Ia Orana !
Graduated in Economics in 1995, I then took maritime courses and got my degree as Chief Engineer and Captain in order to get myself ready for the family ship business.
Since 1995, I have been greatly involved in the maritime industry. I started in the travel industry with Aremiti, a maritime transportation company between the main island of Tahiti and sister island Moorea and I was also involved in Tahiti Haumana Cruises, a 12-cabin yacht offering soft adventure and discovery cruises in the atoll of Rangiroa.
In 2005, I decided to create and launch Tahiti Cruise and Vacation. The success of your vacations in French Polynesia is our daily preoccupation. An online, optimised, booking engine and specialised Tahiti and her islands travel agents available 7 days a week, we will accompany you before, during and after your Tahiti vacation or honeymoon. French Polynesia is now at your finger tips.
Native from Raiatea and with a bachelor of arts degree in hand, I started my career in a family business offering a lagoon tour with dinner on a motu. Based on this experience, I then started working at Tahiti Cruise and Vacation as a booking agent and product manager.
Today I hold the position of Agency Manager and listen to our diverse range of customers and make every effort to understand and respond to their needs and expectations by tailoring vacations to better meet their needs, budget and desired timeframe.

Ia Orana, Maeva,
Born and raised in French Polynesia, my love for my country and above all my willingness to share it with visitors brought me to leave Tahiti at the age of 13 for France. After graduating in Tourism studies at the IREST – Panthéon in Paris, at Hawaii Pacific University and Airline management at the Ecole Nationale de l´Aviation Civile in Toulouse, I started my career in Air Tahiti Nui as a network analyst at the Program and Alliances department, a fabulous and human adventure.
Then, I set up with Nelson LEVY an online tour operator based in Tahiti in charge of the Product department. This wonderful and unforgettable experience led me for two years to be a technical advisor in Ministers of Tourism and International Airline Transportation.
Since February, I joined the Tahiti Cruise and Vacation team, a new adventure with great people and exciting challenges to overcome! My mission: Get you the best service with the best offers at the best value.
We look forward to welcoming you in our islands !
Having grown up in London and traveled all over Europe, I moved to Los Angeles and went to Pepperdine University in Malibu. Majored in Public Relations, I started my career in a large PR firm in London and went back to New York to do a lot of digital media promotions.
Based on this rewarding experience, I moved to Tahiti in 2002 and joined the Tahiti Cruise and Vacation team where I contributed to all aspects of the company such as online marketing and web development.
In March 2012, my knowledge of the destination having lived in Tahiti for ten years has led me to start Tahiti Cruise & Vacation in Los Angeles as a Sales & Office Team Manager.
Living in my mother's guest house in Bora Bora provides a great opportunity for me to meet new people from different backgrounds and learning about different cultures. I have lived and studied in Australia and moved to Indonesia which help me see the world from a completely different perspective.
Today I'm proud to be part of the team at Tahiti Cruise & Vacation, working to make your dreams come true and help our customers discover the cultural, traditional and natural heritage of my native islands..

From New Zealand to Japan through the United States and France, these trips led me to discover the tourism industry. Meeting people from different cultures who idealize the islands I represent, inspired me to work in the travelling world.
Holding a Bachelor of Arts degree, I decided to get into this world two years ago, to expand my linguistic and professional knowledge through various specialized trainings. I first started training as an international welcoming agent in Tahiti, then as a flight attendant at the ESMA in Montpellier upon completion of a travel agent training.
Upon successful completion of a probationary period at Tahiti Cruise & Vacation, I started to work as an online travel agent. In charge of the international market, I will be able to meet your needs applying my knowledge and skills I have gained so far, in the best turnaround times and make your Tahiti & her islands vacation a unique and unforgettable one. Make your dream come true with travel specialists!
Ia Orana, Manava,
Born and living in Raiatea, I started to work in a variety of areas including hotels, restaurants and one of the leading travel agencies. I keep a fond memory of these unexpected human exchanges that spice up travels and make them more meaningful.
I'm looking forward to making your dreams come true and helping you discover exotic itineraries in a secure environment. Concerned about the least detail, I always bring my own special touch, worthwhile detours and other nice surprises that will make your vacations unique and memorable.
