What To Expect

After morning pickup from Vaitape Pier or your Bora Bora hotel, start your full-day combo tour with a 4WD safari in an open-sided truck, which easily scales mountain roads to several viewpoints along the way.

A professional guide takes you around the 20-mile (32-km) circumference of the island and stops at East Matira, Faanui Canon, and Amanahune Bay lookouts with postcard-perfect views, including a panorama of the sparkling Bora Bora lagoon. Learn about the military artifacts left behind by US troops after WWII, and discover volcanic rock formations from the island’s ancient caldera.

Observe the production of coconut oil and tie-dye sarongs by local artisans at a crafts workshop, and sample tropical fruits at a small plantation.

After your morning island tour, enjoy a delicious lunch (included) before transferring to your boat for the afternoon cruise portion of your tour. Settle under the sunshade or on the sundeck as your captain navigates to a calm lagoon where you can snorkel in waist-deep water with tame stingrays or simply observe them from the boat if you prefer.

After this up-close experience with the rays, you’re taken to another spot where black-tip reef sharks glide past your vessel. Follow up at a final snorkeling spot over colorful corals teeming with tropical fish. After your search for ‘Nemo’ is over, end your day trip with the return to your Bora Bora hotel.

Fantastic day, all staff were really friendly. Loved swimming with black tip sharks, sting ray, eagle stingrays. Coral garden and fish were fabulous. Lovely meal prepared. The afternoon 4WD trip was interesting to see the true Bora Bora and learn about culture, our guide Manea went above and beyond for us and even serenaded us. It was lovely

Beautiful and fun experience
Tani_I, Sept 2023
Excellent tour and service. We were picked up from our accomodation dock. The guides were very friendly, funny, accomodating and provided a safe and comfortable environment. We snorkelled at 3 beautiful locations and seen fish, sharks and stingrays. We also saw a turtle and dolphins from the boat. We stopped at a beautiful motu for a delicious lunch prepared by a local family. Then it was onto our 4wd tour with a very knowledgeable Manu who provided so much history on the island. He is truly passionate about the island, his culture and people which was very refreshing. All in all we had a lot of fun on this tour and would 100% recommend.
Nice tour

The first point where we shnorkeled with was beautiful. The 4x4 was also good, it is the only way to reach by vehicle those summits.
Aurore_D, May 2023
Amazing, every part of it I loved. The boat, the food, the table in the water for lunch, the activities the 4x4 and the views just wwaaaooouuuhhhh. Recommended 1000%.
Fun, Adventurous, and Memorable
Shane_R, Apr 2023
Wow! My wife and I had so much fun on this tour. We thoroughly enjoyed the snorkeling with sharks, sting rays, and the abundant fish. The lunch on a private motu sitting on picnic table huts in the shallow part of the beach with amazing views was truly memorable. The food was excellent! The tour guides for the boat portion (Manu and Sky) were all relational, helpful, funny, and kind. We enjoyed Sky playing his ukulele and singing on the boat. The tour guide for the 4x4 was also kind and informative. If you want an experience that covers many of Bora Bora’s highlights, sights, sounds, and the sea then book this tour. Two thumbs way up! Thank you!
Fun and exhausting day!
Robert_B, Apr 2023
Fun day with this tour! Our guides were friendly and knowledgeable. Only change would have been to do 4x4 in the morning and snorkeling in the afternoon as been better for us.
Great trip in Bora Bora
Sue_B, Apr 2023
Great snorkelling with a fun and knowledgeable guide. Lovely lunch over the water, interesting land tour and a very well organised trip. Well worth it!
A must tour while in Bora Bora

This is an excellent tour. The cruise around the lagoon provided us with views from the water to the shore & learning about all the interesting sites & history. We then went snorkeling to 3 different locations. The guide was very professional & explained how to safely snorkel with all the sea life in a very understandable & humorous way. He kept a watchful eye on everyone in the water to make sure they were safe. He & the boat driver made this a memorable & unforgettable experience. We then were taken to have an fantastic lunch. Next we went to 3 mountain tops with amazing views, where we learned about the Polynesian history, customs, & language. This is a must do tour. You really get your money's worth.
Well worth it!

