Eclipse Cruise Destination: South Pacific

 eclipse cruiseIn our never-ending search for the best total solar eclipse experiences, TravelQuest journeys to the ends of the Earth. And if the eclipse track crosses over the 70 percent of our planet that’s covered in water, we’ll even charter a small, nimble ship that can get us exactly where we need to be: not that there’s ever just one viewing spot along the path of the Moon’s shadow. There will always be other places to observe the classic features of tot ...Show more

Among the stunning islands of French Polynesia, a collection of more than 1,800 volcanic atolls strewn across the South Pacific, the largest and most renowned is Tahiti, “Queen of the Pacific” – and you’ll soon see why that royal title is so well deserved. Blending spectacular natural beauty with a fascinating history, it’s the kind of exotic locale that immediately comes to mind when you hear “island paradise.” Landing at Tahiti’s Faa’a International Airport (code: PPT), you can take a taxi directly to the cruise terminal pier and our waiting ship, the M/S Paul Gauguin. Embarkation is scheduled from 15:00 (3:00 pm), and we sail at 23:00 (11:00 pm).

High above the roar of the Pacific surf, the mountains of Hiva Oa are almost perpetually shrouded in mist.

The main town, Atuona, is a favorite port of call for yachters dropping anchor in Traitors Bay. Paul Gauguin, who captured many scenes of village life in his paintings, lived here in his final years and is buried nearby.

WHAT TO EXPECT ON ECLIPSE DAY 2020

by Eclipse Meteorologist Jay Anderson

During the sunrise total solar eclipse on December 14, 2020, the Moon’s shadow will mainly pass over the Pacific Ocean – including a point north of the untamed beauty of the Marquesas Islands. The Sun will actually rise with a broad notch missing from its disk, as the partial phasesof the eclipse will have begun 20 minutes before the solar disk crests the horizon. Just over 33 minutes later, the Moon will cover the whole of the solar surface and totality will begin. As darkness descends, Mercury will hang just 3 degrees above the Sun while brilliant Venus shines from a 30 degrees altitude. The eclipse is a short one—about 38 seconds—just enough time to complete photographs and enjoy a view of this spectacle and its planetary attendants.

Short eclipses showcase the Sun’s chromosphere by giving the dark Moon a brilliant red border that stretches most of the way around the lunar limb. The chromosphere is the region where the Sun feeds energy into the corona—a region that is still a bit of a mystery. Longer eclipses show the chromosphere for only a few seconds at the start and end of totality, but for this one, it should be visible for the whole of the 38 seconds.

Low-level eclipses also come with a marvelous shadow stretching from the Sun – an ephemeral connection between the observer and the solar system. Time-lapse video will show the black circle of the eclipsed Sun moving across the width of the shadow during totality, a spectacle that is not seen at eclipses where the Sun is higher in the sky.

One of the big questions about low-altitude eclipses is the effect of clouds along the horizon. The Pacific viewing site for this eclipse has been chosen to take advantage of the low cloudiness associated with the South Pacific anticyclone (high-pressure area) that lingers just north of the shadow track. It’s a good spot: analysis of the past 13 years of satellite data shows that in 8 of them the eclipse would have been visible from the viewing site, and three more would require a movement of 10 miles or thereabouts. Only two of the thirteen had extensive cloudiness that would probably have clouded out the spectacle.

There’s more to luxury than being pampered; it’s having the freedom to do whatever you wish – or opt to do nothing at all. For the next two days and nights, you can lounge poolside, relax in the spa, finally dig into that book you’ve been wanting to read, maybe even expand your knowledge in one of our fascinating expert talks, or just watch the seabirds diving and spiraling in our wake.

Moorea, often compared to James Michener’s mythical Bali Hai, appears on the horizon like a lost island from some classic fantasy novel, its volcanic peaks rising like a line of broken teeth above the palm-lined beaches of Cook’s and Opunohu bays. And beneath the waves, in waters justly celebrated by divers, you’ll encounter an even more magical world of dolphins, tuna, sharks (from a safe distance) and schools of iridescent fish.

A Note About Fuel

In the uncertain, often volatile oil market, it is difficult to predict long-term fuel costs, and more specifically, costs at the time of the voyage. Our prices are based on the prevailing fuel rates at the time of the brochure publication, which is well in advance of departure. While we will do everything possible to maintain our prices, if fuel prices increase significantly at or before the time of the voyage, it may be necessary to institute a fuel surcharge.
