Paul Gauguin Offers Cousteau Youth Program
Paul Gauguin Cruises offers young passengers a chance to get hands-on experiences with the under water world of French Polynesia with their Ambassadors of the Environment Youth Program. The program is spearheaded by Jean-Michel Cousteau, son of Jacques Costeau, who has carried on his father’s legacy by committing his life to educating young and old alike about the wonders of the sea.
The Ambassadors of the Environment Youth Program invites ship passengers aged 9-17 to go underwater to see coral reefs and wildlife and to travel the land visiting the rainforest trails and ancient Polynesian temples. The program also includes education on the islands’ big exports pearls and vanilla as well as explaining interesting local phenomena like how volcanoes become coral atolls.
This program is available on all Paul Gauguin Cruises from June to August. Parents are always invited and encouraged to join their children for any of the programs activities during their sailing.
