Une belle découverte du lagon : d’abord avec les tikis puis grosse émotion en nageant avec les raies et les requins dans une ambiance chaleureuse

On a passé une journée incroyable sur le lagon et au dela. Requins, raies, poissons multicolores, couché de soleil... Enplus, notre capitaine est un vrai passionné: à la fois de la navigation et des légendes locales

  • 4.5 / 5

On a passé une journée extra! Paysages magnifiques, chaque plongée était différente et dans des spots incroyables. On en a prit plein les yeux! C’était génial! Et quel bonheur de pouvoir naviguer sur un bateau original, loin des bateaux/barques touristiques.

Activité très conviviale sur cette pirogue traditionnelle, Roland nous conte la culture polynésienne et nous laisse prendre la barre On navigue entre le lagon et l'océan. Excellente dégustation de fruits frais, rencontre avec les raies et les requins à pointe noire. Une sortie au top !

  • 5 / 5

Absolutely stunning experience - from the beginning to the end. We had the opportunity to learn more about the wildlife in the lagoon, specificities of Moorea and spent some time swimming with the sharks and sting rays. Very friendly and authentic experience - sailing on traditional Polynesian boats was extraordinary.

Activité passionnante et conviviale dans un cadre intime, le savoir et le savoir-faire de Raphael vous plongera dans la culture Polynésienne et leur histoire avec les traditionnelles pirogues et la navigation. Vous apprendrez à hisser les voiles et à naviguer, dans un cadre idyllique entre lagon et océan. Découverte de spots superbes... Dégustation de produits frais et locaux au couché de soleil, récits de l’histoire et de la culture locale. Sortie passionnante dans un cadre exceptionnel, avec une équipe formidable, à faire !!!
