Highlight of our trip to Moorea
Aug 2021
Absolutely loved the boat trip with Luna and Clément! They took us out on the boat early and there was no-one else around! Super intimate and private tour to swim with stingrays, black tip reef sharks, fishes, and green sea turtles. Luna's an impressive underwater photographer as well, and she sent us a ton of photos. (See attached photo!)

They showed us around the lagoon and pointed out some great hidden spots for hiking and lunch for us to explore later, and Luna guided us snorkeling through a coral garden with some incredible sea life. They shared with us some local fruits onboard, and we even fed some fish out of our hands while snorkeling.
Anyone visiting Moorea should book a tour with Luna and Clément with no hesitation- it was worth every cent and more!

Highlight of our trip!
Jul 2021
My husband and I were referred to Mermaid Boat Tours by our friends who visit Moorea often. We were so glad that we listened and booked them.
The private tour that Luna and Clem took us on was seriously the highlight of our trip! They were both very friendly and knowledgable about the island and ocean life. You can tell when talking to them that they are thalassophiles - a person(s) who loves and is magnetically attracted to the ocean and the sea.
They took us to swim with the stingrays and reef sharks, which was amazing to see them up close and personal. When we took a short break, they set up a beautiful fruit platter for us that they grew from their own garden. The fruit was so delicious and we enjoyed hand-feeding the leftovers to the butterfly fish. I think that was my favorite part! To end the tour, Luna guided us through the beautiful coral garden by Coco Beach which was breathtaking.
They took plenty of pictures and short videos for us. No need to bring your phones/cameras, they do it all. We highly recommend booking a tour with them!
Thank you Luna and Clem! We hope to be back soon, with our son!

The most wonderful hosts
Jul 2021 • Family
The best experience ever! We had the most wonderful trip to see the top sights in Moorea from the beautiful lagoon. We were very lucky that day to see spinner Dolphins ( about 40 of them! ). Then we went to a snorkeling spot where we played with stingrays and swam with blacktip sharks. After, at our final stop we snorkeled with hundreds of tropical fish at what is called the “coral garden” near Coco beach. The team of Luna and Clement were amazing. They were warm, friendly, and very knowledgeable of the island’s geography, it’s fauna, and legends. They made us very comfortable the whole way. Before finishing the day they shared wonderful fruits and refreshing juice with us. Luna and Clement were amazing guides and hosts, we could not recommend them more. If you are in Tahiti - Moorea get out there with them, you will not be disappointed!!!

Learned a lot about Moorea!
Oct 2020
Luna and Clem are awesome! The sea life and the information shared is wonderful.
We had a very nice day. However, if you are used to smooth riding comfortable boats think twice on this one. If you are particular with size and quality of boat this may not work for you. We had a rough ride, the boat is rather small and there is no comfortable seating provided. If you hit windy seas than the ride becomes worst and being 58 and banged around was not good kind to my back at all. Just sharing my experience.
If you are younger and footloose and fancy free, these guys are great and you will be fine. Luna takes underwater photos and that was just great!

Ia Ora Na Brenda, First of all, thank you for your compliments. We love what we do and we are happy that you and your son have spend a very nice day with us and you appreciate the pictures, sea life and information shared. Secondly, the day you went out with us we have had some exceptionally strong winds. It is very unusual for us to have rough waters like this in the lagoon, it only happens a few times a year. Normally we would propose to reschedule, but as you were leaving French Polynesia the next day that was unfortunately not an option for you. Also since we had to adapt our departure times to your ferry hours and therefore start the tour much later, we didn’t drive according to our normal schedule, in which we avoid to drive during the hours when the wind is usually at its strongest. Eventhough we might not have a very large tour boat, we do believe our boat is the perfect size for our private intimate excursions. And luckily the majority of our guests agrees as we can read in our other reviews ;). We wish you and Russel the best, Clem and Luna

Best Snorkeling Ever!
I found Mermaid Private Boat Tours by chance after watching Eryn Krouse’s YouTube video on her trip to Moorea. With COVID-19 being a factor their private boat tour seemed to be the perfect option for my husband and I.

