The Intercontinental Tahiti in Papeete has day passes but it was very hard to nail down availability and amenities a few months ago. So gave up. Have stayed there in the past and it's very nice, beautiful views and lovely pool. Not much of a beach. reservation.tahitiregion@ihg.com 

 

The Hilton Moorea is $85pp and was it ever worth it! Spent a day there in December and it has everything going for it. Great snorkeling beach, beautiful pool, all watersports and a fabulous and huge lunch included. We'll be back there.

The Intercontinental Bora Bora is on one of the prettiest beaches in BB, Matira Beach. This too is a beautiful facility and they have day passes. intercontinental.borabora.lemoana@ihg.com

 

Have to ask why you are going  to spend your days at resorts when there is so much to see. BB is the most beautiful place I've ever been to and Moorea is a close second. So much to do on and in the water. And on land.

Happy cruising.

We will visit next year and I'm starting my research to see what we could do on the islands.

How do you get to the Hilton from the tender port.  Is it easy?  We are on a princess cruise.

We used Torea Nui Transport taxi service. https://toreanui.com/

They were waiting for us right at the pier. Told them when we'd be arriving and when we wanted to be picked up from the Hilton. Very prompt and professional. 1000XPF per person each way.

If by chance you need recommendations for snorkel operators or transportation on any of the islands be happy to help. We did 17 days in Tahiti on Wind Spirit In December. You'll get onboard your ship, look around and thank heaven you decided to visit Tahiti. Best wishes.

 

We did this in Moore a in Oct and it was AWESOME.. The price was $213 for both of us on one jet ski.

We arrive in Papeete by plane after 7:00pm so booked a one night stay at a local B&B after reading reviews. We willthen  be staying two nights in Morrea pre cruise in an overwater bungalow at the Manava resort.  Would you recommend renting a car one day to go,around the island or just enjoy the resort? Also, either prior to taking the ferry to Moorea or upon our return to Papeete before boarding cruise ship, do you recommend a tour of the island or would we be too rushed? We will be in Bora Bora two days and booked a tour with Patrick's for the first day so looking for suggestions for day two.

Rent a car ..... the Manava doesn't have a great beach so you will need to get out and enjoy the island. The 'Aquarium'  is good for snorkeling and you must drive to the Belvedere, enjoy Carmeline;s and maybe a lunch at Snack Mahana.

As far as things to do on Day 2 in Bora Bora....I'm an avid snorkeler and Bora Bora is a snorkeler's paradise. I'd choose a second day snorkeling, Tohora Bora Bora,

Lagoon Service

or Pure Snorkeling.

Lagoon Service has their own private motu which is likely the most beautiful place I've been. Tohora BB is my favorite just because it is the most challenging and also does whale watching in season. There are island day tours which take advantage of the views of the lagoon, but to me BB is all about being in the water.

TBK might be able to advise on BB land tours.

 

I think you might feel rushed doing a tour of Tahiti before the ferry to Moorea- takes 3-4 hours to circle. Get over to Moorea and enjoy that! But if you do it on your return before boarding the ship, Yota Tahiti does island tours at a fair price.  https://www.yotatahiti.com/index.php/en/
