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. « less

This was UNREAL!! So unique and absolutely amazing. We got to meet the inventor of the Aquabike. Our guide, Matt, was fantastic. He explained everything very clearly before we started. He took us on a great tour and we got to see many different types of fish, coral and other sealife (such as star fish and sea cucumber). MUST DO!!

This is an incredibly unique experience. These submarine/jet skis create a super fun dive/ submarine like experience. We were picked up from our hotel, taken by boat to the launch site. The dive team guided us through the whole experience, generously fed the fish to make sure we were constantly surrounded. The underwater portion of the experience lasted 35-40 precious... More

I'm really glad my husband and I did this on our honeymoon. It is very different from any other water activity you can do. There are only 2 places in the world you can do AquaBike since it requires very clear and calm water. The other is Mauritus. The engineer who designed it was present on our day, but he... More

Beautiful unique underwater adventure! Tour guide Matt was phenomenal! 30 minutes under water...did not realize time passed so quickly. Plenty of beautiful fish and coral to see. Bought the video ($80) and have watched it many time over since coming back from Bora Bora. We were somewhat sceptical when they closed aquabike's hood over our head, but Matt made us... More

This was really a totally different adventure, this was one of the highlights of our trip! It was so cool to be riding under the water. It was well worth the money. The captain, tour guide and camera man were all great. The pictures they took came out amazing! Would do it again! Will do it again when we are... More

We loved the aquabike adventure. The best part was sharing an aquabike, so my husband and I could talk to each other while under water instead of using hand signals when diving or doing a helmet walk. The fish were beautiful and swimming up against us. We would highly recommend this activity!

This tour is super! It is operated in a very professional, safe manner. I was a bit hesitant but they make you feel so comfortable. You feel very safe and in good hands. They know what they're doing. This was a really fun and different excursion. The guys make it educational as well as fun!!! Highly recommend!
