We booked a private romantic sunset cruise at short notice. Our Captain and Host Benoit was the perfect companion for our last evening in Wonderful Tahiti. A complete spectrum of sunset color was painted across the entire sky! A big thank you to Captain Benoit for making our visit to this amazing island so memorable. Very highly recommended to all!

Captain Benoit provide the best private experience I've ever had snorkeling. His boat is the perfect size for 2-4 (we were 2). Comfortable, easy to get in & out, especially from the water. This time we did the Coral Garden Snorkel. It was my daughter's 1st time in French Polynesia and she loved every minute of it. Captain Benoit not only led us through the gardens, but also took excellent, beautiful pictures along the way, including so many of us - what great memories he provided. His pictures were 100 times better than what my little underwater camera took. Hats off to the Captain for providing this wonderful "extra" to our experience. This is the second time I have had Captain Benoit take us out. My husband and I went in early 2019 the first time. Again, so awesome, I wanted to only go with him this year. If you want a private excursion, I would only recommend you book with Captain Benoit-it will be amazing.

We got to see wrecks and sea turtles. The whole experience was amazing. The captain was right on time and very attentive, he was also very knowledgeable and pointed out different sea creatures to us. We would highly recommend this private one of a kind experience. My only regret is not bringing cash to tip him, he really went above and beyond to make sure we enjoyed ourselves.

My husband and I went on a snorkeling tour with Benoit a few days ago and had the BEST time! It was our very first snorkeling experience. Benoit took the time to teach us everything, demonstrate how to use the equipment, and helped us during the entire tour. We are not the strongest swimmers, so it helped that we were able to borrow all equipment (including snorkel vests and noodles). He was very patience and calm when we were very nervous. We loved that this was a PRIVATE experience - it helped us get more comfortable in the water and enjoy the tour to the fullest. We saw incredible coral reef and sealife. The highlight was that Benoit took so many beautiful photos of us and the many things we saw. They are the perfect souvenir for us to remember our first snorkeling experience. If we are ever back in Tahiti, we will book a longer tour with Benoit.

The pricing for all tours is also very reasonable for the type of experience you get. Don't hesitate - book with Benoit now! You will not regret it!

Captain Benoit is a great host! He was available the same day as we decided at the last minute to book a sunset cruise. We were welcomed on the dock by his high energy and happy attitude. He gave us a quick overview of what to expect, offered us water, and took plenty of pictures on his camera that he shared after the cruise. He guided us into various areas to see some underwater sights, we got to see a Sting Ray, and of course the beautiful sunset. Our comfort, safety, and enjoyment was his top priority. Benoit anchored us in a perfect position to watch the sunset, he even offered to move us around if we wanted but he got the angle right on the first setup. I would highly suggest you book Benoit for your tour as we were also able to book privately so did not have anyone else with us, just my wife and I. Our selfie with you didn't save captain, sorry!

We were looking to book a last minute excursion for our last day of our trip. We emailed Benoit at about 8pm the night before for a noon snorkel and he replied very quickly and we were set for a snorkel tour! He met us right on time and we got out on the water. It was a very short ride to our first snorkel spot, just off the coast where the intercontinental is. We saw the wrecks first and then snorkeled around the coral gardens. The coral here was unlike anything we’d ever seen! Gorgeous and lots of wildlife. Capt Benoit was constantly taking photos for us and took a lot of photos of us as well, something you don’t always get when you’re a party of 2. We were in the water for essentially our entire tour and got our monies worth. The ride to the next stop was also very quick. Not enough time to dry off and reapply sunscreen (oops). He led us all around the coral and it was beautiful. After we were back to the boat he offered us beverages and then we returned to the dock. We paid by card at the end. Overall, it was a great 2hr 30min excursion out on the water. It was cool that it was only us on the tour and he was very flexible with timing.

THIS is your guide. From the moment we met Captain Benoit at the marina, he was everything you want in a guide--he has a true passion for the ocean, for Tahiti and life in general. He has his systems dialed, but you don't feel like you're just another tourist. When he found out we surfed earlier in the morning, he went out of his way to show us a nearby break that's only accessible by boat. He was attentive, checking in to make sure all was good throughout our trip. He has a deep love and respect for the ocean and sea life, which shows.

Absolutely perfect. I am used to travel alone and shy away from touristic or over crowded experiences. To my delight Benoit brought went snorkel with me and showed me all these under water territory that we scouted himself. He loves his job, loves nature and it shows. I couldn't have hoped for more.
Can't wait to come back and try all the other tours!!!

Three of us had a wonderful fully private 2.5-hour tour with Captain Benoit, Tahiti Lagoon Paradise. He is not only the Captain but is also your guide! We chose trip #4. He led us on a spectacular tour through the Coral Valley where he guided us through the coral and took pictures and pointed out the various wildlife all along the way. It was absolutely incredible! We also went to the wrecks and the aquarium area which is enjoyable, but the Coral Valley was the highlight. Captain Benoit himself is delightful, knowledgeable, and safe. We also really appreciated that the tour is all about the snorkeling. It was the snorkeling highlight of our trip, and we highly recommend any trip with Captain Benoit as a MUST DO while staying in Tahiti or Moorea.

Went for an amazing evening snorkel with the very kind Captain Benoit. He was extremely knowledgeable about the area, snorkeling, and the fish in it. He made sure we were confident with the equipment before jumping in. Once we were in the water he lead us on a beautiful tour of the coral garden, stopping to point out interesting fish and sea creatures. He also answered questions along the way (an athletic feat while swimming in snorkel gear). Would highly recommend for anyone looking to see the beauty underwater in an easily approachable way.

Perfect for beginners as he was happy to explain the basics of snorkeling and tow weaker swimmers behind him.
