        Unforgettable Moorea Experience
        This is a must do in Moorea. Taboo was a perfect sized catamaran for sailing around a large part of the island. The guide, Jamie (and the captain too!), were incredible. So friendly, very knowledgeable and knew how to get us to great locations before crowds. We swam with sharks and rays and snorkeled with tons of fish. Kicking back on the nets of the catamaran suspended over the water was a dream. Highly recommend this as an activity. We loved it.

        Really fantastic day out - thank you
        A really fantastic half day out on the catamaran and Leo the captain was really fantastic. Excellent sites to visit, and really considered guiding from the captain. A great fun morning out for our family (2 adults and 2 primary school aged children). Highly recommended. The highlight of our stay on Moorea. Thanks Leo! Tim, Sarah, Olive and Ella

        AMAZING - Family of 5 Perfect trip
        The most amazing experience of our trip! From swimming with black tip sharks, stingrays, every color of tropical fish, seeing green sea turtles, a group of eagle rays, finding 7 finger conch shells, beautiful coral it was magnificent. We were a family of 5. 3 girls ages 6-12years old, the boat was perfect, the food delicious, Captain Leo perfectly professional, patient and knowledgeable. We will be back and will 100% book with Captain again. It was raining hard in the morning and we boarded in drizzle and the day turned out absolutely stunning and wonderful! Loved every second.

        A great way to end Christmas Day!
        We had a wonderful experience. We were picked up by the Taboo at our hotel dock, traveled to two bays-very smooth sailing, learned a lot about the area, saw a rainbow and then watched the sky light up in shades of orange, yellow and pink as the sun set while drinking pineapple champagne. A great way to end Christmas Day.

        Moorea Sunset Cruisr
        The Sunset Cruise in Moorea was excellent. Leo the Captain did an excellent job sailing and sharing the fun facts of the island of Moorea. He was a good drink maker and photographer as well. We really enjoyed it. I would recommend this excursion and captain Leo.

        Life changing!
        If you’re on the fence about whether or not to do this tour I’m telling you DO IT. This tour was the most phenomenal experience my husband and I have ever had. Beyond the amazing views and snorkeling with sharks and rays, we got to learn about the culture of French Polynesia and the history of the place we were enjoying. Our lives are forever changed and we can not thank our guides enough for spending so much time making sure this tour was not only unforgettable but educational. The fruit and drinks were icing on an already beautiful cake! We’d do this tour 10 times over!! Māuruuru roa!

        Lovely jaunt
        Lovely little jaunt around the north side of the island. Leo, the captain, was very friendly and knowledgeable. It was a cloudy day so we didn’t get a sunset but we did get a chance whale encounter. Whatever conditions you get the day of your trip Leo will make the most of it.

        Absolutely incredible day!
        For our 5 year anniversary, we booked this tour as a private boat tour from 11:30am til sunset. Was it a little expensive? Yes. Was it WORTH EVERY PENNY? ALSO YES. The husband and wife team that run the company are a wonderful couple from France who make their living bringing joy to those visitong Moorea. We spent a wonderful day with Captain Leo seeing all the snorkling spots around the coast, seeing wonderful fish of every color, rays, small sharks, turtles, and even a mother whale and her calf!! The views were amazing and with the engine off and the sails unfurled, Captain Leo was in his element. Great speed, calm seas, wonderful views. Add to that, the captain served as both captain and waiter bringing delicious local food and beverages for us to enjoy. He truely made our special day one we will remember forever. 15 out of 10, can not recommend more highly for either the private charter we enjoyed or a group outing.

        Incredible Snorkel Experience
        This was a once in a lifetime excursion for my sister, brother, and I. The group include us, 2 others, our captain and guide. So, overall, it felt like a very private/personalized excursion which was nice and what we were looking for. The tour includes snorkeling with black-tipped sharks and stingrays which was such an incredible experience, snorkeling through a huge reef system, and lastly snorkeling looking at 8 different pieces of Tahitian art pieces that were sunken 25 years ago. All of this while sailing along the coast with the beautiful Moorea backdrop. The host also provides complimentary Mai Tai's and fresh fruit which were wonderful touches. Loved this experience and highly recommend to anyone staying in Moorea.

        A Smooth & Enjoyable Small Group Tour!
        Lovely experience! Anna and Lukas took or party of 4 (plus 4 other guests) to 3 different snorkeling sites, each unique (sharks/rays, then secluded coral reef, then a look at submerged Tikis honoring the Polynesian culture). The catamaran was a smooth ride inside the lagoon, where we were for the whole trip. We may need to try their sunset cruise next!

        So relaxing
        We had the best time with Leo on the sunset couples cruise. It was just the two of us plus the captain. He made us snacks and drinks and we just had a wonderfully relaxing time enjoying the views and the sailing. Would highly recommend to anyone!!!!

      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!

      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!

      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.

      We had an incredible catamaran experience with Voila Moorea! Lucas and Anna were not only welcoming and kind but also incredibly knowledgeable. The owner went above and beyond, personally picking us up and ensuring seamless transportation to and from the catamaran. They treated us to fresh fruit and drinks, creating a luxurious atmosphere. The breathtaking snorkeling stops provided stunning photo and video opportunities, making it an unforgettable adventure.

      Can’t speak highly enough if this experience, we were 2 families of 4 and we all taken care of. The team take you to great spots before the crowds get there and also explain the local fish, their role in the lagoon and history of the island which was so much more than just a snorkel trip.
      On top of that they have allot of local knowledge which was great for us having just arrived to Moorea.

      Amazing adventure on this tour. We did a private tour with only 4 of us. Boat was luxurious and allowed great access to the water
      Our hosts Anna and Lucas were knowledgeable, kind, and attentive when required. Anna was helpful with the not so strong swimmers ensuring that they got maximum exposure to each snorkeling location.

      Anna’s knowledge and passion for Moorea was a highlight of the tour

      Well done

      This was one of the best boat tours we have ever taken. Captain Leo took great care of our family of four. I was a bit concerned about the drizzly sky and cloudy weather, but we ended up visiting parts of the lagoon we never knew existed and that had calm protected waters. And as it turned out, the weather remained nice for our adventure. The snorkeling was incredible. We saw rays, sharks, turtles, and tons of exotic fish including large puffer fish and cow fish. The private tour was simply exeptional. The catamaran was comfortable and clean. Captain Leo had extra snorkel gear for my daughter, who forgot her fins. And to top it off, we had some amazing fresh Moorea fruit that Leo provided. This was our second time in Moorea, and this was definitely the highlight of this year's trip. We highly recommend this outing. So glad we did this.

      This is easily one of the best things you can do on the island. I booked a half day tour for a group of friends for my bachelorette party and it was absolutely magic. We swam, we snorkelled, we drank champagne, it was such a lot of fun. The staff are all very friendly and knowledgeable and nothing was a problem. Book it, you won’t regret it.
