Paul Gauguin Cruises wants everyone in the family to get in on the fun while exploring French Polynesia and the South Pacific. To that end, it recently announced its 2025 Moana Explorer Program for the kiddos to indulge in on 11 summer and vacation season sailings.

“In 2025, we will mark a milestone fifth year of our exclusive partnership with Te mana o te moana, which continues to offer our young explorers authentically enriching experiences throughout the Islands of Tahiti,” said Susan Robison, General Manager of sales and marketing for Paul Gauguin Cruises in a press statement. “From learning about the care and protection of sea turtles, to playing beach “Survivor” games to hiking volcanic mountains, and snorkeling in pristine lagoons, the program goes far beyond the formulaic structure of traditional children’s programs and provides memories they will forever cherish.”

Te mana o te moana is a South Pacific marine education and conservation foundation designed to engage children with hands-on, interactive activities both on board and ashore while showcasing the natural wonders and unique cultures of the region.

Paul Gauguin Cruises Are Fun For All Ages

The Moaona Explorer Program is complementary and created for kids ages six to 15. Together with Te mana o te moana, your client’s kids can hop into the water to explore the life under the waves, conduct water experiments, make natural jewelry, engage in a treasure hunt, learn about Tahitian culture, island legends and geology, designed a Polynesian tattoo and much more. Activities depend on the itinerary.
