What You Can Expect

Full-Day Bora Bora Lagoon Cruise Including Snorkeling with Sharks and Stingrays

Stingray feeding

Set out for the Bora Bora lagoons during a memorable day of snorkeling, starting with hotel or port pickup. Board your powerboat and cruise over turquoise waters fringed by lush coastline, and soak up stunning views en route to your first lagoon.

Hop into the shallow water and slip on the provided snorkel and mask to begin your stingray experience. Your guide shows you how to interact with the tame stingrays, which have adapted well to human feedings in the area. Get a close look or even touch the graceful rays as they swim right up to you!

On the way to your next stop, search the crystal-clear waters for manta rays gliding past. You’ll arrive at a prime snorkeling spot above a colorful coral garden where you can observe the marine life from the boat or marvel at the multitude of fish through your snorkel mask.

Once you’ve worked up an appetite, your guide takes you to a private motu (small island) for a freshly prepared buffet lunch. Sink your teeth into grilled steak, chicken, fish, salads and fruit. 

Afterward, follow your guide on a short hike to the island's summit for panoramic views, and reward yourself with a dip in the sea or a stroll along the shoreline. When you hear the unmistakable sound of a conch shell being blown, you'll be entertained by a coconut husking demonstration and live music before your full-day Bora Bora tour returns to the starting point.

This tour was incredible, the guides not only are very thorough and passionate about their job, but they also take you to the very best snorkeling-swimming spots, which lots of diverse fish-corals, sharks and stingrays. Also they entertain you playing songs on the ukulele, while on the boat and provide an excellent island lunch, with plenty of relaxation-down time without feeling rushed at all. Very laid back and easy going tour, w/ amazing scenery as well. This all really made for a memorable experience.

This tour was SO MUCH FUN! The tour guide was funny and made sure we were all having a good time. I loved feeding the sting rays and swimming around the black tip sharks. While we had lunch, fish and sting rays were swimming under our feet - a real treat. Highly recommended!

Had a great time on this tour. Picked up from our hotel, Le Meridien. With a group of 12 for the day. Our guides Ari and Rainui were very funny, upbeat, and friendly. They played music for us and did the tour in both English and French. We had 4 stops - coral garden sting rays and sharks sharks lunch @ private motu. Spent about 20-40 minutes at each stop. All stops were great fun. Lunch was also good - we were served tuna, chicken, salad, pasta, drinks. The lookout point on the island was top notch and we were able to capture some great photos. A great day and a highlight of our trip!

This tour was definitely one of the highlights of our trip! Our tour guides were professional yet fun and willing to take all the pictures and videos we wanted, and boy were there amazing photo opportunities! We were lucky enough to spot and swim with a manta ray from a safe distance. We were so glad we invested in a nice underwater camera so we could capture the memories from this tour. Highly recommended!

I forgot the guys who did the tour, but our 2 guides were very nice and accommodating! We especially liked the relaxing on the private motu after the picnic lunch and the views were unbeatable!

We took 2 tours during our vacation and this one was our favorite by far. This tour usually consists of 3 snorkeling stops and lunch. I had mentioned to Hiro that I wanted to see manta rays and to my surprise our tour now had a 4th stop. Each stop was about 20 - 30 minutes. We first went to look for manta rays and although we weren't lucky enough to see any, I'm so grateful they accommodated my wish. Our 2nd stop was just outside the reef to swim with sharks. 3rd stop was back in the shallow waters of the lagoon for rays and more sharks. We then went to the motu for a buffet lunch where we sat at tables in the water. Lunch consisted of grilled chicken and fish, cabbage, corn, coconut, bananas, grapefruit, rice, juice, etc. The motu has a clean restroom which is a big deal for me. The other tour we took had the most disgusting restroom I've ever seen worst than the restrooms in my 3rd world travels!. After lunch he hiked up about 70 steps to the top of the motu for an amazing view. Afterwards we went on to our 4th and last stop at the coral gardens.

Thanks to our guides Rai and Chris for making our tour fun and memorable. We will definitely do this tour again on our next visit. My suggestions are to bring your own snorkeling gear, booties or water shoes, drinking water, towel, sunscreen, and waterproof camera. I hope that those that read this review and decide to take this tour have as much fun as we did!
