    Fantastic End To Stay on Moorea
    William_B, Aug 2022
    What an end to our time on Moorea! A must do while you are on the island. The crew made us feel at home right away and provided an absolutely wonderful experience. Originally we were to do this on a Monday, but rain and storms forced us to cancel, but Leo and Liza made sure that we were able to reschedule to a day that had a better forecast. During the tour we encountered rain, and Leo ensured that we all were comfortable and kept the spirits alive. A fantastic captain! Jorge was along for the ride learning and was so warm and welcoming as well. I could not have asked for a better way to end my time on Moorea with my mother. Take this trip and soak up the views. You’ll fall in love with the island and this crew.
    Relaxing evening with great views
    Todd_E, Feb 2022
    This is a great sunset cruise, especially for those near the Hilton on Moorea. They’ll pick you up from the resort and you may even be dropped off at the dock. Great guide that speaks French and English. It doesn’t hurt that he makes better Mai Tais than the resort!

    Hi Todd, thanks for your great review about our Sunset Cruise and about our cocktails ... ;-) Mauruuru Roa Léo and Liza
    Catamaran Fun!
    Capri_B, Oct 2022
    I enjoyed the sunset sail in Moorea. Leo was a great host and captain. It was a cloudy and windy day (not his fault) and the water was a bit rough. It is a fun (not glamorous) catamaran. Plan to get wet! I would do this again, but would definitely wear a swimsuit with a cover up rather than the dress I wore. It is also hard to get in and out of both the dingy and the catamaran gracefully in a dress. Take a towel and enjoy the ride. The only reason I gave this 4 stars instead of 5 is because my husband got food poisoning the day of our trip and was too sick to go. I tried to cancel but they would not give us a refund. So I went by myself but paid for 2 people. It was still fun and I enjoyed chatting with the other two lovely couples who were also on the boat.
    What a delight!
    KylieFaye_J, Oct 2022
    Sailed on the Taboo with Leo and it was such a delight. The sunset was amazing, service brilliant, we were lucky enough to see some whales. Do yourself a favour and don't miss this.
    Sunset in Moorea

    Great Sailing Catamaran Experience
    Noah_H, Jul 2022
    This was an amazing sunset Catamaran. Captain Leo told me and my family about the history of Moorea, sailed us around the islands many bays explaining the significance of each one. I really enjoyed the smooth sailing, and the great Captain Leo. Overall it was one of the best Catamaran experiences I have had. Would 100% reccomend to anyone looking to enjoy the sunset. 10/10.
    Response from Host, Aug 2022
    Thanks Noah !! Nice reading your words about your experience on a Sunset Cruise us. You are making Léo a proud captain !! :-) Mauruuru Roa Léo and Liza
    Perfect sunset cruise!
    Katherine_D, Apr 2022
    Amazing cruise! Leo is a wonderful captain who made sure everyone had a great time and saw a great sunset! Such a beautiful experience and so much better than taking a large impersonal tour. He’s fluent in French and English, and he also provided lots of interesting facts about the island. Our children had a wonderful time. And we enjoyed the mai tais and the personalized tour!
    We had a wonderful sunset...
    Blake_K, Mar 2022
    We had a wonderful sunset cruise with Kevin! We chose this for our honeymoon trip to Moorea and would reccomend it to anyone looking for a romantic experience on the water.
    Laurenjohnston21, Mar 2022
    My favorite thing we did in Moorea! Kevin, the captain, was incredible. He was so knowledgeable about the island and marine life. I HIGHLY recommend this to everyone!

    A Beautiful, Romantic Experience
    Kristy_M, Jul 2021
    While the weather didn’t fully cooperate, my hubby and I were still able to see some beautiful sights during our sunset tour including an incredible rainbow! Leo was a fantastic captain and guide and we very much enjoyed our trip with him. The boat picked us up and dropped us off right from the dock at the Hilton where we were staying. We highly recommend this sunset tour, especially for those couples celebrating a romantic occasion!
    Response from Host, Jul 2021
    Hi Kristy, thanks for coming us for celebrating a romantic occasion :-) the weather is not always prefect even in Polynesia but we are doing our best to adapt and make sure that our sailing tours are enjoyable. Mauruuru for your message Léo and Liza
    Highlight of our trip
    Luke_C, Jan 2021
    What an amazing experience! Leo is a fantastic captain and guide. He told us all about the island and the history of the different locations. The sunset was absolutely gorgeous, it is something that you must experience for yourself! 10/10 would recommend for anyone coming to visit and I would definitely do it again when we come back!
    Response from Host, Jan 2021
    Mauruuru Luke for your Great Review ;-) Thanks for recommending our Sunset Cruise !! Captain Léo will be pleased to welcome you again next time you come to visit Moorea.
    Romantic evening
    Mary_L, Jan 2020
    We are so glad we did this! It's an incredibly romantic way to see the two bays and to go outside the reef. Even if it's raining, show up. The skies clear and they'll still go. With the dark layer of clouds, the sun shining through and the spectacular view of the coast, it's well worth it! The other guests were delightful, the skipper adorable.
    Response from Host, Jan 2020
    Thanks you Steven for your nice reviews about the Sunset tour with us. Sometime of the nicest light comes on a cloudy day and balance stays right ;-)
    Very chill cruise
    Tori_H, Oct 2022
    We really enjoyed our mellow sunset cruise. Our Captain was knowledgable and very safe. The highlight was seeing the whales play for 15-20 mins. Gorgeous bays to sail in.
    Awesome experience, better views
    Austin_R, Sep 2022
    Beautiful sunset, smooth sailing despite some rougher waters that day. Leo was knowledgeable and very pleasant.
    Incredible sunset
    Jill_B, Sep 2022
    We took our time and had a beautiful cruise. The captain was informative and willing to share stories. The sky was unlike anything I’ve ever seen. We even took time to look for a whale when we saw a spout.
    Leo our tour guide was...
    Wendy_E, Aug 2022
    Leo our tour guide was great. He was very knowledgeable. Even though it was cloudy, sunset was colorful. Only downside was getting to and from Taboo in dinghy.
    Outstanding honeymoon sunset cruise!!
    Kevinvanous, Jun 2022
    The sunset cruise was fantastic and Leo is a very knowledgeable captain and tour guide! The sunset was beautiful and the Mai Tais were delicious! The boat is very comfortable and it is an intimate experience that is way better than doing a cruise on a larger boat.
    Response from Host, Jul 2022
    Thanks Kevin !! It was nice having on both of our tours and being able to show you Moorea's wonders in an intimate way. Mauruuru Roa for your great feedback Léo and Liza

    Sunset aboard Taboo!
    Mike_M, Jun 2022
    We had an amazing experience during our sunset cruise aboard Taboo! Kevin was informative, friendly, and personable. We learned some of the history and geology of the island, particularly the lagoons, and bays. “Magic Hour” was unbelievable and we were able to capture some phenomenal shots over the water during sunset. A memorable time and definitely worth the price for the trip across the Northern coast. Highly recommended. Thanks!
