Looking for the best snorkeling in Bora Bora?

Snorkeling in Bora Bora Lagoon is my favorite activity. On the beautiful island of Bora Bora some of the most amazing scenery lies beneath the surface of Bora Bora lagoon waiting to be discovered.

The Bora Bora Lagoon is home to hundreds of dazzling tropical fish species. Everything is friendly. So you can relax and frolic as if you're in a huge heated pool.

When I am at Bora Bora I spend every possible moment in, and on, the Bora Bora Lagoon. The clarity of the water, combined with the diverse shades of blue, make the lagoon a snorkeling paradise. Gliding in the calm water, watching the bright, striped and spotted fish dance around the coral below, is pure happiness.

You will spend a large amount of your vacation time at your Bora Bora resort, so if you love snorkeling, you can find out what the snorkeling is like at each Bora Bora resort. You might even want to base your resort choice on the resorts with the best snorkeling!

My Favorite Snorkeling Tahiti

The vanilla island of Tahaa has more of the best Tahiti snorkeling. Here you can do a drift snorkel between two motus. The water is shallow so you are very close to the bright living coral, and the fish swim right up to you.

Instead of having to dive to see this natural beauty, the ocean floor has come up for us to see.

The most amazing Tahiti snorkeling can be found on the distant atoll of Rangiroa. Located far from human activity, the coral is living and colorful. I have snorkeled several times at the side of the pass watching all kinds of marine creatures swim through with the current. The water here is deep and you need to be a confident swimmer. So for those who want a relaxing experience, snorkeling in Bora Bora is as good as it gets.
