Where else could you get a boat tour that lets you view the colorful coral and beautiful tropical fish just by looking down? Taking the Bora Bora Glass Bottom Boat Tour is a relaxing yet unique experience to take with your loved one. Sit on a comfortable covered boat and glide over the rich marine life below you that you can glance at through the glass floor of the boat. The boat tour guide will fill you in on the history and legends of Bora Bora’s famous lagoon. The tour is approximately an hour and a half and operates Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
Are you and your loved one nature lovers who are looking for a unique chance to view native wildlife during your honeymoon? Make your way across the lagoon to a tiny islet called Bird Island, a bird watcher’s paradise, as your tour guide tells you about the many unique avian species as you view them in their natural habitat. The Bird Island Excursion tour requires at least four people to operate and can be accessed on Tikehau.
Let yourself relax on a semi-private romantic Sunset Cruise and Dinner at St. James on Bora Bora. Sip champagne, take in the scenic views and then enjoy a romantic dinner in Vaitape at one of Bora Bora’s highest rated restaurants. This two hour sunset cruise on Bora Bora’s lagoon sits a maximum of five other couples, but private tours are available upon request. This tour operates Monday, Wednesdays and Fridays.
What is more romantic that a sunset cruise in Bora Bora? The Loveboat, a private sunset lover’s cruise in Bora Bora, is perfect for honeymooners. As you ride across the beautiful turquoise lagoon, you can indulge yourselves in complimentary champagne served in a fresh coconut and will be able to take up 100 professional photos of you and your loved one. This sunset cruise is an hour and a half and operates every day, weather permitting.
This romantic cruise fits only six couples and takes you on an intimate tour of Bora Bora for six hours. The length of this tour is longer than others because during it, you have the chance to swim in the clear waters, snorkel in coral gardens, and encounter the tropical fish that live there. Also included is a lunch where each couple will be served at their own private table, complimented with a stunning view of Mount Otemnu. Private tours are available upon request. This tour operates every day except for Sunday.
