We booked the Submarine through the hotel because we had no other activities left to do. It is a good experience but very expensive for the duration. 35-45 minutes was definitely too short. The gentleman in charge was great! He explained everything in details and was very friendly. You get a nice boat ride to the submarine and then get... More

What an amazing concept! How many people can actually say they've been in a submarine??? So if you head to Bora Bora make sure you are one of those people. It's a once in a lifetime experience and it is incredible! If you are not a diver or if you have small children with you, this is the best way... More

Me and my wife had scheduled this trip through the Four Seasons concierge. We took the boat ride to Vaitape and when we got there I couldn't find anyone responsible for the submarine trip. The lady of the aqua scooter tried to help me but she just couldn't find the submarine's phone number. So I called the concierge and they... More

We had only just gotten our diving certiciates before flying out so were a little hesitant. We jumped at the opportunity to see some sea life, particularly since the submarine would take us to depths significantly beyond what scuba diving would allow. We got upclose to sharks and all manner of fish. The experience was truly magical.

My friend and I really enjoyed this submarine as advertised we saw great coral reef and it's animal life, sharks, jack fishes, and many more. The submarine pilot was a wealth of knowledge of the deep sea and its living habitat.

We had a great time looking at the sharks, fish, and rays. It's great to take smaller kids that can't dive or snorkel yet. The guide was wonderful and informative too.

We booked the Bora Bora Submarine via our Hotel, the Intercontinental Le Moana Resort. The Taxi to Vaitape was extra, but this didn't matter. From Vaitape we took a short boattrip out of the lagoon to the submarine. The Submarine goes deep down to 30 feet direkt on the ground. Sharks, rays and very courious lagoon fish are very close...
