Cruise visitors sailing on Paul Gauguin Cruises’ 7-night Tahiti and Society Islands voyage will spend two days at anchor in Cook’s Bay or Oahapanu Bay.   The island has  37 miles of drivable coastline and rental cars can be secured in town upon arrival.   Although Tahiti’s heart-shaped sister island Morrea is conducive to relaxation, the ship offers a full menu of shore excursions to keep passengers active and don’t forget the onboard marina, which offers complimentary kayaks and other water toys for guest use.

The most popular excursions include Parasailing, a Dolphin Watching Expedition, a beach escape to the InterContinenal Moorea, a trek entitled  Trails of the Ancients that pairs the landscape and history of the area with onboard lecturer Mark Eddowes’ expertise on an island expedition.

No matter how a cruise guest chooses to spend their time, the natural beauty of the long deep bays, lush volcanic peaks, and gorgeous blue-green lagoon will certainly please even the pickiest of travelers.
