Patrick gave us a price that was a third of the one being charged by The Meridien. When I told him that the Meridien's tour operator department had informed that they do not permit tour boats to dock at the hotel's dock. He said that was a lie (and he was right!!!). He sent Edouard to pick up myself, my... More

Bora Bora was an overnight port on our Oceania Cruise in January 2014. We booked with Maohi Nui for the lagoon tour with lunch at their private beach. It was a gloomy, rainy start to the day, but with Patrick's and Luciano's (his first mate) singing and ukelele playing, no one even noticed! Our first stop was to swim with... More

I can say this excursion was the best money I spent in French Polynesia. Patrick and his cousin Alex were great, very friendly and genuine. My wife and I went on the combo tour which included the land rover 4x4 island tour followed by the Polynesian lunch then the canoe ride around the island to swim with the sharks, feed... More

This is our second time to French Polynesia, but our first time in Bora Bora. We had a very high opinion of the region, but Maohi Nui just blew our mind!! The service was excellent and they were very accommodating. Our tour was scheduled for 9, but it was really rainy in the morning. We asked them to move it... More

We booked this tour directly with Patrick via e-mail while we were in Bora Bora. You will get a better price booking directly and using cash. Patrick was very good at e-mailing us back and forth in order to set something up. We were a family of four and wanted the 3/4 snorkeling and champagne lunch in the water. I... More

Went for the morning trip yesterday with Rapa for our boat driver and guide. He is a heap of fun and a real nice guy. He picked us up at the dock of the Le Moana, before the agreed time, and straight off to swim with and feed the rays, and see the sharks, but no feeding, he is a... More

What a marvellous morning we spent with Rapa touring around the island by boat. First stop swimming with and feeding the stingrays. The Polynesian's love of children was evident in the care Rapa took with our thirteen year old to make her feel safe to interact with the rays and again later when we were in the open sea swimming...

My wife and I did the full day private honeymoon day. I can't express how beautiful our day was! We were staying on Motu Ahuna Villa, a private villa on an island near the pass. Luciano and Mahana picked us up at our dock, and the fun began! We were given an excellent tour of the lagoon on our way... More

I do not think it is fair to call this a tour. It is an authentic Polynesian experience, with guides who are not only knowledgeable but also extremely respectful of the culture and the land. Patrick and his guides have a wealth of information and make guests feel completely comfortable and welcome. They help you through the snorkeling experiences, diving... More
