Paul Gauguin Cruises, operator of the Paul Gauguin, and the 88-guest Tere Moana, announces that world-renowned oceanographer and environmentalist Jean-Michel Cousteau will guest host four sailings on the Gauguin in 2016.

For more than 60 years, he along with his father, the legendary Jacques Cousteau, and his family, have been part of the greatest exploration of the oceans in all of history. In 1999, Cousteau founded the Ocean Futures Society to explore global oceans, inspiring and educating 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.

During voyages on the Gauguin, Cousteau will offer a series of lectures with videos of his work in the world’s oceans and accompany guests on several dives. Voyages featuring Cousteau are:

10-night Society Islands & Tuamotus cruise:  March 2, 2016

10-night Society Islands & Tuamotus cruise:  June 1, 2016

10-night Society Islands & Tuamotus cruise:  Sept. 21, 2016

14-night Marquesas, Tuamotus & Society Islands cruise:  Nov. 19, 2016

Also available in 2016 is Cousteau’s Ambassadors of the Environment Youth Program, which introduces young travelers (ages 9-17) to the natural wonders of French Polynesia through interactive, hands-on experiences with island ecosystems. The program is available on summer sailings from June through August and on select holiday cruises for a nominal fee of $329-$399 per child based on itinerary.
