    A wonderful experience
    Joanna_S, Sept 2023
    The rain did not diminish the wonderful experience of cruising on the peaceful and beautiful waters of Moorea, if anything, the experience was enhanced by the dramatic vista of mist enveloping the mountains. Leo is a fantastic and very knowledgeable tour guide. A greatly recommended attraction!
    A bookend to a perfect week in paradise
    Matthew_N, Sept 2023
    What a wonderful conclusion to a week in Tahiti! The pick up was perfect, small dingy out to his ship and we were off. So quiet and peaceful. He provided some history and answered questions. Highly recommended!
    Great experience- totally worth it!

    Caroline_L, July 2023
    We had a wonderful time on this sunset cruise. Lucas was kind, professional, knowledgeable, and fun! I would definitely recommend this experience to anyone looking for a gorgeous, relaxing sunset cruise. Lucas made sure we had the best angle to watch the sunset as well. 10/10 experience!!
    Response from Host, July 2023
    Thanks Caroline ! Great to read about the amazing time you had on our Sunset Cruise and with Captain Lucas. Mauruuru Roa Léo, Liza and Lucas
    The views are Definitely worth it!
    Cheryl_G, June 2023
    What a lovely evening with Leo! The views were so beautiful! Leo have us a little history of the island as well! I would Definitely recommend!
    Had a nice time, just got a little wet!
    Charlie_B, May 2023
    We had a fun time on the cruise with one other couple onboard, and the captain, Emilio I believe, was very nice. Had the unfortunate situation of a rain storm pop up at the end of the cruise, which was a disappointment, ( no sunset ) but you can't control Mother Nature.
    Response from Host, July 2023
    Ia Orana Charlie, Happy you had fun and nice time abord with Captain Emilien and the other passengers. A little bit of rain at the end of a tour is not something easy to predict and can happen sometimes. Nonetheless colors in the sky were great that day after the sun was set which is part of Moore'a magic.
    Absolutely perfect!
    Michael_R, May 2023
    Such an amazing night! Captain Lucas was a great host for us. We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect evening.
    Small group fun!
    Katie_T, May 2023
    Awesome time on Taboo with Captain Leo! We were there with only two other couples so it was super chill and fun. The boat is great and the sail before sunset is wonderful. Highly recommend!
    Magical time on the water.
    Robyn_W, Apr 2023
    Best experience of our Tahitian holiday. Only one other couple on board so virtually a private tour. Leo, our captain, was friendly and laid back and gave enough information about the island and its history while leaving us to just enjoy the experience. Fabulous scenery. Highly recommend this cruise. Thank you, Leo for a wonderful afternoon.
    Response from Host, Apr 2023
    Thanks Robyn for coming aboard with us and for your nice review. You are making a proud captain there :-) Happy you had great experience ! Mauruuru Roa Léo and Liza
    A perfect end to a perfect day!
    Monica_H, Mar 2023
    Leo was an amazing and gracious captain!! Our family enjoyed this wonderful and relaxing cruise which, although not completely private (we were joined by another family and a couple), felt incredibly intimate. I highly recommend!!
    Response from Host, Apr 2023
    Thanks Monica for your nice review ! Having a small group of passengers and providing and intimate experience is very important to us. Thanks for pointing that out. Mauruuru Roa Léo and Liza
    Simply stunning and special
    Rita_W, Feb 2023
    What a wonderful way to end a day! A relaxing and beautiful cruise around Moorea. Our Captain Leo was an experienced sailor, engaging and very knowledgeable about the local area, mountain ranges, history and myths! We were a little sceptical about getting a sunset with an overcast day but he sure did find us a beautiful spot to watch the sun go down with its amazing colours setting through the clouds! It was really nice to have a boat for only 6 people as it felt as if we were in our own sailing around the lagoon! This is a definite must do when in Moorea… Thank you a 10 out of 10 experience!!!
    Excellent tour. Great...
    Kevin_B, Dec 2022
    Excellent tour. Great boat. Captain very knowledgeable about surrounding culture. 10/10 experience and great atmosphere
    Amazing time! The captain...
    Rachel_P, Dec 2022
    Amazing time! The captain was awesome and told us a lot about the island. The views were incredible! Highly recommend!!
    Catamaran Fun!
    Capri_B, Oct 2022
    I enjoyed the sunset sail in Moorea. Leo was a great host and captain. It was a cloudy and windy day (not his fault) and the water was a bit rough. It is a fun (not glamorous) catamaran. Plan to get wet! I would do this again, but would definitely wear a swimsuit with a cover up rather than the dress I wore. It is also hard to get in and out of both the dingy and the catamaran gracefully in a dress. Take a towel and enjoy the ride. The only reason I gave this 4 stars instead of 5 is because my husband got food poisoning the day of our trip and was too sick to go. I tried to cancel but they would not give us a refund. So I went by myself but paid for 2 people. It was still fun and I enjoyed chatting with the other two lovely couples who were also on the boat.
    What a delight!
    KylieFaye_J, Oct 2022
    Sailed on the Taboo with Leo and it was such a delight. The sunset was amazing, service brilliant, we were lucky enough to see some whales. Do yourself a favour and don't miss this.
    Very chill cruise
    Tori_H, Oct 2022
    We really enjoyed our mellow sunset cruise. Our Captain was knowledgable and very safe. The highlight was seeing the whales play for 15-20 mins. Gorgeous bays to sail in.
    Awesome experience, better views
    Austin_R, Sept 2022
    Beautiful sunset, smooth sailing despite some rougher waters that day. Leo was knowledgeable and very pleasant.
    Incredible sunset
    Jill_B, Sept 2022
    We took our time and had a beautiful cruise. The captain was informative and willing to share stories. The sky was unlike anything I’ve ever seen. We even took time to look for a whale when we saw a spout.
    Sunset in Moorea
    Lorraine_B, Sept 2022
    We had a wonderful evening Leo was a perfect host and captain the sunset over Moorea is beautiful and well worth seeing from the lagoon
    Fantastic End To Stay on Moorea
    William_B, Aug 2022
    What an end to our time on Moorea! A must do while you are on the island. The crew made us feel at home right away and provided an absolutely wonderful experience. Originally we were to do this on a Monday, but rain and storms forced us to cancel, but Leo and Liza made sure that we were able to reschedule to a day that had a better forecast. During the tour we encountered rain, and Leo ensured that we all were comfortable and kept the spirits alive. A fantastic captain! Jorge was along for the ride learning and was so warm and welcoming as well. I could not have asked for a better way to end my time on Moorea with my mother. Take this trip and soak up the views. You’ll fall in love with the island and this crew.
