I did Tahiti in July of 2000 aboard The Renaissance.
I liked the cruise method as a way of saving $$ on meals and lodging.
There are places where you can save some money, like the Club Med in Bora Bora, or a YMCA/hostel type thing in Papeete.
The islands are not very far way from each other and they are all small, like 18 miles around. I know b/c I bicycled around Huahini !
One could do 2 islands a day with a charter boat tour is you base out of Bora Bora or Moorea.
If you do a land deal, you might want to get one of those places over the water with the glass floors. You turn the lights on underneath and the fish come around. Kind nice. And they have a ladder leading directly into the water or just dive right in from your deck!

20 years ago we had Johnny Cash, Bob Hope and Steve Jobs. Now we have no Cash, no Hope and no Jobs. Please don't let Kevin Bacon die.
