We received a complimentary half-day snorkel tour with Raanui through our travel agency (Pacific For Less, which is outstanding!). We figured it would be just ok; a nice trip through the lagoon, maybe a couple of snorkeling stops, etc. It was SO much more! There were four stops total: one in deeper water for snorkeling, then shallow water to swim... More

We've spent a fantasic half day excursion with Leo and "his little brother", cruising through the pristine waters of Bora Bora's beautiful lagoon. After snokeling in 3 different locations with beautiful corals and fishes, the absolute highlight was the swimming with black tipped reef sharks and VERY friendly rays, who were obviously in love with the two brothers. The cute... More

Wife and I booked the Full Day tour, which was a couple snorkeling stops, shark and ray feeding, and a bbq picnic lunch on a small island. I would highly recommend the full day option, as the lunch was actually really good, with a ton of food to fill yourself up with and then a nice little island to walk... More

This tour was complimentary with our booking through Pacific for Less while staying at the St Regis so we were expecting a bit of snorkelling and a cruise around the island. It was FAR more than we expected - just a wonderful morning out on the water. Leo, our guide, and his little brother were friendly & loads of fun.... More

The manta rays were huge and just a few minutes from our resort. The coral garden and snorkelling is awesome tonnes of different fish. The rays and black tip sharks are crazy, they're all over you. Once in a lifetime experience. A little more snorkelling with more tropical fish, coral, and a really freaky eel. Then the most unbelievable thing... More

I booked a tour with Raanui a couple months ago for my husband and I during our honeymoon in Bora Bora. Arieta responded to my email and we were all set for a half day tour the Wednesday we were there. When we got to Bora Bora Monday April 13th I emailed Arieta to confirm our tour for that Wednesday.... More

We snorkeled with rays, black-tipped reef sharks, saw octopus and morays, as well as a good range of smaller tropicals. The leader provided fascinating commentary on history, resorts, fish, etc. as we circumnavigated Bora Bora, and between him and the boat driver they paid close attention to the group in the water, pointing out creatures, and offering advice as necessary....

This was the most amazing tour my family and I have ever taken. My family was a little nervous about swimming with stingrays and sharks but the guide did an amazing job of settling everyones nerves.

Our tour guide was Leo, and he was amazing! He was a local, and knew the waters and fish so well! He was super friendly and made the tour very fun. We went to four different sites and he made each site special. He lured an eel out of its hiding spot deep in the water, and even tried to... More

I think the french would call it FORMIDABLE! We booked our Shark and Stingray Snorkeling excursion through our hotel concierge. And I do highly recommend booking your excursions through your hotel because (1) they have vetted the companies, (2) they make sure that they show up on time, and (3) you can charge it to your room and avoid the...
