We had a fantastic experience taking the 1/2 day private tour, and captain Emilien and guide Fanny were extremely friendly and attentive. I would recommend taking the afternoon trip starting at 11:30AM and make sure to bring a small portable speaker to enjoy your own music while taking in the sights and snorkeling. The booking process was easy and Liza was a great communicator.....I would use them again

If you're curious whether to book this or not- DO IT!
This was hands down our favorite thing we did while in Tahiti. We booked a private sail so we could have all the fish to ourselves and it worked. ;)
We were picked up at our hotel and driven straight to the launch spot. Our captain chose our route and explained things we were seeing along the way. We were welcome to lounge wherever we liked on the boat and soak in the view. We happened to be sailing towards gorgeous rainbows on our way out and it was stunning! We hit 3 snorkel spots- one with sting rays and reef sharks, one with lots of tropical fish and one with a lot of Tahitian history. Our captain navigated the boat seamlessly and because we chose the morning slot, most of the locations he took us to (which there was no way we could have found or gotten to ourselves) were empty and we were able to enjoy it all ourselves! Along the way he served us tropical fruit and showed us how to feed bananas and grapefruit to the fish, which made for cool photos and a fun experience. He also served us some yummy cocktails. We never wanted it to end! Do yourself a favor and add this to your trip itinerary, you won't be disappointed!

We had a amazing time on the private tour. Went with my wife, my parents, and our 7.5 month old baby girl Andi. She got to swim with sharks and rays and float around in the beautiful warm water. We were running a few minutes late to begin the trip and Liza was so kind to make sure and wait for us so we didn't miss the trip. Everyone that was part of this trip was excellent and A+ service. They were friendly and informative but also not overbearing and let us enjoy each other's company. I would do this trip again the exact same way and would recommend to anyone going to Moorea looking for a gun day on the water. Make sure to bring your sunscreen but the boat also does have a good amount of coverage from the UV. Highly recommend the private tour as it allows you privacy and comfort of your own boat.

This was a fabulous experience! Our boat captain and snorkel guide were both great! They had a great sense of humor and knew a lot about the island lore. Unfortunately, I forgot the name of our snorkel guide, but she was my favorite! She was so smart and knowledgeable about the island. She even showed fun little tricks with some of the reef critters. It’s always great to see and swim with underwater life, but even better when you have a great guide! This is an experience we will cherish for the rest of our lives!

The day was simply excellent. Leo took us to less crowded places on this busy Sunday, gave us a lot of information about the region, the wildlife and showed where to swim to see the best fish. We went to three snorkeling spots. The fresh fruits and drinks were a perfect addition. Most of all, this tour felt very relaxed and professional at the same time. The boat is very clean and well maintained and there was good snorkel gear for all 5 of us on this trip.
For special tips, ask Liza for restaurant recommendations!

My wife and I booked a half day with Leo on the Catamaran Taboo. It was an absolutely amazing time from start to finish! He knew all of the great spots to go for snorkeling, and many were empty of other tourists so it was nice having some time to ourselves. He served us delicious fruits and juices, and filled us in on so much history of the island. I would most certainly book him again in the future, and recommend him to anyone looking for a great time. Cheers!

From the first minute one feels at ease and is able to fully enjoy the day to come. After the pick-up by Liza the catamaran boat ride is started by her partner Leo. Make sure to catch the morning ride which will get you to all the amazing stops everyone else. Jawdropping impressions, great snorkling with sharks and rays plus an all around feel-good service on board will make this a day to remember.

My wife and I decided to change from the group tour to the private tour and it was definitely the right choice. We had the catamaran to ourselves with the two captains and it was amazing! We visited three unique snorkeling sites where we swam with black-tipped sharks, sting rays, and some amazing fish species. The water is so clear, and the ship's captains were deeply knowledgeable about Moorea, the fish species, the island's history, and geography. I would highly recommend having the private tour if you are leaning toward this. We were not rushed and had plenty of time to enjoy the island with our small group.

We had the most amazing trip - from start to finish. Leo (Captain) was super knowledgeable and took us to great spots. We swam with sharks & rays, had a fresh fruit platter and delicious cocktails. Would highly recommend - was worth every cent.

A lovely tranquil way to see Moorea. We stopped off frequently to snorkel & explore. We worked together with the operator to travel from Tahiti & arrive at the pick up point in Moorea. A wonderful memorable day.
