Looking for adventure in Bora Bora? Look no further than Moana Adventure Tours!
Warning: this post is picture heavy, but I assure you, it’s worth it!
Our day with Moana Adventure Tours held the perfect amount of excitement and thrill, and all in a completely calm and picturesque setting. It’s in part what makes Bora Bora so amazing. You can choose to relax in your overwater bungalow, bask in the sun, and get lost in the shades of turquoise and blue, but if you want adventure they have that too. Like feeling the rush of hot air as you fly over the crystal clear waters on a jet ski.
With Moana Adventure Tours’ luxurious cap camarat boat, visitors sail around Bora Bora’s enchanting lagoon in private. With stops to jump off and explore the coral gardens, with its excess of bright fish, and again to swim in shallow waters with sharks and eagle rays. Then, hop back onboard and head out of Bora Bora’s calm lagoon and into the deep waters of the ocean to swim with 6′ lemon sharks. It’s so amazing. Watch as all the large boats, packed with people, arrive in the distance while you’re alone with your significant other (and wonderful guide, of course), in a truly relaxing atmosphere.
Here are the details from our day…
Moana Adventure Tours picked us up right at our hotel’s dock, making our day of adventure first and foremost, easy.
From there, we sailed around the lagoon until we reached Bora Bora’s coral gardens. I was in love with our view from our resort and bungalows. Then we ventured out and saw MORE of this beautiful island, and WOW.
We arrived at the coral gardens, and there were a number of other tours there. I LOVED being the only ones on our tour. We could do whatever we wanted, and our guide was truly spectacular.
We left the coral gardens just as the huge crowds started to arrive. Next, we headed to a different spot in the lagoon to swim with eagle rays and sharks.
Once again, we left just as the big tours arrived.
So next, we set out past the reefs that make Bora Bora’s lagoon so peaceful and calm, and into the ocean.
Once we were in open waters and found our spot, our guide pointed out these massive 6′ lemon sharks below. My jaw literally dropped when he told us we were going to get in the water with them!
After that we headed back to the island. The boat dropped us off and we walked to the famous Bloody Mary’s, an all sand-floored restaurant in Vaitape that serves burgers and fries.
After lunch, our day wasn’t over just yet!
Next, we’re jet skiing!
I have to admit, I was little terrified. I went jet skiing once in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina YEARS ago, and I swore never again.
So for this afternoon adventure we had a different guide than our morning one. He definitely made safety a top priority, and I never once felt unsafe. Except for the fact that I thought I would flip/fall/be lost in the waters forever, which wasn’t his fault, but my own fears getting the best of me. He made us well prepared in the event that if one of us did fall off, we’d be safe. I should note neither of us ever did. We thankfully both remained firmly planted on our jet ski.
So the route was to jet ski around the entire island, and for those who are scared, like myself, Bora Bora makes the perfect jet skiing destination, because the lagoon is SO CALM.
We got to see all the different shades of blue, from the dark deep waters to the most shallow, clear, and mesmerizing turquoise.
I drove for a little bit, but I ended up going TOO slow, so we had to switch. I basically held on for dear life, thankful for my GoPro so I could close my eyes and watch the video later – ha!
I loved when we parked our jet ski and were able to jumped right in!
There was one part where we stopped and swam to a little island. Then, we were lead to a small hut where our guide taught us how to crack a coconut and extract the milk!
Afterwards, we continued our course around the entire island until we made the full circle. It was such a unique way to see all of Bora Bora!
We received a discount for review purposes, however, my love for adventure and unbelievably crystal clear blue waters comes naturally. Our day with Moana Adventure Tours was truly spectacular and very worth it. Thank you so much, Moana Adventure Tours, for a truly wonderful day!
