Excursions - overwhelmed, help needed! )

Recommended Posts

I am sailing on the Tahiti Iti Itinerary in Feb, and I am compltly overwhelmed with which excursions to select - are there any that tend to book up well in advance?

 

Our itinerary is:

 

Papeete
Vairao, Tahiti Iti
Huahine
Bora Bora
Bora Bora
Taha'a
Moorea
Papeete

 

Any excursions that really stood out for you?

 

We hope to dive in Bora Bora and Moorea, but may snorkel in some of the other islands, haven't decided how to balance it yet. Would love to hear from some other divers!

Our favorite excursion of our entire cruise back in June was BRB-1602 on Bora Bora, the Snorkeling with Polynesian Feast. Three great snorkel stops, plus a great lunch with Polynesian pork from an earthen oven, chicken, fish, lobster tails, drinks. The excursion is by motorized outrigger and circles the entire lagoon.

I would agree  with JiminNC. BRB-1602 is a must if your thinking of the dreamy Bora Bora setting. On Tahaa/Motu Mahana the drift snorkel very nice. On Moorea rthink ATV/4X4 and make sure the excursion includes Magic Mountain.

Thanks! Did you see Manta Rays by chance? I am wondering if we need to dive in Bora Bora as there seems to be a lot of Ocean life at shallow depths!

 

Where there divers & snorkelers along on the same excursion for either?

Currently Marc's doesn't have any reservations for the date we are in Huahine - though we are 60 days out as off today so perhaps that will change.

 

My husband really wants to go the vanilla plantation - any feedback on the PG Huahine Iti tour?
