I took a snorkeling tour with Pure Snorkeling last winter (Dec. 2013) and am sheepishly just now writing my review. Basically, it was AMAZING. A truly luxurious small yacht took 6 of us out to see the Manta Rays, then to many many different coral reefs around Bora Bora. Our tour guide was very knowledgable and kept us all very... More

I had only one day in Bora Bora and when my morning flight was cancelled I thought I was out of luck. I let Reef Discovery know about the flight change and Laura told me to call her when I arrived. I did and she offered me two choices, one of which was to pick me up personally in town... More

My wife, daughter and I spent this past Thanksgiving week in Bora Bora. The highlight of our trip there was the 4 hour excursion on the lagoon with Pure Snorkeling. Our guide, Ben, was friendly and enthusiastic, and was a great help to those who were less familiar with the water while managing to keep the rest of us engaged... More

Absolutely amazing 3.5 hour morning trip with excellent tour guide Ben. Stopped at 4 spots. Unfortunately didnt see any Manta Rays but did see a pod of 17 Eagle rays which was amazing. The aquarium stop- I have never seen such an array and variety of beautiful fish and the coral stop was amazing too. Do not leave Bora Bora... More

My girlfriend and I loved this experience in Bora Bora! Ben was our guide and he did a great job of keeping us entertained and informed. He was able to communicate with everyone either in French or English, which was very good for another participant who was from a French background. During the snorkelling, the highlight was seeing some manta... More

Fabien took us around Bora Bora in his speed boat for about 5 hours. We started by swimming with about a dozen reef sharks. Fabien then spotted a huge manta ray, and instructed us how to swim with around the manta without scaring him away. We then went to a few different spots with coral reefs and a ton of... More

Well worth the money. Tour 8-30 till 3.00. We were picked up from our resort in a small super fast jet boat by a lovely Frenchman Ben. It was only a small group so was a very personalised experience. We went to 4 snorkling spots - coral gardens, looking for manta rays, a drift snorkel by the reef and then... More

So we get on the boat and Fabien asks where we're from. We say San Diego and he tells us we're white. We knew then it was going to be a fun trip. Fabien was very accommodating the whole 3.5 to 4 hours during our tour and knew exactly where to go. The highlights included him diving deep to show... More

we did the snorkeling tour with Damien. They accommodated our date change since the weather wasn't great for the time we signed up for originally. Plus, when on the tour, we saw other tour boats packed with people and were very 'touristy'. we were very happy with our guide and the amount of people on our boat.

Picked up right on time at the hotel, group of 8 in total plus guide. Had to supply own snorkel and fins. Guide (Fabien) was kind, very funny (one of the highlights), safe and professional. He gave us a quick explanation of the island before soon pulling up to the first spot and then we just went hopping from then... More
