My husband and I did the snorkelling tour with Ben a French native speaker with great English, a great sense of humour and informative explanations. Aside from taking you to unique places where other tours would take you it is a no fuss half day tour spent in the water and above spotting manta rays, swimming with eagle ray and sting rays, weaving through stunning coral barrier of bora bora and being overwhelmed by the number and beauty of fishes in the largest natural aquarium. The tour guide is with you the whole time in the water making those not so confident at snorkelling feeling really safe while pointing out the underwater sights. Thanks Ben for a memorable and awesome adventure.

Did the shared tour with Reynald as our guide. Had a fabulous time .. we visited 4 spots and Reynald was in the water with us for all 4, pointing interesting things out. The 1st site had many colorful fish and a giant eel, the 2nd site was the most beautiful coral garden I have ever seen (have seen a few really nice ones here in Malaysia / Indonesia while snorkelling and diving). It had the added advantage of being so close to the surface, so the sunlight made all the colors pop out. On the 3rd site we saw a school of eagle rays about 2 minutes after we jumped in, and on the 4th site we managed to see 2 manta rays after circling the area twice (glad we didn't give up after the 1st try!)

When we got picked up, Reynald asked us what we wanted to see that day, and I got to see all I wanted to see. It may be worthwhile to mention it as you make your booking too, so they can group you accordingly. He said site accessibility does depend on weather conditions and swimmer ability.

Thanks to Pure Snorkeling so my friends and I enjoyed the wonderful snorkeling in Bora Bora.

All members in our group love the beautiful see in Bora Bora, so we decided to make another snorkeling trip before leaving. The previous tour boat was fully booked so we called Pure Snorkeling. Although they have had several tours booked, but still they called another boat to accommodate our group. Also they gave us some discount. The price was pretty reasonable. We have 10 including kids, so the tour became a private tour. The captain was a nice young man. The entire trip was exciting, and he told a lot of jokes so it's full of laugh. He even let the kids "drive" the boat for a few minutes. With his leading, we saw manta ray, black tip reef sharks, lemon sharks and of course a lot of colorful fish.

Everyone in the group was very satisfied with the service. So recommend their service if you are going to stay in Bora Bora.

We are traveling with a group of 8 and all of us took this excursion 2 days ago in Bora Bora. All of us said it was the best snorkeling excursion we have ever taken. Our guide was Christoff, and he couldn't have been more knowledgeable, friendly, patient, and competent. This company is also very interested in protecting the reefs and the environment. We went to 4 dive sites and he took the boat around the entire island, giving us some history of the island as well. We are all still talking about this excursion, and cannot recommend them high enough. And with the prices in Bora Bora, this is truly a value for your money. Please do yourself a favor and book this snorkeling trip. I can't imagine you'll be disappointed!!

We just returned from Bora Bora and had the pleasure of spending the morning with this company. Our guide/boat captain was Terry and he was fantastic! This was one of the most fun and informative excursions we have done in French Polynesia. Terry's knowledge of the local geography and sea life was extensive and he even adjusted the snorkel sites due to bad weather on the North end of the lagoon. We were treated to one of his special spots on the outer reef and had the opportunity to view some of the most amazing corals. If you have the chance to use Reef Discovery during your stay in Bora Bora, do it, you will not be disappointed. And if you get lucky to have Terry as your guide, you might even be treated to his impromptu dancing to "Happy"!
