Pre-booked prior to Bora Bora and well worth it! Picked up from Four Seasons and our guide, Christophe, was amazing! Small group, and Christophe shared his expert knowledge about marine life in the area...we saw Eagle Rays, Manta Rays, Sting Rays, many colourful schools of fish and even dolphin pods (in our "extra" search to see if any Humpback whales...

The reef discovery trip was the highlight of our stay on Bora Bora. We liked it so much that we went twice. Our guide David was very friendly and had a great sense of service. Every time we went into the water he put antifog solution into our masks to make sure we saw everything. The second time we went... More

I made the reservation a week prior to arriving to Bora Bora. Booking and corresponding with Laura was quick and smooth. Having done another snorkeling trip in Tahiti, the experience we had with Reef Discovery was far better. First of all, the boat is nice, and they cap the tour at 4 couples. Our guide, David, is amazing and has... More

I'm a little late in writing this review as I thought I had done so, when I returned since it was the highlight of a 28 day cruise to the South Pacific. This was our second trip to Bora Bora so we wanted to try something different, had already swam with the sharks and fed stingrays, so we thought try... More

We were very happy with this snorkling trip. Christoph took us out on his boat with his daughter, son and just 2 other couples. I think we made 4 stops, each more beautiful than the last- I especially loved the last stop in the South Island which had the bluest waters I've ever seen! Christopher was very informative, telling us... More

I felt I must add to the multitude of compliments this trip has received already. We went yesterday, 7th September, with 4 couples on the boat. Ben, our guide, provided great individual attention to all. We did the regulation 4 stops but missed out on the mantas. With Ben's good humour, knowledge, and optimism our disappointment was soon forgotten. Coral... More

We asked our hotel concierge for the best snorkeling excursion and they told us Pure Snorkeling. They were absolutely right! The boats are small (accommodate 8 people max) but fast (you waste little time traveling between snorkeling spots). We made 4 stops, with a bonus stop looking for whales outside the atoll (sadly none were out that day). What made... More

IMHO the Virgin Islands has the best coral reefs. Have dived almost all over the world. The reefs in Bora Bora are a close second. However, Reef Discovery has been the best outfit hands down. Ben was our guide yesterday and being in the Coast Guard, I know a good boat handler. He is very knowledgeable about the local diving... More

We just got back from our Honeymoon in Bora Bora and the snorkeling excursion was the highlight of our trip. Ben was a great guide and very knowledgeable about the island.

We stayed in Bora Bora for 5 nights, booked a couple of tours and this was by far the most enjoyable one! We were particularly impressed with our boat Captain, Reynald. Knowledgeable, humorous and genuinely affable, he was the difference between a good trip and a great trip. Reynald took lots of time explaining the different snorkelling spots, the types... More
