Should I book excursions before I leave for the islands or should I wait and do it through my hotel?
Some excursions are cheaper if booked in advance and not through the hotel and some are the same price. I recommend seeing if you can get your hotel's excursion price list and comparing it with prices on websites. Then choose accordingly. I know for sure that the ATV excursion on moorea was cheaper booking it directly with tour operator than through the Hilton.
Usctwin - I looked at your blog and got alot of great ideas from it. I even contacted the Lagoon Service you suggested. I think we are going to try and do a 4x4 excursion as well as a jet ski excursion. Would you suggest any companies on either Bora Bora or Moorea to go through? Also do you think it's better to have a guide for a hike or do it alone?
