          Perfect length of time for snorkeling
          Had such a fun time, and literally saw everything on the list of fish/ animals expected. The boat was a little late (10 min) picking us up, but we were promptly emailed about this and so were aware of the minor delay. Our guide Hiro slowed down at some parts of the trip to point out spots around the island of historical and celebrity interest. We also traveled to spots all around the island. Highly recommend, even for people who aren't strongly interested in snorkeling, like myself.

          A wet, wild ride and some of the best snorkeling ever
          We had a great day with Capt. Hiro and Bora Bora H20. Aimee was really easy to communicate with and helped us decide which boat to choose for a private half day trip for myself, my husband, and my parents. We knew that my folks wouldn’t want to snorkel so we wanted to make sure that the boat was comfortable and offered some shade. When we met Capt. Hiro at the pier, he let us know that we had the option to cancel because the weather was not ideal. In the end, we maybe should’ve sent my folks back to the ship because even though they have been on boats all their lives, It was a bit rough and especially in a speedboat (there may have been a little silent backseat driving from my captain father when it got really rough and wet). It was cool how the front windshield and roof came together on the Four Winns and offered quite a bit of protection. Hiro did a great job of finding us some snorkel spots that, perhaps because of the weather, were not crowded at all. At the first stop, he swam with us and a life preserver I think so that we could rest if we needed to, and then at the next stop, it was calm enough and maybe he felt like we wouldn’t need that backup. We also got to use dive fins, which was a treat – I felt like a mermaid! And it was great that they provided towels for my mom to bundle up in. The Coral Gardens stop was amazing! If only the sun had been shining a little more… but still it was some of the best snorkeling I’ve ever done in my entire life and Hiro seemed to know that reef like the back of his hand, down to specific anemone. He was an excellent guide, showing us sea life that I would’ve missed otherwise. We’ve been lucky enough to snorkel in some pretty amazing places and this was the coolest to me for the clams alone! This is the one time I wish we’d brought our GoPro. Unfortunately, my little pouch for my camera wasn’t working great, but it was nice to just enjoy our time once I realized I wasn’t going to get any good shots. But if you have the chance to go, bring a good camera option!

          H20 bora bora snorkel tour
          Just returned from my second trip to the paradise of Bora Bora. This year I wanted to try and snorkel with the manta rays. I booked on line before arriving and David and Amy were personable and very responsive to my questions. They even agreed to do a ‘manta dance’ with me in hopes they would show up! I did not get the guides name, but day of excursion, they were prompt to get us at Maitai dock. Boat was comfortable, clean, and fast. When we got to the ‘cleaning station’ and got in the water, he said just to wait. Within minutes, the first huge manta swam from below. I was overjoyed. But there was another one, then 2 together!! What?!?! It was awesome to see a total of 7 mantas just slowly swimming. My photos turned out great! We then went to the coral gardens which was beautiful and so vibrant. Then he went to a spot and could see the large group of eagle rays about 25 feet below (how the neck he saw that I gave no clue)…great to just hover above them and share their space for a bit. Overall an awesome experience and I cannot say enough about this intimate experience (6 on board) and how incredible everything was- Amy and David had great communication for all the booking and payment stuff and I wish I could’ve met them- This is a must do!!!

          great experience
          H2O Bora Bora were outstanding! David and Aimee reply quickly to emails and are flexible in working out schedules. Their boat was immaculate and the Captain Wilson was a professional, fun, smart young guide that comes from the area and loves to share his knowledge. Compared to the other operators that we came across on our 3 week adventure in Tahiti, H2O Bora Bora was the best, no question.

          THE BEST PART OF OUR TRIP!!
          I can’t say enough about how amazing Wilson and Vincent were with our H2O private snorkeling excursions. They are basically like marine biologists and clearly love and respect the sea life. They found manta rays for us (we saw EIGHT!), eagle rays, and countless fish. Wilson brought us to the most beautiful reef I have ever seen in my life – the colors were AMAZING – better than the Whitsunday Islands of Australia. While we were snorkeling, he would remove the seaweed from the coral that was competing for sunlight. You could tell he loved and cared for the coral. This wasn’t just a job to him, it was a passion. Vincent brought us to swim in the ocean! He showed us where the lava used to flow – which was insane. He also showed us all sorts of sea life (clown fish, eagle rays, and manta rays again!). They were both amazing captains. You guys MUST go on their tours. I can’t emphasize this enough – doing these two private excursions with Wilson and Vincent were the highlight of the trip!

          Great snorkeling with Hiro!
          We took a private half-day snorkeling tour with Hiro. We saw manta rays, beautiful coral gardens, a group of 17 eagle rays, and thousands of beautiful fish. This was both educational and exhilarating. Hiro was an exceptional guide.

          Gorgeous morning with Rays
          Matt kept us safe and entertained. He made the morning feel smooth and fun. We were able to see Manta and Eagle Rays as well as beautiful coral.

