Nestled among the cool Pacific waters, Polynesian settlers found a string of fruitful and fertile emerald islands, carpeted with lush rain forests. Scattered over a vast, 2.5 million square kilometer area in the South Pacific, French Polynesia is made up of a series of islands, atolls, and archipelagoes! Each of these islands are surrounded by lagoons and barrier reefs that create unique eco-systems full of vibrant life and divine respites for the weary traveler.
The m/s Paul Gauguin let's you choose from 7, 10, 11 or 14 night Tahiti cruise vacations. All cruises sail roundtrip from Papeete, Tahiti.

Jean-Michel Cousteau - Special Guest Host on the June 24th/2017 Cruise
The son of the legendary Jacques Cousteau, whose television program "The Undersea World of Jacques Cousteau" brought an awareness of marine life to millions, Jean-Michel Cousteau has achieved a distinguished career as a respected oceanographer and environmentalist in his own right. Mr. Cousteau was introduced to the wonders of the deep at the age of seven, when he was thrown overboard wearing new diving apparatus his father had helped to develop: SCUBA gear. Instead of being afraid, the younger Cousteau was fascinated by the majesty and mystery of what he saw. He has since devoted his life to sharing that wonder with others. In addition to serving for 20 years as executive vice president of the Cousteau Society, his father's non-profit organization.
Enjoy Paul Gauguin Cruises Private Paradise ... and Yours!
Part of what makes a voyage with Paul Gauguin Cruises so special is the access our small ships provide to some of the world's most idyllic, unspoiled beaches. In Polynesia, two of those beaches are ours exclusively, and we are happy to share with you the opportunity to spend as much as a full day delighting in their pleasures. Those who enjoy watersports especially are in for a real treat at either of these options.
Motu Mahana in Taha'a - Tucked away off the coast of Taha'a is Motu Mahana, Paul Gauguin Cruises' unique island retreat. Spend the day doing exactly what you'd like, whether that's enjoying a good book under the shade of a swaying palm, snorkeling in impossibly blue waters, engaging in a demonstration of Polynesian culture, such as the life of the coconut, or treating yourself to an overwater massage. When refreshments are in order, indulge in a sumptuous barbecue feast - complete with cocktails from our floating bar.
White-Sand Beach In Bora Bora - During The Gauguin's port call on Bora Bora, spend as much time as you'd like on our exclusive beach on a motu off the coast. Enjoy beach volleyball, kayaking, paddleboarding, snorkeling, and postcard-perfect views of Mount Otemanu towering over the main island in this exclusive getaway.
