Intimate - Luxurious - Uncrowded - Dramatic

Cruising is re-defined in Tahitian waters when you embark on a voyage to explore the
romantic and unspoiled isles
of the South Pacific on a scheduled or barefoot cruise or
yacht charter.

Here, the ports of call are uncrowded and charming, the ships are smaller and luxurious,
neon-blue waters within the lagoons are calm, and the ocean journey between the
green islands is short.


Floating atop the water playground of the lagoons, each ship offers unending activities for couples and families. A sampling of daily activities includes jet-skiing, windsurfing, waterskiing, parasailing, canoeing, diving, shark feeding, and snorkeling. Or, hop on a glass-bottom boat, explore a lagoon, or even charter your own catamaran or powerboat for the day.


by lush-green peaks, each island welcomes exploration by 4x4 safari to
dramatic overlooks, circle-island trips stopping off at fruit tasting shops and historic sites, shopping or walking trips through the villages, or guided hiking trips into the mountains for an overview of the land and ocean.

                                                                 UNIQUE EVENTS

Polynesia abounds in sights, sounds, and experiences found nowhere else on earth and they are easily discovered by cruise or yacht charter travelers. By day, live out your South Pacific fantasy when you anchor at a tiny motu for an afternoon of relaxation and fun or enjoy personalized tours of the historical and cultural sites hidden on each island. By night, enjoy the best Tahitian performers for elaborate and romantic displays of music and dance or have a private dinner on the beach as you watch the awe-inspiring sunset followed by the glorious moonlight on the beautiful blue, calm water of the lagoon.

Watersports are a highlight of the Polynesian experience. The m/s Paul Gauguin's small size allows it to navigate in shallow lagoons and narrow channels where larger ships may not sail. With the specially designed retractable watersports platform, guests may descend to sea level where they can conveniently hop aboard a windsurfer, launch a kayak, snorkel, or set out for a SCUBA diving expedition. A scuba certification program is offered onboard.
