A must - absolutely Incredible day!
Laura_T
, Jun 2022
Exceptional day. Tour reps were accommodating- we arrived via ferry and they picked us up and dropped us off at no extra charge. I'd recommend bringing your own equipment that you've tested beforehand, the equipment provided was in good condition but the mask kept leaking. Seeing the sea life via glass bottom was nice. It was a choppy day so looking down through the glass bottom did make me a bit queasy. There was a fun and I believe unique way of snorkeling - we were paired up and then grabbed a rope trailing the boat while the it was moving- it was quite fun. We also stopped at a few spots to snorkel on our own. The rays were Incredible, so friendly- we were able to touch them frequently. The reef sharks were a bit unnerving at first, yet they merely swam around, we didn't touch them. We finished the day with a wonderful lunch and more snorkeling. French is definitely the preferred language- it was difficult to understand our captain at times- yet it didn't detract from the beauty and adventure. The group that prepared lunch were very easy to understand and did a fantastic job of preparing and serving. I Highly Recommend this tour. A wonderful way to spend the day. The water - it was unbelievable - absolutely incredible and pretty warm. We went in their winter and it seemed a pleasant temperature.

Fantastic trip. Very helpful crew. Has a great time today. The snorkeling was good and swimming with the rays was thoroughly enjoyable. The food on the private motu was also excellent. Thoroughly recommend this trip.

My wife and I had a great time. Fantastic way to celebrate our anniversary. Swam with turtles, sharks, and stingrays. The captain spoke English and French very well. Having local food on their family island was very relaxing. A must to go to in Morrea.

Fantastic Half Day Tour on the water in Moorea

This tour is a great way to spend a half day on Moorea. You can take advantage of three unique snorkeling spots, or enjoy the water from the comfort of the boat. Topped off with a delicious lunch on the private motu, we thoroughly enjoyed our day! Captain and crew were very knowledgeable about the island and made the excursion a delight.

I went on this tour with my mom, who uses a wheelchair. My mom could have gone in the water with me, but decided to stay on the boat. She still had a great time as Kenae (our guide), Yanick (the boat captain), and Captain Taina made sure my mom had the opportunity to meet sting rays and to have a full, accommodated experience. Captain Taina sent a driver to pick us up from the hotel. The dock was dirt, sand, and pavement. The sand was a bit tricky to manuver for the wheelchair but Kenae was quick to help. The boat ride was calm. I struggle with motion sickness but I didn't want to wear the motion sickness patch in the water and the non-prescription medicine doesn't work for me. Sitting at the front of the boat, facing the wind, was enough to keep the sickness away. Our stops included snorkeling with green turtles, black tipped sharks, sting rays, and countless georgeous fishes! We also saw underwater tikis! Kenae guided the tour in French and in English to accommodate all guests. The underwater tikis are a tribute to the culture that missionaries tried to exterminate. The tikis are near a church that was built on the foundation of a temple the missionaries destroyed. The glass bottom boat meant my mom could see on the boat as clearly as I could see it in the water! Yanick drove the boat next to turtles that were surfacing so my mom could enjoy them, and Kenae brought gentle sting rays to the boat to meet my mom. Kenae had a fish and shark reference guide aboard the boat for the guests to use at our leisure. For lunch, Kenae and Yanick carried my mom ashore. Kenae and Yanick prepared an incredibly delicious lunch from scratch, including home-grown ingredients and home-baked goods. The lunch alone was worth the price of the tour! Lunch was on Captain Taina's family private island. The tidepools on the private island were full of wildlife, including eels, baby octopus, and freshly-molted crabs. Kenae introduced us to some of his wildlife friends, including a friendly but shy eel. After lunch, Kenae and Yanick carried my mom back to the boat. Then it was back to the dock and a short ride back to the hotel. We will book this tour again the next time we come!!! What a phenomenal experience!!! Not to mention, Captain Taina is the first woman captain for a tourist boat and saved a turtle from poachers! I didn't know that going into the tour, but it made me even more glad to tour with Captain Taina! Equipment needed: - swimsuit - face mask (covid safe) Equipment recommended: - snorkel (some are available on board to share) - towel, preferrably quick dry (no towel service aboard) - hand sanitizer - underwater camera - sunblock Pro-Tip: - bring your own snorkel and practice before you go. My snorkel has a valve, which is great for expelling water. However, quick breathes draw water into the valve. And, I quickly found out that when I'd get excited from seeing a turtle or shark, I would gasp! It's ok, just spit it out and enjoy the wildlife! - if you bring a GoPro, bring at least a second battery. Other guests and myself both ran out of charge. - reapply sunblock between water entries My attempt at phonetic pronunciations: Ia orana (hello) = Ya-Oh-Rah-Na Mauruuru (thank you) = Mah-ru-ru Mauruuru roa (thank you very much) = Mah-ru-ru row-ah

Tout simplement génial. Nous avions déjà fait une sortie similaire mais celle ci sort de l’ordinaire grâce à une méthode géniale pour voir les tortues et un repas vraiment excellent sur un motu entièrement privé. Je conseil à faire absolument .
