More sea life than expected.
More sea life than expected. Get in the water FIRST and enjoy yourself SNORKELING ON TOP OF THE WATER! (before people with no idea walk all over the coral and seabed stirring up all the sand so you can’t see anything! Grrr...)

¾ Day Lagoon Tour with Polynesian Feast with Patrick of Mahoi Nui, it was fantastic! We started off boarding a catamaran bound for 3 different snorkeling stops. Patrick and the boys sang and played ukuleles whilst we were on our journey. We swam/snorkeled with black-tipped reef sharks, stings rays and a multitude of tropical fish. Then we went to a private island for a Polynesian feast, much like a Hawaiian luau complete with delicious food and a fire dance performed by Patrick himself. The excursion was about 6 hours in duration and was the best we’ve experienced. Highly recommended. Read Less

An old well-decorated boat with a mouldy canopy operated by a local family entertained us with music and singing before reaching the wonderful sight of them feeding the sharks and stingrays. Many of us on the boat also joined them in the water. The water in this area is only waist high and translucent. So take a towel and put your swimmers on before leaving the ship (not after) so you can jump in the water to touch the stingrays and sharks (1 metre long) and enjoy the experience. These aquatic animals, because they are fed by the locals on a regular basis, seem to have become pets. Read Less

Wonderful day. Swam with the sharks at 3 different locations, at each area the water depth was greater than the previous, & the sharks were bigger. Beautiful tropical island barbecue lunch on a motu.

All ships water tours were cancelled due to weather but this tour went ahead, I'm glad to say. Patrick, who runs the tours, was with our boat and he explained things to us in an amusing way. Snorkelling with Black Tip Sharks and Stingrays was amazing. Then we went to another location to snorkel with tropical fish. This too was amazing - so many fish! We then went to a Motu for a freshly cooked BBQ lunch. It was raining but that didn't matter - it was all good fun. Read Less
