We found out about this tour when a person that claimed to be president of a tourist association approached, in groups, to all people boarding the boat from Papeete to Moorea. He advised us to be careful about being ripped off by booking the tours via the hotels as they charge a higher price (30% up on average). However, we... More

Hiro met us at the ferry terminal in Papeete claiming to work for Tahiti tourism, and giving us advice about tourism activities in Tahiti. He recommended we book on "Hiro's Tour" in Moorea for which we had to pay cash. Several days later when we turned up for the tour it was overbooked and we could not get on board.... More

We had done two of these tours with this company in the past and enjoyed it but was very disappointed with what we got on this tour. We got up at 7 am in the morning to get over to Moorea with family on their first trip to Tahiti to take the boat trip we had been raving about only... More

We really should have done more research before we booked this trip to be sure it was what we wanted and expected. After a transfer and then waiting for 45 mins at a hotel we finally got on the boat which was jam-packed with people (about 40 on the boat) only to discover it went all the way back along... More

Met at Pier in Papeete by so called "president" and sold this tour. Pick up was on time at our hotel, but when we got to Manava to catch boat no one was sure if tour was going ahead or been cancelled. The swim with the rays and sharks was great. The "sumptuous buffet" was really poor. The salads were... More

This is a Moorea "must do". The boat trip is ordinary but you get to snorkel over some pretty reefs but the highlight is going to a sandbar in the lagoon on a canoe where they attract the rays and sharks and you swim with them. They say they are harmless but you are on edge the whole time. A... More

I am in complete agreement with Catbert121's review. This could have been a great excursion if it had been executed better. The overcrowding of the boat was unacceptable.
