After pickup at your hotel or at the Vaitape pier, board your private boat for your exclusive 3- or 6-hour snorkel cruise, which permits a customized experience with your own captain who shows you the best of the island’s incredible lagoons and coral reefs.
Set off around the island to prime spots, based on your interests and the conditions that day. You may head to shallow waters to see gentle stingrays and blacktip reef sharks. Your captain-guide can even show you how to interact with the tame creatures, or simply observe from the boat if you prefer to stay dry.
You’ll also snorkel around colorful coral gardens teeming with tropical fish. Your guide can help you to identify the marine life that you see as you explore. If you are new to snorkeling or nervous in the ocean, your guide is happy to assist you so that you feel at ease in the water.
If you select the 3-hour tour, you’ll return around midday for hotel drop-off.
Optional UpgradeIf you select the 6-hour tour, follow the itinerary above and stop for lunch at a pristine beach with a view of Bora Bora’s majestic Mt Otemanu and sparkling blue lagoon. While your captain prepares a delicious Polynesian-style barbecue picnic, you can relax on the white-sand beach and cool off in the calm, clear waters.
When lunch is ready, eat at a shaded table on the beach, choosing from dishes such as grilled fish, chicken or beef, served with salad, fruit and other sides. Afterward, enjoy more time to snorkel, swim or sunbathe at your leisure.
At the end of your 6-hour cruise, your guide returns you to your Bora Bora hotel to wrap up a memorable private tour in paradise.
