Patrick's lagoon and BBQ Tour

This was one of the most outstanding tours we were on. The seas, the sharks, the rays, the food and the entertainment was wonderful. Worth every penny. If you go to Bora Bora... read more

Unfortunately we had a very bad experience with Maohi Nui. French Polynesia was one of our Bucket List trips. When I am going on vacation that far and treating it as a once in a life opportunity, I am trying to do my best in thoroughly planning the trip. We planned every day of our vacation and had all the... More

We booked the Lagoon Tour & Lunch on Bora Bora with Maohi Nui via email before leaving on an Oceania Cruise of French Polynesia. No deposit was required and payment in US dollars was accepted on arrival. Both my wife and I are over 60 and neither of us had snorkeled before. My first attempt was outside the reef which... More

This group was very well organized, even to the point of moving participants away from the dock area while money was collected and the days outing clearly explained. First up was a swim outside the reef with Black tipped reef sharks and Lemon sharks in ten metre deep water. On the way we were serenaded by our guide Aea and... More

We were on a cruise on the Statendam through the South Pacific and a friend booked this tour for a large group of us. We were 36 divided between 3 boats. The day began with 3 snorkeling areas. We swam with black tipped and lemon sharks at our first stop, rays at our second and the most beautiful colored fish... More

We arrived by ship (Paul Gauguin) in Bora Bora and I wanted to snorkel so booked the tour by the ship. There was about 8 of us and it was by far the best snorkeling I have ever done in the world. Moana was fabulous! We visited the black tip shark area, snorkeled with the sting rays and then went... More

Wow! We did the 4x4 tour of the Island, Swim with Sharks, Swim with Rays, Snorkeling, and Motu picnic package. It was Fantastic! I highly recommend this tour! Due to timing, we split it over 2 days. Everything was quite fun and the food was fantastic. The sea life was very extensive and abundant. Make sure to bring your own... More

We booked Patricks lagoon tour via email before we left to go to Tahiti, Patrick replied within 24 hrs to confirm our booking and advised we needed to pay cash in USD on the day. We arrived early off our cruise ship and seeing as all 12 passengers were in attendance we left 20 mins early. The weather was picture... More

Myself and my husband took the private tour with one of the guides, Ed. We were well looked after with the swimming and lunch. The weather wasn't the best but our tour guide made up for it. Over all I would highly recomend this tour it was amazing!

We were spending 3 days in Bora Bora. In additional to the snorkelling tour we booked, we wanted to try out the Polynesian feast from the Maohi Nui Lagoon tour. We were so happy we did. The day was rainy, cloudy and windy. We thought it was a write off. Somehow it all worked out. Luciano took us to this... More
