Celebrating 140 Years of Polynesian Culture in Tahiti | Episode 180


Location: French Polynesia
Latitude: -17.68000000

This week we take a short break from sailing to go ashore and watch as much of the local celebration of Heiva as we can.

Heiva is a Polynesian celebration that occurs every July in Tahiti, and since we just happened to be here during it, we are taking full advantage of all the festivities! First we get to see a few of the competitions like fruit carrying races, spear throwing, palm tree climbing, and lastly coconut husking racing... It was amazing getting to see so much of the Polynesian culture, and after the competitions we were lucky enough to get to see a few of the spirited and world famous dancing displays... Its a very beautiful culture and we are in love with this area!!

Join us on our sailing adventures throughout the Pacific Ocean!
