What people are saying about Bora Bora

we were picked up directly from the hotel... After an exciting speedboat ride, we got to the catamaran. Here we were greeted friendly and could choose one of the 4 places. It was great sailing weather with good wind. Unfortunately not for snorkeling, so we had to do without it, which was annoying, of course. There was no offer for a voucher. But there was a stop to get a drink in the shallow water at the Floating Bar (a small tray), chips, grapes and a coconut... The rum punch was delicious. The event lasted about 2.5 hours. Host were then taken directly to the hotel with the speedboat. I even forgot my GoPro, which was then brought to me... Great!!!

Ta'iva (not sure if the spelling is correct) was a phenomenal host! I can't say enough about his hospitality, knowledge of the island, and willingness to accommodate our wishes. I had forgotten my GoPro and he took us back to the resort to pick it up, and then we proceeded to a feeding station near the resort where I was able to film a Manta Ray. I will refer your company and Ta'iva to all my friends. Warm Regards, Hans Gevelhoff

My husband and I had an amazing time! Even with the weather being less than ideal (raining), our guide made sure we had a great time! We swam with sharks, sting rays, and lots of other fish at the coral gardens. One of the highlights of our trip!

Excellent service in a private boat with lunch consistent with the photo;) A surprise: a bottle of champagne! Our guide was professional and caring.

Very good experience for snorkeling on 20 meter sea to chase the menta. Trusted captain make a safe tour!!!
