On March 7, 2018 we arrive in Papeete about 5:30 AM on Air Tahiti Nui flight 101 from Los Angeles. Boarding for our cruise starts around 1 PM, so we wanted something to do until then. Found a very accommodating transfer and tour service who offered us two options.

1: If we can find 4 other people who want to join us who are on the same flight, they'll pick all of us up with our luggage for a 4 hour private tour in an 8 passenger air-conditioned van that can include a breakfast stop along the way. Drop-off at the port or in town. $50 per person and only 6 people.

2: If we can't find 4 others, they'll still pick us up as we exit from customs/baggage and take us to the port. If the porters will accept luggage early - great. Otherwise they'll keep the bags in the van and take us to a nearby restaurant for breakfast and a local stroll until their group tour (up to 8 people) starts around 9 AM. Drop off back at the port. This option is $55/person - still a good deal.

You might try posting this (if you haven't already) on the Roll Call for your cruise. That way you are reaching other people on your specific cruise. God luck!
