A Bora Bora sunset cruise is the perfect evening activity for romancing your partner out on the Bora Bora lagoon. There are a variety of sunset cruise options to choose from - in a speed boat, outrigger canoe, or catamaran - in a private or group setting - with or without a stop for dinner.
A Bora Bora sunset cruise makes our list of 'Top 5 Romantic Things To Do in Bora Bora'.
As a sunset cruise in Bora Bora is a once in a lifetime, romantic experience, you'll want it to be as intimate as possible. You have the option of booking a private sunset cruise or a small group sunset cruise. As the best Bora Bora sunset cruises take limited numbers, they do sell out. If you are traveling to Bora Bora for a romantic occasion with your lover, make sure you book one of these sunset cruises before your vacation.
A private sunset cruise allows you and your lover to have a boat with captain all to yourselves. Your captain will take you to the sunset side of the island and pop a bottle of champagne for you to celebrate the ending of a beautiful day in paradise. A Private Bora Bora sunset cruise will cost between $500-$900, depending on the boat type, tour provider and length of cruise. A Bora Bora sunset cruise usually lasts for 2 hours. Some private sunset cruise operators will also offer a dinner option on a private motu. A private sunset cruise with dinner will be a 3-4 hour excursion and cost $1000+ per couple.
Taking a sunset cruise in a small group setting allows you to enjoy a Bora Bora sunset for much less cost. A group sunset Bora Bora cruise will include champagne, snacks and sometimes even dinner, all for around $200 a person. Here are the small group sunset cruises that we recommend.
The most peaceful way to cruise Bora Bora at sunset is on a sailing catamaran. There are very limited places (only 4 couples per trip) and so books out weeks ahead. Sailing Bora Bora lagoon is one of the top things to do in Bora Bora, so if you don't book the half-day floating bar experience, take the Bora Bora sunset catamaran sail.
On our most recent trip my fiance and I booked the Bora Bora cruise that includes dinner at St James, which is one of Bora Bora's best restaurants. We took to the lagoon in a beautiful outrigger canoe with 3 other couples and found the excursion to be quite private, with only a little socializing, as we all watched the colorful sunset, while enjoying champagne and snacks. The other couples on the boat were newlyweds on their honeymoon. When we were dropped off at the dock of the restaurant we all had private tables along-side the lagoon. This was our favorite dinner in Bora Bora.
Here are the group tour sunset experiences that we recommend because they provide a wonderful experience and offer good value. Both tours have limited spaces, and require booking ahead of time to ensure you wont miss out on these Bora Bora experiences.
