Motu picnic from Manihi

Does anyone know if the Manihi Pearl offers something like a "motu picnic" where they take you to an isolated island for a picnic lunch? Also, are there any kayaking opportunities to isolated little atolls from the Manihi Pearl?

They do have a group picnic. Don't know if a private is even available. The motu that the resort is on is a large one. It would be quite a paddle to a deserted motu.

Secluded Motu Picnic

If you have ever dreamed of being on a deserted island, relaxing with the turquoise horizon as yours alone, then this is the tour for you. Situated on the other side of the atoll, the picnic motu is completely isolated, offering you an idyllic genuine tropical paradise. Enjoy a barbecued lunch on the white sand beach as well as local demonstrations. Take advantage of snorkeling and swimming in the sparkling lagoon, feeding the fish in the translucent bay, sunbathing, and reef walking. This full-day excursion is available year-round on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays. $132 per person.

Gotahiti.com is a travel agency and so their excursion pricing is a wee bit high. The Manihi Pearl does indeed offer both group and private motu picnics.

If you go to the Pearl's website, there is a Romance category for each resort. The Manihi Pearl's private motu picnic is running around $776 USD per couple:

The group motu picnic-- which we have been on and which is lovely-- runs three days a week (Tues, Thurs, Sat) and is about $77 USD per person.
