Island Escape Cruises


The Island Passage is a 140-ft. luxury ship that was designed specifically to explore tropical locations. With only 24 guests on board at a time, you will discover a perfect environment for experiencing the islands of Tahiti that is not possible on a larger vessel.

The Island Escape Cruise is typically enjoyed by active adventurers, independent travelers, photographers, families and corporate groups. With the guests’ penchant for adventure and exploration, the steel catamaran is outfitted with three motor boats for exploring the lagoons and venturing ashore. The Island Passage ensures that guests can easily experience all that Tahiti has to offer by providing single and double kayaks, stand up paddleboards, snorkel gear, reef shoes and a wide selection of fishing gear.

Each large en-suite cabin features fine linens, a selection of South Pacific toiletries, nightly turndown service, fresh flowers, and an adept crew that is ready to take care of any need that arises. From Solo Cabins to Ocean Suites, there is a room category to fit every traveler’s wishes.

Breakfast and lunch are usually served on the deck terrace so that guests don’t have to miss a minute of the beautiful scenery surrounding them. Although dinner is served inside, guests do have the option of dining under the stars on the deck terrace as well.

Island Escape Cruises believes that exceptional food and wine are an essential part of any cruise and offers a culinary experience that is beyond compare. With the rich marine life and produce located in French Polynesia, local ingredients are featured daily. Some evenings may even feature seafood caught by a guest earlier in the day! In addition to seafood, guests can look forward to lamb, beef, poultry, fresh produce, and award-winning cheeses – all prepared with a European flair.

Finally, the Island Passage has carefully curated an on-board wine cellar that is brimming with a selection of award-winning French, Australian, and New Zealand wines that is constantly updated with new releases along with personal selections from staff members’ favorite vineyards.

Island Escape Cruises has created an intimate, yet inspiring, experience for travelers looking to immerse themselves in the culture and activities of the islands in a completely unique and authentic fashion. Sample the romance of dinner under the stars, the discovery of stunning beauty while paddling a kayak on the lagoon, swimming with turtles, wandering exquisite beaches or simply relaxing on deck while enjoying cocktails as the sun slowly merges with the sea – welcome to Island Passage’s tropical paradise.
