We were really lucky to have booked our excursion on a Saturday since Arthur only works there on the weekends. I felt like we got some extra interesting facts since he is a marine biologist who works with coral all over Bora Bora.
We stopped in four locations- to see manta rays, eagle rays, the coral garden, and “the aquarium.” It’s really tough to say which was our favorite because each was so amazing. The manta rays are enormous and truly amazing to be in the presence of. Swimming over top a group of eagle rays is pretty special. The coral garden is literally like a Windows screensaver, and “the aquarium” has an absolutely incredible number of fish swimming around you at all times and a “friendly” morey eel. If you have a GoPro or a camera that you bring, I’d say leave a little extra battery for the coral garden and the aquarium.
I think if we had done this earlier in our trip, my wife and I probably would have booked it a second time. This is something that everyone who goes to Bora Bora should do. We did not do the shark and ray feeding but a lot of people we spoke to really enjoyed that as well.
It’s probably also worth noting that the water in the lagoon is super salty, which makes floating and snorkeling really easy. We had a couple in our group that were not the most confident swimmers and they seemed to have a great and fairly easy time.
