Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
It is always best to book the tour one to two days before the date you want to do it. This will facilitates meal planning and the number of cars for the road trip. In addition, we can be complete, and we could offer you alternate days.

The Sunset Beach Motel, one of the most famous resorts in the world for travellers who visit the sacred island, has been offering Edwin's tour for many years to all its residents.
Tahaa Tour Excursion does not accept payment by credit card. It takes cash or checks (if you have an account in French Polynesia's bank). You can pay for the tour directly to Edwin or Yvann on your return to Uturoa.
Note: The pearl farm accepts bank cards (if you decide to buy a souvenir).
Yes. If you wish, you can buy vanilla or pearls during the tour.
Note: the pearl farm accepts payment by credit cards.
The departure is from Raitea's main marina, located in downtown Uturoa near the Shell gas station.
As a general rule, the excursion begins between 8:30 a.m. and 9 a.m. from downtown Uturoa, and the return is around 4 p.m. (at the same place).
No. Generally, hotels and guesthouses in Raiatea offer to take you to downtown Uturoa, the starting point of the excursion. If you have a car, you can easily let it park at the Uturoa's port in front of the grocery shop "Champion."
As a precaution it is always better to have a bottle of water with you.
We chose to make you discover all the facets of Tahaa and visit in one day the lagoon with its coral garden, and to make the tour of the island in 4 x 4. Eating on a motu would not leave us the time to discover all the small villages of Tahaa and the secrets that Edwin and Yvann will share with you.
Yes. Children of all ages are welcome, although we do not encourage you to do this excursion with a baby.
Yes. The coral garden is full of multicoloured fish, and you might even get a chance to spot black-tipped sharks. Without a mask and snorkel, you will be unable to discover this underwater richness. We have some masks and snorkels that we lend, but they are not of high quality and are in a small quantity.
Yes. These shoes are very useful when we walk back to the coral garden on the motu, which is nearby. They are also very useful when you swim in the coral garden. You can also use fins, which are unnecessary since a current carries you throughout the coral garden. If you wish to swim with your fins, Yvann will carry your shoes for you, and you will be able to evolve your hands-free between the coral "potatoes" (we also have some plastic shoes to walk in the water but in small quantities and not in all sizes).
We built a Polynesian pirogue, especially for the excursion. The pirogue pitches less than monohull boats. It slips on the water and splits the waves when the lagoon is agitated. It is therefore perfectly adapted for people with seasickness. The Edwin's pirogue is covered, and you will be protected from the sun and possible showers. So you can take pictures or simply enjoy the scenery.
Here is a small list of things you should bring to the tour: Mask and tuba. Sunscreen (index 30). Mosquito repellent. Footwear for walking in water. A small bottle of Water (as a precaution). Camera (if possible, that can go underwater). Beach towel.
