Pacific Island Cruises

Connect with an Adventure Specialist

The Pacific Islands and Polynesia span over 7,000 miles from Hawaii to Rapa Nui and over 4,000 from Rapa Nui to New Zealand, comprising some 30,000 islands in the Pacific Ocean. Pacific Island cruises are a traveler’s paradise—and not just for the tropical landscapes and underwater diversity. Everywhere, you are greeted by warm smiles of a culture where wealth is measured not by how much they have but by how much they can give away. With limited air travel to small islands, there is no better way to explore the vast Pacific than on our South Pacific small ship cruises.

Pacific Island cruises encompass a wide range of exciting geography amid pristine cobalt-blue waters. The spectacularly beautiful land formations dotted among its boundaries make for outstanding adventure cruise destinations. Explore dramatic volcanic and coral islands while having the unique chance of meeting many of the locals whose rich cultural heritage is evident in fascinating archaeological ruins. South Pacific small ship cruises are the ultimate way to explore the Pacific Islands and Polynesia.

Why Choose a Pacific Island Cruise

Our Pacific Island cruises explore far-off islands that only a small ship or yacht can reach, offering the perfectly intimate mode of transport and ability to be ever-ready to observe the marine life, sunsets and coastlines. Cruise in the company of expert naturalist guides with daily off vessel explorations to actively experience the Pacific Islands up close. With our diverse selection of South Pacific small ship cruise options, let the AdventureSmith team guide you through the sprinkling of islands that reside in this incredible destination. Pacific Island cruises by small ship focus on remote unexplored regions away from big ship crowds. Visit Hawaii as you never have before exploring several islands while never missing a sunset. A truly cultural experience, Papua New Guinea cruises offer a look into a world that very few outsiders see. French Polynesia, including Tahiti and Bora Bora, focus on explorations of secluded atolls, lush volcanic peaks and forest, pristine coral reef, remote cultures and infinite shades of azure among off-the-beaten-path islands of the South Pacific. Rapa Nui, also known as Easter Island, is cloaked in mystery with its widely known but seldomly visited, intriguing moai statues. We are Pacific Island cruise specialists with the perfect small ship for your interests, style and budget.

Pacific Island Cruises

As I drift off to sleep I begin to dream of the amazing experiences that I couldn't even have imagined only seven days ago. I dream of diving with manta rays, of Pele, the goddess of fire, of paddle boarding at Shark's Fin Cove and swimming in the cool water under the cascading falls of Moâ'oula.

Pacific Island Cruises

What’s the first question a newly-married couple gets? “Where did you guys go on your Honeymoon?” We are outdoorsy and adventurous. We enjoy hiking and getting out there, we want to experience things that others could only read about. We didn't want to completely rough it on our honeymoon but we also didn't want the resort or the 2,000 person cruise ship.
