Our family of 5 did the 3.5 hour morning snorkeling trip with Fabien. Our guide, Fabien, was incredibly informative about Bora Bora and French Polynesia in general. We saw amazingly beautiful fish (too numerous to name), manta rays, eagle rays and coral formations. Since I can't dive underwater as deep as Fabien or stay down as long, he was kind... More

This was the best part of our bora bora trip and an amazing excursion. Seeing dolphins, giant manta rays and more fish than I could bbq in a lifetime was incredible. Arthur did a great job as our guide, offering drinks and dry towels that was unexpected but a nice touch.

Having experienced three different snorkelling companies on our trip - this was exceptional! Our guide Arthur was fabulous He catered to all of our varied ages and experience levels. BUT the manta ! The moray eel! The leopard rays !! and the most beautiful array of fish and coral. Please try this company first. Simply the best.

We did a half day snorkelling trip with our guide Arthur, who was excellent. He took us to four different spots which were all quite different and amazing. Some in our group saw a Mantra Ray, I didn't, but it's was an afternoon trip and I understand that the mornings might be better to see them. However we ask saw... More

We had originally booked our Reef Discovery trip for Saturday with our hotel concierge. Sadly, we were never picked up. No problem though, we were rescheduled for the following day. Fabien was our guide and we were most pleased. It was almost a blessing in disguise about our scheduling snafu because we had an amazing trip that day. Our first... More

We did the half day snorkelling trip with Pure Snorkelling just today and my husband and I loved every minute of it! Our guide David was great, he was friendly and really knowledgeable about the environment and the animals/fish we were witnessing. I was over the moon that we managed to see a Manta Ray, as well as eagle spotted... More

This was an experience like no other. Ben was our guide. He is very knowledgeable of the island and the underwater life around it. We have been snorkeling many times before and brought our own masks and snorkel. The equipment Ben had onboard was very good, so if you are looking to safe space (and weight), no need to bring...

I hardly ever give negative reviews, but this experience was the worst snorkeling experience I have ever had, and I have snorkeled around the world - Great Barrier Reef, Hawaii, the Caribbean. The problem was that Tarie, our guide, judged us on our age. He picked us up at the dock at the St. Regis and right away started to... More
