We did the full day tour and were picked up from right outside our accommodation in the back of a 4x4, via another hotel to the dock. With the trip back at the end we effectively got a full tour of the island by road. The guides can be what makes a full trip like this and we weren't disappointed,... More

Great group of people running the show. Amazing wildlife in the lagoonarium. Swam with sharks of many sizes, even during their feeding time. Probably the only place you will see turtles in Bora Bora, i don't think many tourists see them in the wild. We did the half day trip which is the best option in my opinion, no need... More

We had a blast! The sharks and rays are awesome!! I would recommend the half day tour. You see and do everything the full day tour does, but you get out of the sun and heat 3 hours sooner. The crew was a riot!! Very entertaining!! We did have our own snorkle gear and I would recommend doing that, not... More

If your answers is yes this is the place to visit. Since we had chartered a catamaran we anchored in front of it and then tooke the dinghi to get there. I did not really know what to expect, and as a diver I was not really expecting too much from captured fish. First it was quite and I was... More

Kids enjoyed this trip. Something different compared to swimming all day at the resort. The company was slightly disorganised though.

I visited this place last April & had a great time ! Very easy snorkeling; but it was o.k. for experienced divers like me. Great views of Bora Bora from this motu & great people out there, but be warned, the bathroom facilities are primitive: no toilet seats, and you have to bring a bucket of water in with you... More

This was a once in a lifetime experience!!!! You make three stops. The first is in the open Ocean where you swim with black tip sharks and sting rays. There were probably about 30 sharks swimming so close you could touch them!!! Then you go to the Coral Gardens where I have to say the Coral is pretty brown (but... More

First, before I start complaining :), let me say that service part was great. ALL of their employees were extremely friendly and accommodating, lagoonarium grounds are well kept and nicely setup and some activities are really fun. Now, one thing for you to know is that if you go there in the morning, before they take you to lagoonarium, they... More

We booked the half day tour and all we 'missed out on' was a BBQ lunch. The coral was gorgeous, the fish were plentiful, and being able to swim with rays and sharks was incredible (coming from someone who isn't really into animals). At the end I got to grab onto a shark and ride on top of it underwater....very... More
