Tahiti Ocean Joins Asia Pacific Superyachts

Tahiti Ocean – based in Pateete, Tahiti in French Polynesia – was the first port agency exclusively dedicated to the service of luxury yachts visiting French Polynesia and was founded in 1995. Etienne Boutin and his former partner Pascal Pique also created Pacific Avenues travel agency in 2003 to offer VIP travel and concierge services to yacht owners and develop a charter yacht portfolio.

Tahiti is the largest island in the Windward group of French Polynesia, located in the archipelago of the Society Islands in the southern Pacific Ocean. It is the economic, cultural and political centre of French Polynesia.
