The lagoons and the Pacific Ocean are ideal for enjoying shore excursions like water-based activities such as kayaking with Paul Gauguin.

Go diving from the ship’s marina and explore the glorious underwater depths. The MS Paul Gauguin has its own diving centre on board with certified instructors – a fantastic opportunity to enjoy unforgettable encounters with dolphins or sharks at the Tuamotu Islands, Manta rays at Bora Bora, and hundreds of multi-coloured fish.

Visit a black pearl farm, enjoy a bike trip or a 4×4 excursion, go on hikes and archaeological expeditions, take a helicopter flight: there’s such a wide selection of excursions giving you the chance to venture right to the heart of these islands, rather than just staying by the shore.

Private retreats at Bora Bora and Motu Mahana offer moments of serenity, with fine sand, crystal-clear water, and exclusive access aboard some itineraries. Enjoy activities like kayaking, snorkelling, and meditation in these paradisiacal settings.

Guest can also benefit from an all-inclusive package on board, covering activities, entertainment, conferences, water sports (excluding diving), and exclusive access to Bora Bora and Motu Mahana beaches. Butler and bar service are included in category B suites and above, along with 24/7 room service. Every meal, tea, light snacks, aperitifs, petit-fours, and daily minibar restocking are part of the package, featuring a variety of drinks, excluding the Sommelier menu, Grands Crus, and Vintage options.
