This is a place that everyone should see at least once in their lives. Tahiti is incredible. I have never seen such crystal clear water and beautiful coral. Actually better than what I saw on the Great Barrier Reef.
There’s only one thing wrong with Tahiti.
It is SO expensive!
Any resort there that includes meals (not drinks) will charge at least $7,000 USD per person for a week. So what’s the solution?
Paul Gauguin Cruises
I have done this twice and would go again in a heartbeat. This small cruise ship (just 330 passengers) winds its way through all of the islands so you get to experience some of the smaller, less inhabited islands.
While you are on board you receive all your meals, drinks, entertainment and the use of kayaks, paddle boards and much more which you can use from the back marina of the ship.
The unique thing about the Paul Gauguin is that it is specially designed to get into the shallow waters of the reefs around the islands.
You also get to enjoy a special day on an island. The ship sets up a bar and full dining facilities on the beach and they also bring over all the toys …. Kayaks, paddleboards and complimentary snorkelling gear.
The other unique thing is that the ship is staffed with local Polynesian people and while on board you can learn about the history and culture of these islands, the meaning of tattoos, all about pearls and you will be entertained by the amazing Gauguines. As you set sail in the South Seas on The Gauguin, Paul Gauguin Cruises’ own troupe of Tahitian hosts and entertainers known as Les Gauguins and Les Gauguines are there to share the ancestral arts of their people. Retelling epic Tahitian legends and stories through dance, song and cultural activities, they bring the colorful history of their islands to life while you enjoy your time on board.
If you have a special occasion to celebrate – like an anniversary – you can renew your vows on board in the traditional Tahitian manner.
