Best Sunset and Snorkeling Tour EVER!!!
noelleraejohnson, 10-07-2022
This was by far the best activity we did during our time in Tahiti. Captain Gabriel and Alouise were absolutely amazing! My boyfriend and I did a private half day snorkeling tour and also the sunset picnic tour. I highly recommend booking a private tour, as we were able to really get to know Gabriel and Aliouse on a friend basis and learn a lot about them and the Tahitian culture. We were so sad when it was time to leave them because the experience was just so great! They were extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of Tahiti, as well as aquatic life. You can tell they both have a true passion for what they do. Also, Gabriel made home-made fish with rice and coconut milk and fruit. The RUM PUNCH ESPECIALLY that Gabriel made for us was AMAZING. We snorkeled with sting rays and saw turtles, dolphins, LOTS of different type of fish, and a wrecked plane + ships underwater. During our sunset tour, there were many clouds out and it ended up raining, but it was hard to notice the rain after a few rum punches and such good company. They also provided parkas which helped a lot. We enjoyed ourselves so much even during the rain! 1000/10 experience, highly highly recommend!!! Thank you Gabriel and Aliouse for such a lovely time, we will never forget this experience!
Great snorkeling trip

We contacted Gabriel the afternoon before we wanted to go. He didn’t have anyone else booked for that day but kindly offered to do a private trip for 2 for a very reasonable price. We went to 4 sites- got to see tons of cool fish, turtles, rays, and sharks. He was very knowledgeable about the fish and the area. Also environmentally conscious!! Would definitely recommend a trip with them if you have a free morning!
Best snorkeling trip on our vacation

Myself and my wife and son (9 years old) did a snorkeling trip and it was amazing. Gabriel and Eva were fantastic and took us to several spots. Gabriel knows the area very well and is super easy to talk to. He speaks 5 or 6 languages.
Snorkeling with the StingRays!

Highly recommend this tour! Gabriel was a great guide. We felt like we were hanging out with knowledgeable friends and it did not feel like a rushed “touristy” type of excursion. We saw all kinds of fish, ship/plane wrecks, stingrays, etc. The homemade RumPunch was awesome, definitely a unique touch to a fun tour! My only regret was not having a waterproof camera to capture everything.
super après-midi

Super après-midi avec gabriel et son équipage, tous très sympa. Nous avons apprécié l'apéro sur le bateau avec coucher de soleil.
2 super spots avec y compris des tortues. Enfin arrêt pour approcher des raies.

Sortie à recommander ! Encore merci
