Make the most of your time on Bora Bora by combining a Jet Ski tour with a shark and stingray boat safari for a full day of the islands most popular attractions. You'll get breathtaking views of the Polynesian paradise as you zoom around on your Jet Ski with an experienced guide. Then refuel with lunch at the iconic Bloody Marys restaurant before cruising around by boat to view sharks, stingrays and a multitude of tropical fish. You can even snorkel with the marine life for an up-close experience of the underwater world.
Start your day with convenient morning pickup from your Bora Bora hotel or meet your tour guide at the Vaitape pier. After a short safety briefing, strap on the provided lifejacket then hop aboard your Jet Ski, riding solo or double, as you prefer.
Follow your guide through the warm turquoise waters while looking at the spectacular scenery and Mt Otemanu, which reaches 2,385 feet (727 meters) at its highest point. During the tour, your guide points out landmarks and shares facts about the island's marine life, culture and history. You also stop briefly at two scenic locations for a swim and a coconut husking demonstration.
After two hours on the Jet Ski, its time for lunch at Bloody Marys. The famous restaurant is known both for its food and its colorful history and atmosphere. Resembling a traditional Tahitian hut, the building features a thatched roof, open walls and kitschy interior with sand floor, tiki torches and seats made from palm trunks. Fresh seafood stars on the menu, with burgers, sandwiches and local specials also offered for lunch.
Appetite satisfied, head back to the water for a 2.5-hour shark and stingray safari. By powerboat, cruise over to a shallow lagoon where your guide jumps in the water to attract black-tip reef sharks with food. You have the choice to watch from the boat or hop in the water and observe close up with the provided snorkel and mask.
After seeing the sharks, go to another spot for a close encounter with stingrays. Your guide shows you how to interact with the gentle rays; if you like, you can get in the water with them. Then continue to your final stop: a colorful coral garden that is perfect for snorkeling. Whether you get in the water or stay dry in the boat, youll get an unforgettable experience of this spectacular underwater world.
At the end of this comprehensive tour, your guide returns you to your hotel.
