Papeete Cruises

Papeete is Paradise on Earth

Amazing Papeete on the island of Tahiti is the capital of French Polynesia in the South Pacific. If you’re lucky enough to visit, you’ll experience beautiful lagoons, majestic volcanoes, and amazing black and white sand beaches. Snorkel, surf, swim, or jet ski to your heart’s delight.

Papeete also offers unique shopping opportunities — hunt for black pearls at Musee de la Perle or Mapuru a Paraita market. Go downtown for Tahitian goods, such as monoi oil, vanilla beans, and vibrant pareos.

Papeete’s Vai'ete Square and seaside promenade turns into lively nightlife with music and international cuisine via gourmet food trucks. For a fun day trip, the ferry to Mo'orea.
