FI and I are going to Tahiti for our honeymoon. We are doing 4 days in Moorea and 5 days in Bora Bora and staying at the Intercontinental Hotels. I’m looking at activities and trying to get a list of ideas for us to do and places to eat. I know we want to swim with the sharks/stingrays and go parasailing but I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions of must do/see/eat on these islands?

Moorea: Eat at Aloo Pizza, Snack Mahana, Jules and Claudine. There’s swimming with the dolphins at the Intercontinental where you can actually hold onto the dolphins and they “dive and swim” with you. It is a great experience but pricier than other areas around the world (Carribeans/Mexico). Albert seems to be the main family running tours and rentals on Moorea. They have this dude named Siki who does a great island/motu snorkeling and picnic. We rented our own car and explored the island, driving up to Belvedere lookout point. (Don’t take the shorter road by the pinapple farms… it turns into a dirt road which we had a TON of fun offroading with our tiny rental car in but there were moments where I thought we were going to get stuck!)
Bora Bora: Explore the island via special tour, most of the resorts are on their own motus/islands. There was a great snorkeling tour that was done extremely well in Bora Bora… forgot the name of the group doing it. If you’re interested I can try to dig that information up.

Oh you will love it!!
I will second Albert’s tours in Moorea. We went on an ATV tour that took you up to the mountains and it was awesome. We mainly ate t the hotel in Moorea so so advice there.
We stayed at the IC Thalasso and were pleasantly surprised ADT how tasfoodie food was there and it was included in our package which was a bonus. we went to Bloody Mary’s but I actually don’t think it was worth it. I’d go for lunch because its a cool environment. The best meal we had was at Villa Mahana. It was incredible! The place only has seven tables so make reservations early. It’s pricy but worth indulging on the honeymoon. 🙂 We also booked shark tour and jet skis through the hotel. The shark tour was awesome!!!!!
feel free to PM with any questions. 🙂

We hired a scooter on Bora Bora and drove around the whole island ourselves. It was so much fun, and we could do it at our own pace. We also did an amazing snorkling trip, swimming with sharks and stingrays, which was organised through our accommodation (which was the Hilton). We also went to Bloody Marys, like @dressed obsessed said above, its not really worth it, but in a way it is because it is a cool environment.
One thing you MUST do… Pina Coladas! The BEST I have ever had, ours were made with vanilla rum and coconut ice cream… yum! Also bring back as much vanilla as you can, SO cheap over there. We got the majority of it in Papeete at the markets on a stopover day.
No matter what you do you will have an amazing time! Husband is already talking about going back lol
