Diving in Bora Bora

Bora Bora, where nature offers a marvelous underwater world, allows very specific dives. There are the manta rays and leopard rays that can be visited inside the lagoon. For the more adventurous and experienced, there are spine-tingling dives in the ocean, where one meets a variety of lemon sharks, black-tipped sharks and gray sharks.

Regardless of the diving level, an amazing underwater world can be discovered in all the tranquility. Most of the land or water activities offered on Bora Bora allow non-divers to discover the magic of this unforgettable universe. And there's one of the world's most unique sights, not to be missed: the manta rays' ballet in Bora Bora's lagoon all year-round. Being Bora Bora's lagoon one of the world's most beautiful, it's an experience that won't be easily forgotten.
