In Bora Bora, guests can relax on a white-sand beach and enjoy refreshments, a game of volleyball and snorkelling in crystal-clear waters.

Paul Gauguin Cruises is pleased to announce a new global collaboration with the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS). WCS has been committed to saving wildlife and wild places worldwide since 1895. Beginning in 2017, WCS will offer educational programming for adults and families aboard the Paul Gauguin. The series will comprise lectures about marine science and wildlife conservation in the South Pacific and beyond. Additionally during the summer months and holiday season, WCS will inspire guests to value nature through the cruise line’s experiential family programme. WCS aims to protect half of the world’s biodiversity, while ensuring a positive impact on millions of people. Paul Gauguin Cruises is proud to collaborate with WCS in support of a healthy and sustainable planet.

On the Paul Gauguin’s 26th July 2017, voyage, the cruise line will present its third Reunion Cruise, which features a special 10-night Cook Islands & Society Islands itinerary with two visits to the line’s private island paradise of Motu Mahana.
