    Bora-Bora Sports & Outdoors

    We had a great experience with Topdive Bathys in Bora Bora. We did a two-tank dive that was only our second and third dives since being certified. The staff picked us up at our hotel and drove us to Vaitape where their main office is located. We got gear from them then got out on the boat and headed out. Our first dive with near Motu Tapu just past...

  • Snorkeling

    Bora-Bora Sports & Outdoors

    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.

  • Snorkeling and Diving

    It was the first time i snorkeled in tropical waters (in Raiatea a local teacher invited me to snorkel with him, i didn´t see dive shops then, but they are around today), i was stunned and never stopped looking for tropical dive and snorkel spots since.

  • Spearing coconuts

    Whilst we were at the Museum of Tahiti and her Islands, I spotted some tall metal poles with coconuts on top. After visiting the museum, I asked one of the security guards there what they were for.He had difficulty explaining in English to me, and told me to follow him. He went to a back room, and picked up this long thin spear thing and said you...

  • Borrow/Rent an outrigger canoe

    These outrigger canoes are great fun to paddle about in. If you have ever been in a single scull (to the uninitiated, it is a very thin 'rowing' boat for just one person), this will feel very stable. On the other hand, if you haven't, you will have a good chance of turning one of these over!If you don't have experience, make sure you don't take any...

  • Canoeing in French Polynesia

    Once you had paid to visit the Lagoonarium on Moorea, it was free to use most of the facilities there. This made it incredibly good value in French Polynesia, where everything seems to be at rip-off prices.These boats are very easy to steer and hard to capsize and great fun. But be careful you don't burn too much. I appear to be wearing a lot of...

  • Scuba Diving

    The clear tropical waters of French Polynesia are ideal for year-round diving. You can choose between diving in the lagoons, passes and outer coral reefs. The underwater scenery is different from island to island, but magnificent on every spot. The average water temperature is 29°C (85°F) during the summer months of November to March and 25°C...

  • Excursion by outrigger canoe

    Make a boat trip around the island in a typical outrigger canoe. Most of the time you will do some snorkeling in the coral garden, visit a motu for some picnic and relaxing on the white sand beach, and search for the graceful manta ray. When you are lucky, you can enjoy some typical Tahitian songs played on the ukelele.

  • Jet-ski excursion

    You can rent a jet ski for 2 or 3 hours. Guides will take you around the island inside the lagoon. You will stop on a motu, snorkel in beautiful coral gardens, feed the fish, and if you are lucky dive with the sharks and stingrays.

  • Snorkeling in the lagoon

    With only a mask, fins and a snorkel you can discover the wonderful underwater world of the islands. Most fishes and other marine life are found between 1 and 3 meters deep. Just don't touch the coral reefs.
