Begin your Bora Bora adventure by circling the island aboard a boat. Sea spray refreshes you as you glide over the turquoise lagoon, enjoying amazing vistas. Reach a resting destination and prepare to swim with rays. Enter waist-deep water to get up close and personal with the magnificent fish. Feel their smooth, flat bodies and flapping wings, delighting in their friendly behavior. Feed them fish and they'll quickly become your buddies! If you feel scared, don't worry, rays don't have teeth.
Your captain provides snorkels and masks, allowing you to explore an underwater perspective, just like a fish! After your encounter with rays, it's time for sharks, their equally friendly cousins. They will impress you with their poise and beauty as they glide near you. With your snorkel and mask in hand, plunge into crystal blue waters to explore a gorgeous coral garden, an underwater oasis of vibrant colors. Corals of various hues are home to teeming fish, just as radiant as their ecosystem.
Prefer to stay on the boat? You can enjoy the colorful ocean life aboard your ship, visible through the sparkling clear lagoon. On a beautiful motu islet, a local family serves a grilled meal. With your feet in the lagoon, enjoy a savory plate of Tahitian food prepared in an Earth oven ("Ahi ma'a"). You will be returned to port after the tour's completion.
Book this comprehensive full-day Bora Bora shore excursion for an incredible day exploring a beautiful island.

The tour operators are very friendly and accommodating. The lagoon consisted of several visits to different places, which involved snorkeling if you choose. We swam with Black Tip sharks, Manta rays, string rays, lemon sharks, moray eels, and a zillion brightly colored fish. Swimming through the coral gardens was amazing. Afterwards they had prepared us a lunch on a private beach, it was very nice.
