Once you’ve made it to the Island and depending on your level of activity, a Bora Bora lagoon tours are an excellent way to see all the major sites of the island. Some tour operators run half-day or full day excursions such as the shark and ray feeding and often include a boat tour of the lagoon as part of the package. It’s a simple loop around the main island which takes roughly an hour to complete.
From the lagoon boat tour, you can see many of the other resorts on the island and also see many of the smaller motus that makes up Bora Bora. Historic items such as the World War II cannons are pointed out and seeing Mount Otemanu from different angles is also nice. Don’t be surprised if you see reef sharks in the water along the way as the marine life is very abundant.
Contact your hotel reception to book a reservation on one of many Bora Bora lagoon tours by boat otherwise, verify that a lagoon tour is included in one of the activity packages that you may have already signed up for. We reccomend cruising the lagoon.
Quick Tip – Bring sunscreen and water with you on the lagoon tour. The lagoon water does get a little choppy with the wind, so if you get sea sick easily be sure to take something for it.
Quick Tip – There are sail boats operated by private companies that troll by the hotels with “Rent Me” signs, so there is an opportunity to do a spontaneous boat tour or sunset cruise.
