I stayed at the Intercontinental Hotel in Moorea where they had the Moorea Dolphin Center. Our room was right next to the large holding area for dolphins. I bet your friend who's out there goes there often.
Loved Moorea, but Bora Bora was out of this world. I've got a Hinano Beer sticker on my rig
My daughter's middle name is Rea (from Moorea), as she was a "souvenir" from our second honeymoon there.
