For over thirty years, Aranui Cruises has been taking explorers and adventurers to the remote Marquesas Islands.
Aranui is not just another cruise. As a mixed freighter and passenger vessel, our main mission is to deliver provisions to what is considered the most remote inhabited archipelago in the world.
With all Polynesian crew onboard, we bring you to the heart of these islands' strong culture and traditions on a 14-day voyage.
Aranui is all about adventure and excursions include hikes, visit to small villages and archaeological sites, as well as meals in local restaurants.
At the time of its first sailing and for many years after, the Aranui was the only ship to bring travelers to the Marquesas, putting them on the map and creating an interest in this little known archipelago.
Over the past thirty years, it has helped revitalize the long forgotten Marquesan culture and contribute to the local economy by introducing these islands to nearly 45,000 international passengers, thereby establishing itself as the premier and most in-depth cruise to the Marquesas.
Aranui Adventure Cruises is a proud member of the Adventure Travel Trade Association (ATTA).
