We had a great time and the price was perfect. We looked at a lot of tour options and we are so glad we picked this one. We had a lot of time to snorkel with the sharks and the rays and of course all the other tropical fish!.
Swimming with reef sharks and mooray eels was the most amazing experience of my life. If you go to Bora Bora you must do it.
This excursion was awesome! I would recommend to everyone. It's pretty much snorkling the whole day to see sharks, fish and coral. They were really friendly and entertaining. The pinic food was good too!
We had such a great time! The tour guides were fun and very friendly, and spoke good English. They played music for the entire tour and the food was good! Also we saved a lot of money by booking on Viator, some other people booked through their resort hotel and they charge more. Itwould've been fine if we only did the half day, but overall it was amazing!
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.
This was a great excursion and I would highly recommend it. The guides were so much fun. The provided lunch was also delicious. We had plenty of fresh fruit - grapefruit was the best I've had! - French Polynesian dishes of BBQ chicken & fresh tuna, poisson cru, and a taro banana pudding - loved it!
Great way to spend time on Bora Bora. The shark feeding was a blast. Lots of sea creatures (rays, turtles) to see. All in all a perfect day out.
This was really a great trip. A bit crowded at first in the initial transportation, but overall it was really well worth it!
This was one of the best days of my life! The tour was well organized, but there was still plenty of time to do what we wanted. The tour host was super! I can't wait to book again!
Good trip. Shark and ray feeding great. Good lunch and time to chill at the lagoonarium. Can see why some people think its too long doing nothing after lunch though. Tip: if you can get snorkeling gear from your hotel, take them as the gear supplied is only a very old snorkel and mask and no flippers.
Amazing views and access to some of the best snorkeling spots we found in French Polynesia. Would recommend doing the half day over the full day. With the exception of lunch, you get all the experience for a portion of the price!
The trip was alot of fun, just wish more time could have been spent at the coral garden and less on the island after the lunch.
We enjoyed this excursion very much as there were lots of sharks and stingrays during the shark feeding session in the wild and there were also lots of fish during the snorkeling session. Activities performed inside the lagoonarium also interesting and you have lots of opportunities to take pictures with stingrays. Make sure you bring your underwater camera as the water was very clear and there were endless kinds of fishes. However, short-coming for this excursion is that their snorkeling equipment was completely outdated and they had no fins. For poor swimmers like myself, I had to struggle swimming against the current and back to the boat after finishing the activities in the water. Also for the full day tour, you will be left on your own after lunch from 1.00-3.00 p.m. on the island of the lagoonarium before the tour took us back to the main island. We were told we could walk around the island on our own which took around 30 minutes or we could follow other half-day lagoonarium tour members to see them feeding the stingrays and sharks again. I had compared the costs for other half-day tours but if you combined the half day shark and ray snorkeling safari or shark watching and lagoonarium and the half-day circle island tour, there was basically no saving except you won't be stranded on the island in the afternoon if you are short of time in Bora Bora.
The boat ride was a lot of fun. Guide was good. The lunch was delicious. Warning: bring your own snorkeling equipment. Their equipment was so poor that we were unable to snorkel at all. No fins at all and a mask which leaked so badly it was useless.
The locations offered for snorkeling were excellent and the staff (Roberto and Sam) were very helpful and fun to be with. The barbeque lunch was very good. My rating reflects the fact that there were so many people on the excursion that it was really unpleasant. Too many people who didn't know anything about snorkeling made the excusion less fun then it should have been.
