KARL Stefanovic and girlfriend Jasmine Yarbrough have escaped the Sydney cold to frolic in the waters of Bora Bora and with James Packer aboard his super yacht.

The couple have been spotted soaking up the sun on the luxury vessel and getting their adrenaline pumping on some jet skis. The pair joined a small group of friends, including Packer and his kids, for the surprise holiday.

Karl stripped down to a pair of swim shorts and wore a life vest which showed off two small Chinese symbols tattooed on his left shoulder and another tattoo on his right shoulder.

Yarbrough, looking tanned and toned in a black bikini, laughed as she took a jetski for a solo spin. Packer chose to keep dry, staying under the shade on the yacht.

Later on, the group was seen sitting down on the boat to enjoy a meal together.

Stefanovic raised eyebrows when he pulled a disappearing act in the middle of Thursday's broadcast of the Today show - leaving viewers to wonder where he had gone.

The Daily Telegraph soon revealed his abrupt escape was all a well-­orchestrated plot to avoid ­paparazzi on his way to the romantic getaway.

Fairfax reports when Stefanovic returns next week he'll be taking care of the three kids he shares with his ex Cassandra Thorburn - Jackson, 17, Ava, 12, and River, 10. It's reported they'll spend the week with him on the road while he works on the Today show.
