Missed 1/4 of tour
, Jun 2022
Not being picked up at hotel. Missed 1/4 of tour because they could not find my reservation from Viator. So, I can not give a rating above average.
BEST tour on the island!
, Jul 2021
This was the best day trip experience. We were celebrating our son's 12th birthday and we couldn't have asked for a better tour. Captain Kaha and all the crew were amazing. They taught us about the island, explained about the history and were able to answer any questions we had. They were great when handling the stingrays, sharks and explaining about the different fish. The island BBQ was amazing and we loved the vibe. Definitely a tour you need to do while on the island.
Amazing experience

Swimming with rays and sharks was an amazing experience. Also the lunch afterwards at the motu was great.

Pamela K

Excellent tour. Lots of snorkeling opportunities too. 2nd year in a row we took this tour and really enjoyed the time allocated to experience the snorkeling and food and Motu experience. Food included salads, breads, chicken, cooked and raw fish. Everything was fresh and very clean and neat. Well prepared for every taste.

Good trip, but too much time spent on the island where there was basically no beach and no where to walk. Food served was good. Swim with the sharks and rays was entertaining.

This was an amazing tour, we swam with sharks and stingrays for about an hour. We could touch them as the tour guides had feed for them. Then we had a typical Polynesian meal with a demo of various way to prepare fish, open coconuts for the milk. We really had a good time.

The tour was good but at the picnic the guide kept going into the woods to smoke ganja. He and some of the servers finally just started smoking it in front of the guests and they quit going into the woods. Their eyes were glossy and they were laughing ridiculously. They were very obviously high and as I said, they quit trying to hide it after about awhile.

Excellent trip. The scenery is absolutely amazing. The waters are pristine and one cannot describe the colours. The swim with the rays and sharks was a good experience. The crew on the boat were very friendly and kept us entertained. The beach lunch was good with a good variety of food. I enjoyed the BBQ'ed marlin steaks the most.

Talk about amazing, put it on your bucket list, the tour was well organised, once we made contact at the dock it all fell into place. Short bus ride to the boat and educated along the way about there cultures, places of worship, landmarks. Boat ride 40min to where we swam with sharks, rays and other sea life. Our guide made us feel very comfortable, had us laughing most of the time. Lunch, they put on a local feed and they picked my wife out of the crowd to help prepare the fresh salmon. The video pictures we have takin will remain with us for ever. We will be back with the rest of the family. Well done to the tour company, to the guide hope to see you again.
We are rating this tour as Amazing...
, Oct 2017
We are rating this tour as Amazing even though rain and wind was the weather of the day. We've all had to learn to take the weather as is, haven't we? We were taken to an area of sharks that are fed by tour operators and are harmless. What a thrill to be in the same water with them. There were also rays which were very large. A beach area is where a bar-b-que lunch was served. The area is not fancy but there is a covered area where they cook the meat chicken and fish and served salads, etc. They provided refreshments while waiting for the lunch to be served. Locals also provided their music all the while we were there. The owner of this particular business looked out for our comfort and helped in any way he could -- always aware. He was also the boat operator. We are sorry we didn't obtain his name. He had others helping also with the beach area. The only recommendation we would make is to have curtains on the sides of the boat for rainy windy days, like we had. The sun came out mid-afternoon!!

Sorry for the delay in my response...My husband and I had an excellent time on our adventure with Moorea Lagoon Cruise!!! The cruise itself was amazing, beautiful locations and the staff was great. We awesome swimming with the sting rays and sharks, incredible experience. Then to follow up with that awesome picnic lunch was the best, worth every penny. Should we ever have the opportunity to return to the island we would definitely seek out Moorea Lagoon Cruise for another adventure.

Great tour. Siki was a terrific tour guide - informative and entertaining. Make sure you get him as the guide. Snorkeling with the rays and sharks was a fun time. Not intimidating at all. Water is waist-deep, so you don't really need to snorkel to enjoy it. Lunch on the motu was very good.

Two similar boats of above description. First stop was lagoon in water wading height with lots of black tip sharks and large stingrays. Then a cruise to a motu island. Organized fun with Siki your host entertaining before lunch. Rum punch and beer provided. Bar-B-Q chicken and pork. Delicious salads. Rest rooms available. A local group of musicians performed. A very fun day and experience.

This was a very well planned tour with great staffing. The price was very reasonable. We were on a cruise ship and would not have taken a cruise ship tour. Viator was prompt, efficient, fun, great sightseeing, good food and drinks too! The time allocated was excellent as well. I was a bit hesitant about this one BUT all and all it did not fail in any way and exceeded our expectations! I did not hear a negative word from any of the other passengers either. We had fish and salads and grilled chicken and beer and spiked very little spike to it but good bread, salad and a very entertaining crew who were also polite and very watchful of time and making sure everyone had a wonderful time. Try it this is fantastic, so excellent pick for Moorea!

We enjoyed our experience very much. Our guide was interesting, helpful, creative and delightful.The picnic was very good but a little too long for our tastes. Stan and Betty Muessle

, May 2015
Great trip, very entertaining guide and friendly staff. The various tour providers all gravitate to the same area to view the stingray and reef sharks - so a bit overcrowded in the water for my taste. The buffet lunch provided was more than was expected. Say no more... I definitely recommend this provider if you are interested in this trip.
