Kayaking in a transparent kayak while taking in all the beautiful tropical landscapes surrounding us above & below the water.
While paddling/snorkeling we saw the most beautiful tropical fish/coral everywhere throughout the crystal clear turquoise waters.
Saving the best for last we snorkeled & swam w/the stingrays & black tipped reef sharks & many tropical fish…this was absolutely by far the best experience/excursion we’ve ever had/done!
Along the way prior to the last stop we had a tasty tropical drink (rum mango/pineapple), & a couple snacks (brownie/fruit) in the middle of the ocean on a beautiful scenic sandbar that was ankle deep.
We’ve travelled a lot of places from Cuba, Bahamas, DR, Costa Rica, Jamaica,Turks & Caicos, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, Mexico, Curacao etc..& we’ve done a lot of excursions, & this was by far the best one we’ve done. We plan on coming back to snorkel/swim w/humpback whales, & we plan on doing this transparent kayak stingray/shark excursion again.
Very reasonable price for excursion $109 total for 2 ppl.
We also plan on staying on Moorea next time too... Definitely would suggest staying on Moorea (we stayed in Tahiti & travelled to Moorea to do this excursion), & it was a bit tricky finding a cab back to the ferry after the excursion.
The Taxi/Ferry was quite an added expense to do excursion $47 US round trip for 2 for the Ferry, $55 US one way for Taxi from Ferry Port to excursion location (Intercontinental Hotel/15-20 minute drive), & $55 US one way for Taxi from excursion (Intercontinental Hotel/15-20 minute drive) to Ferry Port.
Food is quite expensive on Tahiti/Moorea & Taxis…
I would suggest per couple you have @ least $2000 US total cash for a 1 week stay to solely have on hand as a minimum for Food/Taxis.
Taxis really ate (no pun intended) up our money quickly over any Food expenses…
A lot of places don’t take Credit Cards/Debit, & granted if you use your Debit @ an out of network ATM you will pay $3-5 ATM Fee, but whether Credit Card or Debit/ATM you will also get hit w/International Fees & Conversion Fees.
Just a heads up…this was the first place we’ve travelled where the Conversion Ratio was different everywhere from US $ to Tahitian $ & what each place was charging for potentially same service/Items.
Hotel/Downtown/Bank/Airport/Taxis are ALL different…88-1, 106-1, 123-1, 90-1, so pay attention & ask questions before hand.
October is when we travelled & it was absolutely perfect weather, but is the more expensive time to travel to Tahiti/Moorea.
