“A MUST MUST MUST do in Mo'orea!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

The tour bus picked up everyone at the hotel that was going to this excursion at 0845 (Mo'orea Pearl). We were taken to Club Bali Hai (Cooks Bay) from there we went to Opunohu Bay. Then we swam with the stingrays and the reef sharks. We were all scared at first but ones we got the hang of it. We all had a blast. The stingrays were so friendly and sooooo SOFT to the touch. One even sucked on my arm and I started laughing so hard because it tickled me. And the sharks didn't even bother you and just swam right passed you. After all that fun we had. We had a picnic and I was able to help make the Poisson Cru. DELICIOUS!!! That was the most exciting thing that I have ever done! Will do again when I come back <3

“A must in French Polynesia”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

We had this tour included as whole package and it was Great!
The team is very profesional and fun, from animation of the whole tour to preparation of the lunch in the motu.
You have the opportunity to swim in the lagoon between harmless rays and sharks. The rays even come to your hand to pick up some food provided by the tour. Take your submarine camera with you.
The lunch at the motu has a good variety fish, chicken, rice, salad, beer, rum punch... and it also includes demonstration of typical plate preparation.
It lasted 6 hours, but you really enjoy it.

“Highlight of the week”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

This tour hit it out of the park. The tour started in Cooks bay with stops to swim with rays and black tipped reef sharks. Our tour guide made us laugh and showed everyone how to open a coconut , there is a soft side and a hard side :) It ended with drinks and ceviche on a beautiful motu. Would recommend it to anyone who comes to the island.

“Good lagoon and snorkeling tour in Moorea”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

I had booked this tour prior to leaving for Moorea and also did the ATV and Jetski tour with Alberts.

In a nutshell, you will have the opportunity to swim with stingrays, watch the guides feed the sharks and have them swim close and around you. observe shark feedings, in addition to providing an all-you-can eat/drink buffet lunch.

This tour picks you up from your hotel and others staying at hotels along the way. The tour had heaps of people on board, at least 40 people, if not more.


First stop was swimming with the sting rays and the sharks, and the guides encouraging everyone to get into the water for the experience. I found that the guides were informative, easy going and funny. They are recording the tour from start to finish, including under the water, in the lagoon.

After swimming with the stingray and sharks, we were taken to the private island (motu) for lunch. The guides prepared and cooked up a the food. They also engaged some customers whilst showing us all how to make poisson cru and how to crack a coconut. The food and drinks were really good and it was set up in a buffet style, allowing to go back for more if it was wanted. Drinks were also supplied, including alcohol (beer & punch).

I would absolutely recommend this tour if you are in Moorea. Maybe reconsider if you are planning on doing further lagoon and snorkeling tours whilst in Bora Bora as the tours are pretty much the same.

“So Amazing!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

This was by far the best time we had in Tahiti! We booked a Shark/Ray feeding, beach trip right off of our Crusie ship with Solange. We paid $25 pp. A open catamaran took us to a lagoon where we spent an hour feeding Rays and swimming with black tip sharks. What an experience! Our guides were clear as to what we were allowed to do and kept a close eye on everyone,they did not rush anyone out of the water! Then we were of to a private Motu where we had a BBq lunch (for a minimal fee of $10 pp) of fresh fish, rice, fish ceviche and bread. This Island was so tranquil and a paradise all of its own. A short wasl down the beach and you felt alone in the world. Plenty of snolreling on the beach also. A must do while in Moorea! The ONLY complaint is that the bathroom was sketchy and toilet was plugged (outhouse)
