Itinerary Overview

Uncover the tropical beauty and important cultural history of the South Seas


The archipelagos of the South Pacific have defined our notion of “island paradise” since Robert Louis Stevenson told his tales and Paul Gauguin captured Polynesia in paint. As we sail from Tahiti’s lush volcanic crags to the sparkling white shores of Fiji, discover a fascinating geology and a stunning wealth of bird species and marine life. Dive or snorkel among underwater canyons and tunnels formed from lava. Meet island communities. And explore the far-flung reef systems of the extraordinary archipelagos of the South Pacific.

Highlights:

  • Visit the marae complex of Marae Taputapuātea, a UNESCO World Heritage site and one of the most important cultural sites in Polynesia
  • Snorkel, swim or stand-up paddleboard in the clear, aqua lagoons and reefs of French Polynesia
  • Spot rare and colorful birds and flowers on Fiji’s spectacular “Garden Island,” Taveuni, and in the rain forests of Samoa 
  • Visit remote island villages and discover rich cultural histories, including the tradition of fire-walking in Fiji
