Explore the island paradise of Bora Bora during this scenic orientation tour via Le Truck.
Depart the pier aboard a Le Truck for a tour around this island paradise. First, you will drive through the district of Fa'anui. Along the way, you will pass by small villages and fields that offer a glimpse into the everyday life of the people of Bora Bora. A brief stop will be made at Fa'anui Bay for photographs of Mounts Otemanu and Pahia. Your drive will continue on to the ancient ceremonial site of Fa'anui Marae, followed by a look at the bunkers constructed by American GIs during World War II.
Next, a stop will be made at Mama Ruta where you will have an opportunity to perhaps sample some local delicacies such as breadfruit, poe mixed with coconut milk (not marinated), taro and tropical fruit. You will also have a chance to see the ways a pareu can be wrapped and then buy one or two hand-painted local pareus as a souvenir. From a lookout point, you will see Mount Otemanu, Bora Bora's highest peak, which stands as a silent sentinel over the Pearl of the Pacific.
Continuing on, you will pass by some of Bora Bora's famous resorts before reaching sandy Matira Beach. A stop will be made here to take in splendid vistas and photo opportunities before driving back to the pier.
Please note: There is minimal walking on this tour, mainly at the guests' discretion during the stops. Le Truck is a casual, open-air vehicle resembling a windowless bus. Due to road conditions in some areas of the island, you should be prepared for a bumpy ride during part of the tour. There is no wheelchair storage available on the Truck so wheelchairs and walkers would be held on the pier. Light-weight clothing; sun caps; sunglasses; sunscreen; insectant repellent; a bottle of water from the ship; and flat, comfortable walking shoes are recommended. While every effort is made to follow the published tour timing, durations are approximate and are dependent on group interest and traffic/road conditions. The stop at Matira Beach is dependent on parking availability. The order of the sites viewed or visited may vary.
