With only a mask, fins and a snorkel you can discover the wonderful underwater world of Bora Bora. Most fishes and other marine life are found between 1 and 3 meters deep. Just don't touch the coral reefs.
Even if you are not a very good swimmer (which I am not), you cannot help but want to jump in the water here!! The fish call out to you (not really, but you know what I mean). I snorkeled as much as I could, mostly from our overwater bungalow, where the water was about 30 feet deep. It is very addictive, especially when you get to know the fish which live near you!
Equipment: I preferred to bring my own mask and fins, it was just easier.
