We went twice during our stay at the St Regis Bora Bora. Very good snorkelling but the fish, which are superb rely on being fed as they are too many to have enough natural food

Absolutely LOVED every minute of Bora Bora and I’m happy that I was blessed to have visited this gorgeous place. Definitely make sure to take several excursions to fully experience the beauty of the lagoon.

My husband enjoyed snorkeling in the lagoon as many gorgeous fish swam around him. The fish feeding is also very informative, and he enjoyed it so much. I took many beautiful pictures around the lagoon with the lush greenery and mountain as a back drop.

Be sure you snorkel around until you see the Napoleon fish. You cant miss him, he's massive. He's also docile and beautiful. Best entry spot: The spa.

If I had realized before purchasing this excursion that the fish are trapped inside this lagoon, I would not have gone.
