We had the pleasure of participating in an excursion with Ari'i last week.  It was fantastic!  He took us to one location to interact with sting rays while black-tip sharks calmly circled us.  For a while it was just the three of us (and his two young daughters, on school holiday).  Pure magic.  The rays glided around us, gently tapping...

Our tour with Maohi Nui tours was booked with two other couples. There were six of us in a boat with one guide (Patrick). The boat is constructed to look like or to be an outrigger. It was adorned with leaves and palm fronds to give it a profound Polynesian allure. The tour was arranged as a 6 hour tour.... More

We came in to Bora Bora on a cruise ship. We were there for 2 days and I did Patrick's tour both days. I did quite a few tours like this on several different islands and Patrick's was by far the best. The swimming with the sharks and rays was wonderful. Snorkeling was amazing. The lunch on his families motu... More

We booked the full day Lagoon Tour and loved every minute of it. We don't snorkel often but this was amazing. The water, the fish and the reefs are so beautiful. At one point my husband observed 5 sharks circling me as I just floated enjoying the moment. The meal was one of the best we had during our stay... More

Did a snorkel tour that included 3 stops: one with 2 kinds of sharks, another with sting rays, and one at a coral gardens. While all 3 stops were beautiful in terms of the marine life, absolutely stunning, what made this tour unique was that our guide, Ari'i, was really really good. He had good information to share and was... More

We arrived in Bora Bora and had booked the 1/2day Sharks, Stingrays and Snorkel tour. We absolutely loved it! Miss 10 jumped straight in with the sharks as well as husband. Miss 7 and I were a bit slower, but we did it and were glad we were brave enough to! The water was deep here, but you could still... More

Patrick will make it happen! We opted for a simple Polynesian ceremony - which meant just the two of us, a Polynesian "minister", and a Ukelele player. It was beautiful. It was our 10th anniversary and a surprise to my husband so we didn't actually have separate vows prepared. We didn't need them. The standard "script" was so appropriate and... More

One of the best tours we have taken in our travels around the world. We swam with the Sharks, hugged the Rays, and snorkeled in the underwater garden. We then went to Patrick's private island for a pig roast this was followed by Polynesian dances. Then it was time to complete our outrigger boat ride around Bora Bora. A most... More
