Let the magic of the Marquesas captivate you – this voyage on Aranui 5 truly is a journey of a lifetime!

Discover the fascinating history, culture and scenic beauty of French Polynesia’s remote Marquesas Islands with Aranui 5.

Spend your days enjoying fresh local produce, watching the freighter’s crew in action as they unload essential supplies to these remote locations, exploring and discovering the islands with the shore excursions (all included in the price) and join in the evening fun as the Aranui team bring out the ukuleles and guitars and sing and dance the night away.

Solo Travellers

The Aranui 5 is perfect for solo travellers with plenty of opportunity to meet other guests and a friendly and welcoming Tahitian crew, yet there is ample space to find your own quiet nook or time to yourself. Aranui 5 welcomes many solo travellers and they offer a matching service, in an Ocean View Stateroom, where you can be paired with another person of the same gender to avoid paying the single occupancy surcharge.
