Make sure you have a good sun lotion so the intense Tahitian sun doesn't bbq you. This is doubled between October and April.

Trojan nailed the activities on the head. We did all of those and had the most fun we ever have. I would also have to add Khaina Hut into the mix of places to eat.

Would dump the Top Dive as a stop...nice fine dining facility, but very poor service:

- We waited over a half hour after we were seated before anyone returned to our table.

- Once we asked for our check at the end of the evening we waited another half hour for a check, then another twenty minutes for them to pick up the bill.

- We had to charge the meal to our room (at another resort thankfully) since they could not master their credit card machine.

The relaxing 2 hour fine dining experience we expected, became a four hour painful experience that we regret.

Also would add in an all-day Jeep tour of the island.

There really aren't that many things/activities to see and do on the island. It's mostly relaxing and doing nothing.

The standard ones that everybody does are:

Shark/Manta Ray feeding

Jeep 4x4 safari tour

and various water sports such as snorkeling, diving, etc.

One thing we did and loved was the Submarine. If you are not a scuba person, you will not see the life at over 100 feet like we did. Saw 5-6 foot black tip sharks, 8-9 feet lemon sharks, huge Napolean fishes, a Finding Nemo fish.

It was really cool and everyone thought it was worth it. There were six of us on board. The cool thing is a boat takes you to the sub, which is in the middle of the ocean!! The captain is very informative and we thought it was great.

We did the underwater walk- one unforgettable experience. They put the oxygen mask on you and you just walk and feed the fish underwater...about 25 ft.

The snoerkeling tour with manta ray and shark sight seeing is another great one.

As for dining we loved Bloody Marys and then Top Dive.

We miss Bora bora- am sure you will have fun!!
