Customer Reviews for Motu Islet Lagoon Cruise & Beach Break

Motu Islet Lagoon Cruise & Beach Break

Enjoy Bora Bora’s magical lagoon on board a covered boat. You’ll cruise from Vaitape Bay, past beautiful Raititi Point and enchanting islets of Motu Toopua and Motu Tapu. You will enjoy some great views on the crystal clear lagoon as well as some exclusive sights of the island’s highest peak, Mount Otemanu. Reach the motu (coral islet) for a typical island beach break. Stop for about 90 minutes on one of the atolls for sunbathing and swimming in crystal clear water and enjoying refreshments. This relaxing trip is also a great opportunity for souvenir photos, as it offers some superb views of the hidden, eastern side of Bora Bora. This tour combines lagoon navigation, snorkeling and free time on the beach—a great way to enjoy your day on Bora Bora.Notes:There are some stairs involved. While the motu area used is privately rented, guests are not entitled to venture outside of the property limits. For your own safety and to preserve the environment, do not touch or step on coral when snorkeling. Itinerary and stops may be reduced or altered dependent upon weather conditions. Participants should know how to swim. Wear your swimsuit under your clothing as well as aqua shoes, biodegradable sunscreen, a hat, mosquito repellent, and a rash guard or t-shirt; bring a towel. Swimming at the motu is done from a specific location to ensure proper supervision by the staff as currents may be encountered. Snorkeling from the motu is limited due to shallow water; a snorkel stop at another location takes place during the tour.

This is a great excursion and I highly recommend it! On our way to the motu in the covered boat (we sat up top in the sun!) we stopped in waist deep water and were able to swim with the black tipped sharks and stingrays for about 45 minutes. I wasn't expecting this but it was one of the highlights of the trip! We then made our way to the beautiful motu. One of our guides gave demonstrations on how to weave the palm leaves to make a plate. He then opened several fresh picked coconuts from the motu and we all ate them. He showed us how to get coconut milk from the coconut shavings. They had a snack of fresh fruit and other goodies along with fruit juice. We had time to walk around the picturesque island, take pictures and swim. I recommend water shoes since there is a lot of coral around the island. Also bring a snorkel and mask to see all the beautiful fish! The guides were all very accommodating. One even brought his camera and took pictures of us which we purchased for a great price. I would definitely take this tour again!

I highly recommend this excursion. The trip includes a boat ride around the beautiful islands forming Bora Bora. The highlight is a stop at a breathtaking motu (small island), with soft beaches and coconut trees, surrounded by warm, turquoise water. Water shoes are definitely recommended because of the surrounding coral. The motu also offers excellent views of the mountains of Bora Bora, so don't forget your camera. After a swim, the tour operators spread a table with delicious fresh tropical fruit, bottled water, etc. After leaving the motu, we toured some of the other islands before being brought back to the tender dock.
The entire experience was delightful from start to finish.
