Leo our tour guide was...
, Aug 2022
Leo our tour guide was great. He was very knowledgeable. Even though it was cloudy, sunset was colorful. Only downside was getting to and from Taboo in dinghy.
Great Sailing Catamaran Experience
, Jul 2022
This was an amazing sunset Catamaran. Captain Leo told me and my family about the history of Moorea, sailed us around the islands many bays explaining the significance of each one. I really enjoyed the smooth sailing, and the great Captain Leo. Overall it was one of the best Catamaran experiences I have had. Would 100% reccomend to anyone looking to enjoy the sunset. 10/10.

Outstanding honeymoon sunset cruise!!
, Jun 2022
The sunset cruise was fantastic and Leo is a very knowledgeable captain and tour guide! The sunset was beautiful and the Mai Tais were delicious! The boat is very comfortable and it is an intimate experience that is way better than doing a cruise on a larger boat.

Thanks Kevin !! It was nice having on both of our tours and being able to show you Moorea's wonders in an intimate way. Mauruuru Roa for your great feedback Léo and Liza
Two thumbs up!

Sunset aboard Taboo!
, Jun 2022
We had an amazing experience during our sunset cruise aboard Taboo! Kevin was informative, friendly, and personable. We learned some of the history and geology of the island, particularly the lagoons, and bays. “Magic Hour” was unbelievable and we were able to capture some phenomenal shots over the water during sunset. A memorable time and definitely worth the price for the trip across the Northern coast. Highly recommended. Thanks!
Gorgeous and relaxed sunset cruise!
, May 2022
We couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful sunset or a more relaxed cruise! The conditions were perfect and Captain Kevin was a delightful guide.
Perfect sunset cruise!
, Apr 2022
Amazing cruise! Leo is a wonderful captain who made sure everyone had a great time and saw a great sunset! Such a beautiful experience and so much better than taking a large impersonal tour. He’s fluent in French and English, and he also provided lots of interesting facts about the island. Our children had a wonderful time. And we enjoyed the mai tais and the personalized tour!
, Apr 2022
Kevin was a very nice and entertaining captain. We got some history, met nice people and saw a beautiful sunset!

We had a wonderful sunset cruise with Kevin! We chose this for our honeymoon trip to Moorea and would reccomend it to anyone looking for a romantic experience on the water.

My favorite thing we did in Moorea! Kevin, the captain, was incredible. He was so knowledgeable about the island and marine life. I HIGHLY recommend this to everyone!

Relaxing evening with great views
, Feb 2022
This is a great sunset cruise, especially for those near the Hilton on Moorea. They’ll pick you up from the resort and you may even be dropped off at the dock. Great guide that speaks French and English. It doesn’t hurt that he makes better Mai Tais than the resort!

Super organized and beautiful cruise

Liza helped with communication and bookings. She was so helpful, clear, and informative. The boat picked us up right at the dock of our hotel. Leo was super friendly and told us a lot about the island and the bay. I would highly recommend this tour if you’re looking for a relaxing cruise during sunset.

A Beautiful, Romantic Experience
, Jul 2021
While the weather didn’t fully cooperate, my hubby and I were still able to see some beautiful sights during our sunset tour including an incredible rainbow! Leo was a fantastic captain and guide and we very much enjoyed our trip with him. The boat picked us up and dropped us off right from the dock at the Hilton where we were staying. We highly recommend this sunset tour, especially for those couples celebrating a romantic occasion!

"Captain Leo" sailed us to a honeymoon sunset finale!
, Apr 2021
February 9th, 2021 was an evening to remember aboard Taboo. I booked this adventure months in advance of our honeymoon, and could never know how perfect the day would turn out. French Polynesia closed its doors to all tourists on Feb. 10th. due to pandemic travel restrictions. It just so happened that we booked for the 9th and scheduled to leave for home on the 10th. We could not have timed it any better. No better way to end an incredible honeymoon in Paradise than to sail into the sunset with my new bride. Sounds picture perfect except for the fact that the day started out rainy and windy.....not so picture perfect after all. So here is how things changed...................... Tourists were leaving and doors were closing. We were feeling a little disappointed for our last day before returning to home ...and reality. We we determined to enjoy ourselves to the last moment. At the appointed time and location, (Hilton Lagoon Resort) Leo arrived and welcomed us aboard Taboo. We expected others to join us as well, considering it was not booked as private. When we asked, Leo said "You two are it tonight" all others cancelled or went home. Leo was gracious to treat us to a private experience. We sailed away and had the time of our lives. The sun set just as planned (of course) and Leo let us quietly enjoy the moment capturing timeless images and fun selfies. Thanks to Captain Leo our honeymoon ended as we dreamed and we have pictures to prove it!. I'm sure your experience will be equally memorable simply because is paradise after all!

Hi Jeff, Nice to read your review today as the borders with US just reopen. You are still until now the American couple we had onboard. I remember perfectly that Sunset Cruise we had. It was a pleasure sharing with a lovely freshly married couple this beautiful sunset and sailing time. Thanks for the great time and review ! Mauruuru ;-)
Highlight of our trip
, Jan 2021
What an amazing experience! Leo is a fantastic captain and guide. He told us all about the island and the history of the different locations. The sunset was absolutely gorgeous, it is something that you must experience for yourself! 10/10 would recommend for anyone coming to visit and I would definitely do it again when we come back!

Mauruuru Luke for your Great Review ;-) Thanks for recommending our Sunset Cruise !! Captain Léo will be pleased to welcome you again next time you come to visit Moorea.
