Cruises from Rurutu
Rurutu is an island in the Austral archipelago of French Polynesia, in the centre of the Pacific hemisphere. The population of two thousand subsists on fishing, some agriculture, as well as the growing tourism industry. Steep sea cliffs of ancient coral are riddled with numerous caves, so not surprisingly Rurutu is unique among islands in French Polynesia in that its historic inhabitants were cave-dwellers. As the island has a fringiing reef, the island is also well-known for whale watching.
