Society Islands & Tahiti Iti (New) - 7-night Cruise

Overview

Big discoveries await you in "Little Tahiti" (Tahiti Iti), the smaller of the two landmasses that comprise the island of Tahiti. No other cruise line offers you the opportunity to explore this region of wild coastline, ancient petroglyphs and marae (temples), and pockets of authentic Polynesian culture. But because The Gauguin is owned by French Polynesia's leading luxury hotel and cruise operator, we are the experts to the region, with resources no one else can match. Come sail the waters of French Polynesia that are our ship's home, and let us give you an unparalleled, comprehensive view of the real Tahiti. This brand-new itinerary also features Bora Bora, Moorea, Huahine, and our own private paradise off the coast of Taha'a.

Highlights

  • Explore Tahiti Iti with the experts who know its attractions and its people better than anyone else.
  • Spend a relaxing day on Motu Mahana, our very own private islet, complete with white-sand beaches, swaying palm trees, a barbecue lunch, drinks served in coconuts, and a floating lagoon bar.
  • Explore Bora Bora your way-visit our exclusive white-sand beach with volleyball, snorkeling, kayaking or paddleboarding, or opt for an optional four-wheel-drive safari, aquabike excursion, or glass bottom boat ride.

    Itinerary

    Day 1 - Embark the m/s Paul Gauguin in Papeete, Tahiti, Society Islands

    The islands of Polynesia are a gorgeous collection of volcanic atolls strewn across the grand Pacific Ocean, and the island of Tahiti is the largest of all 118. Explore the dynamic dining, nightlife, and shopping in the capital city of Papeete before embarking on The Gauguin.

    Day 2 - Huahine, Society Islands

    Known as "The Garden Island," Huahine's lush rainforests and dramatic terrain surround sacred sites and legendary landmarks that are among the best-preserved archeological sites in French Polynesia. If Huahine's expansive lagoon is calling your name, enjoy a SCUBA diving excursion or picnic on the beach.

    Day 3 - Taha'a (Motu Mahana), Society Islands

    Embark on your choice of exciting shore excursions today, or spend your whole day relaxing on Motu Mahana, our very own private islet. Enjoy swimming, snorkeling, and kayaking, or simply lounge on the beach with a chilled beverage from our floating bar. Les Gauguines will also be on hand to provide musical entertainment and demonstrate traditional Polynesian crafts. A delicious barbecue lunch is provided.

    Day 4 & 5 - Bora Bora, Society Islands

    A bucket list destination for many, stunning Bora Bora welcomes you for two full days of exploring lush peaks, white-sand beaches, colorful coral reefs, and romantic lagoons. Experience the natural beauty of the island with an optional snorkeling excursion, sunset jetboat ride, or a helicopter tour that flies you over Bora Bora's iconic Mount Otemanu. You can also spend time at our private beach which offers volleyball, snorkeling, kayaking and paddleboarding.

    Day 6 - Moorea, Society Islands

    Vibrant colors abound during two leisurely days in Moorea, in everything from fresh fruits and flowers to multi-hued lagoons, and from spectacular mountain peaks to palm-fringed beaches. Shop for local handicrafts, embark on an optional dolphin-watching expedition with a marine biologist, and sample the local pineapples, said to be the most delicious in all of French Polynesia.

    Day 7 - Vairao, Tahiti Iti

    Pay a rare visit to "Little Tahiti" (Tahiti Iti) on today's full-day call on the port city of Vairao. Those wanting to experience authentic Tahitian culture might visit one of the traditional Polynesian villages that dot the region. Venture to Fenua Aihere to explore caves, petroglyphs, and marae (temples). Or bask on La Plage de Maui (Maui Beach), considered by many to be the best white-sand beach on the entire island.

    Day 8 - Disembark in Papeete, Tahiti, Society Islands

    Tahiti's capital city of Papeete welcomes you back with emerald hillsides, sapphire waters, and warm breezes. If you're not ready for your South Pacific vacation to end, spend a few days here experiencing resorts, spas, restaurants, nightlife, and shopping.
