Moorea, French Polynesia-port

Moorea, often likened to James Michener's mythical island of Bali Hai, is only 11 miles from Tahiti. Many visitors say it is worth the visit just to see Moorea's spectacular bays. The volcanic peaks, reflected in the waters of Cook's Bay and Opunohu Bay, rise like a shark's jaw from the island's base. Sharks sighting on nearly every dive makes this island a popular diving destination. At times a tuna will come by or dolphins will be heard clicking just out of sight.

Duration: 3 1/2 hours

Tour Code: MOO-002

Experience the exquisite beauty and flavors of Moorea during a picturesque, off-road excursion through this idyllic island.

Depart the pier via four-wheel-drive vehicle for the scenic drive through Moorea's deep valleys and mountains. Your adventure begins with a drive to Paopao Valley. After passing by some pineapple plantations, you will cross the Paopao Opunohu Trail en route to Opunohu. A stop will then be made at one of the numerous sacred ancient sites, or marae, where you will learn about Polynesian culture.

Next, you will continue to the Belvédère Lookout for incredible panoramic views overlooking Cook's and Opunohu bays. From here, you will drive through the interior trails of the Agricultural School of Moorea to see the local flora. Moorea, known as the Green Garden of Polynesia, is renowned for its school, which receives children from all the outer islands. A stop will be made here to use the restrooms and sample some homemade jam. Ice cream and local fruit juices will also be available for purchase.

Following your visit, you will commence the steep ascent up Magic Mountain. Here, a little path lined by grapefruit, lemon and orange trees opens up to a panoramic vista stretching across Opunohu Bay, the lagoon and the sea. Your tour will conclude with a stop at the Fruit Juice Factory of Moorea to sample their liquors.

Please note: The Agricultural School of Moorea and Fruit Juice Factory will be closed on Saturday afternoon and Sundays; on those days, the tour will be reduced in duration. Guests must be at least 21 years of age to participate in tastings of alcoholic beverages.
