French Polynesia 3: Moorea

French Polynesia  3: Moorea

Only 11 miles from Tahiti, Moorea has often been likened to James Michener's mythical island of Bali Hai, made famous in the book and musical, South Pacific.You may have lunch on an uninhabited island, a Motu, or dine Tahitian style in a ceremonial village. Also the richness of this island's underwater life makes it a special destination. Here we see Mount Tohiea, folklore says this prominent peak was pierced by the spear of the legendary hero, Pai; also Mount Rotui offers a spectacular view of both Opunohu and Cook's Bay. Next we learn that Spinner dolphins are the world's most acrobatic dolphins and are identified by their unique dorsal fins. Next we explore the Tiki Village, a Tahitian cultural center and re-created village of the past. 05/10DE IJSCA 30 min.
