The Crew

In our thirties and full of energy, passion, and dedication, we are committed to ensuring you have an unforgettable experience with us. We are Captain Léo and Liza, your enthusiastic hosts aboard Taboo. We are supported by a fantastic team of marine specialists and captains, all dedicated to making your journey extraordinary.

Our Commitment to the Environment

We are deeply concerned with environmental issues and strive to have the least ecological impact possible.

  • We choose local and high-quality products for our fruit and drink tastings.
  • We avoid plastic and use non-disposable tableware, such as Pyrex glasses, bamboo trays, and recyclable or biodegradable straws.
  • We use sunprotections that respect marine flora and fauna.
  • We repair and reuse items rather than throw them away.
  • We prefer sailing over using the engine to reduce emissions.
  • We do not feed rays and sharks to maintain their natural behavior.
  • We actively collect waste that we encounter during our trips.

Join our eco tour in preserving the beauty of Moorea and its vibrant ecosystem.

The Boat

About Taboo: Our Tiki 30 Catamaran

Taboo is a Tiki 30 catamaran, designed by the renowned James Wharram. As a pioneer in the construction of pleasure catamarans, Wharram drew inspiration from traditional Polynesian canoes to create exceptionally robust and unique vessels.

Built in England in 1998, Taboo embarked on its first major journey with a solo transatlantic crossing to North America. After many adventures, Taboo crossed the Pacific Ocean and now enjoys beautiful days under the sun and in the turquoise waters of French Polynesia.
