My family and I had a wonderful day with Tanoa on our recent visit to Bora Bora. The boat is well stocked with snorkeling equipment, towels, and beverages to make the day comfortable. We snorkeled in the lagoon and then headed to the ocean, where we were able to stand amongst the sting rays and black-finned sharks, and even pet... More

Tanoa has lived in Bora Bora his whole life - his family has been here for over 7 generations. If you want to TRUE VIP Bora Bora experience - this is the one to book! Based on a recommendation from our hotel, we booked Tanoa for a full day (pricey - but totally worth it!!!!). He picked us up on... More

Make it 17 for 17 in the "excellent" review category for Tanoa. This was the highlight of our trip. If you want to see the highlights of the island, learn a bit about the local culture and enjoy a genuine experience from a top notch guide, this is your tour. I initially balked at the price tag for a full-day... More

I booked Tanoa's private tour after reading many of the great comments on tripadvisor I have to agree with everyone else's reviews and say that Tanoa's private tour was the best tour we did while visiting the French Polynesian islands. This tour was such an amazing experience and something that I will never forget. Tanoa was so accommodating to all... More

Wow. That's how I can sum up this experience. It was one of the top three best and most unique experiences in my life. Tanoa is such a professional, so incredibly friendly and knows the island like the back of his hand. He picked us up in his beautiful private boat and took us snorkeling in a efw different spots...

We had an amazing time with Tanoa on his private tour. He has lived there forever so he knows everything about the island. He really makes sure you have a great time. He took us to a few places to swim with sharks and stingray. He tops it off with lunch in the water at his own private motu. It... More

Like other reviewers, we had a blast with Tanoa during our day with him on August 8th. He's really entertaining and is completely focused on having fun and making sure you're happy. His boat is very comfortable... definitely first class. Swimming with the sharks, rays and millions of other fish was so amazing. We didn't want to get out of... More

If your'e ever in Bora Bora, you cannot miss booking a private day with "John" Tanoa and his amazing new boat. We found Tanoa Private Tours through the Four Seasons Bora Bora resort. Even though a day with Tanoa was a little bit more then the other boat tours available, it was worth the additional amount. Tanoa's boat tour is... More

We were lucky enough to discover Tanoa’s gorgeous lagoon during an unforgettable day with snorkeling amidst corals and colorful fish, some chills when we met with black tip sharks and eagle ray that Tanoa seems to have completely domesticated. Relaxing moment in an exquisite setting, Tanoa’s private motu with the lagoon’s turquoise waters and bora’s tender green mountains as a... More
