Paul Gauguin Cruises has launched a new program for families looking to explore Tahiti, French Polynesia, and the South Pacific together during summer and holiday voyages.
In partnership with Te mana o te moana, a South Pacific marine education and conservation foundation, the Moana Explorer program invites children and teens, ages 7-15, to discover and value the natural wonders of the South Pacific through hands-on, interactive learning on board and ashore.
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 and teens might explore underwater life, conduct water experiments, create natural jewelry, go on a treasure hunt, learn about Tahitian culture, discover island legends and geology, design a Polynesian tattoo and more.
The Moana Explorer program is available on the following voyages in 2019:
7-Night Tahiti & the Society Islands
