The turquoise seas of the South Pacific present a colourful parade of marine life, from magnificent parrot fish and clownfish to stately sea turtles. Your first dive into these crystal-clear waters will spoil you for anything else under the sun, or the seven seas.
Watersports are one of the highlights of the Polynesian experience, and the m/s Paul Gauguin has been designed and constructed to take full advantage of these irresistible waters. With its retractable, onboard Watersports Marina that brings you down to sea level, you can hop aboard a windsurfer, launch a kayak, or embark on a Zodiac for optional diving adventures.
Even if you've never been diving, you can take advantage of onboard scuba lessons. The m/s Paul Gauguin is the only luxury ship in French Polynesia to offer PADI certification onboard for novice divers as well as classes at all levels, from snorkeling to advanced scuba diving techniques, supervised by its own staff of PADI dive masters. For the convenience of guests, all necessary equipment, including an air compressor to refill scuba tanks, is onboard.
