Concierge.com's insider take:
American expat Captain Richard Postma is such a character (one clue: taravana means "crazy" in Tahitian) that his stories are about as entertaining as the views from his 50-foot catamaran. But while he's regaling you about his experiences hosting celebs (Tommy Lee, Pierce Brosnan, John Travolta) on the high seas, make sure you take time to fully appreciate Bora's motu-dotted lagoon. Postma does a two-hour sunset cruise that drops you off at local watering hole Bloody Mary's; a cruise of the leeward islands; or some big-game fishing for marlin, mahimahi, and swordfish.
