We were extremely impressed with the tour and our guide Ben was very knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor. The tour was very flexible with timings and locations visited to make the best of the day. There was also a strong focus on safety and good value for money. Highly recommend.

This was a brilliant snorkelling trip! The morning started by being picked up from the hotel in a lovely speedboat and we sped out accross the turquoise lagoon. Fabian was our guide who was great fun, knew so much about the marine life and how he managed to spot some of the animals whilst driving the boat I don't know.... More

What can you say when you have swum with sharks, dived on manta rays, watched a moray being fed, had an octopus grab your arm and been smothered by reef fish eating bread from your hand? It was an amazing experience. Fabien was a fantastic guide. We were a small group and he was constantly aware of what each of... More

This is the best snorkling tour on the best snorkling location in the world. And I've done Hawaii (Oahu, Kauai and Big Island), Martinique, Great Barrier Reef in Australia, Florida Keys, you name it. We booked a private tour with Christophe as a guide. He's like a moving wikipedia of marine life and Bora Bora's formation and history: has the... More

We went with Ben on July 19th and had an amazing trip. We swam with 12 foot wide Manta Rays at our first stop, followed by Spotted Eagle Rays, a mind-blowing coral garden and a relaxing swim with tons of reef fish. Ben was a fantastic guide and we highly recommend this activity - it was our third snorkeling trip... More

The tour took us to beautiful places, on a great speed boat. The tour guide, however, managed to hamper what could have been a great experience with his arrogance. Fabian was dismissive of his guests, offensive in his poor attempts of humor and kept reminding all of the "many dangers" of the waters. We were expecting to learn more about... More

First off we'd like to say Thank-You David! It was nice to have a guide that was not only an experienced dive instructor, but who was knowledgeable about the history of Bora Bora, the lands and the aquatic life. We were taken by a very nice well-kept boat to 4 different snorkel locations. On the first we saw 6 manta... More

We booked this tour based on the high rating from TA and we were not disappointed. Ben is a very knowledgeable about sea life in Bora Bora and helpful since i wasn't a confident swimmer. We were pretty lucky that we saw the manta ray in the first stop and we love the stop that we got to swim with... More

This snorkel tour was on a small speed boat, with 7 of us on board. We independently arranged the excursion from our cruise ship, the Windspirit. Ben, our guide, met us at the tender dock in Viatape, after picking up the other snorkelers at their hotels. We visited the "aquarium", an area with a lot of fish, who really like... More
