Amazing, amazing experience. Christophe and his assistant, "Tu", took 6 of us on a 3 1/2 hour tour around Bora Bora with 4 stops for snorkeling (there were supposed to be 3 but the first one had only 2 Eagle Rays, so he added another stop where we saw a group of 20+ Eagle Rays only 10 feet below us!...

We thoroughly enjoyed an excellent snorkel trip with Reef Discovery. The arrangements were handled flawlessly by Laura and our trip guide Fabian was outstanding. He gave extra attention to my wife who is not a strong swimmer to ensure that she had a safe and memorable trip. It was one of the highlights of our 28 day cruise aboard Oceania's... More

This was an absolutely exceptional snorkeling trip with Fabian who was so knowledgeable and fun. The boat was lovely and we had a total of 10 people snorkeling. He gave us bread to feed the fish so they would come to us in the lagoon. The fish were gorgeous and plentiful. He led us through the coral garden and found... More

Fabulous Fabian took my husband and me on the best three hours snorkeling with manta and eagle Rays. We also saw and identified many fish. The boat was perfect with a Bimini top and Fabian even sprayed our goggles before we went in the water. He was also very helpful getting me on and off the boat. He was extremely... More

We love snorkeling and this tour was probably the best one that we have been on yet. It rained during our tour (this seemed to be a normal occurrence during our vacation) and it didn't ruin the visibility or the fun! Fabian was GREAT! He was organized, funny, professional and kept us safe! You could tell he really did care... More

We spent two weeks in French Polynesia, and this adventure was the best! Ben made it into a pseudo eco-tour, by going in the water with our small group of eight at specific sites in the lagoon to give us a very special view of the underwater life. I recommend, without hesitation, to anyone going to Bora Bora.

Pure Snorkeling tour was definitely a highlight during our stay on Bora Bora. The tour guide/owner of the company was extremely knowledgeable, funny, and engaging. It's more intimate than other tours. I think the max is 6 people on the boat so it's more of a personalized experience. I'm a beginner at snorkeling and was a little apprehensive. The guide... More

If you want to see it all (coral garden, manta rays, sharks, and beautiful fish) this is your tour. Ben was our guide and he was great. The boat is in excellent condition (read like new), very spacious even for a group of 10. The only thing you can possibly complain about is that beers are not included, but soft... More
