On this Ensemble Experience you’ll discover the beauty of the ever-changing colors of Bora Bora’s lagoon on a covered snorkeling boat or motorized outrigger canoe.
Departing from the pier, you’ll cruise past the ancient rim of Motu Toopua, and by the famous Motu Tapu, to drop anchor on a shallow sand bank. (Motu means island in Tahitian.) Here you’ll discover the undul-ating elegance of the harmless stingrays. While your experienced guide hand feeds them you’ll be amazed as they glide effortlessly around you.
After this peaceful play with the rays, you’ll cruise through crystal-clear waters to the next stop outside the lagoon where you can swim among black-tipped sharks.
While it is usually safe to swim or snorkel here and a guaranteed thrilling experience, you won’t miss the show if you stay in the boat. The sharks can be seen from a safe and dry perch on the boat if you’re not comfortable getting into the water with them.
You’ll then motor to your next stop at a coral garden. Beautiful multi-colored fish such as the parrot fish, butterfly fish and trigger fish will be swimming over the reef. While you can see them from the boat, you’ll be able to snorkel in depths ranging from 4 to 5 feet with the chance to admire the tropical fish, just as if you were in an aquarium. You can relax and admire the natural beauty of the unspoiled marine life that surrounds you.
Finally, your guides will arrange a stop to rehydrate with fresh fruits, water, juice and soft drinks. After, you’ll return to the pier.
As with all creatures in their natural environ-ment, we cannot guarantee their presence. For you own safety and to help preserve the environment, when snorkeling, do not touch or step on the coral reef.
