day trip to Moorea from Papeete

How often does the ferry run from Papeete to Moorea?

Do you need advance reservations? Is it easy to book a tour on Moorea and get to where the tour would start?

I don't have the schedule in front of me....but it runs around 5 trips a day. Around every hour or 2 in the morning and then also late afternoon. There is a bit of a gap in the afternoon from around noon to 3. the Aremiti 5 (fast catamaran) ferry takes about 30 minutes for the crossing and is about $12 US.

You'd probably have to have a tour set up in advance to meet you at the ferry docks.

Thanks. Do you know if you can get a ferry ticket just walking up or do you have to book in advance?

No advance purchase necessary. Just walk up and purchase your ticket at the booth.
