Moorea is known as "Tahiti's little sister" since it is within sight of Tahiti and is separated only by a 17km strait.

The island is a geographical marvel.  Eight large mountain peaks rise from its translucent lagoon, creating a distinctive and rugged silhouette visible from the western coast of Tahiti.  Splitting the northern shore are two symmetrical bays: Cook's (Paopao) and Opunohu Bay.  The island is roughly shaped like a heart from overhead; and in the theme of love and romance, Moorea is one of the top honeymoon destinations in Tahiti, second only to Bora Bora.

About The Host


Steve has always had an affinity for the ocean. That started with childhood family trips to the beach (his parents often had to forcefully remove him from the ocean kicking and screaming), attempts at surfing in his late teens/early 20s (he was rubbish at catching waves but didn’t care and loved being out in the water and having banter with friends) and fishing trips with his Father (he would much rather swim with fish these days).

It wasn't until Steve took up Triathlon 15 years ago that he discovered the joys of ocean swimming. Since then ocean swimming has gradually morphed into a passion/obsession which has been fueled by several magical marine wildlife encounters. His favorite so far occurred in 2021 when a pod of Orca decided to swim over and check him out (you can see the video from that encounter below).

Steve loves encouraging others to join in on the fun and it brings him great joy when a person completes their first ocean swim, and they are left buzzing. Steve reckons the exercise-induced endorphins, being out in and feeling connected to nature, marine wildlife spotting, meeting new people, and having a laugh do make ocean swimming holidays hard to beat!
