We had a large group from a cruise ship and Patrick was able to accommodate all of us. Each of his outboard powered outriggers seat 12 comfortably. Each outrigger has a canopy to help protect from the sun. Our guide, Moana was wonderful, with a very likable personality and humor. He also played the ukelele and sang quite well during... More

If you have one day or more while in Bora Bora, take this tour with Patrick! We arrived by cruise ship & had such a wonderful day! We were met at the tender area and given an introductory talk & boarded our outrigger boat! Such beautiful sights! We went about 30 minutes out to a reef and snorkeled (with provided... More

We were off a cruise ship in Bora Bora. A friend we met from Australia had made reservations for 38 of us so we put our faith in her previous trips with Patrick's Tour. What an awesome adventure and worth every penny spent. Our group was picked up at the pier and we went to our Outriggers, four of them,... More

We had a simply fantastic time with Moana who was in charge of our boat and Patricks entertainment and knowledge of Bora Bora was outstanding. They made our experience one we will never forget ! The snorkelling, the lagoon tour, the lunch and onboard/off board entertainment was 5 star ! Tahiti was on my bucket list and we were not... More

Patrick's tour cannot be faulted. He only takes 12 people in each boat, so it is very personal. You can tell that Patrick and his team take pride in their country and they love what they do and they will make you love it too. Being able to swim and snorkel with the Reef Sharks, Stingrays and the Fish amongst... More

Patrick was fabulous. We loved it all. We snorkeled in three different spots seeing sharks, rays, and reefs. Getting in and out of the water was made easier for older travelers with a ladder and line out from the boat. The crew was so helpful. Everyone felt safe and encouraged. There was live music on the boat which made it... More

Patrick really puts on a great tour and show. Begin with snorkeling with the Sharks and then playing with sting rays. Next come a super Polynesian lunch and then a fire baton performance by Patrick himself. If you visit Bora Bora, for sure don't miss this experience.

We spent our entire day in Bora Bora with Maohi Nui Tours on a combo tour. The morning was spent in a 4x4 Land Rover discovering hidden places with scenic views on this beautiful island. (Our driver “Moana” was expert and quite entertaining.) And, after a luau-type lunch prepared on a beach and eaten while sitting at a table in... More

This was easily one of the best if not the best day we snorkelled in French Polynesia. The weather was fantastic, and Patrick, who was on our boat to start in the morning, was informative and helpful. Excellent snorkelling, and the BBQ was very good. Thanks for a great day, wonderful memories, and some amazing pictures -
