Activities not to be missed during a stay in Bora Bora
A large number of activities await you as soon as you set foot in Bora Bora, starting with scuba diving: the opportunity to discover the mesmerizing local flora and fauna. If you do not have much experience in this area, do not worry, you will get some practice sessions before diving deeper. The lagoon of Bora Bora is also renowned for its diversity. How about exploring it with a subscooter? A real compromise between snorkeling and diving, it allows you to move underwater while sitting comfortably. The head remains out of the water, so it is easier to breathe normally, which allows you to better appreciate the marine biodiversity in front of you: an unforgettable experience to try alone or in pairs to create timeless memories. Fishing enthusiasts can also indulge in their favorite activity during their stay in Bora Bora. Simply rent the services of a Boston Whaler Montauk boat and its captain and you might catch some small barracudas, groupers, trevallies or aiguillettes. On the other hand, if you want to admire the priceless view of the lagoon from the air, you will have to opt for the parasail.
