I could not swim at all and am very scared of water. I had tried several times to persuade my partner to cancel the excursion. Ben made me feel very safe and made me feel comfortable of water. I enjoyed snorking so much that I was one of the first one to get into the water on our second snorkling... More

Went with Fabian who was incredible on March 12th. Fabian you are correct you have the best office in the world. If you love snorkeling this trip is a must. Words cannot describe the beauty you will see. As Fabian said you will cry at the next stop.

On March 18th, 2015 we hired a private boat from Pure Snorkeling / Reef Discovery. They offered us a lot of choice and flexibility. We booked the day before and we were able to get a private speedboat from from. Our host Ben was really great: super friendly, helpful, funny and explaining a lot about what we were going to...

We took this trip as advised by our travel agent. My only regret was that we didn't take a longer version- ours was 2.5 hours only. But it delivered - we saw rays, and swam with big lemon sharks. This was kind of scary, but I will never forget it. We found the boat was under-provisioned as there were 13... More

Hello Andrea, please note that you have written this review under the wrong company. Pure Snorkeling excursion lasts 3 and a half to 4 hours, we take an average of 8 clients onboard, and most important, we do not pet sting rays, we offer a tour of eco Snorkeling, observing underwater fauna without modifying the animals behavior. Our team of... More

A perfect day thanks to tuaiva! He showed us so many great spots and catered how much info he gave us by each persons interest level. Can't wait to come back and do it all over again.

Great morning on the water with Fabien. He knew the waters and the wildlife very well to find the optimum sites for great viewing of fish, coral, rays and sharks. He was very attentive and observant of client's skill levels and anxiety levels in the water and made sure every one was safe and had an enjoyable experience.

We really felt looked after by david from reef discovery. He really took care to show us the best spots. We saw so many different types and quantity of fish including two mora eals and stingrays. Really helped put the inexperienced snorklers at ease and made sure everyone had a great time by having equipment on hand, providing advise about... More

This was the best trip, by far, of any of the ones we did. First of all, there were only 8 of us on the boat (2 were children, 8 and 13). There was a second boat with friends together, so there were 9 on that boat. The weather was crummy, rainy and windy, so the visibility might have been... More

Where to begin.....Fabian and Killian picked us up at the dock in an awesome Southwind boat. They were both so attentive, funny, entertaining and did I mention handsome?! They made sure that our experience was truly one of a kind, from the historical and local island information, to the best and most beautiful snorkeling spots. Each location was unique and... More

My husband and I came to Bora Bora for our honeymoon. We heard the reef was amazing and we love snorkeling so we booked a snorkeling tour through Reef Discovery. We booked it ourselves and not through the hotel which saved us $40 total. They picked us up right from our hotel dock in the morning. Fabian was our captain... More