Luna and Clem picked us up right from the dock of our resort and were waiting for us before our appointed meeting time. As Clem drove, Luna explained how the islands of French Polynesia were created, which was very informative. Our first stop was to swim and snorkel with black-tipped reef sharks and rays where we had several close encounters with both. As we interacted with the wildlife Luna dove down to get GoPro photos and video of us. She truly is a mermaid. :) Next Clem took us to a beautiful coral garden with more fish than I have ever encountered snorkeling in Hawaii and Mexico. They prepared a lovely fruit plate for us as we sipped on their delicious fruit juice blend. After our snack we got in the water with pieces of fruit and were immediately met by dozens of butterfly fish who devoured it. Luna got some really great shots of this. Then she guided us through the shallow coral to view some really spectacular coral formations and a large variety of fish. All while answering our questions and telling us about the various fish and coral. On our way back to our resort Luna downloaded over 300 photos and video from her GoPro and air-dropped them directly to my husband’s iPhone, all from the back of the boat. It was seamless.

Overall, we had an exceptional afternoon. Luna and Clem are very knowledgeable, genuinely nice people and their rates are extremely reasonable. I can’t give a higher recommendation.

I'm very happy we got to share Moorea's beautiful underwater world with you and you have some nice pictures to remember it. Hopefully we will get to see you again next time you visit Moorea, we wish you all the best! Mauruuru Roa, Clem and Luna

We were on a Windstar cruise and opted for this tour over the one on the cruise website. Extremely glad we did! Tour was amazing, from
beginning to end. Went to several snorkel sites, took pics that they transferred to us (at no extra charge), gave us a bit of history on the island, and provided wondered local fruits and juices. Avoid the crowded groups!! This tour will make you glad that you did

Private boat experience. Amazing hosts. Breathtaking locations. Gear and snacks provided.

Our trip to French Polynesia wouldn’t have been complete without this boat trip. Clem and Luna picked us up at our hotel dock and despite cloudy weather, it was our favorite part of our time on Moorea.

Not only were Clem and Luna super knowledgeable, they were fun, friendly, and full of recommendations for activities, food, surf, you name it.

We saw all the marine life we hoped for and more. To top it off - they GoPro-ed our experience in the water so we could relive the memories we made.

It was truly a perfect adventure, 100% recommend!

Great tour! Liked it so much we did it twice
Aug 2019
This was a tremendous boat tour, run by a very friendly, hard-working, and knowledgeable young couple. Luna led us through the coral gardens, where we saw a beautiful array of sea life, ranging from tiny and brightly-colored damselfish to triggerfish. We also swam with stingrays and blacktip reef sharks and arrived at this spot when there were very few other people present. This made it a much better experience than if we had gone with a large boatload of people. Clem and Luna fixed us a beautiful snack of fresh fruits and fruit juice for us. Clem is extraordinary at spotting turtles, and we saw a number of them from a distance. They also recommended a tremendous little restaurant called Coco Beach out on a motu, and it turned out to be a great choice for lunch the next day. We enjoyed the tour so much that we did it a second time. I hope to return to Moorea one day and would DEFINITELY do this again. Highly recommended!

Awesome 4 hour tour with Luna and Clem!
We did a 4 hour afternoon tour with Luna and Clem in July. They met us on time at the Hilton boat dock. The boat was comfortable and spacious for the 4 of us. The first stop was swimming with the black tip reef sharks and stingrays on the sand bar near the Intercontinental. The second stop was at the coral gardens past the Coco Beach restaurant. Luna took us way beyond where everyone else goes, deep into the reef. She seems to know every animal living in that reef. It was a spectacular snorkel experience. We had some needed fruit snacks and refreshments and then headed back to the hotel. On the way back we encountered a large pod of spinner dolphins that ended up coming right up to our boat. Quite spectacular! Overall it was a very enjoyable afternoon. I would highly recommend Mermaid Boat Tours.

Ia Ora Na, Mauruuru Roa for taking the time to tell us about your experience! We love spending time in the water and getting to know all of the magical sea creatures living in our beautiful reefs. And when the spinner dolphins come to say hi to us, our days couldn't get any better, thank you for coming on our tour and we hope to see you next time! All best from us, Clem and Luna
