Paul Gauguin renews partnership for youth nature program

Naturalist-led activities
Paul Gauguin Cruises renewed its partnership with Te mana o te moana for the line’s Moana Explorer Program.

In collaboration with the 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 onboard and ashore.

Excursions, science activities, crafts, games and more

'Every day of the voyage, there is a combination of naturalist-led island and/or beach excursions, science activities, crafts, games and other adventures for [young guests] to enjoy while learning about one of the most unique destinations in the world,' said Susan Robison, GM sales and marketing for Paul Gauguin Cruises.

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 or design a Polynesian tattoo.

Available on seven cruises

The Moana Explorer Program is available on seven-night 'Tahiti & the Society Islands' cruises July 16 and July 23 and 10-night 'Society Islands & Tuamotus' cruises June 15, July 6 and Dec. 28. It is also offered on two 11-night programs, the June 25 'Society Islands & Tuamotus' and the Dec. 17 'Cook Islands & Society Islands.'

There is no fee but passengers are encouraged to reserve the program when booking the cruise or any time before their trip. It may be reserved onboard if space is available.
