We would appreciate any comments or suggestions for tours/excursions on the following islands. Bora Bora, Raitea, and Moorea.
Has anyone taken Sharkboy's tour in Bora Bora, Bruno's Tahaa in Raitea, or a shark/ray snorkel tour in Moorea? We already have Marc's tour booked for Huahine, do the others compare or are they a waste of money?
We just returned from the TP on 5-17-04. You will have a great time. The best trip we have taken EVER! We did NOT do any tours off the ship and we were proud. They are much more expensive and crowded.
In Huhaine- Marc's picnic is a MUST!!! Absolutely wonderful. The entertainment was great too. $80pp (all day)
Moorea- we did the helmet dive with aquablue (vincent is the owner)-
$65.00pp- VERY good tour. (3 hours)
Bora Bora- sunset cruise with Taravana charters)Richard Postma owner- $65pp. Wonderful. We also rented a car right off the docks and toured the island and ate lunch and dinner at Bloody Marys. Lunch (mahi mahi burger) was great. Dinner(ribs) nasty and much more expensive. We did SharkBoy the second day. It was nice, but not near as good as Mata in Tahaa
Raitiea- We had reserved Bruno's, but like many messages we had seen posted, he never showed up. We ended up going with Mata Tours right at the pier. Stephan was the owner. He was a hoot and was wonderful. Coral gardens were awesome, stingray feeding, sharkfeeding, and tour around Tahaa. ( It was long, so if we were you just tell him after you get through at the Coral Gardens to carry you back to the ship) $40pp all day. one of our favorite tours.
Cook Islands-we rented a scootcar (Jetsave rentals on the internet) and had a great, but bumpy and loud ride around the island and then went shopping. Make sure you change your money into NZ dollars at the pier. $65NZ ($40usd)
No matter what you end up doing, you will have a blast. If it rains on one of your snorkel tours, go on anyway, the water is so clear it really doesn't matter.
Have you been on your cruise to Tahiti yet? Going in June, staying 3 nights on Huahine. Did you do the excursion there? Believe you said Marc's? Interested in knowing more about it and how you enjoyed Huahine. Thankyou I am going to be on the Paul Gaughin
