Paul Gauguin Cruises Offers Environmental Youth Progam on French Polynesian Voyages

Paul Gauguin Cruises is offering oceanographer and environmentalist Jean-Michel Cousteau’s Ambassadors of the Environment Youth Program on several voyages this summer.

Jean-Michel Cousteau, son of Jacques Cousteau, and his Ocean Futures Society created the Ambassadors of the Environment Youth Program, which is a program that introduces young travelers to French Polynesia through direct, hands-on, interactive learning.

Under the guidance of expert Ocean Future Society naturalists, young Ambassadors (ages 9-17) will explore coral reefs, learn about volcanic islands and forest ecology, experience Polynesian culture, hike rainforest trails, visit ancient Polynesian temples and more. Parents have an option to join their children on eco-excursions and other activities aboard and ashore.

The Ambassadors of the Environment Youth Program is available on summer voyages and is also available on select holiday cruises for a nominal fee of $299 per child.
