Just take a regular boat tour if you're looking for a close encounter to sting rays.
MALINA_S
, Jul. 2022
Other tours had a pick up at the ferry terminal we should have went twitch that option instead unfortunately there was no pick up and only fruits. When we got to the sting rays there we're other tour that ensure a close encounter to the sting rays.
icon Response from Host , Aug. 2022
Hi Malina, As we explained, feeding the rays and sharks is something forbidden in Moorea. We choose to respect it. Most of the boat are still doing it so it better to take a regular boat tour when you want to touch the raies and play with them like if they were pets rather than wild animals. Your booking was a last minute booking, we managed to get you a place on one of our tour with 24h notice. Our pick up was already booked so we were not able to pick you up at the ferry that day. We offered you to do the tour with us the next day so we would have been able to pick you up at the ferry. During the tour we served you drinks (fruits juices and cocktails) and fresh fruits as on all of our Shared Half Day Tours. Food, if that is what you were expected is something we organise on our Private Tours. Please read carefully the description of our tour and take into considerations the informations we give you when booking with us. Hope you enjoyed your trip and where able to get cool selfies with the rays the next day when you got back at the spot. :-) Mauruuru Léo and Liza

So much fun snorkeling Moorea!!

We had a lovely time on our half day snorkel tour! We saw sting rays, sharks, beautiful fish and amazing coral reefs. Fanny was a knowledable snorkel guide and took very good care of us. The boat was comfortable, the fresh fruit was delicious, and the Mai Tais were killer! Can't reccomend this tour enough!!

Amazing small group experience. Only 8 people including our group of 4. Swimming with black tip sharks was once in a lifetime and the underwater statues were also amazing.

The tour only allows for a small group (up to 8 people) which was lovely and Leo tries to beat the crowds. I was on a similar excursion on another island and the boat had 30 people and was chaotic. Leo's wife, Liza, picked us up from the pier and retuned us there. The catamaran is very comfortable and we had barely begun our journey when we saw dolphins and shortly after, turtles. We stopped several times and swam with black fin sharks, sting rays, as well as the amazing coral and sea life. The fish and coral were simply spectacular. Additionally, the boat was easy to get in and out of and was very relaxing in between stops. Leo did an excellent job and all of us on the outing were very impressed.

Kevin and Fanny had a great sense of humor and gave the tour in both French and English. It was filled with local culture and mythology as well as wildlife. In particular, I loved snorkeling at the underwater tikis -- a perfect mix of the two.

Marsha_B

It was nice to have just 8 people on the boat. It is a small catamaran but didn't feel crowded. The stairs into the water were easy to navigate. They only used the job on the trip, as well as the motor. We got to spots for snorkeling early which helped avoid the crowds. We stopped at a place to see sting Ray's and sharks, the coral garden and a place to see under water tiki culture. Glad we went.

Best snorkeling tour ever! Only 8 on the boat was perfect. Leo our guide was fantastic. He took us to snorkel with sharks and rays then to a coral reef between two islands and then a tiki garden. All of these before the big tour groups got there which was awesome! This was a great tour from start to finish!

Don’t miss this unique snorkeling trip!

Our guide Fanny and captain Kevin were great! Very knowledgeable, funny and they made it a great experience. We swam with blacktip reef sharks and rays, snorkeled through a coral garden & saw underwater tikis. Fanny also shared information about the area around us, including local legends & mythology. The hotel transfer option was also very fun - riding in the back of an enclosed pickup. Very nice pos-adventure cocktails and tips on what else to do on Moorea. Couldn’t have had more fun or a better experience. Don’t miss out on taking a trip on Taboo!!

Charming hosts, and a lovely day on the water. And we were mostly under sail, not under power, which was truly delightful (and doesn’t happen on many day trips).

Had a great day with Leo and Fanny. Saw lots of black tipped sharks and manta rays. Had two other stops at the coral reef and underwater tiki’s. We were well taken care of. Really liked having a small group of six. Would recommend this tour to everyone.

Leo was an amazing host on his awesome boat! We did the snorkel tour and the sunset tour he provides and they were some of the most memorable moments of our trip to Moorea. It felt like a private excursion around the island compared to the other boats we saw that hosted a ton of people at once. Highly recommending his tours! Thank you Leo!

Beautiful day On Taboo! Kevin and Fanny were wonderful guides- knowledgeable and we appreciate their good insight as we explored. We also. appreciated the more eco minded tour and went to three unique but equally fascinating snorkeling spots. Perfect half day since we were coming over just for the day from Tahiti. We would definitely return and recommend this tour to anyone looking for a good day trip to Moorea, or if you plan to be there for longer. Maruuru!

Highly recommend this experience for anyone visiting Moorea. The guide (Fanny) and captain (Kevin) were both fantastic! They knew the best spots, and were able to accommodate based on the weather conditions (it was windy and rainy the day we went). They were very knowledgeable about the island, and about the fish we would be seeing. We felt very comfortable with them as our guides, and this was definitely one of the highlights of our trip to Moorea.

Loved this snorkeling catamaran tour
Lyla_C
, Nov. 2021
We loved this trip. Initially getting up so early was not so desirable but later we realized it was to our advantage because there weren't many people out in the areas we were going to. Later as the day continued the places we went to were now full of so many people, it would have been crazy trying to snorkel with all those people. The excursion is perfect because there are not too many people on the catamaran, no more than 8. The captain was very informative. I snorkeled, my husband didn't and he had great conversations with the captain about the fish and the surrounding area. The snorkeling with the rays and the black tip reef sharks was a blast. Very enjoyable, we had a great time.

Thanks Lyla for the great review !! Happy you enjoyed the efforts made to arrive at the snorkeling spots before the crowds. Something very important to us. Mauruuru Leo and Liza
