The 10 Best Private Tours in Bora Bora, Society Islands

May 22, 2022 Weston Hennigan

Turquoise lagoons, soft white sands, and deep tangerine sunsets set the scene for romance on the island so nice they named it twice. Mingle with tropical fish as you flutter around Coral Gardens or Tupitipiti Point, or relax in a self-driving tour as you take in beautiful views of the once-volcanic Mount Otemanu. At the Lagoonarium you can watch shark feedings and swim with turtles. Cap it all off with a succulent meal at one of the island’s fine French restaurants, then sip a tropical cocktail under the stars.

If you are interested in transportation from one resort to another or to town, the lady pearl is a very comfortable option. The captain is very customer service friendly and knowledgeable. He has lived in Borabora for a long time so it is interesting learning about the various resorts and history. The lady pearl is not an inexpensive option but we really enjoyed our travels with it and would happily recommend using it.

David & Aimee were so amazing. They made the whole process of booking the dive super easy. David was right on time on the day of the dive and helped us through everything. I was a little nervous and he helped me throughout the dive. We went to the most beautiful reef and we saw so much coral and sea life, we even saw a turtle. David took lots of pictures of us during the dive. Thank you for an amazing experience!!!

Allan and Arthur were a great sailing team on our trip. Their knowledge of the marine life and sharing their perspectives on local Tahitian culture was very interesting. It was windy on our day so the sailing was fast. The floating bar with rum punch was delicious and was a nice way to cap off the excursion. The snorkeling area was beautiful but the water depth was a little shallow (which made maneuvering around the coral sometimes difficult). Having great hosts and beautiful, smooth ride around the lagoon made this a very memorable experience for our group. Would recommend booking this tour!

Alexis was wonderful and helped transport us from our dock to St.Regis resort for our overeager bungalow evening. We tendered in from our Windstar cruise, he picked us up (we arrived early and he was already there waiting), and he gave us local info as we took the trip to the other side of the island. When we come back, we’ll use him for snorkel trips to see manta rays. He’s very professional with a casual attitude. 10/10.
