We recently used Pure Snorkeling (Reef Discovery) for snorkeling in Bora Bora and had a terrific experience. Christophe was extremely attentive, helpful and informative and we were able to see some terrific marine life including three large manta rays which swam underneath us as we were snorkeling. There were four stops along the way where we saw many colorful fish,... More

We were in Bora Bora the last 2 days (with the Oceania cruise) and did snorkeling with Reef Discovery yesterday. Our captain/guide was Terry. I was very pleased when I saw the boat - very clean, well maintained, and comfortable motor boat. There were 7 of us on the tour, plus Terry. Most of the people were good swimmers and... More

First and foremost, this is a first-class operation. The boat they use is a modern speedboat and it is very nice. David was a wonderful tour guide as well. You visited a few different places. The first place is the aquarium and there are so many fish surrounding you it is unbelievable. Next, we visited Eagle raise. They are in... More

My husband, a great swimmer, had reviewed places to take me, a non-swimmer, on a snorkeling excursion for the first time while we were on shore from our 3-week cruise in the South Pacific. Fabien was our guide and did a fantastic job with our group of 6. Since he could see I was not going to be comfortable in... More

We were a group of 8, four couples, fit nicely on the fast boat that got us around the lagoon and to great spots, two of which are not the usual snorkeling itinerary due to the shallow draught of the boat. Daniel and Ben were incredible guides and very patient with a group of diverse skills and comfort levels in... More

We could not have asked for a better guide, Terry, for our snorkeling tour! Not only was he very informative about all things underwater, he also gave us a history lesson about the island and what the future hold for the island as well. We stopped at four places during the tour. We got to see a Manta Ray, a... More

My wife and I have been snorkeling in Bermuda, Bahamas, Dominican, and Turks & Caicos and this was by far the best experience we've ever had. Our guide, Reynald, was informative and professional as any guide we've ever had. He delivered an amazing four stop tour that included a coral garden, manta rays, eagle rays, sting rays, and as many... More

Amazing experience in a spectacular location! We had 4 snorkel stops and a very informative and entertaining circle tour of the island all in one. Our guide, Fabian, was terrific! He oreiented us about what we would see, then got in the water and led us through each area, making sure everyone saw everything -- he even pulled an octopus... More

Our tour guide was Fabien. He was absolutely fantastic and this tour is more than I could have ever imagined. Our entire trip had sub-par weather, however this single handedly turned around our trip. My wife was scared of the water and doing certain portions of the activities, however I didn't want her to regret not doing them after we... More
