Society Islands & Tuamotus - 10-night Cruise

Whether you spend your days on land or underwater on this 10-night journey, aquatic beauty surrounds you. First, the Society Islands wow with lush rainforests, impossibly clear lagoons, and endless palm trees swaying in the warm breeze. Then, the Tuamotu Archipelago beckons with an underwater ecosystem that's known the world 'round. Grab a snorkel mask or dive tank and see it for yourself.

Highlights

  • Indulge in two full days in the Pacific paradise of Bora Bora. As if vistas of towering Mount Otemanu, romantic lagoons, and an unhurried pace of life weren't enough, our exclusive white-sand beach offers watersports, snorkeling, and ample places to relax.
  • Visit Fakarava, a UNESCO-classified nature reserve that's home to flora and fauna unseen anywhere else in the world. Experienced divers can take the plunge into the world's second-largest lagoon to spot gray sharks and untouched coral reefs.
  • Live the life idyllic with a memorable day on Motu Mahana, our own private slice of paradise. On this exclusive islet, treat yourself to sand between your toes, the shade of swaying palm trees, a sumptuous barbecue lunch, and, of course, drinks sipped from coconuts.

    Don't be fooled by the vibe of this laid-back, secluded island. Many treasures are hidden among the lush rainforest and dramatic terrain.

Like a priceless Paul Gauguin painting come to life, storied Bora Bora is colorful and unforgettable. The landscape alone will have you searching for adequate adjectives, especially once you see the lagoon-"turquoise" just doesn't do it justice.

    Day 6 - Fakarava, Tuamotus
    Fakarava is an unspoiled paradise in every sense of the word.

    Have you met Les Gauguins and Les Gauguines yet? Our onboard hosts are at the ready to share their Polynesian culture, with Tahitian dance lessons, hands-on traditional craft demonstrations, and an array of activities for all ages. The day is yours to make what you will of it. Perhaps you'll take in a lecture by one of our special guests or take part in cooking lessons with the executive chef. Or maybe you'll unwind poolside or treat yourself to a visit to the Deep Nature Spa... or why not both? A day at sea offers ample time to relax and plan your next adventure.

    Day 8 - Taha'a, Society Islands
    As the day unfolds in front of you, where will you go? Exciting shore excursions await, but so does Motu Mahana, Paul Gauguin Cruises' own private islet.
