Description: Owner description Come and live a unique experience while in Bora Bora...
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.

We booked our aqua bike tour on our cruise ship because it sounded like a lot of fun, and it certainly lived up to our expectations. Well worth the time. They young men who were our guides were very nice and friendly and gave us a great tour of the life under the surface of the ocean. Give it a... More

My wife and I loved the Aquabike!! It was a very unique experience and we saw some beautiful fish! It was fun to drive the Aquabike, and the guides were awesome with pointing things out, taking pictures with our GoPro for us, etc.

The Aquabike experience is only available in 2 places around the world with Bora Bora being one of those 2! I've snorkeled many times and always wondered what it would be like to be down deeper in the ocean but worried about ear pain. There are 3 machines which look like a cross between a submarine and bike called the... More

I contacted them via email (the webpage wasn't quite right) at: aquabikadventure@mail.pf They picked us up in a van at the Le Moana resort at the designated time and took us... More

Aquabike was definitely one of the highlights from our trip to French Polynesia. The service was exceptional from the pick-up at the Hilton, to the ride, to the snacks! Thank you for making our 15 Year Wedding Anniversary so special. If you are going to Bora Bora DO NOT MISS AQUABIKE :):):)

'Incredible' is the only word to describe this experience! Simply the best thing I've ever done! This experience is a definite WOW! We had 2 awesome guides long with the man who engineered the Aquabike. We were taken out to a platform in a boat, briefed on safety, what we'll see, how to drive etc. Luckily for me I did... More

It was pretty cool. Riding underwater was something never experienced before.The marine life down there was a bit disappointing in terms of variety.
