Amazing experience

Swimming with rays and sharks was an amazing experience. Also the lunch afterwards at the motu was great.

Excellent tour. Lots of snorkeling opportunities too. 2nd year in a row we took this tour and really enjoyed the time allocated to experience the snorkeling and food and Motu experience. Food included salads, breads, chicken, cooked and raw fish. Everything was fresh and very clean and neat. Well prepared for every taste.

Good trip, but too much time spent on the island where there was basically no beach and no where to walk. Food served was good. Swim with the sharks and rays was entertaining.

This was an amazing tour, we swam with sharks and stingrays for about an hour. We could touch them as the tour guides had feed for them. Then we had a typical Polynesian meal with a demo of various way to prepare fish, open coconuts for the milk. We really had a good time.

The tour was good but at the picnic the guide kept going into the woods to smoke ganja. He and some of the servers finally just started smoking it in front of the guests and they quit going into the woods. Their eyes were glossy and they were laughing ridiculously. They were very obviously high and as I said, they quit trying to hide it after about awhile.

Excellent trip. The scenery is absolutely amazing. The waters are pristine and one cannot describe the colours. The swim with the rays and sharks was a good experience. The crew on the boat were very friendly and kept us entertained. The beach lunch was good with a good variety of food. I enjoyed the BBQ'ed marlin steaks the most.

Talk about amazing, put it on your bucket list, the tour was well organised, once we made contact at the dock it all fell into place. Short bus ride to the boat and educated along the way about there cultures, places of worship, landmarks. Boat ride 40min to where we swam with sharks, rays and other sea life. Our guide made us feel very comfortable, had us laughing most of the time. Lunch, they put on a local feed and they picked my wife out of the crowd to help prepare the fresh salmon. The video pictures we have takin will remain with us for ever. We will be back with the rest of the family. Well done to the tour company, to the guide hope to see you again.

We are rating this tour as Amazing even though rain and wind was the weather of the day. We've all had to learn to take the weather as is, haven't we? We were taken to an area of sharks that are fed by tour operators and are harmless. What a thrill to be in the same water with them. There were also rays which were very large. A beach area is where a bar-b-que lunch was served. The area is not fancy but there is a covered area where they cook the meat chicken and fish and served salads, etc. They provided refreshments while waiting for the lunch to be served. Locals also provided their music all the while we were there. The owner of this particular business looked out for our comfort and helped in any way he could -- always aware. He was also the boat operator. We are sorry we didn't obtain his name. He had others helping also with the beach area. The only recommendation we would make is to have curtains on the sides of the boat for rainy windy days, like we had. The sun came out mid-afternoon!!
