Discover the fabulous underwater world of Bora Bora on this fun and exciting Aquasafari adventure.
It's a short transfer by boat from the cruise ship pier to the dive site, where you will discover why Bora Bora's spectacular lagoon is considered to be among the most beautiful in existence today. Your certified diving instructor will give you a safety briefing and diving instructions before helping you put on your special dive helmet. This unique underwater experience allows you to descend to a depth of up to 10 feet and walk on the ocean floor, surrounded by hundreds of colorful tropical fish and amazing coral formations. As you freely maneuver about in total security just a few feet below the surface, your head remains dry inside your helmet, and you can even wear your glasses! Unlike conventional diving or snorkeling, you are connected to your boat by an air hose that allows you to breathe just as you would on land. No swimming or diving experience is required. Masks and snorkels are available, as there might be time for snorkeling while the other guests take their underwater walk.
Note: Participants must be at least 8 years of age. Tour is not recommended for guests with mobility concerns, heart conditions, asthma, pregnant women or those who suffer from claustrophobia. Guests should be in reasonably good physical condition. It will be necessary to negotiate a ladder to board the boat from the water. Only 8 persons at a time will be allowed underwater for the helmet dive. There are no changing facilities. Swimwear worn under a cover-up, sun cap, sunglasses, biodegradable sunscreen, towel and water shoes are recommended. Guests are cautioned not to touch or step on any coral for both safety and environmental reasons.
Those participating in any water activities do so at their own risk and responsibility. At the local operator's discretion you may be asked to sign a waiver. Underwater cameras and T-shirts might be available on board the boat and a film/video of your experience may also be offered for purchase directly from the boat operator. As this is an independent service, we cannot guarantee it. Guests should bring along some cash if they intend to purchase any items.
