What To Expect

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.

Traveler Tips

A few small tips: Snorkel masks and separated tubes are provided (not flippers) so if you have the option to bring your own snorkel gear from your hotel, I would recommend that.
We had masks that were in bad shape to select from but no snorkel or fins were available.

These guys are amazing! They’re funny, encouraging, accommodating and so much more!! Our time spent with them swimming and snorkeling with black tip sharks, eagle rays, beautiful tropical fishes among the incredible corals reefs were spectacular! And then they took us to have a delicious meal, another little island view and some coconut cutting and shelling demos!! It was so much fun!! Thank you for the truly memorable experiences. We will never forget!!
Great outing for swimming with shark and stingrays
Lisa_E, Oct 2022
We had a great day and would highly recommend. They picked us up on time in a Jeep and took us to the meeting spot where the boat was. We had three water stops where we swam with black tip shark, stingrays, saw dolphins and snorkeled the coral gardens. We then when to a private beach for a great traditional meal and learned about coconuts, how to open, shred and milk them. Our crew Moana and Namu we awesome!

Fantastic excision!
Krystal_C, Sep 2022
From the very beginning until the end, this 6 hour excursion was amazing! Saw sharks, sting rays, fish, and a giant manta ray (they stopped extra so we could see the manga ray)! Our captain and guide, Mano and Teeny were the best! Highly recommend! We go on a lot of excursions and the guides always make it or break it. This tour was one of our favorites!

Aquatic adventure around Bora Bora.
Anonymous, Sep 2022
Great day on and in the water. Saw plenty of rays, black tip reef sharks, and a plethora of fish on living coral.
A must to do don't miss it!
Jim_S, Sep 2022
The hosts were funny and entertaining, thanks Manu. What a beautiful perfect way to see the islands. Swimming with such beautiful fish and getting up close with rays and sharks is the opportunity of a lifetime.
Amazing experience
Anna_B, Sep 2022
We had a full day (6 hr) snorkeling tour with lunch in September 2022. It was only us and 2 other couples. Manu (sorry, if I spell his name incorrectly) was an excellent guide! At the first place, we swam with a lot of sharks and stingrays. Then we drove to another location where he was able to find manta rays. Third stop was at corral garden with a lot of tropical fish and eel. Next stop was at the breathtaking lagoon with supersoft white sand on the bottom and great view of the mountain. Manu and his cousin helped us to do a lot of nice pictures. The last stop was at his uncle's property, where they fed us with delicious local home-made food, we walked to the other side of the island and learned how to open a coconut. Enjoyed every minute of this experience! They provided towels, water, and snorkeling sets. Not sure about the quality of the snorkeling sets. I would recommend taking your own or from the hotel. Also, extra towel from the hotel is a good idea, because it can be splashy and chill during the ride.
Great lagoon tour
Chau_N, Sep 2022
Manu & Tiki are great. They are considerate to the needs of all guests. Will tour with them again in the future
Definitely a highlight in Bora Bora!
Lisa_K, Aug 2022
From the moment we left the dock this tour was fabulous. Our guides Manu and Teeny had great banter and kept the tour light, fun, and playful. There were 4 stops not including searching for mantas (didn’t find any). First stop was snorkeling with sharks and rays- amazing- then the gorgeous coral garden- then to a beautiful white sand sand bar and finally to a private motu where a traditional Polynesian lunch was served filled by a pareo painting and coconut processing demonstration. What a full and beautiful day!

Manu and family are fantastic!
Meredith_V, Aug 2022
We had an amazing day with Manu and his crew swimming with lots of black tip sharks and sting rays in a shallow lagoon area. We then snorkeled in the coral garden and saw the largest morey eel imaginable?! The guys knew where he lived and coaxed him out for us to see it. They also found a family of eagle rays in ~30 ft of water and stopped so we could hop out and see. Then we spent a restful afternoon on his family motu with a delicious lunch, Pareo painting and a funny and entertaining coconut expose. Would highly recommend for a day trip!
Highly recommend. Money for value
Yanbin_Z, Jul 2022
Manu ( the tour guide. Hopefully the spelling is right) is very nice guy, he is friendly, warm-heart, helpful,. the third stop is lunch at motu. This is much more than what I expected. The host show our tour members a lot of local culture , such as the knowledge about coconut, the local plants.

A must-do experience, don't skip it
Rosen_S, Jul 2022
Amazing experience. Period. We saw manta ray, sting rays, eagle rays, beautiful fish in the Coral Garden... everything we paid and hoped for.
Best Snorkel Experience in Bora Bora!
Janna_J, Jul 2022
I can’t say enough about how wonderful this tour was! Manu, our guide, was so kind and funny and made everything a good time! We saw dolphins, a manta ray, got to swim with the sharks, and pet stingrays. Our guides made sure to show us where the animals were and told us where to swim to or to follow them to get the best view of the animals. After all the snorkeling we had an amazing lunch prepared by our guide’s family. I loved that it was a family run business. One of my favorite parts was learning how to eat a coconut from start to finish after taking off the shell and cracking it open. The coconut juice and meat was amazing. The tour size was just right. There was 10 people and there was plenty of room on the boat. I saw many other tours going on where the people were packed like sardines onto the boats so I am glad ours wasn’t that big. I recommend this tour to anyone looking for a great snorkeling experience with warm, friendly guides!

Awesome experience!
Becky_L, Jul 2022
The tour guides were awesome young operators that did an awesome job showing us some of the most precious wildlife in Bora Bora. They also seemed to make a few impromptu stops to show us eagle rays and dolphins as well. Super awesome experience and well worth the money. We wish we would have brought money to tip because they deserved it!
