Finding Paradise in the Marquesas Islands with Aranui 5 Cruises.

French Polynesia is by far one of the most beautiful places in the world I’ve been, and the Aranui 5 cruise is a fantastic way to see some of the more remote islands of French Polynesia (Marquesas Islands) like Fakarava, Nuku Hiva, Ua Pou, Marama, Bora bora, Fatu hiva, Hiva Oa, and Ua Huka.

Part cargo ship, part luxury liner, the Aranui 5 cruise is unlike any other I’ve experienced. It’s utilitarian function to bring much needed supplies to these remote outposts afords intrepid travellers to opportunity to see places not normally tread by the average instagrammer. These are wild islands, with locals who keep traditions alive not for the tourists, but for their own pride of culture. It’s full of beautiful lore, legend and history, and to be able to step back in time to these pristine island paradises is a rare experience indeed.

This is just a little teaser film of some of the experiences I’m going to be sharing in this upcoming 10 part series to hopefully give you a glimpse into this wonderfully rare corner of the world.

All aboard the Aranui 5: Papeete, Tahiti to the Marquesas Islands.

This was a trip for the books … Get Lost Magazine sent me to Tahiti to cruise with the legendary Aranui to the remote Polynesian Marquesas islands. What’s so special about the Aranui is that it’s half cargo ship, half luxury liner, the only boat of its kind. That’s how they are able to bring tourist to these absolutely remote islands that are simply not touristed by anyone else. You get to see Polynesian life as it happens naturally, which is a rare and special treat.

Make no mistake, as a passenger you are pampered and treated to some of the best cruising in the world. 5 star accomodations, amazing cuisine, shopping, entertainment, you name it. It’s a very special trip, and just watching this video makes me smile thinking of all the fantastic friends I made that quickly became family to me.

If you’re interested, check out a few of the other videos I’ve done that highlight the ship, and the different island destinations we hit up. It was in a word… magical.
