    Perfect private day!
    Tamara_S, Mar 2023
    Arrived in Moorea on the WindSpirit. Booked this as a private tour due to time constraints. I received amazing communication ahead of time as to time and location. We walked off the dock and our ride was waiting. Spent an amazing day snorkeling with rats, shark and various other fish. Got to see the underground statues and enjoy fresh local fruit and rum punch. It was a perfect day and the crew was funny, attentive and professional. Cheers to Taboo
    Highly recommend!

    Leo was a fabulous captain and was very knowledgeable about the local history and also geography. Highly recommend. He was so much fun for our family private group! Thank you Captain Leo!
    Book it!

    I had a great time. We went at my pace. The hosts pointed things out while snorkeling that i would have missed on my own. They shared history of the islands and provided a delicious rum punch and the best fruit I have ever tasted.
    Fantastic Experience with Great Mix of Snorkeling and Romantic Sailing
    Dalton_P, Nov 2022
    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.
    Very Reasonably Priced. Definitely a must do!!

    Phenomenal Snorkeling Experience
    sweetbugmom, May 2022
    Phenomenal experience. Kevin and Fanny took us to 3 different snorkeling spots - one with sharks and rays, a coral garden (breathtaking) and the underwater tikis. The boat was great and they both were informative guides. This was by far the best snorkeling trip my husband and I have been on. Highly recommend 💯

    Demi journée en privée avec caro qui nous expliqué la faune et le capitaine Chris. Une journée au top en semaine. Lieu parfait pour du snorkling avec enfant.
