We are arriving very early morning 3 days before our cruise out of Papeete and are staying at the Hilton resort on Moorea for those 3 days. We know there is a ferry from Papeete to Moorea. My questions are do you have to pre purchase the tickets for the ferry before the day you arrive and are there taxis at the landing in Moorea to take us to the resort?

Thanks so much for any info. We go this coming January 2019. Julia

We just went to the ferry dock and bought a ticket for the next ferry. It's easier than expected. They put your luggage on a cart for loading and you can see it being loaded. There's a coffee shop upstairs where you can wait.

Thanks Jean. Do you remember if there were taxis available when you got to Moorea? Julia

I am not sure. We walked across the street and rented a car at Avis. I would highly recommend doing so if you are able as it gave us so much freedom. If you contact them directly, they will give you a better price than the general Avis site. Many people also use the Hilton transfer service.

Dandee,
Was there a reason you took Terevau? Looks like they have a lot more to choose from than Aremiti. I can't get an English version of their website though.

Timing was the reason. Both of them are quite similar in term of fare. The ride so short it doesn't really matter which one you take.

Came back 2 days ago after time at the Hilton on Moorea, Paul Gauguin Cruise and time on Vahine Island. We arrived into PPT early and took the taxi to the ferry. We arranged in advance with Albert's for a private transfer from the ferry to the Hilton, $40 for the two of us. They offered to stop at a market if we wanted food stuff.

How long a trip is it from the ferry to the Hilton? Are there any options other than a private transfer? Would you be willing to share the contact information for Alberts?
