        Fantastic tour.
        Sylvian and Jeremy were fantastic tour guides and were super friendly. I would definitely recommend them. The snorkelling was amazing with so much to see.

        Exceeded expectations!
        This is one of the best excursions you can take. I highly recommend it. I went with my husband and two kids (age 8 and 10). We all had a blast. Sylvain picked us up at our hotel, provided all the gear, and ensured that everyone had a great time. We got to see a ray, a shark, wrecks, and so many fish in the coral garden. The scooters allow you to see so much and make it accessible to people of all ages. Absolutely exceptional! I would come back and do this again.

        Great for adults and kids. Best snorkeling experience.
        Our family of 4 had an amazing time snorkeling with Sylvain around the ships/plane wrecks and the coral reefs. Though not our first snorkeling experience, it was a first with sea scooters. We were the only group in the water that morning with sea scooters. And it was clear that we cover more area than the other groups. The sea scooter also really helped my 9 y.o., who wasn't a strong swimmer, to navigate in the water. Sylvain also brought her a full face snorkel mask to accommodate her dental braces and expander. Sylvain guided us around the reefs. The coral reefs were full of diverse marine life. The highlight was following 2 sting rays for a good distance. It was also fun to pose for photos with the ship and plane wrecks underwater. Sylvain is an excellent photographer. He took many amazing photos and videos of us in the water. We stayed at a resort with pier nearby, so Sylvain dropped us off at the door from the boat after the tour. All the adults and the kids had a blast. 5-stars all around. Highly recommended. Would definitely do this again (hopefully during humpback whales season).

        First time from UK to Tahiti, Great Trip, Value for Money. Tour crew were amazing! Thoroughly recommend!
        Fantastic day out with Sylvain and Jeremy today! Very attentive tour guides and their knowledge of the area, ocean and wildlife is inspiring. Drinks and Snacks included, also a wetsuit which we were be dry grateful for, especially for sunburn! The sea scooters were great fun, this was our first time using something like that and we thoroughly enjoyed. Visibility in the ocean today wasn’t the best and the wind had picked up so there was a deep ocean swell, but both Sylvain and Jeremy checked the ocean first for safety and what wildlife were nearby. The area was deemed safe as there was no current but viability was still relatively poor so the option was on us a guests if we’d like to continue. Of course, we continued. This was my partner and I’s first trip to Tahiti from the UK and we had a fantastic morning on the ocean with ATEA. Would definitely recommend, value for money!

        Brilliant!
        Can't say enough good things about Sylvain and Jeremy. Their love of the ocean and the creatures in it was very evident. My wife was originally non too keen on the idea, and admitted to being terrified as she slipped into the water. Jeremy was so kind and patient with her, building her confidence up bit by bit to the point where she was one of the last out and asks can we do it again. We had a great mix of people and S & J are great hosts.

        Awesome marine safari in Tahiti
        Sylvain was an awesome guide. We could tell he adored marine life and he took us to see everything we wanted to see - turtles, white tips, eagle rays and even dolphins! We saw them fr a respectable distance so they were all in their natural element and did not feel threatened at all! Totally recommend 100 %

        So much sealife!!!
        Amazing experience! Jeremy & Sylvian great care of us. My boyfriend cannot swim and has never really snorkeled because of this. Jeremy helped him get comfortable in the water and helped him every step of the way. We saw so much sea life! Even stopped to see the spinner dolphins in passing. 10/10 would recommend! They took all the photos and videos on their go pro. So no need to bring a phone or camera into the water unless you really feel comfortable to! The sea scooter is very easy to use but requires 2 hands. It does float if you need to let it go tho.

        Magic!
        Such an incredible experience. Sylvain and Jeremy were such a great vibe and went out of their way to make it as fun & enjoyable. We saw as many sea creatures as possible including Turtles, Rays & Sharks. Clearest water ever. Was really one of the best tours I've ever been on.

        Highlight of our trip!
        Amazing experience—definitely recommend booking this tour. We saw SO many fish, dolphins, turtles and rays. It was almost too much to take in at a few points. The guides were fun and patient and very welcoming. We had a great time!

        A fun experience
        Very professional and action packed, we saw turtles, rays and many fish. The travelling devices are a lot of fun. The crew were friendly and helpful . Good value for money. Highlight was a pod of dolphins that followed us for five minutes really showing off!

        So many turtles! Wonderful people!
        Snorkelling with 🐢 🐢 🐢 was amazing! These creatures are graceful, strong swimmers! Thanks for the turtle videos and pictures too! Using Sea Scooters to snorkel added a new fun experience into snorkelling too!

