Excursion from Wind Star Cruises. The excursion was FANTASTIC. The people are what made the difference. The Poetaina staff are the friendliest that we came across; and most every island had wonderfully friendly people. Maruia was our lead guide and was perfect; the happiest person we've ever met. She made the day very special. Maruia offered many Ia Oranas and... More

We took a tour this past week and even though it rained the tour guide and boat captain made sure we had an amazing time! We took the all day tour including lunch on the beach, a trip to the pearl farm, feeding eels, and snorkeling. I would recommend it to anyone. The tour guide gave us tons of history... More

Went on this Motu Pucnic tour on our visit to Hauhine. An excellent day of food, snorkelling, information, music and dance. What a fabulous day eating lunch in the water with fish swimming around you. Some of the nicest coral I have seen in Tahiti and also a great beach. Fantastic tour which I could not fault. Clean toilets and... More

We pre-booked this via email before we arrived and were pleased we did when our cruise ship arrived and guests were looking for activities all had already been booked, so there were no last minute options on this small island. We were met at the wharf by car by Jean-Pierre and taken to the launch area, it was really nice... More

Booked this tour on line. Easy to do. Got off our tender from the Ocean Princess and was met at the dock by our guides. First stop was at the blue eyed sacred eel domain. They were huge, as some of them were over six feet long. They would come right out of the water to get tuna placed along... More

This is a fantastic tour to make in Huahine. This was a paid tour for a Regent Cruise. Most tours on a Regent Cruise are paid for, this one was extra. The care of our group was obvious. Along the cruise to the Motu we had a great explanation of history, environment and culture. Once arrived, we debarked and went... More

On our first day it was raining when we exited the ship and we were nervous this would be our weather for the day if not the week. But we quickly learned the weather changes quickly and shortly after boarding the sun came out and stayed out all day. We went with Tita (her sister is Poe and together with... More

I've not had a lot of great experiences on boats filled with tourists anchored for snorkeling, but signed up anyway. And, I'm so glad I did. The folks on the boat were lovely, unassuming, friendly and knowledgeable guides. Plus, we were able to snorkel for a really long time. We weren't rushed (so much so I should have gotten out...
