Shark & Ray Lagoon Safari and Motu TAPU- Full Day with BBQ Lunch
Small family business native of the island, the Tepeva family will take you onboard one of its boats on exceptional preserved sites they discovered themselves, away from the bustle of the famous touristic spots. Ray, shark, octopus, lagoon fish, reef … it’s in a friendly atmosphere that the son or dad Tepeva will share its knowledge. To finish in style, discover one of the most beautiful motu of the Bora Bora, the mythical Motu Tapu, former residence of the queen and property prohibited to any person outside the court, hence its name of “tapu” (banned in Tahitian) where a BBQ lunch will be served. Enjoy a walk on the beach or a swim after lunch.
Black tip Sharks & Sting Rays Watching;
Standing in a 3-feet deep water, you will have the opportunity to touch the sting rays. The location where the black tip sharks are fed is close to the corral barrier, a rope is attached under the 3-feet deep water to observe them closely. From there, you can see the sharks, colorful fish and rays.
Enjoy snorkeling and discover the breathtaking underwater world: multi-color clams, shoals and colorful fishes and corals…
Picnic on Motu Tapu:
A delicious meal with grilled fish and meat (chicken or beef) accompagnied with a rice salad and greens will be served on mythic motu Tapu. Several tables covered with a tablecloth are set so you can enjoy lunch alone or share your thoughts about the morning discoveries.
