Shark & Ray Safari + 1 snorkeling spot in Coral garden
This is our most popular public tour on Bora Bora- a unique experience not to be missed!
Covered boats will transfer you across the lagoon, past Toopua point, to the barrier reef where ideal conditions have encouraged maximum coral growth. Donning a mask and snorkel, you’ll enter waters with varying depths of 4 to 30 feet.
The waters will instantly amaze you with the clarity and vivid blue colors. The diversity of the fish species and colors of the coral are quite fantastic!
After a little while of snorkeling amid these gorgeous coral formations, our guide will begin attracting some black tipped lagoon sharks to the group!
This is indeed a thrilling experience for anybody who’s never seen a shark or large marine creature underwater… but don’t be scared!
At three to five feet in length, these sharks are quite harmless. We’ve been diving with them for many years and never have experienced any problems from them.
The fact is that the sharks of Polynesia all share a scuba-friendly trait: Since their food supplies are abundant, they’ve never been known to be aggressive to any divers!
They are the masters of the lagoon and their power and grace always leave un-erasable memories deeply imprinted in our minds…
Next, it’s time to see the rays! A favorite stop to a shallow sand bank will be made where you’ll see the elegant, yet harmless, grey stingrays living in their natural habitat.
If you want, you may get the chance to touch and feel one of the graceful creatures with the assistance of our guide, as they swim in an effortless “ballet” in and around the swimmers.
