Bora Bora Snorkel, Shark and Ray Feeding Excursion
Reviewed by: Robert L, United States of America, March 2015
Sam was quite the guide. In an open boat, 12 passengers went first to a location beyond the reef to swim with the sharks.The sea was quite rough, so only the hardy members of the excursion got in the water. Sharks were plentiful. From there we went to a location where we all got in the water with the sting rays. They were also plentiful and attracted to our boat driver and all of us. Finally, we went to the coral garden for snorkeling. The currents were quite strong and the snorkelers needed to pay attention to where the boat was so as not to drift off. We were there on a cloudy day, so did not really get the full benefit of what was there to see but still worth the trip. All in all a very wonderful day full of new experiences.

This is absolutely amazing, the tour has 3 stops.
1st is on a Coral packed with fishes, you can even find Nemo.
2ns is feeding stingrays, they are docile, huge and they do love humans.
3rd is the Sharks, this is a life experience, we were swimming in a sea with 20+ sharks, from 1 to 2,5 meters long, this is a life's experience, I'd advise everyone to to this.
Not to mention the guide was amazing and playing local songs on his ukulele all along the way.

This is probably my favorite excursion to date. We made three stops, all were different, and enthralling. We got lotsa pictures of Manta's and Sharks, and felt very safe. While the price you offer beats the pants off of the cruise ship prices, the real value is how nice and friendly your tour operators. Mahalo (as they say in Hawaii). Frank Honolulu.......

Awesome experience! Just as advertised, we snorkeled in a shallow bay (30ft depth), spend another 30 minutes watching and touching the rays as the tour guide directed them around us with bait fish, and spent another 30 minutes snorkeling in reef shark infested waters outside of the reef. We were lucky enough to see a dolphins as well as a lemon shark. Weather wasn't the best, but we had a great time. They also brought along a professional photographer so you could spend more time taking in the sights and less time worried about pictures

Excellent trip. Went to the same places that Oceania's tour went for half the price.

Outstanding, once in a lifetime experience. The guys, Ty and Leroy, were excellent guides and even played ukelele while we swam with the sharks and rays. Our afternoon trip was made even more enjoyable by the fact that we were the only couple on the boat, making for a private trip with our own personalized guides.

This was an amazing tour. The snorkelling was great and swimming with the sharks is something I'll never forget. The only downside was the tour was cut a bit short (it didn't go the full three hours) and I would have liked to have spent even more time in the water! Also, some people on the boat had purchased their tickets much cheaper by just buying them at the dock. But that said, we were glad we were already organised through Viator so we didn't have to stress about finding a decent tour.
