What You Can Expect

Bora Bora Lagoon Cruise and 4WD Tour

Bora Bora 4WD Tour

After morning pickup from Vaitape Pier or your Bora Bora hotel, start your full-day combo tour with a 4WD safari in an open-sided truck, which easily scales mountain roads to several viewpoints along the way.

A professional guide takes you around the 20-mile (32-km) circumference of the island and stops at East Matira, Faanui Canon and Amanahune Bay lookouts with postcard-perfect views, including a panorama of the sparkling Bora Bora lagoon. Learn about the military artifacts left behind by US troops after WWII, and discover volcanic rock formations from the island’s ancient caldera.

You’ll also observe the production of coconut oil and tie-dye sarongs by local artisans at a crafts workshop, and sample tropical fruits at a small plantation.
After your morning island tour, enjoy a 1.5-hour break at your choice of restaurants where you can purchase lunch (own expense).

Later, you are transferred to your boat for the afternoon cruise portion of your tour. Settle under the sunshade or on the sundeck as your captain navigates to a calm lagoon where you can snorkel in waist-deep water with tame stingrays or simply observe them from the boat if you prefer.

After this up-close experience with the rays, you’re taken to another spot where black-tip reef sharks glide past your vessel. Follow up at a final snorkeling spot over colorful corals teeming with tropical fish. After your search for ‘Nemo’ is over, end your day trip with the return to your Bora Bora hotel.

When we arrived at the pier from the tender- we boarded a boat which took us to 3 different snorkel locations in beautiful waters.
The crew was entertaining- playing the banjo and singing to the passengers. Not too crowded and then they got into the water with us-
allowing us to touch the stingray and went down in water to point out various fish. Then we were taken to a beach where we were served a delicious lunch by the islanders. We actually sat on the beach with feet in the water to eat our lunch.
The we were taken back to the port where we got into an open 4WD Jeep with another tour guide who tool us on a land tour.
The entire day was great and thoroughly enjoyed by us all.

Very windy day with some rain. However, the two outrigger operators who by the way were both excellent musicians! made the best of it and took us to FOUR excellent snorkel spots. Outside the reef spot with many sharks was personal favorite, but manta ray, sting rays many! and just fish spot all had their charms. This part ended with very nice lunch and Tahitian beer on a private motu small island, with plenty of time to climb to the top amazing views and relax.

Second half of the day was 4WD tour. Santiago, our tour operator and originally from Barcelona, spoke excellent English and French, clearly cared deeply for his adopted home, and was a wealth of information. To enhance the experience, the vehicles passengers included us about as American as you can get, a couple from Israel and a couple from Syria sitting side by side, and a single French woman on her adventure of a lifetime. Absolutely wonderful! Trip is highly recommended.

Incredible tour in a very beautiful place. Very good tour itinerary Many exciting adventures. We had snorkel swims in 4 different places .The tour guides were really helpful and I noticed they offered life jackets and a rope to some not so advanced snorkelers ! Nice touch !. Everything went well. They know where to find the sharks / sting rays etc and beautiful beaches / islands.

This was an amazing day! Best snorkelling I've done in several different locations, great BBQ lunch on a private island followed by 4WD trip into the interior for the best views of the lagoon. A bit crowded as 2 groups were combined into one at the site of the lunch and boat trip back to Bora Bora. Very full satisfying day. Would highly recommend.

A must! The 4WD tour is the best way to see the island. Django, our guide, was awesome. The second half of the day we joined another group for snorkeling. We swam with sting rays and sharks. We even them. Perfect day! The sting rays are adorable. All they want is food!

We took this day trip ...it was the best tour of our 10 days in the South Pacific.We were on the Crystal Symphony and booked most of our tours outside of what the ship offered and this was the highlight.The small boat accommodated about 6 or so couples ...we had a great lunch on a private Motu and continued on with part 2 of the tour in a 4 wheel drive vehicle .We are seniors and were a little concerned about the full day of activities but they made the day very safe and comfortable.We went thru a rainstorm to get to the blue lagoon but it was worth every moment.Feeding the rays and swimming with small sharks is something you never forget and may only dream of attempting.Go for it !!!!!
