Coral Gardens

Bora Bora, French Polynesia

The Basics

Luxury resorts own the majority of Bora Bora’s beaches, which limits independent access to the Coral Gardens (depending on where you’re staying). To see the best of the reef, take a boat tour, most of which include round-trip transport from your hotel along with shark and stingray feedings, snorkeling, or scuba diving. Some excursions offer lunch on the beach.

Best experience/tour ever
Best experience ever. Seeing the sharks and rays would typically be the coolest thing ever and most people's favorite part of the trip but nope. These guys Miguel (And I forget the other) are LEGENDS. Super funny but also were very aware that my wife was not a great swimmer and made the extra effort to ensure she had a great time. The food and coconut demonstration were awesome!! Highly, highly recommend this tour to anyone in bora bora
