Great and unique snorkeling tour! Quentin was our guide and was extremely knowledgeable about the island and its marine life. We did the shark and sting ray feeding on another island, so we wanted a different experience in Bora Bora. This excursion was truly unique and we were able to see and experience the different and amazing ecosystems, marine habitats... More

We had a wonderful morning exploring 4 different sites with Tuaiva, who was an excellent, knowledgeable and enthusiastic guide. We saw schools of manta rays and eagle rays. We also visited a healthy coral garden and a lagoon filled w lots of tropical fish, barracuda and a huge eel! I hope to squeeze in another outing if we have time... More

We just finished a beautiful tour of Bora Bora with Pure Snorkeling. Our guide, Quentin, was awesome and wouldn't rest until we found Manta Rays. We ended up finding 3 of them! Quentin is a great free diver and took some awesome pictures and videos on my Go Pro.

This should be on everyone's "must do" list for a Bora Bora trip. The lagoon offers so many visual treasures, and Fabien is the right guide to reveal them. With his good humor and 20 years experience in BB, he delighted our small group with his knowledge of the island and its colorful sea life. We were treated to swimming... More

This is a must do in Bora Bora. The snorkeling at the resorts are great but this tour brings you sights you can only see by leaving the resort. Typically they take you to see sharks but didn't on our tour because my daughter and another woman was afraid. Instead he took us to an area where the ocean dropped... More

This was an incredible snorkeling trip. To start, we had a fantastic guide -- Tuaiva was knowledgeable and very involved with making sure your experience is amazing. He made sure no one missed seeing the manta rays, eels and other cool sea life. He also made sure that we avoided places that didn't have good visibility (called ahead) and instead... More

Quentin gave us a brilliant tour of many highlights of the lagoon and reefs of Bora Bora. From the countless fish (and one docile barracuda), to the fantastic array of coral, sea cucumbers, anemones, clown fish, and more, culminating with a school of 27 Eagle rays, it was a rich marine experience. Quentin is friendly, fun, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic. One... More

Have just come back from this tour with our guide, Quentin. This trip was worth every cent. Amazing fish of all different varieties swimming right up to you feeding from the bread-so many you were surrounded. Gorgeous colours and all sorts of behaviours. Also saw eagle and mantra rays and then finished off in another coral garden with more amazing... More

My husband and I were celebrating our 20th anniversary in Bora Bora and booked this snorkeling adventure based on it's reviews. It didn't disappoint! Our guide, Quentin, was incredibly knowledgeable and friendly. We made four stops and saw the manta ray, clown fish, the coral garden, and thousands of other fish as well (at the aquarium). We even got to... More
