Coral gardens were gorgeous, a big tourist attraction. Coral is not colourful but lots of fish, all different types and they come right up to you. Very cool experience, a must do I think.

A must do but if you have been to the barrier reef of Australia you are entitled to think it is not in the same league. When encompassed in a collective tour of Ray ,shark and coral garden tour it brings all the aspects together of why bora bora is a must see destination

Snorkeling with Oliver Martin, resident marine biologist, is about the best underwater experience you can get--for any age. Not only will you learn about coral grafting, feeding his fishy friends is memorable. We snorkeled the lagoon at least twice a day, but I advice to tour with Oliver first. The pufferfishes act like pets!

But if these are the specific ones our tour operator, Pure Snorkeling, took us too they were the best we've even seen with pink, white & purple coral too. It was one of the best snorkel trips I've ever taken.

This was really safe snorkelling. Lots of fish. Unfortunately with the hot Tahitian water most of the coral is bleached so it's not as colourful as the Great Barrier Reef. The one eel was pretty impressive..happily do it again

We snorkeled the coral gardens and we were simply amazed. Never have we seen such beautiful living coral. Getting to snorkel here was one of the highlights of our trip. We plan to return to Bora Bora to do this excursion again. It was that wonderful.

Unfortunately in many parts of the world the coral is either dying or dead. It is very hard to find really good snorkeling especially in the Caribbean. This was a true joy. The fish were abundant and the coral was alive and full of color
