Moorea Photography Tour
As in many cities, keep your wallet or purse secured and leave the bling behind. Dress for the weather with flat, comfortable shoes for walking and don’t forget your sunscreen and bottled water.
The order of the stops may vary according to weather forecast and light of the day. Sandals are convenient if walking on the beach. The stop at Magic Mountain is weather and time permitting.

Special Medical Restriction
This is the Moorea tour for photography buffs. For people who always keep a camera close, because they always manage to see something worth shooting. You'll have a guide who knows where the best picture places are, and access to a professional photographer to help you make your shots better.
Beginners will benefit from the knowledge they'll gain by having a pro with them. Experienced photographers can compare notes and exchange tips. Either way, your group is small, so sharing time with the pro will be easy. But that's not the best part.
The star of your tour is Moorea. This island has remained mostly unspoiled and untouched because the people here want to preserve its pristine beauty. That's why resorts are few, with little development around Opunohu Bay and none in the interior.
It's also why you can shoot crystal-clear waters, breathtakingly green mountains, and scenes with every color in the rainbow. And why you can turn 360 degrees atop Magic Mountain and find unforgettable views in every direction.
Four hours in a small group with professional advice and an exotic subject. Picture that.
A tale of two captains
Contrary to popular belief, Capt. Cook never dropped anchor in Cook's Bay; he did in Opunohu Bay, in 1777, on a different trip. Twelve years later, HMS Bounty dropped anchor in Opunohu Bay. But this voyage was marked by the most famous mutiny in history, with second officer Fletcher Christian (Clark Gable, 1935; Marlon Brando, 1962; Mel Gibson, 1984) casting off commanding officer William Bligh (Charles Laughton, Trevor Howard, and Anthony Hopkins). Only the 1984 movie was actually shot here, but the bay hasn't changed in 240 years.
