Watersports Marina

Dive into the blue and come face to face with a colorful parade of marine life, from magnificent parrot fish and clownfish to stately sea turtles. Your first dive into crystal-clear waters will spoil you for anything else under the sun-or the seven seas.

Watersports from the marinaWatersports are a highlight of the Polynesian experience, and the m/s Paul Gauguin is constructed to take full advantage of these irresistible waters, with accessibility to ports and adventures that other ships can't offer. The ship's small footprint enables it to navigate lagoons that larger ships would never dare to enter. And our retractable, onboard Watersports Marina brings you down to sea level, where you can hop aboard a windsurfer, launch a kayak, try waterskiing, or embark on our Zodiac for optional diving adventures.

Even if you've never been diving, you can take advantage of our 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 our own staff of PADI dive masters. For the convenience of our guests, all necessary equipment, including an air compressor to refill scuba tanks, is onboard.
