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.
