Huahine Lagoon Picnic Excursion Reviews

Visit a secluded motu (small island) and enjoy a picnic lunch in the water. Tables are set up in shallow water along the beach for a Polynesian-style barbeque with juice and beer. There's also time for swimming or simply relaxing on the beach, and a pareo show.

Very nice snorkeling spot and motu picnic in the water, but it was not as inclusive as the tour operator's lagoon tour that is offered independent of Windstar. The tour operator is Poetaina Tours, and their non-Windstar tour also included a stop at a vanilla farm and pearl farm, and I think a few of the top attractions on Huahine, like the sacred blue-eyed eels. I wish they hadn't watered down the Windstar version of their tour. Read Less

We took our own excursion with Marc’s Moto Picnic. They could probably charge more; it was that good. We had a wonderful day. There were a couple of different tours going out from the pier with Marc’s. Marc and his assistants were organized and had it all under control. We were put on a smaller boat with 12 passengers, each with your own seat (with back). The first stop after a beautiful boat ride was to fairly shallow area about 50 feet from the shore. There were lots of hidden creatures swimming around coral heads in beautiful clear water. Next we toured a couple of lagoons on the way to a pearl farm in the middle of the bay. The tour was very interesting. We felt it could have been a quicker stop. We then did a drift snorkel. What a wonderful experience. Floating above the coral at about 1 knots. It felt much quicker! Just a short boat drive away was lunch on a beautiful tree lined beach. Right on the edge of the big, blue ocean, crashing over the protective reef. Lunch was prepared right in front of us. Tasty grilled striped marlin with Marc’s homemade tomato garlic salsa. Safron rice with raisins was my favorite. Grilled chicken, salad and plenty to drink. The local juice was fantastic. Dessert was local – I mean right there on that island local grown fruits. Watermelon, pineapple, sweet bananas, and cantelope. The entire lunch was cooked to perfection and tasted wonderful. BUT the best part was the flush toilets on this secluded island. There was even a fresh water shower to use after a day of snorkeling. That is a very nice touch! The entertainers sang the ENTIRE time we were there. They never took a break! It was a very enjoyable day!! It was a quick ten minute boat ride back to the pier to catch a tender back to the boat.

We booked this excursion even though it was very expensive, because we had enjoyed a similar one when there 9 years prior. This one was much smaller, but the spot was beautiful, the lunch was great, the guide was very informative and entertaining, and having had no sun, we finally had blue skies and beautiful water. We had hoped to snorkel twice, but only had one stop on the way to the motu. Pretty good snorkeling there - but the motu lunch spot had no snorkeling - no coral. And we didn't have time for a second snorkel after lunch. I do think time could have been managed to allow for another stop, but we throughly enjoyed our time. Our guide showed us how to crack a coconut, drink it, grate it, make Poison Cru, wrap a pareo, dance, and then she made numerous items from woven palm leaves on our way back - while the guys on the boat played ukelele and spoon music for us. We had a beautiful day on this tour. But I do think it was expensive. Read Less
