Confirming the tour was a bit of a drama but it was taken care of very well by the hotel staff where we stayed. We had our tour booked for Sunday but were not able to confirm on the Saturday as the tour operator was closed. For future reference I would suggest to confirm the tour on the weekday before the tour.
The morning pick up was delayed, however, time does seem to be flexible in these relaxed parts of the world so a pick up time of 8am could mean anywhere between 8am - 9am.
Once on the tour we were surrounded by friendly tour guides and fellow tourists alike. The snorkeling sites in the lagoon were fantastic with close encounters with sharks and rays and a more relaxed swim in the coral garden.
The snorkeling and tour at the Lagoonarium was magic! It was fantastic to be able to swim with the black-tipped reef sharks and lemon sharks in such close confines. If the view under the water wasn't enough the scenic views from the motu were breathtaking.
Lunch was a delicious meal of rice, grilled chicken, grilled mahi-mahi and raw fish salad. I ate a lot of raw fish in Bora Bora and did not get sick. In fact, I've had more problems eating dodgy food in Australia.
There's a nice touch of Polynesian culture throughout the tour with the local guide playing Polynesian songs, demonstrating the Pareo and some Tahitian dancing.
I would strongly recommend getting a waterproof camera as there are many once-in-a-lifetime photo opportunities. Also bringing your own snorkel, mask and fins is a good idea.
All in all, we had a fantastic time, met some really nice people and left with memories that will be remembered for the rest of our lives.
