Papeete, Tahiti, Society Islands
Cruises from Papeete depart year-round.

Stunning shorefronts backed by lush mountainous terrain greet travelers in Papeete, the capital of French Polynesia. This Tahitian paradise is the place to lounge on white-sand beaches, go scuba diving among coral gardens and snorkel alongside manta rays, sea turtles, dolphins and some 20 species of sharks. From July to November, marine safaris deliver up-close encounters with migrating humpback whales. The city, which can be explored on foot or via Segway tours, features attractions like the Presidential Palace; the Notre Dame Cathedral, with its stately red spire; and the 75,000-square-foot Papeete Market, where you can sample Polynesian delicacies such as suckling pig and purchase necklaces, sculptures, locally sourced cosmetic products and more. An e-bike excursion through the foothills of Aorai Mountain provides views of the Pacific Ocean, while a sunset cruise across a pristine lagoon brings your day to a memorable close.
