After pickup at your hotel or at the Vaitape pier, board your boat for your 6-hour small-group snorkel cruise. You’ll enjoy a customized experience of this incredible island and its outstanding marine life.
Set off on the first part of your 26-mile (42-kilometer) cruise around the island, heading to shallow waters where you can see blacktip reef sharks and stingrays. Once your guide hops into the water to show you how to interact with the gentle creatures, you have the option to join your guide in the water. Swim with the tame stingrays and sharks if you like, or stay dry and observe the action from the boat.
Next, explore this tropical paradise further by snorkeling at pristine locations with colorful coral gardens and multitudes of fish. If you are new to snorkeling, your guide can assist you to feel comfortable in the water.
Continue to a lovely motu with great views of Mt Otemanu, the tallest point on Bora Bora at 2,385 feet (727 meters). Have time to snorkel and swim in calm, clear waters or relax on the white-sand beach while your guide prepares a delicious picnic lunch.
When ready, eat at a shaded table on the beach. Savor the tasty Polynesian-style barbecue picnic, which may include grilled fish, chicken and beef, along with salads and other dishes. Your guide explains how to cook these local favorites and shares other cultural and historical facts.
At the end of your memorable 6-hour cruise, your guide returns you to your starting point.
