Explore the exquisite beauty and undersea denizens of Bora Bora's lagoon during this shark and stingray snorkeling safari aboard a covered snorkeling boat.

Setting off from the pier, you'll head toward the ancient crater rim of Motu Toopua. Dropping anchor on a shallow sandbank, you'll have the opportunity to discover first-hand the elegant, yet harmless stingrays. Watch in delighted amazement as your guide hand feeds the stingrays while they glide effortlessly around you. If you are willing, your guide will even help you get close enough to touch them. There is also a good chance you will see some harmless black tip sharks in the lagoon as well, so keep an eye out for them.

Next, you will continue on for a visit to a pristine coral garden. Upon arrival, you will receive a safety briefing and snorkeling instructions before entering the water. As you snorkel in depths ranging from 4-5 feet, you'll be treated to an abundance of tropical and multi-colored fish, including parrotfish and butterfly fish. At the conclusion of your snorkeling session, you will climb back aboard your boat and cruise back to the pier.

Please note: This tour is recommended for guests in good physical condition and who are good swimmers. It will be necessary to negotiate a ladder to enter and exit the water from the boat. The tour is not available to wheelchair guests or those with mobility concerns. Guests must be comfortable wearing the snorkeling equipment provided, being in deep water as depths cannot be guaranteed, and able to cope with occasional currents. Mask and snorkel are provided however fins are not. The snorkeling locations selected may vary dependent upon sea conditions and visibility. Swimwear worn under a cover-up; sun cap; sunglasses; biodegradable sunscreen; towel; and flat comfortable shoes or aquasocks are recommended. Guests are cautioned not to touch or step on the coral reef for both safety and environmental reasons. While it is likely you will see marine life, the prescence of any type of wildlife is never guaranteed and tickets will not be refunded should a sighting not occur. Those participating in any water activities do so at their own risk and responsibility.
