Detailed Description

French Polynesia offers the allure of relaxing in paradise and activities brimming with excitement during your 8-day Bora Bora vacation tour. The thrills begin with your arrival at Bora Bora Airport. Your private transfer greets you at baggage claim and escorts you over the lagoon to your charming overwater bungalow. Take a moment to explore your resort and the comforts of your suite. Enjoy an introduction to the island with a guided exploration along the coastline, offering insight into the remnants of the ancient Polynesian culture that settled Bora Bora.

The following morning, you meet your guide and venture out on a half-day Jet Ski excursion around the gorgeous lagoon. The remainder of the day is at your leisure to bask in the beauty of the beaches or visit the town of Vaitape. Then, you venture out on another Jet Ski excursion, relishing the fresh air and gorgeous landscape. Delight in a marvelous lunch at an iconic Bora Bora restaurant before participating in a snorkeling excursion focused on finding blacktip reef sharks and manta rays.

Learn the art of riding a stand-up paddleboard. The activity combines adventure and relaxation on the water. In the afternoon, you make your way to a nearby resort to meet a private chef keen on guiding you through the most important flavors of French Polynesian cuisine. The next day is at your leisure to indulge in the splendors of Bora Bora at your preferred pace. Lounge on the white sand beach or bike ride along the coastal road. In the evening, you board an outrigger canoe for a private sunset cruise around the island. Relish a gourmet dinner alongside the ocean before returning to your resort.

Dive beneath the sea with an aquabike tour. Ride a motorized scooter 10 feet beneath the sea’s surface to view the life around the coral gardens. Once above the water, you fly into the sky with a parasailing outing, offering vibrant panoramas of the reefs, shores, and mountaintops. The following day, you soar into the sky once more, this time exploring on a private helicopter ride. Take in the lush treetops, basalt cliffs, and the heart-shaped island of Tupai. Upon returning to your resort, you can bask in the luxury and comfort of a spa treatment to help soothe the body after a week of remarkable adventures.
