Renting a boat from La Plage was definitely one of the highlights while visiting Bora Bora last month. Seeing the impossible hues of blue, green, and turquoise from your own boat is simply an unforgettable experience. The boat is definitely not fast which is actually quite wonderful because it forces one to drive on "Island Time" and enjoy the lagoon even more!
What really stood out was the customer service I received from Isabelle, the owner. I had booked and prepaid the excursion through my hotel and left my wallet at the hotel. When it came to completing the rental agreement (which generally requires a credit card to hold a deposit) I explained my situation. Isabelle could have easily said no to the rental but made an exception and allowed us to rent the boat without a credit card on file which I thought was incredibly accommodating.

Once we returned Isabelle even offered us a coffee from the restaurant across the street which was the cherry on top. I can highly recommend La Plage for your boat rentals on the stunning Bora Bora lagoon!

We reserved and planned this a long way out. We were greeted by a member of the. Company who promptly drove us to the office to complete our rental. The process was easy and explained thoroughly. We needed to get some snacks and they drove us to the local market and then to the boat. We had a great time.

This was a high point on a vacation with many high points. From the instructions given, to patience in language barriers, to the experience itself, to the pick up and return to our hotel, this is a first-rate experience and company. Our driver Mariano, commented he liked my sunglasses. I gave them to him free, here, take 'em. He was so touched, on the way back to the drop-off point, he stopped at our home and gave our wives necklaces and anklets his wife made and sold. Just good, good people all around. A treasured memory, this day, forever. Forever.

As a boat owner, I was comfortable to rent my own boat rather than go with the crowd on the tour boats. We rented the pontoon boat with the smaller engine. We cruised at 5 mph but was fine since we were in relaxation mode. They give you a map where to go, and not to go, and went to the same spots as the tour boats but had the freedom to stay as long as we wanted. There was a mix up with our reservation date but they rebooked us for two days later without any penalty. We actually went out a second day since we enjoyed the experience. The view of the main island with the turquoise water in front was magnificent. If you are the independent type who would like to avoid the crowds, give this professionally run outfit a try

Very professional, prompt, and pleasant... This day was the highlight of our 16 day vacation! Get the largest pontoon available it has a little bigger motor. We had a pizza at the hotel where the boats are anchored, it was KILLER! Enjoy the water, beaches, & snorkeling at your own leisure......PARADISE!
Many Thanks La Plage!!!
We'll be back....

Absolutely the best way to see all of Bora Bora from the water. Stephan and staff are helpful, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic. Plan ahead, take a safe boating course (BoatUS course online) and rent the 13 foot with 15 hp motor. We circled the main island in less than 3 hours, stopped at beautiful remote beaches, and saw rays, sharks, and beautiful coral. They even picked us up at our hotel dock, and dropped us afterwards. It made our anniversary trip perfect!

Loved the freedom to explore the water around Bora Bora at our own pace. The map was helpful in finding the Coral gardens. Could have been more detailed in other places. The 6hp motor was a little underpowered, but still a nice time. Staff was very friendly and helpful.
