This is a leisurely half-day island tour in an air-conditioned bus. You will visit all of the important natural and cultural sites on Moorea.
Moorea is one of the most spectacular islands in the world, and it has a vibrant cultural history. The island itself is about 2 million years old - a volcano risen up from the depths of the ocean.
Its flora and fauna have developed over this time and created a complex ecosystem unique to this island. People have lived on Moorea for almost 2,000 years, and a rich history of traditional knowledge has been passed down through the generations.
With two major research institutions here now, including UC Berkeley’s Gump Research Station, it is also now likely the most studied island in the world. We have taken all of the available information generated by researchers and local elders and woven it into a tour that will introduce you to how the island of Moorea came to be as it is today, in all of its natural splendor and cultural richness.
We will explore beaches, forests, and take a walk through an ancient village where archaeologists are piecing together the pre-history of the Polynesians.
Along the way we will take time to talk about geology, plants and animals, Polynesian settlement, European explorations, and modern environmental issues.
Our leisurely pace will allow for plenty of photo opportunities and discussions. This tour will leave you with a new appreciation for this wonderful island and its people.
Local fruit juice and water will be provided.
All safety precautions have been considered to ensure a safe and fun excursion, and Tahiti Expedition guides are professionally trained in First Aid, CPR, and life saving techniques.
Tahiti Expeditions follows sustainable tourism practices and a percentage of tour proceeds is donated to local NGOs in support of environmental and cultural conservation.
The excursion will take approximately 3 hours.
