Paul Gauguin Cruises offers stewards of nature family programme
A partnership with the Wildlife Conservation Society allows families to discover nature hands-on in Tahiti, French Polynesia, and the South Pacific
Paul Gauguin Cruises, operator of the highest-rated and longest continually sailing luxury cruise ship in the South Pacific, the m/s Paul Gauguin, is offering a way for families to explore Tahiti, French Polynesia, and the South Pacific on selected departures through a joint programme with the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS).
The South Pacific is more than a dream destination; it is also a fascinating getaway where families can share activities, strengthen bonds and create memories to last a lifetime. Through Paul Gauguin Cruises’ partnership with WCS, the Stewards of Nature family programme invites children and teens aged 7-17, as well as family members, to discover and value nature through hands-on, interactive learning.
Every day of the voyage, there is a combination of naturalist-led island and/or beach excursions, science activities, crafts, games, and other adventures.
Depending on the itinerary, children might learn about underwater life during a snorkelling excursion, observe the ocean or the stars through binoculars or an onboard telescope, and learn about different kinds of marine life and their habitats. Other activities include going on a dolphin-watching expedition, swimming with sharks and rays, playing beach games, enjoying a Tahitian dance performance on board, and learning what it means to be a Steward of Nature.
All of the activities with the programme are included for children and teens through a nominal fee (US$349-$399, depending on length of voyage). Family members are invited and encouraged to participate in most activities for the additional cost of the shore excursions.
