“Best thing you could do on your Bora Bora trip!”
Reviewed May 5, 2013

This is absolutely the best thing you can do in Bora Bora. I wouldn't bother booking prior to travelling to Bora Bora. Book directly with Tahiti helicopters either at the airport in Papeete or at the Vaitape harbour in Bora Bora. You will save yourself a fair bot of money vs booking through your hotel. Our hotel quoted us 30% more through booking through them. Our 15min trip with another couple (ended up being 25mins as we had to pick up the other couple from their hotel) costs 40,600XPF for the 2 of us.

The helicopter pilot was very knowledgeable and friendly and his assistant was amazing taking photo's for us. We did a full loop of the island there was excellent visibility so we were able to catch a glimpse of Tupai and other surrounding islands without travelling out there. Really great experience and excellent photo's!

“Romantic Escapade on Open Heart Island Tupai”
Reviewed March 19, 2013

My wife and I did this the day after we had our wedding ceremony. Arguably the best moments of our trip and something we will never forget. It felt so exclusive and we enjoyed champagne (poured by our pilot) with a professional photographer taking photos to 'immortalize' the experience. Fantastique!! Mauruuru Roa!

“fantastic quick flight”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

We took a quick 7-8 minute flight from Le'Taha'a resort to the Four Season Bora Bora on 2/9/13. Each hotel has a helicopter pad. Great quick way to transfer. Got some great photos as we approached Bora Bora. It was very quick, arrived at the Four Seasons and 20 minutes later we were checked in and on the beach there, so we got the most out of our day. A cool way to arrive at the resort.

“Best romantic views of Bora Bora”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

We came in on M/V Paul Gauguin, and wanted to see Island by air, before doing remainder of our three days of Bora Bora excursions... We decided on the very romantic Sunrise tour, and, we liked it so much that, later, we took the equally romantic Sunset tour...

“Just awesome !”
Reviewed February 15, 2013

The Bora Bora Helicopter flight over Bora Bora was together with Bora Bora Subamarine the most spectacular event we did on our stay on Bora Bora. The thirty minutes flight around Mount Otemanu and over the Motu-Resorts offered stunning pictures. The whole flight was round up by the pilot, who commented on the different Hotels and Sights on Bora Bora.
A must !
