Fantastic!!! This is your snorkelling tour in BB!!! Run by a local family, they'll take you to the best spots in and out the lagoon to spot manta rays, sharks and corals. It was only 4 of us in the tour and we went to places where no other tourist boats were.

We loved the snorkeling trip so much we did it two days in a row. We had Leo as our guide on one day with his dad the Captain and the next day we had Leo again and his younger brother as the captain. I know they do different spots to start, but we started with swimming with the small... More

My wife and i did both full day AND half day (on two separate days) . Both are awesome. Here's the TLDR (Too long didn't read): Go for full-day, lunch is included for just a little bit more. You're guaranteed to see fish, sting rays, and sharks. Other fish that we were fortunate enough to see that might not always... More

It's a big statement saying it's the best snorkelling tour I have ever done... I've travelled around the world numerous times and snorkelled in many of the top rated locations... But this tour was awesome on so many levels. My husband and I did this tour as part of our honeymoon, we both loved it so much, we considered booking... More

We had done a tour 20 years ago for a shark feeding and were not sure we wanted to go again. However, we obtained a 1/2 day tour included in our reservation for the hotel which was booked by Pacific for Less, so we went. We were so glad we did! We first went to see the manta rays, and... More

I have read dozens of reviews of various snorkeling tours, and my obeservation is everyone who went with Raanui ended up liking them just about to the same degree everybody loved the other tours. There are a couple of people trying to compare the different tours, but the differences are small and mostly subjective in nature. In other words, snorkeling... More

This tour was booked for us thru our Agent Pacific for Less, but Im sure any travel agent or the hotel can arrange it for you. This is a TOP NOTCH family run business. The mom, son and daughter-in-law ran the tour and picked us up directly from our hotel. They took us to 4 different spots to see many... More

We just returned from a 6 day stay at the St. Regis and we cannot recommend this tour highly enough. It was booked by our agent at Pacific for Less and Leo came to pick us up at the St. Regis. We made 4 stops -- the first was to see the giant manta rays. Leo knew where to look... More

Just got back from Bora Bora and Moorea. While in Bora Bora we did the Rannui snorkel tour. We couldn't be more pleased. How they are rated #10 is beyond me other than someone must be stacking the deck on reviews/ratings. This is a top notch family ran operation. There were 11 of us total on the boat and Rannui...

I have absolutely no complaints about this tour! My husband and I did the full day tour. First snorkeling stop we saw 2 Manta Rays. Unfortunately it happened very fast and we didn't see them again but that is their personality and our guide searched long and hard for us to find more, they just didn't want to be out!... More
