Paul Gauguin Cruises Tahiti Ambassadors of the EnvironmentPaul Gauguin Cruises sails around the areas of Tahiti, French Polynesia and the South Pacific. This luxury cruise line is amazing and will delight family cruisers ready to fly to Tahiti for a cruise of a lifetime.  A family of marine lovers will take special note of the Ambassadors of the Environment Youth Program offered by Paul Gauguin Cruises.

The Ambassadors of the Environment youth program created by Jean-Michel Cousteau is for young people aged 9 to 19.  The program introduces young travelers to the extraordinary natural wonders of French Polynesia.  Young cruisers receive direct, hands-on, interactive experiences with knowledge of marine and island ecosystems. Young Ambassadors will explore coral reefs, hike rainforest trails and visit marae (ancient Polynesian temples). They’ll learn how black pearls and vanilla are cultivated, how volcanic islands become coral atolls, and how to paddle an outrigger canoe. Parents are encouraged to join children on eco-excursions and other activities aboard and ashore.

Jean-Michel CousteauJean-Michel Cousteau, environmental advocate and son of the legendary Jacques Cousteau, is dedicated to the preservation of our global oceans. His program inspires and educates people throughout the world to act responsibly for their protection, documenting the critical connection between humanity and nature, and celebrating the ocean’s vital importance to the survival of all life on our planet.  This program is available on all Paul Gauguin cruises from June through August 2010 and on select holiday cruises for a nominal fee of $269 per child.
