Itinerary guideline

Following feedback from our experienced charter operator Moorea Eco Tours we have drafted what we believe to be an itinerary that takes in the very best of Moorea as follows:

Sunday – Meet 6:30pm at Cook's Bay Hotel for a welcome and safety talk, then 7pm Group Dinner at Le Cook's Bar and Restaurant (accessible from the footbridge or the sea via the floating pontoon, Le Cook's offers a 180° view of the bay, the pass and the Pacific Ocean).

Monday to Thursday – 4 half days (mornings when the conditions are glassy and clear) swimming supported by our charter boat.  We will be covering approximately 4-5 km per day across 2 different swims.  Longer distances can be added for those keen to swim more. 

For swims off the charter boat, it is possible to divide the group into 2 subgroups to swim different distances, i.e. the first group wanting to swim longer will jump off the boat earlier and the group wanting to cover a shorter distance will hop off the boat later.  We have a  guide accompanying the swimmers plus the charter boat as support.

Friday – 8am Group Breakfast at Le Cook's Bar and Restaurant.  Check out by 11am.
