We had an amazing tour! The guides were informative and fun, and snorkeling with the black tip sharks and sting rays was one of our highlights on Bora Bora. We stopped at an island for a filling lunch, time to relax and explore a bit before being taken back to our respective hotels. It was a fun, full day. However, if I were to do this again, I'd skip the second half of the tour and stick with just the snorkeling portion. The people who opted for the half day didn't miss any snorkeling in the afternoon, and for us, that was the best part of the trip.
Wonderful experience. Plenty of tropical fish, the tour guide and the dude piloting the boat were very friendly, knowledgeable, interacted well with the other passengers. They gave us enough time to explore each stop without rushing and without overstaying.
The lunch on the private island was delicious, and plentiful. We were encouraged to go for seconds and thirds.Nice scene with a bunch of benches partially in the water with a bunch of little fish swimming around us looking for scraps.
We enjoyed the little coconut info demonstration, I speak for the entire group here, not just myself and my wife as everyone was laughing and participating.
I recommend this excursion to anyone without hesitation.
Amazing experience- we loved this! The sting rays are so friendly, this part was a highlight of the trip for me. Definitely do this tour- it is a must!
Our boat crew were great- loved the singing and music!
Thank you for a wonderful day! We had a great experience with our tour guides and the tour. All the sights/spots were amazing and the lunch was delicious. We stayed at Le Meridien and they came to pick us up at the dock of our hotel.
Completely worth the price! not only is the tour itself extensive, the guide and driver, Ari and Cristian, were outstanding! Their energy and spirit were outstanding, and they made us feel extremely comfortable and safe. I can't wait to return to the islands again and do this tour one more time!
Excellent tour, highly recommended. Unfortunately the weather wasn't great on the day but the crew still made it a fantastic day. English and French speaking guides. We were taken to 3 different sites and were able to swim with an abundant amount of sharks and stingrays. The guides took the time to bring the rays to each and every passenger so you got the full experience. We had 2 frail elderly passengers in the group and the guides took the time to fully assist this couple over the side of the boat and back in again no mean feat. Lunch was on a lovely private motu with a good selection of food and drinks, even beer was available. The boat is a bit on the old side compared to the other companies running similar tour but this in no way hinders a good time. Only down fall was there was only 4 sets of snorkels and fins for 12 passengers so I would advise you to bring your own but otherwise have no hesitation recommending this tour or the company.
Amazing! A must do on your list NO it and #39;s a HAVE too! The guides were great. The boat was immaculate ...And the food was unbelievable, there and #39;s just something about eating a delicious lunch dangling your feet in South Pacific with Bora Bora in the background that and #39;s forever etched in my mind.

We had amazing time! The tour guide was awesome. Highly recommended.
Best experience ever. Great guide and captain. Incredible swim with lemon and reef sharks, then fed and swam with sting rays. My wife finally snorkeled for the first time ever thanks to captain Chris. The coral reef area had abundant coral and fish of all size and colors. The lunch on a private motu was outstanding, fresh salads and fresh grilled fish caught that day. Best value for a tour we have ever enjoyed. Thank you Bora Bora!!
This was a superb day of exploring the lagoon and beyond. Not reall suitable for young children but great for active adventurous teens. The ocean was a bit rough but the tour guides ensured we stayed safe. The fish, sharks and Ray's were amazing. A great lunch on a private island. We then got to have a snorkel and swim around the island. Great views from the top..worth every cent.
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 actually swam with friendly mantas and black tip sharks! It was amazing!
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!
This was the highlight of our 30 day cruise to French Polynesia. Matt and the other guys were outstanding! We snorkeled, saw stingrays and had lunch on a private island. You will not be disappointed!!!!
