Dive with me in the life of my island, Moorea.

I will share with you my culture and my way of life. I’ll come pick you up for a day of discovery on my outrigger. The group size is always intimate, with a maximum of 2 people with me in the outrigger. 2 more adventurers can join us with my friend Mate ona secon outrigger.
I will first teach you how to paddle my outrigger canoe and then out different technics for fishing. If we are lucky, we will try to set a net to get our lunch. Before returning, we will explore the lagoon to see fish and shellfish that you might find in a Polynesian meal.

In my valley, I will show you how to prepare coconut milk and we we’ll cook our meal together ( fish, raw fish, local vegetables). After we’ll visit my organic plantation where you’ll discover local vegetables and enjoy seasonal fruits. . During this day of discoveries, you’ll also have the opportunity to try plaiting palm tree leaves.

Authentic Polynesia is calling, don’t hesitate!

An outrigger canoe and lagoon fishing trip is part of our « Polynesian day ». However, if we consider it is too risky we’ll change the plan, still within Polynesian culture.

The lagoon is a marvelous pool to swim in. But beware! Sometimes the swell increases, currents get stronger and, though it may seem calm, they can drag you out. Always follow the recommendations of local people. If they advise you not to go swimming don’t, it could prove deadly!

Due to the intimate nature of our activity, we have to refuse many bookings. It is of course to preserve our idea of sharing and the quality of the encounters, which would not be possible with groups. The inconvenience if you cancel your reservation, in the 3 days before the activity, is that we do not refund. But your travel insurance, when it comes to a covered cancellation , take care of it. Do not hesitate to let us know if they ask for a certificate.
