The spirit ?
The islands of french Polynesia have multiple facets and all are united by the ‘Mana’. The Mana is this vital energy, this spiritual force that surrounds us.
This “power of nature” that one feels in Moorea shines through man when he is captivated by the beauty of the Polynesian landscapes and culture.
The Mana you can see it, you can touch it, even taste it and above all feel it. We gave this name to our boat because we want it to be the vehicle for an authentic discovery of the “Polynesian Mana”.
Appreciate this unique moment on board, connect to this energy through oceanic encounters, in order to experience a feeling of well-being and inner peace that can be translated by « MANA’HAU ».
Also Come and feel this vital force on the mountain side with “Mana Mountain” by exploring ancestral trees of divine essence such as the mape (Tahitian Chestnut Tree) or the Ora (Polynesian Banyan tree).
During your hike in the Opunohu valley behind the mount Rotui, you can get closer to the polynesian mana by discovering several maraes (archaeological remains reserved for ceremonial, social and religious activities).

The family grows
The family grew, our little Ilaya was born and to celebrate the union of our little family we got married on the island of Noirmoutier before going back to our first love, in Moorea where it all began.
A family project
Back to Moorea, a whole new adventure begins around a family project. EBy bringing together our skills around this marine world we set up the Mana’hau boat company
These are eco-responsible private tours in small groups on the lagoon side all year round …
And Go to meet humpback whales (whale watching) on the ocean side during the season (July-November).
This job allows us to dedicate our professional life to the ocean and thus live off our passion: diving and meeting marine wildlife in its natural habitat.
