Great Fast Ferries
Jan 2021 • Solo
Terevau was fast and reliable during my trip from Tahiti to Moorea round trip. Just make sure if you are planning bring a rental car to Moorea from Tahiti, book in advance because the spots for cars are very limited. It’s very easy to follow. Download the tickets on your wallet pass and they’ll scan it as you enter the gates. Also if you’re bringing luggage make sure you put it together downstairs in Tahiti with others. You will see it. And pick it up as you exit after they bring out.

A good choice
Dec 2020 • Couples
We took Aremiti one way and Terevau on the way back.
The boat is a little smaller however it is faster and just as comfortable with toilets and a small shop for snacks.

Ferry Service to Moorea
Nov 2020
We took the ferry from Papeete to Moorea. They run it very efficiency and our luggage was transported easily for us. It's a short trip. We were very happy with the service.

Incredibly fast
Oct 2020
Best and fastest way to get to Moorea from Papeete. Super fast ferry, I was amazed at the speed. 17 nautical miles covered in 30 minutes. Flies through the waves. No frills, free seating. Hop on, hop off. Got our tickets on the website. No reservation required, just the actual tickets. Makes for a fun and quick crossing.

My wife and I were going to fly to Papeete from Moorea but decided to take the Terevau Ferry instead. Very happy we did as it was not only much less expensive ($60 for flight per person compared with $11 (1 160 XPF)) to take the ferry, the only flight left at 3pm and boat left at 12:15 (several departures per day). So we were able to enjoy our one day at the Intercontinental Hotel near the airport much more than if we arrived at 4pm. Was not easy finding taxi from ferry and baggage pick up area (at opposite end of terminal - so turn right if boat is behind you) but once we did was a quick 15 minute ride to Intercontinental and cost about 2 500 ($24). We arrived at Ferry port in Moorea a little more than an hour before departure time. Our taxi (3 200 XPF from Hilton) pulled up and our bags were immediately taken. I had purchased and printed our tickets online before we left so the hour was more than enough time. In fact, too much time. You can purchase ticket at the dock and there are no reservations. First come first serve. Our Ferry had plenty of room so I don't think space is ever a problem. I am not sure if the same applies to vehichles. There are a few fruit & smoothie stands in the terminal but we went across the street to minimart in gas station to buy some snacks (prices reasonable). Boat ride was 25 minutes. Sea's were calm so comfortable ride, but ouside was extremely windy (went outside to take some photo's). I chose Terevau (red ferry) over Aremiti (white ferry) because their site was in English (French as well) and it was easy to navigate (you request ticket's and they will send e-mail back for payment) compared to Aremiti which is only in French (at least I couldn't find English version). Plenty of seats inside and interior was clean. A pleasant experience.

Nice ferry ride but much prefer the Aremiti 6
Feb 2020
Terevau is the slower, less expensive transport ferry between Papeete and Moorea. It is slightly less expensive than the Aremiti 6 and was a nice trip, but I much prefer the Aremiti 6, which is cleaner, faster, much less crowded, better air conditioning (which is huge when it is hot and very humid) and they offer a 60+ senior discounted rate of 950 xpf so it ended up being cheaper for us than the Terevau. We took both the Terevau and the Aremiti 6 and can say that we much prefer the Aremiti 6 (not to be confused with the Aremiti ferry that is much older and slower). The only downside to the Aremiti 6 is that it travels much less frequently than the Terevau, but in our mind it is worth scheduling around their departure times. The difference is like traveling in the back of coach on an airline (the Terevau) or going in premium economy (the Aremiti 6). Both will get you there - not a big difference in price, but one is a bit cheaper while the other is a much nicer trip.

Thank you for your appreciation of the Terevau. However, for more complete information, if the Aremiti 6 is faster from one pass to the other one, it is the same time from dock to dock (25 mn)... And if you were lucky to get a senior discount with Aremiti 6, which is surprising because discount prices do not apply on foreigners, only for residents, they have a higher price for non residents, which is not the case with the Terevau. Terevau is sure older but you'll have a more local environment and atmosphere. Terevau is an older boat but our staff is sure trying its best to please the passengers and make them feel welcome. Thank you for sharing your experience with us.

Good ferry service to Moorea
Jan 2020
Took the Terevau ferry from Papeete to Moorea. Found it very easy to buy a ticket at the ferry terminal. The baggage drop-off was a little sketchy, but our bags made it ok (pick up and drop off are on a "honors system" so to speak). The ferry itself was a bit worn, but acceptable. The ferry left right on time and arrived on time. Baggage delivery was prompt. We found it odd that there were no safety announcements on what to do in case of emergency. Also, the air conditioning wasn't very good and the seating area was hot!

Easy ride to Moorea
Dec 2019
We decided last minute to take the ferry from Pappete to Moorea. Cost for two return tickets was $ 45.00. Was easy to get tickets at the Ferry terminal (we took the 11.30am ferry) and ride was just 30 minutes. The only downside, the last ferry back is at 4.40pm.

Close to Cruise ship docks
Dec 2019
We were on a cruise ship and then over to Moorea for a few days. No need to book a transfer from the ship to the ferry as they are right beside each other!
