|About these ratings|
The Bora Bora Lagoonarium is a natural aquarium on a small motu (island), just east of the main island. (By "natural," we mean that this aquarium isn't man-made. Rather, it's a portion of the actual lagoon). One of the coolest things about this family-owned attraction is that you can actually snorkel on the premises, under the supervision of wildlife guides. Beneath the lagoon's surface, you'll spy sharks, turtles, rays, and many different kinds of ocean fish. And depending on what tour you choose (full-day, half-day morning, or half-day afternoon), you'll enjoy a number of other perks like a canoe tour of the island or a barbeque picnic.
One TripAdvisor user offers a word of advice: "Warning though with feeding stingrays - be careful. I had one take a good portion of skin from one of my fingers."
A full-day tour costs 9,500 CPF (about $106 USD), while the half-day tours range from 6,200 CPF to 7,250 CPF (roughly $69 to $81 USD) depending on whether you go in the morning or the afternoon. You'll need to book a reservation directly with the Lagoonarium, and they'll schedule a time to pick you up from your hotel. For more information, visit the website.
