Our guide Fabien took my wife and I put for a half day trip; the weather wasn’t great and it was a little rough. Fabien was an excellent captain and we saw EVERYTHING we wanted to including FOUR giant manta rays that I snorkeled with for over 20 minutes. It was an experience I will never forget and so so amazing. THANK YOU FABIEN!!!!

I booked a private half day snorkeling tour for my wife and I and Fabien was our guide and Captain. Fabien was extremely knowledgeable of the reefs and sea life and snorkeled with us wherever we went. At one particular snorkel location we saw more fish then we had seen anywhere else in the world! As soon as we got in the water we were simply surrounded by hundreds and hundreds of gorgeous tropical life! We saw Fabien playing with a 6’ moray eel! Thats twice as big as any other one Id ever seen! Bora Bora’s reefs are unbelievable! It was nice having a skilled guide and a fast boat available to experience them! Highly recommend.

We booked a private boat for morning snorkeling. Reef Discovery is a very well run organization, including responding to inquiries and booking online. “Arrow” was our captain. He was excellent. He brought us to four unique locations around the island. We both saw and learned a lot. He made the excursion a lot of fun. The boat was very good, allowing us to quickly move around the island. We couldn’t have asked for a better morning. We also booked a private boat with Moana Adventure Tours. They were equally good.

This was really a highlight of our trip to Bora Bora. We were picked up at our resort in a very nice speed boat. We were provided with towels, drinks and snorkeling gear. The boat had seating in both the shade and sun. Our first stop was snorkeling with Manta Rays. We managed to see multiple Rays and our guide Vehi took some photos of the Rays and us with our GoPro. You should definitely bring a waterproof camera. We continued to circle the island stopping at various spots to discover the reefs and various fish. We managed to also see Black Tip Reef Sharks, Eagle Rays, Sting Rays, Moray Eel and multiple other species. Make sure you put on a lot of sunscreen even if it is cloudy as you will burn otherwise.
