Information on Bora Bora snorkeling

Bora Bora's calm, clear lagoon is perfect for snorkeling. In the lagoon you can see bright tropical fish, gray rays, spotted eagle rays and manta rays, black tipped reef sharks and sea turtles. The most popular snorkeling spot is 'the Aquarium'. There are some areas in the lagoon where coral flourishes. Many of these sites require a boat to get to, so snorkeling island tours or boat hire is essential to get to the best snorkeling in Bora Bora. If you want to snorkel straight from your Bora Bora resort's beach, you can, just choose one that has coral. Here is more information on Bora Bora snorkeling.

Information on Bora Bora Dive Sites

There are dive sites within Bora Bora's sheltered lagoon. Plus drift dives can be taken through the island's Teavanui pass (the entrance from the ocean to the lagoon). There are also about 4 outer-reef dive sites in the Pacific Ocean. Highlights of diving in Bora Bora are turtles, lemon sharks, black-tipped sharks and manta rays. On outer reef and pass dives you can see larger marine animals, including shark varieties and dolphins. If you've never dived before, the warm turquoise water and abundance of sea life make this the perfect place to learn. Beginner divers are taken to a favorite snorkeling spot, affectionately titled 'the Aquarium'.
