    Must do activity!
    Kayla_P, Mar 2023
    Luna and Clem were the most amazing guides on this trip! This is truly a must do activity. We snorkeled throughout the coral reefs feeding fish, swam with so many sea turtles, sting rays and sharks. It was truly an unbelievable experience. We were seamlessly picked up from the Hilton dock and they helped us arrange a taxi to pick us up to take us to the ferry station.
    Best bucketlist experience
    mark_b, Mar 2023
    Luna and Clem were the best tour guides in French Polynesia! Our kids had a blast swimming with the sharks and getting up close and personal with the Stingrays. Our 12 year old did not want it to end. Interestingly enough, the boat was the perfect size to get out to the coral reefs since bigger boats are not allowed. This was absolutely the highlight of our trip. Thank you Luna and Clem!
    Katherine_K, Feb 2023
    Wow this was an amazing experience. If I could give a higher rating I would. We got picked up right from our dock at our hotel on time, they had contacted us asking to move our tour back about 30 min which worked out better. They asked us what we have seen and what we wanted to see . We saw the sharks and sting rays, turtles and so many different fish! Luna was amazing and showed us different spots that we hadn’t seen on other tours. We got to swim further out. Feeding the fish papaya was unforgettable. We also got amazing pictures and videos. And the fresh fruit platter was amazing!!! This is worth the money!!

    Ia Ora Na Katherine, Thank you so much for this epic review! We loved to meet you two and spend a lot of time in the water! We’re very happy to have been able to show you things that you didn’t got to see on other excursions! Thank you for choosing us :) Mauruuru Roa, Clem and Luna
    Best experience ever thank you
    Catherine_R, Jan 2023
    We have been to three different countries from the snow to the heat and this was the highlight of everything we have done. Luna and her partner are beautiful and if you go on the early morning trip then don’t have to share some beautiful spots. I would recommend this tour to anyone wanting to experience the natural feeling and the guides are just the best we have had.

    Ia Ora Na Catherine, It was such a pleasure to meet you and your family! I wish you many more years of travelling around the world and we certainly hope that you will make it back to Moorea one day! Mauruuru Roa, Clem and Luna
    Fantastic excursion- 10/10 stars!
    David_H, Dec 2022
    This was our favorite excursion we did on Moorea. Luna and Clem were absolutely fabulous and very attentive. They taught us so much about the island, told us great spots to visit, and took us to some of the most amazing snorkeling spots. When we snorkeled, Luna was in the water with us showing us great things, teaching us about the sea life, and making sure we were all happy and safe. Clem kept an eye on everything above the water to make sure we were safe and always set up with equipment. We loved that they took pics above and below the water, and later shared them with us. We have been on trips with various outfits around the world, and this exceeded all our expectations. We absolutely recommend!!

    Ia Ora Na David, Thank you for this wonderful and extensive review. We really love what we do and we are so happy to have been able to share it with you! We certainly hope to see you back here one day! Mauruuru Roa, Clem and Luna
    Great Snorkel Adventure
    Meredith_S, Nov 2022
    We had an awesome time with Luna and Clem! They were both incredibly friendly and knowledgeable about the island. They made sure to customize the tour for what we were looking for, which was to snorkel and swim with wildlife and explore beautiful reefs. We stopped at three different spots and spent most of our time in the water, which was perfect for us! My favorite part was feeding papaya to tropical fish while snorkeling. Luna took a bunch of amazing pictures of our experience while guiding us as we explored a great coral reef. I would definitely book with Luna and Clem again! Thanks for a great experience!
    Response from Host, Jan 2023
    Ia Ora Na Meredith, Wow, thank you so much for your kind words! And yes the butterfly fish also keep a special place in my heart! It was a great pleasure to meet you and we hope to see you back here sooner than later! Mauruuru Roa, Clem and Luna
    We had a memorable...
    Martha_P, Nov 2022
    We had a memorable experience with Luna and Clem. If you want a custom, private experience on Moorea, this is the excursion you should choose. They take you away from the crowds so you can enjoy the lagoon and it’s wildlife. We highly recommend them and when we come back to Moorea, we will use them again. Thank you, Clem and Luna!
    Response from Host, Jan 2023
    Ia Ora Na Martha, Thank you for this wonderful commentary and yes we really recommend the early morning start to avoid the crowds that come later in the day! It was a pleasure taking you out with us! Mauruuru Roa, Clem and Luna
    The highlight of our stay
    Zev_B, Aug 2022
    This was hands down the *best* tour on our vacation. Luna and Clem are lovely people - kind, enthusiastic, patient. They know so much about the area and clearly love and care for the ocean. I cannot overstate: do not leave Mo'orea without spending the day with these two gems.
    Ben_C, Aug 2022
    What a wonderful experience. Worth it to have access to Luna and Clem for the afternoon. They were so accommodating and helpful and knowledgeable. We were impressed with the overall quality of their tour as well as their willingness to go the extra mile. Their tour was WELL worth the little bit of extra money it cost so that we were not on a boat with 20 other people we didn't even know. Our highest recommendation.

