Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

Part of the Leeward Islands of French Polynesia, Bora Bora has a tropical climate, spectacular natural beauty and famed lagoon that entice visitors from around the world to this lush paradise. What better way to see all the beauty of this enchanted paradise than by circumnavigating the whole island by jet boat on a wonderful two-hour tour.

Depart from the pier in Vaitape and take off on an adventure that makes the most of the ever-changing colors of this incredible waterway. Keep your camera at the ready for breathtaking landscapes and views of Mount Otemanu, the island's highest point. French artist Paul Gauguin painted many paintings of Bora Bora, and you'll easily see why he was so inspired!

Your destination is the coral garden, where a wonderland of marine life awaits your discovery. Slip on your snorkeling gear and enter the cool, refreshing water. Crystal-clear and shallow, the lagoon is home to a wide variety of rainbow-hued fish sheltering in the magnificent coral formations. If you're lucky, a sea turtle or harmless stingray might just come out to say hello! An underwater camera captures the splendor and provides a lasting memory of your experience.

Back on board, enjoy some light refreshments and continue your circle around the island noting the ever-changing colors of the lagoon. Your adventure continues at your next stop, a sandbar where you can choose to take a dip or just relax and listen to some island music while admiring this natural phenomenon.

On your return ride, your captain will kick it up a notch. Using the boat's high-speed capability, you'll skim quickly through the water back to the pier.

Special Notes:

Minimum age is 8 years. Some of the seating on the boat is "horseback-style," where you straddle a bench. Wear your swimsuit under your clothing; bring a towel, sunscreen and a hat. Guests should be accustomed to wearing snorkel equipment. Mask and snorkel are provided (some fins may be available but cannot be guaranteed) and you may wish to bring your own for maximum comfort. Wildlife sightings are likely but are not guaranteed. For your own safety and to preserve the environment when snorkeling, do not touch or step on coral reef. We recommend reef shoes in order to avoid any wounds and discomfort. Camera equipment should be carried with care and appropriate protection. On water tours, boat may be wet, personal belongings should be stored with caution. A waiver may be required to be filled out prior departure. We require guests participating in water activities, to know how to swim, be comfortable in the water & able to cope with occasional currents.
