    Located on the island of Oahu, capital of Hawaii, Honolulu, offers its visitors a different image of the American dream: young women wrapped in sarongs, colourful cocktails and coconut trees. Here, the sun is divine, the waves a surfers’ dream, and its volcano, Diamond Head, are all features that will win your heart. The view from Diamond Head is simply incredible. But Honolulu is also about art museums, cycling tracks, the famous Waikiki beach and a tourist district with festive night-time animation. As for amateurs of history, the Iolani and Ali-iolani Hale palaces provide insight into the singular destiny of this State.

    Patrick Brissac

    Patrick Brissac

    Patrick BRISSAC was born in Guadeloupe, as a grand-son of fishermen he naturally turned to the sea. Avid viewer of submarine movies and adventures of the Calypso, he turned to scuba diving.At the start this hobby, which was only leisure activity, enabled him to discover many foreign destinations, such as Maldives, the red sea, and closer to France: the Méditerranée.

    In 1986, he decided to share his passion with novice divers and became a diving instructor. He successfully obtained the french national scuba diving instructor's certificate from the French youth ministery, and the French Federation of scuba diving.. Beside pedagogy, submarine biology also became a passion.

    In 1990, he became PADI course director, which means diving instructors’ trainer in the famous PADI international organization. This allowed him to transfer his knowledge and passion to newly qualified divers trainers.

    In 1991, seduced by the Ponant Company’s project, he boarded a sailboat Le Ponant , which allowed him to come back in west indies and make passagers discover the seabed’s beauty from his roots.

    From that period onward, he became a manager and a consultant for Ponant Company’s scuba diving on board while he used to manage his own diving center in Marseille, his new home.

    He’s now expanding this activity for the company's fleet of boats to new destinations while he’s presenting “the diving according to Ponant”.

    Possibility of withdrawal in case of force majeure.

    Important information

    • During these voyages, we are offering you an entirely sea-based crossing, there are no ports of call (except possibly for technical reasons), nor any onboard entertainment, and no transfers provided. Likewise, the catering is less elaborate than for other cruises. Although no entertainment is organized, you are free to discover what life is like aboard our ships by spending time with the crew who will be happy to share their experiences with you.
    • To facilitate embarkation, we suggest that you spend the night before departure in the city that your ship leaves from. Similarly, on the day of disembarkation we advise you to reserve a flight that leaves at the end of that day or the day after your arrival.
    • All administrative information is given for information only. Regarding health regulations and advice, you need to contact your doctor.
    • We remind you that all our ships, with the exception of Le Ponant, have a doctor on board and medical facilities. However, these cannot, under any circumstances, be compared to any medical structure on land. Given the remote areas in which we will be sailing for a number of days, safety requirements mean that we are obliged to ask each passenger signing up for this program to provide us, no more than 45 days before departure, with a medical certificate from their GP, as well as the completed medical questionnaire received during registration.
    • These cruises depend on there being a minimum number of passengers. Your voyage will therefore be reconfirmed 45 days prior to your departure at the latest.
