Prepare for a customized small-group experience exploring the Bora Bora lagoon and barrier reef renowned for its outstanding marine life. After pickup from selected hotels or the Vaitape pier, board your boat for the first of several stops made during your 26-mile (42-kilometer) cruise around the island.
Arriving at shallow waters frequented by blacktip reef sharks and stingrays, your guide demonstrates how to interact with these curious creatures. Watch the action from the boat or wade into the water for a close encounter with these extraordinary fish.
Next up in Bora Bora’s tropical paradise is a vibrant coral garden teeming with colorful fish. Snap on your mask and snorkel for a look, and receive helpful tips from your guide who ensures your comfort in the water.
When it’s time for lunch, speed away to a motu with the 2,385-feet (727-meter) Mt Otemanu as your backdrop. While your guide prepares a Polynesian-style barbecue on the white-sand beach, enjoy free time to swim or snorkel in the tranquil turquoise waters. Then settle in at a shaded table for a savory picnic that may include grilled fish, chicken and beef accompanied by salads and other dishes. Your guide explains how to cook these local favorites and shares other cultural and historical facts.
Finish your memorable 6-hour tour with drop-off at your hotel or the pier.
