We were on the sailing yacht Wind Spirit and this excursion was on our last day. It was THE BEST way to cap off an excellent vacation. The family that runs the tour is awesome and Titiana made the day very special because she's so special. HIGHLY RECOMMEND this tour.

The four of us spent a fabulous day with Poetaina Cruises in Huahine French Polynesia. We had a lovely tour guide, Taina, and she shared her love of the island with us snorkeling, a visit to see the blue eyed eels, a pearl farm and the best part of the day dining in the crystal water on a private Motu....

(Visited May 2013) I decided to try Poetaina after my camera batteries died while on the one other Lagoon Tour Company on Huahine. This Family-Owned business was very good. We snorkeled right away until the sea/lagoon saddened became rough. Then a visit to a Pearl Farm and Sacred Eels. We were shown how to make Poisson Cru and lunch was... More

We enjoyed our day with Poetaina off of our cruise ship. The guide was extremely pleasant and we really felt welcome by her and the other locals who fed us and entertained us during our motu picnic. The snorkeling stop was quite good, with clear water and an abundance of fish. The black pearl stop was ok - it is... More

After spending 2 weeks on a cruise ship to Bora Bora, and going on several excursions, (none of which lived up to the hype), I was overwhelmed by the experience I had with Jean Pierre and his lovely assistant Dolores. Both are native to Huahine and were a wealth of information about the island, the royal families, the flora and... More

My sister and I stayed at the Pension Poetaina and joined a few other people for the full day lagoon, snorkeling and picnic tour. This is the same tour Jean Pierre does for cruise guests and it's a brilliant excursion. Hope all the cruise lines add it! At the pier we met our escort for the day, Dolores who was... More

We took the full day tour with picnic. We had an amazing time, the tour hits all the right places, but what really made the tour was the guides. The guide and the boat captain both really enjoyed their work and it showed. They kept the whole group engaged even though about half spoke English and half French. The food... More

This was an authentic Huahine experience with a nice friendly team that knows to really enjoy what they are doing. Picnic in water also very interesting, you can share your food with the fish that are swimming around you.
