Some people say the only way to truly enjoy something is to do it slowly; take your time; go step by step. Obviously, they've never been on a jet ski.
On a jet ski, you want to go fast. At least while you get from point A to point B. It's OK to take your time when you get there; but it's a blast to get there as quickly as possible.
So, as you circle the beautiful island of Raiatea, you can speed on a jet ski across the lagoon's crystal clear waters to an idyllic motu named Iriru, and pause for refreshments and to enjoy the view while you're there.
Then you can zoom across Faaroa Bay to the mouth of Faaroa River, and around the other side of the island to another motu (this one named Horea). And there you can take your time while you snorkel over the colorful reefs (equipment included).
There's actually no better way to make the most out of a vacation tour than to get where you're going as quickly as possible, so you have more time to enjoy being there. And if the way to get there is on jet skis, even better. The jet skis alone make for a really fun day. Which means everything else is the icing on the cake.
Natural beauty all around
There are 118 islands in French Polynesia; only Raiatea has a river that can be navigated. The Faaroa River cuts through the island like a mini Amazon, parting the lush vegetation of hibiscus, bamboo, mango, and chestnut trees. It's a great place from which to see the mountains. And if the wind is right, you'll catch a whiff of vanilla and maybe tiare.
