Lagoon Extravaganza - Full Day

Make the most of your Bora Bora vacation with this comprehensive excursion. Discover the island, swim with rays, tame sharks, and explore beautiful corals underwater. A grilled lunch awaits you after the day's adventures.

Lagoon Extravaganza - Full Day

Begin your Bora Bora adventure by circling the island aboard a boat. Sea spray refreshes you as you glide over the turquoise lagoon, enjoying amazing vistas. Reach a resting destination and prepare to swim with rays. Enter waist-deep water to get up close and personal with the magnificent fish. Feel their smooth, flat bodies and flapping wings, delighting in their friendly behavior. Feed them fish and they'll quickly become your buddies! If you feel scared, don't worry, rays don't have teeth.

Your captain provides snorkels and masks, allowing you to explore an underwater perspective, just like a fish! After your encounter with rays, it's time for sharks, their equally friendly cousins. They will impress you with their poise and beauty as they glide near you. With your snorkel and mask in hand, plunge into crystal blue waters to explore a gorgeous coral garden, an underwater oasis of vibrant colors. Corals of various hues are home to teeming fish, just as radiant as their ecosystem.

Prefer to stay on the boat? You can enjoy the colorful ocean life aboard your ship, visible through the sparkling clear lagoon. On a beautiful motu islet, a local family serves a grilled meal. With your feet in the lagoon, enjoy a savory plate of Tahitian food prepared in an Earth oven ("Ahi ma'a"). You will be returned to port after the tour's completion.

Book this comprehensive full-day Bora Bora shore excursion for an incredible day exploring a beautiful island.

About Shore Excursions Group
ABOUT US
Shore Excursions Group was created with one goal in mind: to provide exceptional travel experiences to cruise passengers in the ports they visit around the world. To accomplish this, we have compiled an exceptional array of tours delivered by local experts with decades of experience serving travelers and delivering excellent tours. Our owners and management team are comprised of seasoned travel industry executives who leverage their considerable experience to deliver memories of a lifetime.

We are experts in providing exceptional shore excursions. We understand that in today's fast paced world, vacations have become an increasingly important way to relax, reconnect with family and friends, and experience new and interesting places. With this in mind, we provide the highest quality tours by performing extensive research, and detailed reviews. While other companies also offer excursions, we strongly believe our expertise and approach set us apart. The large cruise lines sell shore excursions - typically in very large groups visiting high traffic sites. We focus on smaller groups visiting more interesting and authentic locations using more personalized local operators. While the cruise lines are experts in delivering cruises, we are experts in delivering shore excursions.

Our Approach
We believe quality service is not only highly valued by customers, but ultimately leads to better experiences and higher satisfaction. Unlike the cruise lines and other tour companies that rely almost entirely on websites, we encourage customers to call us. We want to invest our time answering your questions, providing input, and selecting the excursions that best meet your needs.

Our Tours
Our goal is to provide customers a wide array of exciting, appealing, and enriching tours. For those customers who prefer to travel in smaller groups with more personalized service, we offer a wide variety of small group tours around the world. These tours generally range in size from 2-12 people compared to larger tours which can number up to 50 people. While exploring the destinations and ports on this website, feel free to search for these "Small Group Tours". For those customers interested in private tours, we offer many outstanding excursions that allow you to travel with your party alone and, in many cases, to fully customize your tour. Search for "Private Tours" if you are interested in this experience. Our "Scenic" tours provide up close and personal access to some of the most spectacular natural environments on Earth from majestic glaciers in Alaska to spectacular reefs in the Caribbean. Our "Cultural" tours allow customers to experience local customs, entertainment and culinary delights ranging from tribal dances in Alaska to an outstanding local meal in Santorini, Greece. Our "Active" tours offer a multitude of exciting and adventurous ways to experience our destinations. Our customers can kayak the turquoise waters of the Caribbean, hike to a spectacular waterfall in Hawaii, or bicycle through quaint villages in France. Our "City" tours allow travelers to see the highlights of great cities around the world with unique insights provided by our expert tour guides.

Our People
In our experience, exceptional travel experiences are almost always delivered by exceptional people. With that in mind, we utilize a comprehensive approach to select and employ the leading tour guides and tour providers around the globe. We hold our people to very high standards which we measure by our comprehensive Quality Control process and, most importantly, by our customer feedback, which we will actively seek from each of our customers.
