Paul Gauguin Cruises sail around the beautiful Tahiti, French Polynesia, and the South Pacific aboard their 5 star ship the ms Paul Gauguin. When school is out they offer a wonderful program that allows families to explore this part of the world together. Paul Gauguin Cruises has partnered with she Wildlife Conservation Society to offer a unique family program for children ages 7 to 17.
Here is a description of the program:
Through Paul Gauguin Cruises’ partnership with WCS, the Stewards of Nature family program invites children and teens ages 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 snorkeling 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 program are included for children and teens through a nominal fee ($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.
