Snorkeling Tours

The most beautiful way to discover Moorea and its aquatic fauna.

What if you combine the essential snorkeling trip with an original catamaran trip? Come aboard Taboo in a small group for an experience rich in emotions.

Meet stingrays and black tip sharks, swim in the coral garden of the motus in the middle of colorful fishes, stop over at the submerged Tiki and question these intriguing Polynesian statues and discover shells & fishes around… You also will see turtles during the sail and…hopefully, dolphins !

It is in an unreal setting, mountains with lush vegetation, crystal clear lagoon with multiple shades of blue and paradisiacal islets that you will set sail to meet the wild life of the lagoon.

Want to fly over the water in the net, lie on the mattresses or take advantage of a shaded area under the awning? Our catamaran offers you the choice of the king. And for the whole experience to taste tasty fresh and local fruits and refreshments made in Moorea.

In 4h or 6h, shared, private, à la carte… choose the tour that suits you! Whatever the version, our catamaran and your captain offer you an intimate and privileged moment: 8 passengers maximum and staggered departures to enjoy the lagoon in peace.

Equipment included: Loan of snorkeling equipment: fins, masks, snorkels, floating objects, lifeline, life jackets.

Snack & drinks included: Fresh and local fruit platters, cold drinks (local fruit juice, water, Maitai cocktail).

The weather in Polynesia changes very quickly and several times a day. Rain, wind, cloud, sun … do not affect the beauty of our landscapes and the presence of animals in the lagoon. Our tours are therefore maintained whatever the weather. Only the captain is the decision maker for the cancellation of a lap if the security conditions are not met.
