A Little Something for Everyone
The Gauguin's small ship size allow for navigation in shallow lagoons and narrow channels where larger ships may not sail.
Outdoor Pool and Pool Bar
Enjoy a refreshing dip in the onboard swimming pool, located under the sky on Deck 8 aboard The Gauguin. Or perhaps you’ll simply relax poolside in a deck chair, with a good book and a beverage from the Pool Bar. Aboard The Gauguin, you can also take advantage of the onboard SCUBA lessons. The Gauguin is the only luxury ship in French Polynesia to offer PADI certification on board for novice divers, as well as refresher courses.
Watersports are a highlight of the Paul Gauguin Cruises’ experience.
Aboard the m/s Paul Gauguin
Aboard The Gauguin, a specially designed retractable watersports platform enables guests to descend to sea level, where they can conveniently hop aboard a windsurfer or paddleboard, launch a kayak, or set out for an optional SCUBA diving expedition. The Gauguin’s SCUBA diving excursions are designed for all levels of experience, and are the only luxury ship in the French Polynesian islands to offer PADI certification onboard for novice divers, as well as refresher courses.
The watersports marina is available in select ports and subject to weather conditions and local restrictions.
Please note: Swimming from the watersports marinas is prohibited. European voyages offer limited watersports activities.
