Island Escape Cruises is a market leader in small ship cruising in the South Pacific. We are delighted to introduce our boutique vessel “Island Passage” and intimate itineraries in Tahiti.



Private Yacht-style Cruising with Friends!

Our cruises do not cover large ocean distances. Instead, we explore inside the magnificent sheltered coastlines, inlets and lagoons where the larger ships simply cannot attempt to enter. Cruising is limited to approx 3-hours per day which allows guests to enjoy days at play and relaxing full nights at anchor.



Island Passage is very large for just 24 passengers in a child free environment. With very spacious cabins all with en-suites, an enormous interior dining and saloon area plus an expansive covered aft deck. The result is feeling more like being on-board a luxury private yacht.



Oversized suites and staterooms, each with generous en-suite, wide halls and expansive decks await the discerning traveller. The guest’s experience is designed around the little things that matter… fine linens, fresh flowers, nightly turn-down service with chocolates and bottled water to name a few.


Exceptional food and fine wines are an essential part of your cruise. Simply put, every meal has to be magnificent. Local seafood, maybe even some that you caught yourself is featured daily. You’ll enjoy many gourmet delicacies all presented by chefs with a strong European flair. Our on-board wine cellar is brimming with a selection of award winning French, Australian and new Zealand wines.


We have a range of included activities available such as snorkeling, kayaks, paddle boards, fishing equipment and island tenders, hand chosen shore excursions and even a helicopter* pad for those more adventurous who wish to explore further afield. In-stateroom movies and a well-stocked library is also available. (*Helicopter flights are at an additional cost)



Island Passage is a 42-metre catamaran that boasts stability, safety, space and comfort. A professional crew of 10 pamper guests over three decks. Staterooms all feature individual air conditioning and a TV with on-demand movies. All beverages including full bar service is included on our Tahitian Affair departures.



In addition to our scheduled 7 & 10 night cruise departures, the Island Passage is available for group and charter opportunities. Whether it is a special interest itinerary, tailor-made departure or simply one of our existing cruise itineraries, Island Escape Cruises can accommodate your group.
