Come and live a unique experience while in Bora Bora, French Polynesia!
Embark in a guided exploration of one of the Bora Bora lagoon reef onboard your own 2-seat open submersible/scooter. The scooters have an electrical propulsion and are autonomous thus not limiting you to a small diving area.
A typical dive will cover approximately 1.5 Kilometer underwater at a depth of 3-4 meters (12-15 feet) and will last 30-40 minutes. Our guide will stop along the way to allow you to observe the marine life up close.
During the briefing, our guide will teach you how to pilot and debrief you after the dive about the marine life you have. There is no need to be a swimmer or diver to enjoy the experience, anyone over 16 years of age can be a pilot!
Your head will stay dry in its glass bubble, you will breath as you would on the surface. You will be able to talk and share your feelings during the dive while sharing unforgivable moments.
The whole excursion will encompass:
1- FREE Pick up in Vaitape or at one of the Hotels base in our comfortable van.
2- Departure from the pier in Vaitape for a 15-20 minute boat ride to our marine base in the Bora Bora lagoon.
3- Briefing and dive, fresh fruits and refreshments afterward
4- You will then embark on a sightseeing boat ride with a stop to swim and snorkel before returning to Vaitape where you will then be picked up.
An optional video of your underwater tour is also available for sale after the dive. You are also encouraged to take your own underwater camera if you have one.
We have been operating the "scooters" for over 8 years with a perfect safety record. The "scooters" are engineered with a primary air source and backup, it is not possible to neither tilt during the dive nor run out of air.
