The Captain & his boat
Rangiroa, paradise island rich of marine fauna and flora, a multitude of species of fish and mammals, that's where I landed.
I am Emmanuel, originally coming from Raivavae in the Australs islands, I was attracted by Rangiroa lagoon, filled with shades of blue colors. I created Rairoa Fishing and Tours to make you discover wild and paradisiac places.
Our philosophy is to make your vacation unforgettable, focusing on your specific demand, in a dream setting. We welcome you all year long.
My boat is named Tuturivahine, it is built in 2009 by Coco Dean.
It is a 20 feet Poti Marara, powered by a 115 HP Suzuki, 4 stroke outboard.
Homologated for tourists transportations, for 6 people.
The boat is equipped with masks/snorkels, raincoats and lifejackets
The boat is insured and inspected every year by a Marine Affairs Inspector
The local crew are offshore licensed and hold the certificate of the lagoon pilot. As well as national patent of aquatic rescue and first aid certificate
Heaven on earth!
That is the best and the most accurate way to describe the blue lagoon.
White and pink sand , Turquoise blue and always warm water will really make you feel in paradise.
The blue lagoon is also famous for being a black tips sharks nursery, but don't worry they are completely armless
The day starts around 8.30 with a free pick up at your accommodation. The car will bring you at Ohotu pier, where you will be welcomed on the boat. The boat ride will last about an hour. Arrived at the Blue Lagoon you can refresh yourself with a drink and then start exploring the site.
A little guided walk will take you through the "Birds Island" an island still virgin where live many endemic species of birds, such as Vini, Kotchotcho, Chevalier, just to cite a few.
The next destination is the pink sands where you will also enjoy the first snorkeling opportunity of the day in the "coral garden". After a little walking and snorkeling it is time for eating.
An example of lunch is Barbecue chicken, freshly caught grilled fish, rice salad and the popular cooked in leaves coconut bread.
After lunch you will have some time for relaxing or doing some more snorkeling in the blue lagoon.
On the way back we will do a stop to see the sharks and, depending on the conditions, you can also swim surrounded by black tips and lemon sharks
Last stop before ending the day is a snorkeling session at the "Aquarium" a protected area with an incredible amount and variety of tropical fishes. The best way to end up a great day!

Frequently asked questions
Will you come pick me up at my hotel?
Yes, the pick up is included. Just write the name of your hotel in the booking form.
Can I do the excursion before catching my flight?
The excursion to the blue lagoon is a "whole day excursion" that means that we leave around 8.30am and come back around 4.30pm. If you are boarding the 6.30pm flight then yes, it is possible. In other cases it is only possible if you do a private excursion, that way we can adapt the program to your need.
I booked an excursion to blue lagoon, is it automatically confirmed?
Unfortunately we cannot confirm the excursion to the blue lagoon unless we have reached the minimum amount of passenger. If you want to be sure to go to the Blue Lagoon I suggest you to book the "Blue Lagoon Guaranteed Excursion" in that case it is confirmed even if not reached the minimum amount of passenger.
What should I bring?
You should bring your sunscreen, reef shoes and if you want a towel. We provide food and drinks and a mask/snorkel although, for best fitting, I suggest you to bring your own.
