This morning tour was booked through Pacific for Less (AWESOME travel agent! Kudos to them for finding this tour!) so we didn't know what to expect, but it was GREAT! Leo was our guide and was fun/entertaining and informative as we passed hotels and sites, and happy to answer anything we asked. They provided the snorkels, masks and fins, as... More

We spent 10 days in Moorea and Bora Bora. This was my favorite excursion. The snorkeling was great, Leo the guide was very informative and entertaining, and the price was right. My wife and I both loved it. I only wish I had gone on the excursion on multiple days. It's a plus being picked up at the hotel.

Just after sun rise. 1st stop was almost straight in front of our bungalow. We followed our guide ( introduced himself as Mr. No Problem)... More

A must do! If you're interested in seeing the ocean life, this is a great tour! We were picked up at our resort and taken to 5 different spots to snorkel. At our first stop, we saw a manta ray! We also swam with black tipped reef sharks, rays, saw a million different fish and even went out to sea... More

Getting to meet trendy & cool locals and they teach you about crafts and sports, they feed stingrays for you to take videos and you can swim too if you gave the guts, they show you white sharks that will surround the boat, again great photo chance. Then the lunch on the Motu Tape is a dream location and so... More

On our honeymoon we decided to treat ourselves to a snorkel tour of the lagoon for our last day in Bora Bora. We contacted Raanui tours via e-mail 3 days prior to our tour. They requested our room number at the Thalasso Resort to confirm, which we provided via e-mail the morning the day before our tour. They told us... More

My husband and I had the best time with Raanui Tours. It was the experience of a lifetime! Leo was a fantastic tour guide...his fun outlook on life was infectious! We swam with sharks and rays, saw an octopus up close, got a tour of the island, and were even serenaded. It made our trip to Bora Bora so memorable.... More

I love diving and after a number of dives I wanted to cancel this tour thinking it was more of the same but couldn't be happier I didn't. Great tour, favorite of the trip, close and personal with rays and sharks, even had ukulele played for us on the ride back. It was a perfect end to a phenomenal week.