    Ia Ora Na Ben, Wow what a terrific review, thank you so much! We loved to spend time with you and show you Mo'orea's beauty! Mauruuru Roa, Clem and Luna
    They helped us non-swimmers do snorkeling with ease and joy
    K_C, June 2022
    We were hesitant till the last day about going on this snorkeling adventure as we can’t swim. In our messages with Luna, she assured us that they would help us out with whatever we feel comfortable with. Since this was a private tour, we wanted to take a chance and back out if we don’t feel comfortable. But from the moment we met with Luna and Clem at the Moorea dock, we found them to be very friendly and helpful. They took us on an island tour first and gave a lot of good information and we got see some beautiful spots. They then took us to the snorkeling spot, which was shallow, but we couldn’t touch our feet in some spots. But they gave us a buoy and some floating devices. Luna then took us each of us for around individually for snorkeling for a few minutes to gauge our comfortable level. Surprisingly we both felt safe in the water with all the guidance and help we got. She then took us on a longer tour of a ‘few neighborhoods’ under water to show us the coral formations and colorful fish. The highlight of the snorkeling was seeing sharks and sting rays from a close distance. They just swam around and we never thought we we see something like that and be comfortable, having seen the movies Jaws 😀. Once we got out of the water, they gave a big tray of fresh fruits and juices. They were very tasty and we just finished them all. Luna also took under water pictures and videos of our snorkeling and shared them with us. We can show them to our friends & family as no one would believe we could snorkeling let alone with sharks and rays. Overall, it was a wonderful experience and I strongly recommend this trip as it is a private tour and Luna & Clem are very helpful and knowledgeable to provide the best snorkeling experience.

    Ia Ora Na Lavakumar, It was such a special tour with you! I am so happy we got to share the beauty of the ocean with you! You have no idea how much these words mean to us. We will not forget this tour, it was very touching! Mauruuru Roa, Clem and Luna
    Great guides and great time
    Kenneth_L, May 2022
    Luna and Klem were incredible guides. They are very friendly and knowledgeable about the snorkel sights we visited. We had our 9 year old son on the excursion and Luna did such a great job helping him feel comfortable in the water. We can’t recommend them enough.

    Ia Ora Na Kenneth, It was such a pleasure to meet you and your family! We are very happy that you have enjoyed it and we hope to see you back here soon! Mauruuru Roa, Clem and Luna
    Mermaid is the best!
    Kenny_M, Mar 2022
    We found the mermaid! Majestic and beautiful... We had the best time with Clem and Luna. Fun and adventurous, we saw sharks and rays along with turtles. If you're searching for a fun-filled trip will knowledgeable guides, look no further. Maybe you too, can find the mermaid!

    Ia Ora Na Cindy and Kenny, This review truly means so much to us, thank you for everything! We truly hope that you had the best time on French Polynesia and that Cindy got to celebrate her birthday in all it's glory! Mauruuru Roa, Clem and Luna
    Just do this! It is a must do in Moorea
    james_e, Oct 2021
    It was like having a couple local friends take you on on their boat. Energetic, laid back and very knowledgeable of the coral and the local wildlife. Super fun snorkeling, local color and lots of laughs thanks to Clem and Luna!
    Best private boat experience
    CORINA_N, July 2021
    Fantastic team: Thank you Luna and Clem for the wonderful day we spent together!! They know the best spots to go for an island tour and all water activities. They are very knowledgeable about all the native animal species and Moorea’s legends. We joked to them about giving a five star recommendation but all joking aside they are a five star plus team. We highly recommend them!!
    Shannon_G, Sept 2020
    This was a fantastic trip - couldn’t ask for a nicer couple to show us around the lagoon. We highly recommend it!
    Response from Host, Sept 2020
    Ia Ora Na Shannon and Craig, Thank you so much for an awesome day and a great review! We really enjoyed our time with you and we hope to see you again! We’ll let you know when we make it to Austin! All the best from us, Clem and Luna

    Best day of our trip so far!
    Aflores, Aug 2020
    This trip was amazing! It has been the best thing we have done on our trip thus far. Luna was such a kind and patient instructor and taught us many thing about the Island. Clement and Luna are so kind and wonderful tour guides. My husband and I would highly recommend them for any sort of snorkeling tour or lagoon tour. I was truly terrified of the water and snorkeling before this tour, but by the end i was having so much fun and have changed my entire feeling about being in the ocean. make sure to book this tour!!!!
    Response from Host, Sept 2020
    Ia Ora Na April and Sergio, We loved taking you on our tour and helping you discover Moorea’s beautiful underwater world! You are a natural, and I hope you have been snorkeling many more on your trip! Thank you for the wonderful review and hope to see you again! Best regards, Clem and Luna
    Absolutely Amazing!
    a_flores, Aug 2020
    This was the best part of our trip to Moorea! 100% recommend this excursion! Luna and Clem were so kind, knowledgable, and accommodating. This was my wife's first time snorkeling, and Luna gave her extra attention and help to get acclimated. By the end, my wife was swimming with rays and sharks! Luna is also a pro at underwater photography! We now have some epic underwater photos with underwater sea life to share with family and keep forever. Thank you for an amazing experience!!!
    Response from Host, Sept 2020
    Ia Ora Na, Thank you so much for this wonderful review! You have no idea how much we appreciate this, this is why we love doing what we do! And April was a natural ;) We hope to see you guys again soon! We wish you all the best, Clem and Luna
    Amazing tour!!?
    Virginia_H, Feb 2020
    Best Excusion ever. The tour was amazing! We swam with the sharks and even received under water photos!! We had a great time, thank you for the excellent tour. We can highly recommend it!!
    Best snorkeling ever
    nakita995, July 2019
    Fantastic couple offering a fantastic snorkeling experience. Going privatly is 100% worth the price when you get a truly memorable experience. Having creatures pointed out to you and being encourged to stay much longer in the water than usual. But also because it is just you, you are flexible to edit the experience to suit you and how you are feeling on the day. Some incredible photos where sent to us afterwards that truly captured the whole experience. Best excusion I have ever done!
