We visited many of the Society Islands during our 20 days in French Polynesia. Our VERY BEST tour was with Patrick from Maohi Nui. He was the image of the historic Tahitian. His 12 passenger outrigger boat was decorated with flowers and ferns and he and his assistants were in Tahitian dress complete with loin cloth. Patrick was extremely helpful... More

I cannot say enough about his experience! Patrick was fantastic and we learned so much about the islands, the reefs, and Polynesian way of life. 3 snorkel places with sharks, stingrays (can't say I wasn't a little overwhelmed), and lots of coral and fish. The absolute highlight was the lunch. We arrived on the motu hungry after a day swimming... More

I contracted Patrick for a small group off the cruise ship. We all learned so much from him about his culture and the area. The snorkeling stops were great and the motu lunch was the best. Don't hesitate to use his company. We were all treated like family!!!

So three snorkel stops with our very knowledgeable (and athletic!) guide, Patrick. First with the reef sharks (creepy, but I'm told, harmless). Second, to the very friendly rays who hope you have fish treats for them. Last to an awesome coral reef with more species of fish than you can count. Then it's off to a motu for a full... More

We did the 3/4 day tour with Mahana- it was a great day out! Not only did we have fantastic snorkeling with sharks, rays and an array of tropical fish- we were also entertained with some lovely singing and ukulele playing. The food and drinks were delicious and plentiful. Highly recommend.

The company is contracted out to our cruiseship today so it was more expensive than usual but it was worth every penny. We've already snorkeled around the whole island yesterday with Reef Discovery but Mauhi Nui managed to show us a whole different side of Bora Bora. First stop was swimming with reef sharks and nurse shark in deep water.... More

Organised by my well-travelled sister, a previous client of Patrick's - her comment was "BEST TOUR EVER", and she wasn't wrong. Absolutely recommend - if there is only one tour you do in the whole of French Polynesia, make this the one, you won't regret it. Bora Bora swimming and feeding sharks & rays, snorkelling, Polynesia food AND Mahana with... More

My wife and I did the 3/4 day tour with Maohi Nui (aka 'Patricks') on October 13 when the Celebrity Solstice visited Bora Bora on its way from Honolulu to Sydney. I was planning to write a rave review of this most memorable and wonderful day, but I see that Matt from Melbourne has gotten in first and has already... More

On a recent 18 day cruise visiting Hawaii, Tahiti and New Zealand before disembarking in Sydney, Australia, Bora Bora had to the be the most anticipated visit of our trip. Paradise does not quite set the tone. I don't think words can describe the picture perfect lslands, the 100's of shades of blue of the water in the lagoon and... More
