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.

My wife and I went on the Aquabike Adventure and loved it. Very unique experience and loved the fact that we could talk to each other while underwater. Lasts about 30-35 minutes underwater and you have control of the aquabike. A guide shows you where to go and you stop at a few areas while down there and they explain... More

While staying at the Hilton Bora Bora my wife and I decided to do this trip. We debated between this excursion and the Helmet Dive and chose this because my wife has some neck issues and the weighted helmet wasn't a good choice. This was a great activity. The bike was easy to maneuver and the assisting diver was very... More

My husband and I did the Aquabike in Bora Bora, and had a wonderful time! It was just as advertised-fun, unique, very safe, not scary. We would highly recommend it! It was one of the highlights of our 35th anniversary trip!

Since my wife is a reluctant snorkeller, we decided to try the Aquabike Adventure while in Bora Bora. We made our booking on-line and met the owner/operator at the dock when we got off the cruise ship tender. We travelled by boat to the Aquabike platform located about 10 minutes from the cruiseship. My wife and I were the only... More

This is in between of scrub diving and snorkeling. The machine was very easy to use, the instructor gave clear explanation of how to operate the machines.

My husband and I took a Paul Gauguin cruise of Tahiti and one of the excursions offered was the Aquabike Adventure. We took our shuttle boat over to the launch pad for these bikes and they looked kind of like dirt bikes with a lid. Now, I had no idea how, with an open back the water was going to... More

A must do water excursion! Falls in the middle of snorkeling and scuba diving. Great for people who cannot swim or are afraid to go into water they cannot stand in. You sit on a motorized bike in about 12' of water with a helmet that has air flowing into it. So the water level does not exceed your chest... More
