This excursion was phenomenal. We saw the most beautiful coral & fish. Our guide, Christophe was fabulous. He was a lot of fun & very knowledgeable. We went to four different spots for snorkeling and each area was better than the last. We had a great day.

Ben was an experienced and solicitous guide. We came from a cruise ship, and the boat waited for our delayed tender. We really appreciated that. We saw various Rays, beautiful coral and countless species of reef fish. Ben ensured that our interests were met, and he accommodated everyone who needed floats or snorkeling equipment. The tour boats were full that... More

This turned out to be a great activity. Benjamin, our Captain and guide was on time, outgoing and cheerful. We were advised to make this trip early in our journey to get a layout of the island. When they learned we were staying on the island they suggested we avoid the cruise ship days, because of the number of boats... More

Four of us went with Fabian on a snorkeling trip around the Bora Bora lagoon. There were 8 of us on the boat. Fabian was a wonderful guide - friendly, funny, and very well organized. He took us to 4 snorkeling locations and gave us a bit of a tour of the island in the process. He pointed out fish... More

This was an incredible snorkeling experience with conscientious and engaging tour guides, beautiful boats, and an amazing series of snorkeling experiences. We were carefully guided through beautiful coral gardens that were full of unique fish. In other stops,we saw various types of rays and sharks. Overall, the trip offered multiple ways to see the abundance of fish we had hoped... More

We booked this excursion on line when we booked our cruise. My daughter and her husband had done this same excursion on their honeymoon last year and recommended it to us. We had a great time on a very nice motor boat. The snorkeling was great! They took us to 4 different spots to see different things in each spot.... More

We enjoyed our first excursion with Pure Snorkelling so much that we booked a second trip only a few days later. On our first trip, Fabien took us to several amazing spots. We had the opportunity to swim with a 'flock' of eagle rays - there were at least 20 of them just gliding below us. We viewed an amazing... More

We used Reef Discovery as a private excursion while on a cruise through Bora Bora on MS Marina (Oceania Cruises). We booked well in advance and they were there on time as planned. The tour is exceptional because it used high end water craft with canopies and the group was kept small (8). We covered 5 different snorkel spots and... More
