Paul Gauguin Cruises announced it will host its popular Moana Explorer Program for younger guests and their families on 21 dedicated summer and holiday sailings in 2023 and 2024.
Tailored to children ages seven to 15, the complimentary program is offered in collaboration with Te mana o te moana, a South Pacific marine education and conservation foundation, and is designed to engage children with hands-on, interactive activities both on board and ashore showcasing the natural wonders and unique cultures of the South Pacific.
“2023 marks our third year of our exclusive partnership with Te mana o te moana, which has proven to be very popular with our guests, and we are thrilled to offer this immersive program again in 2023 and 2024,” said Susan Robison, General Manager, Sales and Marketing, for Paul Gauguin Cruises.
Guests can enjoy activities from visiting a sea turtle care center to playing real-life beach “Survivor” games, hiking volcanic mountains, and snorkeling in lagoons. Depending on the itinerary, guests might explore underwater life, conduct water experiments, create natural jewelry, go on a treasure hunt, learn about Tahitian culture, discover island legends and geology, design a Polynesian tattoo, and more.
“It is a special delight to foster an appreciation of Tahitian culture, wildlife, and wilderness among the guests of Paul Gauguin Cruises,” said Hélène Duran, General Manager at Te mana o te moana.
