Best activities to do in Bora Bora

What are the best activities to do in Bora Bora? If you're planning a trip to soon, you're probably feeling a bit overwhelmed by all the options for activities. The truth is: there are a few activities, but they're provided by A LOT of vendors. Some of them are well worth your money, some others are not.

I've done the work for you and narrowed down the top 5 experiences / activities you don't want to miss during your trip along with the best providers according to our 20 000+ members so that you can make sure your trip will be amazing!

This is, hands down, the most popular activity in Bora Bora and for a good reason : You get to meet the kings of the lagoon!!

This activity being so popular choosing the right provider can be confusing & overwhelming. All tours, in essence, will take you to the same locations and allow you to swim with black tip sharks, stingrays and tropical fish in coral gardens.

What varies is the length of the tour (half day or full day including lunch), whether the tour is private or not, the boat, and the quality of the lunch. Here are some of the best tours I can personally recommend.

I know you can jet ski anywhere, but this isn't your average jet ski ride.

The colors of the lagoon, the mountain, and the overwater bungalows will make your ride absolutely spectacular. This could be the best place on the planet to jet ski.

Bora Bora is stunning both above and below the water! French Polynesia is a heaven for many marine species and unquestionably one of the best diving destinations in the world.

Did you know?

Don't pass up the opportunity to explore the entire underwater world.

Bora Bora is one of the few islands in French Polynesia where you can encounter Manta Rays while diving.



A tour with a local guide will take you through the tropical forest to the island's most beautiful viewpoints. You'll also learn about Polynesian legends and culture. Simply select your preferred itinerary and vehicle.

Local tip: I recommend booking a morning tour to see the best colors of the lagoon on the viewspoint. Plus, you wont be as hot.
