Four of us took the L'Excursion Bleue Day Tour of Raiatea. Bruno was quiet, but knew how to attract the fish! We got great underwater pictures! The food for lunch was OK; we had better Motu meals on both Bora Bora and Huahine.

Avoid this company! We are in Raiatea right now, and Bruno cancelled our tour tomorrow morning leaving us stuck. Not dependable; no integrity.