We stayed at the IC Thalasso so we took our hotel shuttle (fee for it) to IC Le Moana and met Manu at the lobby for a quick van ride to the dock near Bloody Mary's and met up with Chris and his boat. Then off to Viatape to pick up more guests then to the Conrad and the Pearl to get more guests. In total we had 10 people on the tour, so it felt very personal as opposed to the tours in the Caribbean where you have 40+ people on the tour. Our first stop was to see the manta rays, then off to the sting rays and sharks, then to the coral garden, and then to see the eagle ray. Then we went to the motu for lunch which was very good (some guests even said it was better than their dinner the night before at the Conrad). We booked the combo tour so after lunch it was back to the main island where Chris made sure we met up with Manu's brother, Manu (yes, both Manu but their full names are longer lol) for the land tour. This was even more intimate as it was just us and another couple. We explored the main island and Manu took us up some steep terrain for some beautiful views of Bora Bora and of the surrounding motus. Along the way Manu stopped to explain various things - how the thatched roofs are made using leaves from the trees, how the coconut trees are called "trees of life." I didn't know there was so many ways the tree and the fruit are useful! Coconut oil, coconut milk, coconut water, leaves for the roof, the roots for stomach aches, fibers from the coconuts made into string. Amazing! We would definitely recommend this tour. It was a great combination of sea and land. Manu, Chris, and Manu were great and very knowledgeable and we highly recommend!
Wonderful experience

Best day ever!
MICHAEL_A, Jan 2023
it was a rainy day , but we still had a great time swimming with Sharks and sting rays. We had one of the best Polynesian meals o our trip at lunch. With so much high end word class menu options on the resort it was a pleasant surprise to get a “home cooked mesl “. The sea crew were very helpful and empathetic to anyone with fears of water and sharks . Manea was our 4x4 guide. He was Awesome as well andblew us away with the education and history he gave us of Bora Bora and the French .Polynesian islands. We highly recommend this tour.
Enjoy the tour
Andy_T, Dec 2022
We had a great time under the sea in the morning, good lunch, and great view in the main island. Boat picked us up from Conred, and heading to spot for swimming with sharks and rays. Second stop for watching Manta Ray, and the reef garden for various pretty fishes and coral. Lunch at the family own beach with taste chicken, rice, coconut bread, papaya, and mango. We were picked up at one port and on 4x4 truck for the road trip. We stopped at 3 high view points for the different bora bora views. It’s a good full day tour.
Fun in the Lagoon and the mountains
Terry_L, Dec 2022
We had a great time on the 4WD and snorkeling tour. Our guides were so funny, they had us laughing the entire time. The lunch provided was outstanding. Snorkeling was so fun. The fish were beautiful, swimming with the sharks was amazing as well as petting the stingrays. The highlight was seeing the Manta Ray. Our guides were very good at making sure we saw what makes Bora Bora a wonderful place to visit.
Bora Bora day trip experience

We organised our day trip with Vavau 4x4 adventures. It was a great experience and the hospitality by Manu and his brother was fantastic. Highly recommended for organising your day trip
Brilliant day in paradise!
Pam_N, Nov 2022
Fantastic day - great swimming with sharks & rays - beautiful snorkeling in coral gardens. Manu was a fantastic host & guide & his brother also Manu in the afternoon was brilliant & knowledgeable during the 4wd adventure. Well worth it!
Great overall Excursion
Alan_R, Nov 2022
Lagoon tour with snorkeling went out of their way to make sure we got to see Manta Rays, Sting Rays, Sharks, and even searched for quite some time to find a large group of eagle rays. Island lunch was delicious. The 4x4 tour was a wonderful way to see the entire island and also some historical sites as well.
Bora full day Lagoon and 4wd tour.
Kim_S, Nov 2022
Different colors od the Lagoon. Snorkeling was great only dissapoint not able to see Whales closeby. Overall it was great and guides are great and wonderful . The lunch was nice on the beach. Will recommend this company to our future clients.
Great day out!
Rmon_T, Oct 2022
Unbelievable experience in water and land! Swimming closely with Black Tip Reef sharks and sting rays. Later a full tour around the island by land with amazing views.
A fun time with lots of sharks and sting rays.
Kevin_B, June 2022
We had a great time. The boat portion with the snorkeling was great fun. Tahito(?) our boat guide did an excellent job. There were a great many sharks and sting rays at the on snorkel stop and many colorful fish and the other. The lunch on the Mora was tasty. Our 4-wheel drive guide, Mata'i, was also very good. He did a good job driving and giving us a narrative about the island. The Sarong making was interesting as well. In all, it was a very good excursion that we would recommend.
A memorable day offering great insights into the sea and land life
DrReto_C, May 2022
View of sharks, stingrays, and corals in the lagoon; lunch on a small island with the opportunity to talk with locals; a grand tour of the main island on a 4WD led by Mr. H, born and raised on the island: very knowledgeable, amiable, careful driver, offering insights into the local lifestyle
Made our trip in Bora Bora!
Keval_M, May 2022
Had an amazing time on the snorkeling adventure and 4WD tour. The guides were funny, gracious, accommodating, and very informative. Highly recommend.
