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.
Day 1 - Embark the m/s Paul Gauguin in Papeete, Tahiti, Society Islands
The largest of French Polynesia's 118 islands, Tahiti and its capital city of Papeete are the perfect place to begin your South Pacific sojourn. The Gauguin is already waiting in the harbor for your adventure to begin on the island that's called "the Queen of the Pacific."
Day 2 - Huahine, Society Islands
Don't be fooled by the vibe of this laid-back, secluded island. Many treasures are hidden among the lush rainforest and dramatic terrain. With a bit of exploration, you'll uncover some of the best-preserved archeological sites in French Polynesia. Underwater treasures await as well, with a SCUBA excursion in the lagoon.
Day 3 & 4 - Bora Bora, Society Islands
Indulge in two full days in Bora Bora, exploring lush peaks, wandering white-sand beaches, and marveling at iconic views of Mount Otemanu. Take the plunge with a SCUBA excursion to see the island's colorful coral reefs, enjoy a sunset jetboat ride, or spend a lazy afternoon on our private beach.
Day 5 - Rangiroa, Tuamotus
Life is beautifully simple in Rangiroa, the largest atoll of the Tuamotu Archipelago in the eastern Pacific Ocean. It's the perfect place to immerse yourself in the local culture. Tour a local black pearl farm, wander the village of Avatoru, or visit Dominique Auroy Winery, which produces French Polynesia's only wine label.
Day 6 - Fakarava, Tuamotus
Fakarava is an unspoiled paradise in every sense of the word. In addition to the many rare species of plants and animals you'll find in the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, it's also a place of cultural and historical significance, with charming villages, ancient temples, and spectacular coral churches.
Day 7 - At Sea
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.
Day 8 - Taha'a, Society Islands
As the day unfolds in front of you in Taha'a, where will you go? Exciting shore excursions await, but so does Motu Mahana, Paul Gauguin Cruises' own private islet. Choose from swimming, snorkeling, kayaking, or simply lounging on the beach with a cold drink from our floating bar. Les Gauguines are also on hand to share musical entertainment and Polynesian crafts.
Day 9 & 10 - Moorea, Society Islands
Step into a vibrant, colorful world in bright and beautiful Moorea, which welcomes you with azure lagoons, impossibly fresh tropical fruits, and palm-fringed beaches. Commune with nature on an optional dolphin-watching excursion with an expert marine biologist. Afterwards, spend some time getting to know the local residents while shopping for handmade crafts. In the evening sail back to Papeete, Tahiti. Don't worry-your journey hasn't quite ended yet. The Gauguin remains your floating home for one more night as you spend an evening exploring on land.
Day 11 - Disembark in Papeete, Tahiti, Society Islands
Tahiti's capital city of Papeete is where we'll part ways and say "until we meet again." But your journey doesn't have to end just yet-Tahiti's resorts, spas, restaurants, shopping, and nightlife await
