Things to Do on a Cruise to South Pacific

 

The islands of the South Pacific are like a string of gems, or more appropriately, pearls; Tahiti being the centerpiece of the necklace. These beautiful, secluded and peaceful islands welcome you with their Polynesian traditions. They lure you with their pristine beaches and they’ll excite you with their natural wonders, wildlife and watersports. Highlighted below are some of our favorite things to do when cruising to the South Pacific and Tahiti:

 


Pentecost Island in Vanuatu
  • The people of Pentecost Island in Vanuatu may have invented the action sport of bungee jumping. Here you can see the local boys jump from daring heights with a vine as their only protection.
     
  • The waters surrounding Tahiti are teeming with riches, literally. This region is famous for producing beautiful black pearls. Take a tour of a pearl farm and purchase the perfect souvenir to remember your experience in Tahiti.
     
Couples massage on the beach
  • Swim with whales off the coast of Tonga. Along with swimming with whales, the water in Tonga is perfect for diving and snorkeling as it offers a variety of curiosities, from the underwater caves to the colorful coral and beautiful fish.
     
  • Forget all your cares and get a massage. You can even get a massage on the beach where you’ll hear the smooth lapping sounds of the waves and feel the warmth of the sun as your masseuse works out any leftover stress.
     
Fire dancers in Moorea
  • See fire dancers and learn about some of the cultural traditions of Polynesia at the Tiki Village Cultural Center in Moorea. This is a chance to learn about the local lifestyles in a typical Polynesian town.
     
  • Check out the artwork of post-impressionist Paul Gauguin who moved to Tahiti in 1895 after an earlier visit. Many of his most famous works depict the island’s natives.