        Must do
        The crew (Remy and Loulou) was amazing. Took time to explain the sealife while we were in the water. No rush just enjoy, a realy laidback but great experience to see turtles, stingrays, sharks and if you are lucky even whales in the distance.

        swimming with whales - once-in-a-lifetime experience (at least, until we come back!)
        Having missed our chance to swim with whales in Moorea, we booked this a few days in advance for the last day of our trip, looking for really any company based in Tahiti. WOW, were we lucky! Today’s trip was beyond our wildest expectations. Jeremy & Sylvain were both excellent English speakers and took the time to explain to us everything even as the only 2 non-French speakers on a ~8-10 person tour. They instilled a lot of confidence that they were acting responsibly both for the safety of the people and the animals. And, not only did they make an effort (or several) to look for humpback whales, but they looked for the *right* whales who were playful and whose mothers were not worried about interacting with people. We ended up swimming with 4 whales - kind of followed two that we swam with briefly earlier and ended up swimming with two mothers and two calves who were all playing together (apparently very rare). In short - it was incredible and clearly an exciting experience for the guides, too. While they can’t guarantee the same results every time, these guys clearly know what they are doing and are passionate about it. We can’t wait to receive the Go Pro footage they took! Thanks for an unforgettable experience!!!

      Jeremy was a fantastic guide and very attentive. Speaking English very well which made things very easy. He instructed us on how to use the handheld scooters which were amazingly strong to pull you through the water with minimal kicking with your flippers. We saw lots of green turtles, we were delighted to see a huge pod of the spinner Dolphins playing and jumping in the water with their babies! 🥰 some large eagle rays and a huge variety of fish and other sea creatures. Being on the outer Reef was very special and we were very blessed with great weather, it was not very choppy with great visibility especially since they had quite a bit of rain which had been reducing the visibility in the lagoon but this is clearing up now and we had an excellent time and highly recommend this tour.

      This was such a fun experience! Sylvain and his crew took a lot of attention to ensure we saw the best of the lagoon. We were on a covered zodiac with three other people (+ 3 crew).

      We spent a good amount of time at the wrecks (two boats, one plane, and one hilariously staged desk with a computer), and snorkeling in the coral around that area, as well as a stop to see eagle rays, hunting for whale sharks (would have been amazing but no luck), playing with a pod of spinner dolphins (complete with a baby!), and a final spot where we saw probably 20 sea turtles (green and hawksbill), black tip sharks, a white tip shark, and a second set of eagle rays (16 of them!). And of course, plenty of tropical fish. It was my husband's first time snorkeling but I've been many times, so they also made sure everyone had a custom-feeling experience based on their comfort level.

      They provide wet suits, mask, snorkel, and fins. There was water and a tasty snack, but I'd recommend bringing your own of that. And a lot of sunscreen!

      Can't wait to return and book again!

      Stunning trip with Sylvain and Jeremy. Such knowledge and enthusiastic hosts. I’ve done a lot of snorkelling and this experience was up there with the best in the world. The coral garden is sensational and the sea scooters do all the hard work in the current for you. Not to be missed.

      We absolutely adored this tour!! Sylvain is very patient and kind and we had a fun time snorkling with the scooters (we have done quiet a lot of different snorkling activities around the world but this one was our best by far!) . He has huge respect for the animals and nature in general and we didn't feel like disturbing them at any moment. The fact that he takes the time to take, edit and send you the photos after the tour is a huge bonus. Would recommend this tour to anyone who wants to get the most out of their stay in Tahiti. Mauruuru! ☀️

      Had an absolutely great time on a practically private tour. Myself + another party of 1 was able to arrange a tour on Sunday just 2 days prior. Went snorkeling around the shipwreck/plane wreck and also in the reef with fish, turtles, eagle rays, manta rays (4h combo tour). Had a great time and the sea scooters were a lifesaver from having to work too hard swimming.

      Guide was extremely friendly and tailored the trip to your request. If you want to spend more time somewhere, less time elsewhere, tons of flexibility. Price very reasonable, easy to schedule trip using WhatsApp with short notice.

      Jeremy and Sylvan were really great hosts. From the moment we were picked up from our hotel to the moment we were dropped back off, they were nothing but professional and both very kind individuals with an awesome story to tell. It was my first time snorkeling and it was a particularly choppy day, so Jeremy stayed back with me to help me get acclimated to the process. Admittedly, due to the chop, and my own inability to relay and calm my breathing, I was unable to experience the entirety of the tour, but my girl did and got some amazing pics and videos. I would very much recommend this trip to anyone who is considering it as these guys are top notch.

      This was a highlight for our trip-Sylvain and his team really searched for the best spots to see incredible underwater life in the clear water. We saw lots of colorful fish, corals, fish reproduction activity, a shark (on the ocean floor/not a threat) a pod of dolphins including spinner dolphins (spinning), a large group of eagle rays resting, and a lot of sea turtles. ATAE provided us with shorty wetsuits, snorkel equipment and the scooters. In our excursion there were four "adventurers" and two ATAE team members, so we always felt safe and looked after.

      Absolutely Amazing start to finish! Sylvain made it incredible. Everything thing was easy, and every site he took us to was more amazing than the last. We saw dolphins, sharks, wrecks, sea turtles, coral, and hundreds of fish. I would recommend this 100 times over to anyone who wants to experience the sea. Also, wear sunscreen.
