Our Passion • Your Dreams • Unforgettable Ocean Adventures

Ia orana, Manava, Maeva i Moorea!

With 20 years of experience in our business, as passionate marine naturalists and wildlife guides, come live our passion for Moorea, her lagoon & ocean, and Polynesia's marine wildlife! Let our team of captains and guides invite you on underwater encounters with humpback whales, dolphins, reef sharks, stingrays, and more. Look into the eye of a whale, dance with dolphins, steal away with stingrays, and lose your fear of sharks...come for a wildlife encounter!

Moorea Boat Tours is inspired by our passion for the ocean, based on a simple philosophy, which stems from pride in our Polynesian culture, respect for all marine wildlife, and a work ethic that tolerates no less than excellence! Through our educational expeditions and private charters, we hope to share with you the importance of marine conservation, and wish to leave you with memories that you will treasure for a lifetime! 

We specialize in small group adventures and private charters on board our two 27 foot speedboats (Capacity: 12+2 crew). We can also accommodate larger groups, schools, organizations, or companies aboard our 32 foot speedboat (Capacity: 30+2crew).

We originally booked the BBQ/shark/ray feeding tour. It was changed to just shark/ray feeding as the weather had been rainy the day before (that didn't make sense!). They dropped out price by $10; but they sold last minute seats to cruise ship people for $20 less than we paid! Very annoying. The actual shark/ray feeding was wonderful! There were dozens... More

Arnaud was our guide, he was very knowledgeable and friendly. The cocktails were good. It was not crowded, just ourselves and one other couple. Worth doing!

We were staying 10 days in Moorea and were looking all this time for a good lagoon trip. After informing ourselves about all trips we decide to go with Captain Heyfara. This was the best choice after all. This trip compare to all others, combine and all you can do outside and inside the lagoon. You are going not only... More

We stopped here on a cruise from Hawaii to Sydney and went on a boat tour for a few hours. We snorkelled and saw many beautiful fish but the highlight was feeding and swimming with the black tip reef sharks and the stingrays.

WOW... so many black tipped reef sharks and stingrays. You get to swim in crystal clear water with sharks and rays only metres away from you. Safe for everyone as these sharks are like timid little puppies. It's a must if yu visit Moorea.

Ia orana Kari, I'm really sorry for the missing communication and the bad day you spent. In 2015 I had a lot of trouble with many people who booked and paid online, because of my separation with my ex wife who didn't give me any information about all online reservation and payments for many months this year, and she also...
