My family had a great experience using Terevau for both going to, and returning from Moorea (from Papeete). The Ferry was on-time, clean and an overall smooth ride with exceptional views! We even got to see whales which was very cool. Highly recommed using Terevau!!

The ferry trip from Moorea to Tahiti is 30 minutes (versus 45 on the other). It is an easy trip. This ferry is quicker and smaller (relative); the other is more stable and larger. This one may have had a better schedule, but I would...More
