The waters of French Polynesia and the South Pacific offer a world of wonders with translucent lagoons, rainbow-colored coral reefs, and a myriad of tropical fish. A highlight of the Paul Gauguin Cruises’ experience is watersports and many opportunities to explore these seas.
The specially designed watersports platform turns the ship into your headquarters for all kinds of adventures on the water. It’s as easy as descending to sea level and hopping aboard a windsurfer or paddleboard or launching a kayak.
Watersports equipment is also available when The Paul Gauguin calls upon their private beaches. Plus, if you plan on snorkeling in multiple ports, you’re welcome to check out snorkeling gear from the marina for the duration of your cruise.
The watersports marina is available in select ports and subject to weather conditions and local restrictions. Swimming from the watersports marina is prohibited.
Fun in the Sun
You’ll also have plenty of time to enjoy the South Pacific sunshine on the pool deck. Take a refreshing dip in the water or perhaps grab a beverage from the Pool Bar, a good book, and a deck chair, and settle in for a leisurely afternoon.
SCUBA Diving Excursions
If you’ve always wanted to try SCUBA diving, your cruise on The Gauguin is the perfect opportunity. The onboard marina offers diving excursions for all experience levels, and Paul Gauguin Cruises is the only luxury line in French Polynesia to offer PADI certification classes for novices.
