Owner description: Owner description Come and live a unique experience while in Bora Bora, French Polynesia! Embark in a guided exploration of one of the Bora Bora lagoon reef onboard your own 2-seat open submersible/scooter. The scooters have an electrical propulsion and are autonomous thus not limiting you to a small diving area. A typical dive will cover approximately 1.5 Kilometer underwater at a depth of 3-4 meters (12-15 feet) and will last 30-40 minutes. Our guide will stop along the way to allow you to observe the marine life up close. During the briefing, our guide will teach you how to pilot and debrief you after the dive about the marine life you have. There is no need to be a swimmer or diver to enjoy the experience, anyone over 16 years of age can be a pilot! Your head will stay dry in its glass bubble, you will breath as you would on the surface. You will be able to talk and share your feelings during the dive while sharing unforgivable moments. The whole excursion will encompass: 1- FREE Pick up in Vaitape or at one of the Hotels base in our comfortable van. 2- Departure from the pier in Vaitape for a 15-20 minute boat ride to our marine base in the Bora Bora lagoon. 3- Briefing and dive, fresh fruits and refreshments afterward 4- You will then embark on a sightseeing boat ride with a stop to swim and snorkel before returning to Vaitape where you will then be picked up. An optional video of your underwater tour is also available for sale after the dive. You are also encouraged to take your own underwater camera if you have one. We have been operating the "scooters" for over 8 years with a perfect safety record. The "scooters" are engineered with a primary air source and backup, it is not possible to neither tilt during the dive nor run out of air.

This is definitely an experience. Our guide was great and my hair wasn't even wet. It's like an underwater submarine for those of you who don't like snorkeling or scuba diving this might be the option for you. It is a family owned business and the people were very nice would do it again.

This was fun and the guides were great but I felt like it was too short for the money we paid. Good for people that aren't super adventurous snorkelers

The staff are polite and professional. The excursion is the best in BORA BORA. Not available on a cruise ship and should be booked directly online. We booked 6 months in advance and nearly cancelled due to an illness. It was the best fun we had in BORA BORA and met a nice couple on board. It is limited to... More

A terrific experience, particularly for non-swimmers! The staff is most professional. Very safety-conscious, patient and kind putting fears to rest from the beginning of the experience. It was so much fun we did not want to come to the surface! Slight ear pressure discomfort on the descent and return but very manageable with instructions provided. Great opportunity to see coral...

If you get a chance to try this - you should definitely do it. The ability to be underwater and driving a scooter around without needing to have tanks on your back and be SCUBA certified is just awesome. The water is so clear you can see all the fish and coral perfectly and the guides explain just what to... More

I have thoroughly enjoyed this adventure, as I cannot swim this was a great opportunity to get under water and see all fish swimming around... It's very quickly though and the instructor stops so much you hardly drive the bike, what is quite annoying is that they film you all the time and then trying selling you the video for... More

I never dive before so this was an option to try something to see underwater beauty world. I have to say Bora Bora has Coral reefs with an amazing spectrum of colorfull fishes and sea animals. Everybody should see this beauty at least by aquabike. It' s easy to use, instructors of diving explain you everything what and how to... More
