Sylvie and Sam prepared a fabulous meal for us when we returned from the outrigger fishing experience. They were gracious and welcoming. Sam gave a great tour of his fabulous family plantation. We met the whole family, cats and dogs, feeling more like cousins than tour visitors. You can't do better than booking this terrific adventure.

What an experience! From the outrigger, fishing, and lunch, everything was amazing! Also, Sam’s home garden is out of this world. Thank you for the great experience and hope to be back soon.

I cannot say enough great things about this tour. Sam and Manu were the highlight of our trip to Moorea. They are true locals and absolutely the best! They picked us up at the hotel in a jeep. They took us out to the lagoon in an outrigger that we helped row, we then got into the lagoon in our snorkel and fins and chased the fish into a net that they had set up. We caught 3 parrot fish! We snorkeled the lagoon, and it was incredible! They then took us back to Sam's house where they had set up a LOVELY outdoor covered lunch for us. They cooked the fish and sides while we enjoyed refreshments. They showed us how they grate coconuts to then squeeze the coconut milk out. DELICIOUS!! We chatted and enjoyed their company. We toured his beautiful farm that they tend to themselves. So many fruit and vegetables and gorgeous flowers. We truly enjoyed ourselves. HIGHLY recommend, do not miss this!!

Whenever you travel it is always great knowing a local so that you can get a true experience of the local culture and this was the perfect way to do it since this was our first time visiting Moorea!! Sam and Manu conveniently picked us up from our hotel and we had the best day. From going out on an outrigger, learning how to set up the fishing net, snorkel in the beautiful lagoon, swim with huge rays...our time on the water was great! That was just the start of it though. Going back to Sam’s house and meeting his lovely wife Sylvie and beautiful family was so fun. They were such gracious hosts, prepared an unforgettable meal (including the fish we caught), taught us how to crack open and grate a coconut and after lunch took us on a tour of their incredible garden! They truly make you feel at home and the laughs we shared throughout the day made it the best experience. We HIGHLY recommend this excursion and will absolutely do it again when we return.

Amazing, Fun, Educational, Personal, Eco-Friendly, REAL. So many positive things to say about Sam and his entire team! We had the chance to go fishing in the lagoon, the current was very strong that day so fishing was not the best, but I loved swimming in the lagoon with the current and the waves! I love experiencing the real environment when its not all calm and perfect. We set the net twice with no fish, but then the 3rd time we caught some! After fishing we went back to Sam's house and had lunch, and he showed us his amazing garden. My favorite part of the whole tour was the conversation and stories we told each other over lunch. We talked about cars, bands, and trips we all had taken. I feel like we came away with amazing new friends! I can not wait to go back!!! Thank you so much!!! - Mike & Kate
