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...

Swimming with the Sharks has been on our bucket lists for years and our recent trip to Bora Bora provided the perfect platform for putting a big "check" next to that item. We made inquiries at the front desk of our hotel (Hilton Bora Bora) and other guests, and the local vendor Raanui Lagoon Safari was clearly the favorite. We... More

Our travel agent booked us this tour and it was absolutely one of the best highlight of our trip in Bora Bora. They are organized and relaxed. We saw so many colors of blue that one can imagine. I wish to stay longer. Snorkeling is not my straight. They help me to go through the current and showed me varies... More

We booked this excursion before we came to Bora Bora and we are so glad we did! This is a family run business and supports locals. We went to 4 different sites: 1st a coral garden with 20-30 ft water and so many fish, our guide even coaxed a Moray eel out of it's hole for us to see. 2nd... More

There were 6 of us off a cruise ship who booked this tour of the Bora Bora Lagoon. The weather varied from sunny to windy and rainy but Leo and his mother, Arieta (our guides for the tour) were wonderful. They dropped the sides to protect us from the rain and raised them when possible. The covered boat was a... More

Booked these guys by directly emailing Arieta who answered all the questions. We paid them cash at the end of the tour. We did the all day tour which involved being picked up from our hotel pier and then collecting all the others. We first went to a place where Leo and his brother fed the reef tip sharks and... More

We booked an excursion with them in September for our December vacation. They NEVER bothered to reconfirm with us, so I emailed them a few days before our excursion and they never bothered to reply. On the day of our excursion, we were sitting on the dock waiting, but they didn't show up. We called them and, at first the... More

Once on the boat, they took us to a place where there were little sharks which were fed. the sharks are not too big and do not harm. there are many sting rays though who will brush by you... More

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
