“Fishing Experience”
Reviewed January 16, 2013

I booked two half day trip during our vacation; one for inside the lagoon and one for outside the reef for sailfish and wahoo. Keith was our guide and had excellent knowledge of the local waters and fishing strategies. Both days were windy with the outside trip having very large swells and periodic rain. Our luck was OK given the conditions, but the experience with Keith was great. I would do it again. Pick up was prompt, the equipment was well maintained and the professionalism was super. I fish all over the world and this did not disappoint.

“2 hours of fun on Jet Ski tour”
Reviewed January 16, 2013

My husband and I booked the 2 hour Jet Ski tour with Moana Adventures and I must admit it was one of our highlights of our time in Bora Bora.
The best way to see the island and amazing views and the colour of the water is breath taking.
Stephane was very accomodating and helpful with all of my enquires and responded asap.
On the tour we stopped at an island and our guide showed us how to crack a coconuts, which was very intersting.
Can not thank Moana Adventures enough for such a well ran tour and experience.
See you when we are next in Bora Bora!!!

“shark and ray feeding”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

This was our second tour with the Moana group, the first one was the jet ski tour, which was personalised and thoroughly enjoyable. The shark and ray tour took it over the top. We had a private tour with our guide Adrian. He was very friendly and the boat was in good condition and comfortable. After reading terrible things about the lagoonarium, we had no idea what to expect. This was our honeymoon holiday and this tour was certainly a highlight. We went out to the lagoon and were able to jump into waist deep water while a dozen or more large stingrays swam around us looking for food. It was incredible. The animals were docile and we were able to feed , touch and investigate at our leisure. There were lots of reef sharks around at this time too. After this we were taken out past the reef to the deep ocean areas where we were invited into the water to swim with the sharks. That experience was incredible with dozens of small reef shakrs and 3 large lemon sharks, and again felt safe and got amazing photos. The entire trip was one of the highlights of our trip.

“Shark and ray safari”
Reviewed January 7, 2013 via mobile

Do yourself a favour and jump in with the rays, they are very friendly and you won't forget it! Our guide was great, although a little nuts ( who tries to surf on a shark's back. I mean really!). The snorkelling is great and there was only us and another couple all day. The Lemon sharks are cool too. Highly recommend going on this tour, you friends will be amazed at the photos of you in the water with 20 massive rays.

“You must meet Nora from Bora Bora when feeding the stingrays”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

Swimming with the stingrays in Bora Bora was a shore excursion that we took from the Princess cruise. Our hopes were high for a great time, yet this experience exceeded all expectations for our entire family (me, my husband and my parents). We took off on their boat for about a 15 minute trip to the area where the stingrays live. Nora from Bora Bora gives everyone a warm welcome and tells you what to expect along the way.

You get off the boat into shallow water (I'm short and could easily stand up) while the stingrays start to follow the boat anxious for dinner time. Once in the water, a guide feeds the stingrays pieces of fish and boy do those stingrays get excited! They were like hungry puppies gently pushing and shoving to get their piece of fish! They swim around you and between your legs and let you "pet" them. Their bodies are as soft as silk but their tails are like very rough sandpaper (their barbs have been removed so they are safe for visitors). It was a breathtaking, amazing experience interacting with these stingrays.

They let us feed the stingrays too. You put a small piece of fish in the gill that is on top (there are teeth in that gill), because their mouth on the bottom doesn't have any teeth to chew the fish. These guides have been feeding the stingrays for 20+ years so they know the stingrays really well. In fact, one of the rays was pregnant and they pointed that out to us.

After about an hour with the stingrays, we went to a second location to snorkel along some coral heads. Nora even opened some oysters for us to eat fresh from the sea.

What a fun and unique tour that I would highly recommend!
