The uniqueness of Moorea is the combination of turquoise lagoon and green inland. The 4x4 Safari Tour we took was the perfect way to explore the rich vegetation and wide variety of fruits in More. The 3.5h tour was greatly enhanced by our guide Mana. He loves his island and is able to share his passion to the tourists: we stopped at almost every other fruit tree where he not only showed us the local produce but explained the usage and application for the locals. This allowed us to better understand the culture and the close relationship between Polynesia people and nature. If you book 4x4 Safari Tour, ask for Mana!

We booked a whale watching and snorkeling trip with Mo'orea Mahana Tours while staying at the Mo'orea Hilton. It was a group excursion and prices were very reasonable. The captain and first mate picked us and a few other couples up at the hotel dock and off we went. Our main goal was to swim with the humpback whales but the water on our side of the island was a bit rough. The captain promised he'd do everything he could to help us see a humpback whale and also get in the water with them if the conditions were safe... And he absolutely delivered. Not 10 minutes into the boat ride, he spotted a mama whale and her baby in a bay. We were able to watch them from afar but not get in the water as the bay is a protected space for the whales. Just watching them alone was a really cool experience. The captain then took us out past the drop off and around the island, which offered a breathtaking view of Mo'orea. Once the waves calmed on the other side of the island, the captain spotted another mama and baby whale and let us know that it was time to get in the water. We were instructed to get into our gear quickly and quietly, and the captain explained some safety measures to us -- primarily that we had to stay together out in the water. The boats are not allowed to get close to the whales in the ocean so they had to drop us off a little more than 100M away, and we swam the distance to the whales. The water is cool and it is definitely open ocean swimming, so it may be challenging if you're not a strong swimmer. However, the first mate always swims with a boogie board and rope, and he pulled a couple the entire way to the whales and back on our trip. The goal was to get everyone safely to the whales so we could all see them together. Once we made it to the whales, we stuck together and didn't get too close so as not to disturb the whale. It was absolutely magical, and a feeling that's hard to describe. We observed them in the water for about 30-45 minutes then made the swim back to the boat. What really impressed me with the trip was the absolute respect and care the captain and first mate had for the whales. It was special to see that they were enjoying the experience as much as the guests. And I loved that each directive from the crew was to keep the whales safe and calm. I think whale swimming is probably an activity best enjoyed by adults or really strong younger swimmers. The boat ride also wasn't bad at all, even in the rougher seas. However, I'd recommend taking a Dramamine if there's any chance you could get seasick. After whale swimming, we visited an area of shallow water where we had the opportunity to swim with some rays and reef sharks. These sharks are around people nearly every day and are quite small, so it's a very safe experience and would also be appropriate for kids. We wrapped up snorkeling and were served fresh pineapple and coconut on the boat ride back to the hotel. It was the perfect way to end a really perfect day.

We just had a land tour of Moorea that was incredible. It was a 3.5 hour tour on a 4 by 4 pickup. His knowledge of all things Moorea was incredible. He stopped and pointed out almost every native fruit growing in the wild. We saw wild eels, the black sands beach, the Belvedere pineapple plantation, the overlook point, the juice factory and more. Time well spent. Manama new everything there was to know about Moorea and was excited to share that information. Highly recommended.

Mana took us on an atv tour throughout the island that was an absolute highlight on our trip. We had the opportunity to see the eels, the pineapple factory and some exquisite views. Highly recommend! We also did the snorkel and whale watching with this company and everyone was very friendly and enjoyable.
