This was one of the best excursion I have ever been on. Our guided David was very knowledgeable and friendly. He pointed out all kinds of fish and animals. It was amazing to see manta rays, eagle rays, sting rays, eels and even an octopus. The coral garden is beyond words to be able to snorkel through just a vast... More

We stayed at the four seasons in Bora Bora and contacted Pure Snorkeling directly. They were so responsive via email making the entire process incredibly easy. No need to go through your hotel concierge! They picked us up right on time at our doc and we had a great day. We went to several different stops seeing lots of different... More

We had 2 back-to-back amazing experiences with Pure Snorkeling. My husband booked a sunset sail around the island as part of our 25th anniversary celebration. We had a lovely evening, enough information and history about the islands to enjoy what we were seeing, complete with champagne and snacks as our guide chose the perfect spot to watch the sun go...

This was our second trip with Pure Snorkeling in three years. Even though it was a very rainy day, we went out with another couple and our guide--I think his name was Frederick. First stop was snorkeling above humongous manta rays. Second stop an aquarium of tropical fish, third stop an area of beautiful coral gardens and fish, and last... More

WOW!!! doesn't even begin to describe this trip. David, our guide, started off by asking us "What we wanted to see." Then in addition to a lunch served with wine and beer on tables in knee deep water, we made six different snorkel stops, both inside and outside the lagoon. We had said we were interested in seeing coral formations... More

Guiccaume was our French guide who spoke good English and had a great knowledge of the island and its marine life. First took us to spot that 12+ eagle rays were relaxing, then to a coral garden that was magnificent where all kinds of tropical fish and an octopus were spotted. Then off to a spot where we saw one... More

Our guide Reynald was of great fun and knowledge, he had conversation with everyone on boat. He made our tour absolutely unforgetable. He did briefing each time before we go into water regarding what we are gonna see and what to note, and he paid attention to the mediocre swimmer (me, Haha). We really enjoyed the snorkeling tour. We got... More

We enjoyed a fabulous half day of snorkeling with Tuaiva as our guide. Although we had a few reluctant snorkelers in the group, he was patient and helpful and allowed everyone to enjoy the full experience. We made 4 stops and were able to see dolphins, manta rays, eagle rays, a natural aquarium and a coral garden. We appreciated the... More

Our guide, Renald, was the very best, and went out of his way to make sure we had a once in a lifetime experience. We got to see 3 of the very large mantas (9-10 feet across)! I can hardly describe the beauty and gracefulness of these creatures. They were breathtaking! To be able to swim along with them was... More
