We want to hire a boat from La Plage for multiple days or every day rent it for the day. The 13ft boat. We will be staying on a Motu and not a resort for 4 nights. The boat will be used for anything from snorkeling to getting to the main land. Are there places all around the island to dock the boat even if it costs a fee? What places do you know of that we can dock the boat?
Do you have any other useful recommendations for our situation?
Bora Bora Island Guide's response
You will be able to use the anchor for when you are stopping to snorkel around the lagoon. There are also buoys around the lagoon that boats attach to. They have been put there by local tours for use when they stop in areas of the lagoon. I'm not sure what the proper protocol is and if you can pull up to them. Ask La Plage when you hire from them.
Most of the beaches around Bora Bora are private, with the exception of Matira beach. Unfortunately this means that you can't pull your boat up to just any beautiful beach you see. You can however, anchor your boat nearby.
When you hire from La Plage, they will give you a map which will show you the places you can stop and dock around Bora Bora.
Contact the Bora Bora Yacht Club and the Mai Kai Yacht Club, as you will be able to moor your boat there when visiting the main island.
Enjoy your time in Paradise!
