Good exercise with Kayaking and great location for snorkeling, swim with sharks and rays.
People may say swimming with the sharks is a non-starter and I say make it a starter.

Really fun activity!
Nathan_R, Jan 2022
We had such a wonderful time on the private couple's sunset kayaking experience. Our guide Moana was so friendly, genuine, and knowledgable about the island. We kayaked to one of the motus, ate delicious bananas and chocolate cakes homemade by our guide, and drank refreshing pineapple juice. Then Moana took us to an awesome snorkeling spot, where we got to snorkel with sharks and rays! Then we caught the sunset on the way back to the dock. It was so fun and a very memorable experience. Highly recommend. Thank you!!

Thank you for the nice comment, it was a pleasure to introduce you to our island Moana
Unexpectedly Fantastic Kayak Tour
Kristy_M, Jul 2021
This was an unexpectedly awesome experience. Kayaking is way more challenging than we thought it would be but it was a great workout. We had Hugo as our guide and he was fantastic. So fun and patient with us newbies and great with easing our nervousness interacting with the sting rays and sharks. He also brought us passion fruit (yum!) from his own garden and made us delicious rum cocktails to enjoy while we swam with the fish. The lagoon is clear and too beautiful for words. We did the private sunset tour and Hugo timed it perfectly so we’d be in an amazing spot to catch the sun going down. It was a great tour with a great guide. Thanks Hugo!

A fun experience
BING_S, Dec 2019
Good exercise with Kayaking and great location for snorkeling, swim with sharks and rays. Tour guides were kind and considerate to help novice kayaker, elders and kids. Would be better if snorkeling gears provided are in better condition, water bottles are cleaner and towels are provided. For some reason my daughter's water shoes got lost (kayak was flipped over after they got off) so I hope customer's property could be taken better care of in the future. Sun exposure would be high, so be prepared.

Just Something You Should Do
Jerome_C, Jun 2019
We booked this excursion as kayak novices because the transparent kayak was just too cool to ignore. After my wife and I found our rhythm it was smooth sailing. Until we hit the channel on our way to the private island. Nothing major just stronger currents the day we went out. Our first stop was a private island where we took a tour snorkeling around the coral reefs, it was spectacular. Warning the reefs hurt if you bang your knee into them as I did :) We followed the swim up with snacks provided by our guide. The currents continued to pick up and we agreed to walk to the area where the stingrays and blacktip sharks were. The water was no more than 5 feet deep and some chose to swim there. People may say swimming with the sharks is a non-starter and I say make it a starter. These beautiful creatures posed no threats to us as none came any closer than 10 feet from me. I would say the average size was about 5 feet and they swam around minding their own business. As for the stingrays, well they're another story. Like a puppy waiting for you to come home they're there to greet you. I would highly recommend this excursion.

Unforgettable, thrilling experience!
Imelda H, Jul 2018
She was one of those tour guide you will never forget because of her personal care, making sure that everyone are always on the same phase, prepared our unexpected dessert, baked brownies, fruits and a very soothing relaxing drink in a private island. She cared for us like her own family members. If you don’t remember me, my husband and my 18 yrs old son, I’m the one with a disability and have a walker. Thank you so much for all the hard work, you made our wonderful summer vacation so much fun! Sorry I forgot your name.
Awesome Adventure!
