Moorea Like a Local: Lagoon Cruise Including Snorkeling and Fishing with Polynesian Lunch

    What to Expect
    Begin your day in the life of a local as you depart your hotel for a morning on the water.

    Hop aboard your guides private outrigger and set sail for your fishing, snorkeling and paddling expedition. Your guide will teach you how to paddle like a local as well as fish with a net, if weather and swell conditions are good, as you catch your lunch for the day. Return to the island stopping briefly in the lagoon where you will have time to snorkel and find additional fish and shellfish, traditional in any Polynesian meal. If the weather is unfavorable, your guide will instead take you to a range of archaeological sites and teach you about the history and legends of Moorea.

    As you arrive back on the island, take a short walk to a local home in the valley where you will learn how to make coconut milk and prepare your traditional Polynesian barbecue lunch of grilled fish, raw fish and local vegetables.

    After lunch, visit your local guides “Fa'apu”, an organic plantation where you will indulge in a range of seasonal fresh fruits. Time permitting, you will then stop by the river to feed the eels. Throughout the day you will also have the opportunity to try your hand at coconut palm braiding.

    Be returned to your hotel at approximately 4:30pm.

    My wife and I spent 11 days in FP for our honeymoon and this was the first activity of our trip. It was easily the highlight of our vacation. Sam/Piryani, Sylvie, and Manu were the most incredible hosts. Paddling out on the lagoon in the outrigger and fishing were so much fun

    What an adventure! We just got done spending the day with Sam, Sylvie and Lloyd. The outrigger canoes were a unique local experience. My only suggestion would be to bring your own snorkeling gear, especially if you have big feet. Tons of local knowledge and tips are given while

    If you want to truly experience the Tahitian culture this is the tour for you. You will go fishing with his cousin, then go up to his home in the valley he will cook you a local meal with the fish we caught. We then walked around his farm before heading back to the ship.
