I was picked up at my hotel by Bob. He drove to where the boat docked and he was also the driver for the boat. Once we got to the Lagoonarium he was also our guide! He was very informative about the animals. I wasn't sure what to expect for this excursion. I totally did not expect to swim with... More

Everything. Swimming with tropical fish, Sharks, Rays, eels, the boys were entertaining during the boat trips to the different locations providing some history of the island. If you only do 1 tour on Bora Bora make sure this is it. You will regret it if you do not go. It is breathtaking

Beautiful trip around the lagoon, including a couple of nice snorkeling spots and the obligatory "shark/ray" feeding experience. The lagoonarium itself was interesting in terms of the bigger fish and sharks, but not as impressive as the sites accessed on a serious snorkeling tour.

This trip was awesome. Highly suggest booking the full day tour. Your day would include 3 stops in the open lagoon, followed by a boat ride around the entire island, and arrival at a private island that is surrounded by a lagoonarium. Each stop offers sight seeing, fish viewing (fish, shark, rays), and snorkeling. The lagoonarium offers up close interaction... More

We stayed on Bora Bora for 15 days. Trying a variety of excursions. This one is by far the best. The family is wonderful, hilarious and make you feel so comfortable. They really excell in what they do. They make you feel safe, yet you get to experience so many amazing things. Choose them before anyone else!

Our guide, Steve and Max are super funny guys, keep us entertain the whole days. Take the whole day tour, it is a good deal including boat trip around the island, swimming with shark and stingray, snorkeling at coral garden, and visit lagoonarium on a private island. Make sure to bring your own fin since they don't provide, and if... More

we did this tour on the 11th of March, we chose to do the full day tour which I wouldn't bother with as the afternoon was mostly laying around after lunch not much else, the shark and ray first part of the tour is good as the animals are free to come and go, we then went to the coral... More

Bob and Big Papa were our tour guides. They are funny and entertaining. When we visited the black tip sharks and sting rays, the sting rays came right up to Bob like he was a long lost cousin. He greeted them with kisses and a bucket of sardines didn't hurt! Then, we visited 2 more coral gardens. At one of... More

(First of all, let me say that this experience is not for everyone. If you are opposed to the idea of aquariums or zoos, then skip the lagoonarium because this is like one big HUGE outdoor aquarium or zoo.) However, we loved this experience - it was crazy fun, and super entertaining! This is a family owned business - from... More
