You can see everything from manta rays gliding through the lagoon to lemon sharks patrolling along the exterior of the reef. You can also go snorkeling to observe the rays, or even admire them from the terrace of your overwater bungalow.
Diving sites in Bora Bora
Bora Bora is also an ideal destination for first-time and inexperienced divers. The lagoon is teeming with a vast variety of flora and fauna, and your diving instructor will take you to the best sites for your level, ensuring that you have a memorable diving experience in French Polynesia.
Anau is the best site for observing manta rays. The site is protected by the diving clubs so the rays don’t feel threatened and will readily swim with you.
The slope in this underwater pass is named after the motu used for localizing it. If you’re looking for thrills, then this is the site for you. Lemon sharks adore these waters, so don’t forget your underwater camera.
This is a superb spot for drift diving. You glide for 40m over a sandbank and a vast field of coral. Colonies of garden eels stick their heads out of the sand to observe your passage. and schools of jackfish swim all around you.
If all this lagoon and ocean is beginning to make you feel seasick, take a break and go for a tour round the island by bike, or e-bike. Stop off regularly to explore some of the sites and take your mask and tuba with you…just in case!
