This was a great snorkeling experience split up on four different locations. Three of them were in shallow water and one on deep water close to the reef. Get ready for close encounters with different species of rays and sharks (most common are sting rays and black tip sharks). The last stop was our favorite. There we met with uncountable... More

This was the highlight of our trip. LouLou was great and our on-the-beach lunch was simply perfect. Everywhere there is something interesting to see at any time. The boat was comfortable and we enjoyed this excursion immensely.

What a great snorkeling tour! There were just 6 people on our tour which was great as it was not too crowded. Our guide Tuaiva was friendly and knowledgeable, he pointed out interesting sea creatures to us like the moray eel and a barracuda fish. Although we did not manage to see any Manta or eagle rays, we swam with... More

This is the first time I have written a review on TripAdvisor. I came to Bora Bora with my mom. I wanted Mom to try snorkeling for the first time in her life. I was a little concerned at first due to her age and her limited experience with swimming in the sea. But Manu, our guide, absolutely pulled us... More

It was snorkeling tour of Bora Bora. Enjoyed it immensely! Our guide was Ben who was simply outstanding in everything - pace, places to see, places to snorkel, overall information about the island and the best spots on and around it.

Our guide was Manu, and he was great. We snorkeled around different parts of Bora Bora (including the coral garden) for a few hours and saw manta rays, eagle rays, barracudas, and much more. The snorkeling part was beautiful, interesting, and different. Additionally, Manu was a great guide - he was attentive, careful, nice, and so knowledgeable. He had everything... More

The skin diving trip was better than the Scuba Diving. We saw more fish and the sharks, massive barracuda and giant eel topped it all off. Our guide added to the trip with his knowledge of the island the currents and the sea life. Well Done

We did two excursions with Pure Snorkeling and Reynald was our guide both times. Both excursions were by far the most memorable that we did. We snorkeled and saw all kinds of cool things and saw Manta Rays. We had a trip that included lunch. So amazing!We have kids ranging from age 13 to 24. They all agreed this as... More

Our tour with Pure Snorkeling was, without any doubt, our best experience snorkeling in Bora Bora. First, we highly recommend private tours. It may be more expensive but it is worth it. VALUE. Manu was our boat driver, tour guide, and snorkeling guide. He arrived on time in a beautiful white boat that looked and felt new. The advantage of... More

Other reviewers are generally spot on with their high praise for the tour, including our very helpful guide Guillaume. I took the 1/2 day group snorkel tour circling the island (7 people plus Guillaume) and stopped in 4 places. We saw Coral Gardens, manta ray, eagle rays, and "The Aquarium" with 1000's of beautiful fish. I was scheduled to take... More
