This was an amazing experience for my wife and I. Tanoa was extremely friendly and accommodating. The weather was questionable for the day we booked the tour and Tanoa called us to make sure we still wanted to do it. This is awesome because he would've been OK with us cancelling and wouldn't have charged us. We decided to do... More

If you are looking for an over the top tour with the nicest boat, guide and itinerary in the island, this is it! Pure luxury and exclusivity. Tanoa is a true islander, that loves his culture and his island. He picks you up at your hotel dock , and sings and plays his little "guitar" while you approach the boat.... More

We took Tanoa's private tour while we were staying at the St. Regis Resort in Bora Bora. We had completed a number of adventures on both Moorea and Bora Bora, including many things we would later do with Tanoa. Even having done many of those things, this tour was even more impressive and amazing than we had anticipated. Tanoa is... More

Tanoa takes you from one spectacular experience to another, all day long: swimming with the sharks and stingrays; viewing the manta ray; harvesting and eating huge clams within one minute after they are taken from the sea bottom; soaring with the eagle rays; seeing Tanoa harvest and open a coconut and make a tuna tartare salad; fabulous picnic lunch on...

A day with Tanoa in the magnificent lagoon at Bora Bora was the highlight of a 35-day Pacific Cruise on the Dawn Princess. Swimming with reef sharks and sting-rays, whale watching and feasting, with the occasional cold Hinano beer was our idea of paradise. And Tanoa is the real deal, a lovely man who knows how to show you his... More

My husband and I took this private tour on October 7th, 2015 and absolutely loved the experience and Tanoa. I own a travel agency so have I experienced a lot, but this by far was the best. He picked us up at Intercontinental pier in the morning with his beautiful Pontoon boat. He then took us all around the island... More

Our private full-day tour with Tanoa was the highlight of our honeymoon. Tanoa took us snorkeling with the rays and black tip reef sharks, we swam with a manta ray, spotted eagle rays, snorkeled at the coral gardens and then he cooked us the best meal I've ever had on his family's private motu/island. Such an amazing experience. This was... More

Tanoa was the highlight of our Honeymoon to Bora Bora. The tour is beyond amazing as he takes you around the island in his amazingly comfortable boat to see Lemon Sharks, Blacktip Sharks, Manta Rays, Sting Rays, Eagle Rays, Eels, and more fish than you can imagine that are more than eager to eat bread right out of your hand....
