Activity description

Discover the authenticity of the island of Raiatea during a one day boat trip on its lagoon and its river Faaroa!

Faaroa Cruise's local guides will take you on a boat ride on the Raiatea lagoon to discover not only its paradisiacal landscapes worthy of the Polynesian islands, but also its culture and history through the sharing of their knowledge, as well as the visit of the Taputapuatea marae.

The beginning of this boat trip will be on the lagoon of Raiatea and its beautiful turquoise waters, then on the Faaroa River, the only navigable river in all of Polynesia! The motorized pirogue will then go along a jungle full of rich fauna and flora, as well as some villages that will allow you to observe the daily life of the inhabitants of Raiatea. The next part of the trip will be to the Taputapuatea marae, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Once the visit to the marae of Taputapuatea is over, you will be able to enjoy a relaxing moment on a motu of the Raiatea lagoon: swimming in the lagoon, but also a barbecue if you opt for the boat trip with lunch! Whether you plan to take this boat trip with your family, friends or even alone, you will spend an unforgettable day on the Raiatea lagoon thanks to Faaroa Cruise!

Nous avons eu la chance de bénéficier d' un tour privé vu qu il n y à ait que nous sur le bateau. Visitie de la rivière et du Marae. La visite de la rivière pourrait être rendu plus interactive. Heureusement que les guides sont d une grande gentillesse et très intéressants pour nous faire découvrir leur croyances ancestral. Il ne manque pas grand chose pour pouvoir faire une très belle excursion. Nous avons préféré l excursion vers Tahaa.

Nous avons passé une excellente journée. Chaque moment est une découverte intense. Nous avons apprécié l'authenticité du guide, du pilote et du cuisinier. Le programme est complet, associant les sublimes paysages de l'ile depuis le lagon et la rivière, l'histoire et les traditions et la baignade à partir du motu. Nous nous sommes régalés avec le repas. Activité que nous recommandons très fortement !

This was our 2nd tour with this captain. It was a great tour. They made sure to change up the BBQ lunch menu and served fish instead of chicken. Very thoughtful.
