Raiatea- other snorkeling besides L'Excursion Bleue?

Recommended Posts

Has anyone done anything from Raiatea other than Bruno's L 'Excursion Bleue?

Have 2 days in Raiatea and doing one day on L' Excursion Bleue which was wonderful the last time. Looking for something else that does snorkeling only- dh does not want to do the kayaking or sacred sites tours.

Checked with Te Mara Nui and they're somewhat expensive for 1/2 day. Also while their diving reviews were wonderful, snorkeling reviews not so great. Arii Moana sounds like it's virtually the same tour as Bruno's. I've emailed them 3x anyway with no response.

 

Anyone done anything else in Raiatea? I recall seeing operators trying to attract customers at the dock while we were headed over to Bruno's boat.

???

Petoonya,

We went with Jeremie of Raiatea Jet for a full day. One of our best days of the trip. Several snorkel stops, dolphins jumping around the jet skis, stopped on several small motus, stopped at a non-retail pearl farm to watch them harvest.

We were the only clients that day, but even with groups he will customize the day for your preference. Good ratings on trip advisor.

Wow thanks so much! I wish I could get my husband to go for jet ski but he had a bad experience and that was it for him. But it looks wonderful. Like it could be the best tour of the cruise. I emailed him anyway just to see if he might have a access to a boat but doubtful. Thanks again. Looks fantastic.
