 days: The Society, Tuamotu and Marquesas Islands
The 14-day French Polynesia voyage on Silver Whisper departs from Papeete, Tahiti.
Guests will explore Moorea, Raiatea on an overnight call, Fakarava, Nuku Hiva, Fatu Hiva, Atuona, Tahuata, Rangiroa, and Bora Bora, before returning to Papeete.
As well as discovering the iconic peaks of the Society Islands and snorkelling guests on both itineraries can spot whales (August-November), accompanied by expert guides.
They can also lean learn about local culinary traditions in a test kitchen in Moorea and discover Raiatea by electric bicycle, among other immersive experiences.
As on the seven-day itinerary, guests will also have the chance to relax on a private island, as a highlight experience.
Additionally, a 21-day Easter Island sailing, departing Valparaiso on March 16, and two combination voyages broaden the regional offering for guests.