          Absolutely the BEST Snorkeling tour in Bora Bora!!
          In the past two years, we have been lucky to visit Bora Bora on eight separate days (via cruise ships). On each of day in Bora Bora we were able to do the morning or afternoon snorkeling tour (shared boat) with H20 Bora Bora. Bora Bora is one of the most beautiful islands in the world and its lagoon is simply spectacular! Such beautiful and clear water colors! And H20 Bora Bora made it all come alive! David and Hiro are excellent guides and with their beautiful FAST boats, they took us EVERYWHERE around the Lagoon to snorkel with the huge Manta rays (we usually snorkeled with 2-7 of these magnificent creatures), schools of beautiful eagle rays (12-50 of them) — and guided snorkeling tours to Bora Bora’s famed Coral Gardens and its famous Acquarium. With H20 Bora Bora’s FAST boats, we were usually the FIRST tour at these sites! Absolutely beautiful corals and thousands of tropical fish — usually all to our selves! As an added unexpected bonus, on 3 of our H20 Bora Bora trips, Hiro “found” large pods of Spinner dolphins. They were jumping, spinning and swimming around the boat — and they came to us — Hiro simply cut the engines and for up to 30 minutes the “spinners” entertained us! Super special experience. If we could, we would give H20 Bora Bora SIX stars! Great boats, super guides, owner and staff: David, Aimee and Hiro. Absolutely the BEST snorkeling experience on Bora Bora with very small intimate groups (4-7) and such a great value!! We love Bora Bora and we will be back with David and Hiro as soon as we can!

          Incredible snorkel tour on Bora Bora!
          We loved swimming with the manta rays. Our guide, Hiro, helped us to have an amazing experience just 15 feet above the rays. It was magical! The coral garden was stunning featuring a beautiful array of all the colors of fish, coral and clams. We saw at least 100 eagle rays as well. Thank you for a great experience!

          Most memorable
          First of many snorkel trips during our stay and Wilson made it most memorable. The coral gardens around Bora Bora are incredible, Wilson seemed to know where we'd get the private experience. We were obviously in great care as he guided us through coral heads bigger than a truck with tight turns and more amazing views with each. Amazing. Then we got to see Mantas, a turtle or 2 from the boat (they're scared of boats here so hard to find) so many eagle rays, so many fish and more. Every stop was something amazing . We tried to book another with them but they are a popular company!

          Amazing family experience!
          My family and I had the most incredible experience working with H2O. First off, traveling with a young family, the team at h2o were more than amazing as they have young ones of their own. Truly helped with communication and feeling great with our booking. We are fortunate enough to have Hiro as our guide and he was absolutely stellar finding perfect spots for our family in our comfort of our two little ones! They fell asleep on the boat ride and Hiro was still able to let us know of amazing Polynesian tradition and legends! I cannot recommend them highly enough, so look forward to our next booking with them!

          Incredible experience swimming with rays, sharks and all types of exotic fish. Rudolf was an amazing, knowledgeable and patient guide and one of the main reasons the excursion was so enjoyable. Highly recommend!

        This was my first ever dive and it was one of the best experiences I have ever had. My sister signed me up for this dive and because I can't swim I was initially a little nervous but David was such a great guide he helped my sister and I throughout the whole thing. Once we got into the water it was like entering another world we got to see so many little fishies, I loved being under water. Don't hesitate to book your first dive with them because they were super helpful and sweet throughout the whole experience!

        Our instructor, Fred, met us on the dock of our hotel, the IC Thalasso, and we were surprised to find out we were the only ones on the tour. Private tour! He brought us to a popular scuba stop near the Four Seasons and gave us a safety briefing before getting us set up. My husband was the first in the water as he's done an intro scuba dive before. I was nervous. I was in the water next and Fred allowed us time to get used to breathing through the regulator, practiced getting water out of our masks, and once we felt comfortable, Fred was in the water with us and we were down. We slowly went below the surface, stopping every so often to make sure we were okay and equalizing the pressure in our ears. Soon we were off on a 37 minute trip around the coral, down to depths of just about 20 feet. Would highly recommend H2O and their staff. Great communication up to and including the day of the dive.

        Scuba diving in Bora Bora is always going to be good. Going with David made things even better. A truly fantastic tutor who was able to calm and teach with ease my wife who was quite anxious before. It was so good we did a second dive.
        One of the most genuine guys you will meet, and a fantastic experience in the small number he does his tours with. (Max 4 people.) Thank you for the amazing experience and being such a good guy.

        I always wanted to trying scuba diving but didn't feel comfortable enough to do it. David made sure me and my sister felt safe and confident; even though my sister didn't know how to swim at all. He explained the process clearly and made sure we understood everything before our dive. Once we started he guided us and made sure we were good. Thank you for the most amazing experience of our lives.
