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.

First off, the staff were absolutely fabulous. Extremely friendly, knowledgeable and gave an excellent tour underwater. There are 3 things I'd like to mention in my review 1) Be sure you can equalize your ears. This is not a reflection on the ride rather some advice if you're considering it. 2) If you're more than mildly susceptible to motion sickness,... More

My wife and I have tried scuba diving and neither of us enjoyed it. We like snorkeling but we stay close to the service. An Aquabike is essentially an underwater scooter that protects two adults under a Plexiglas dome. The instructors put air until the dome at just the right pressure which allows the water to stay approximately at your... More

From the very start meeting with the owner Claudine it was a true pleasure and something that made the stop in Bora Bora something more than shopping for pearls. We were treated royally and made comfortable on the short ride to the departure platform by Claudine's grandson. On arrival at the platform we were briefed and instructed on how and... More

My husband and I thought this was the best spent money and excursion of our 16 day trip to the French Polynesian. It was an awesome experience. We fed fish right out of our hands. Our guides were amazing and showed us the best underwater adventure. I think this is the #1 thing to do in Bora Bora!

we had such a wonderful time on this excursion. My husband and I went on this excursion while on our honeymoon in December 2015. The staff are very knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. The bike or scooter is totally cool to tool around on under water.

This is an underwater experience like no other! It's like a motorbike underwater. My friend drove, and I rode pillion. There is a huge hood that covers your heads and supplies you with air, so you can breath normally. A diver swims down with you, and shows Myou various sea creatures, and even will take photos of you should you... More

Reme and Michel were so friendly and fun! My husband and I had a great time exploring the ocean from our own, private "yellow submarine". For those of you not quite up to scuba,this is for you. A wonderful adventure that we will remember for years to come.

When in Bora Bora get into that magnificent water! Not being an keen lover of being in the water but having a husband who is an old diver this was a great way to share an underwater experience. Soon as the aqua scooter was being lowered into the water you were surrounded by fish. Hand feeding the fish was amazing... More
