My wife and I loved this tour -- Hugo was a great guide! The kayaks were nice, and it was cool to see the fish through the transparent bottom. He took us to a snorkeling spot near a smaller island off Moorea and we saw lots of colorful fish and corals. He also provided snacks and drinks and we relaxed near the island. For the last stop we went by a shallow sandy area where there were lots of sharks and stingrays. Overall highly recommended!

My sister and I had the best time with our lovely guide Hugo who took us to some of the most beautiful parts of the lagoon. Really special to be on a transparent kayak and to see the rays and mini sharks swimming under our kayak. Unique experience we loved it 😍

Lovely way to enjoy sunset on the lagoon. We kayaked out to a small island, with another couple and our guide, who was very attentive, chilled and fun, then snorkelled with lots of coral and a variety of beautiful reef fish. Rum cocktails on the beach were followed by a short kayak to the sandbar where we jumped in and were joined by blacktop reef sharks and stingrays for sunset, amazing!! A great experience, my partners first time with sharks and rays 👍

We had booked the sunset tour. Our group consisted of six people on three kayaks following our tour guide, Hugo. He lead us through the coral reef against some strong current. He was very attentive to our safety and always checked up on us. Once we arrived to our first stop, Hugo gave us some juice and snacks to enjoy while watching the sunset. We did some snorkeling before went to the spot where there were black-tip reef sharks and stingrays. We saw so many sharks, it was amazing. We saw them closeup with our goggles and snorkels. Hugo was always next to us, telling facts about Moorea and the sharks. The tour ended with us kayaking back to the shore while admiring the beautiful sunset. I would recommend this to anyone visiting Moorea.

My husband and I had a lot of fun on this excursion. The surroundings were absolutely gorgeous. Our tour guide Hugo was very friendly and assisted us with the kayak since neither of us had previous experience. Disclaimer: Kayaking is very tiring so be prepared to get a workout! We were taken to a couple of different areas for snorkeling and saw lots of coral and tropical fish and also a stingray and shark. We also stopped for a snack of pastries, fresh fruit and rum punch which was very tasty. Would recommend this tour for anyone visiting Mo’orea who wants to get off their resort to explore other areas of the island!
