This half-day tour was a great mix of snorkeling and romantic catamaran sailing. The guide was very friendly and did a great job of explaining the snorkeling, local tropical fish, island lagoon, and Moorea as a whole. We started snorkeling by swimming with sting rays and small black-tipped reef sharks (which were very easy-going) and then moved on to a coral garden and very colorful tropical fish. We ended the day snorkeling in a the larger lagoon and seeing buried replica tiki. Throughout the whole time, the catamaran sailing provided a fantastic view of the ocean, lagood and Moorea's mountains. The experience was very romantic (and even included some light drinks and fresh fruit)! Would definitely recommend.

We had a blast on this private catamaran. The guides were very knowledgeable about the area and great to point out all the different marine life.

A lovely tranquil way to see Moorea. We stopped off frequently to snorkel & explore. We worked together with the operator to travel from Tahiti & arrive at the pick up point in Moorea. A wonderful memorable day.

We had the most amazing trip - from start to finish. Leo (Captain) was super knowledgeable and took us to great spots. We swam with sharks & rays, had a fresh fruit platter and delicious cocktails. Would highly recommend - was worth every cent.
