      Extended Shark & Ray Safari with Motu Tapu Visit & Lunch

      Bora Bora, French Polynesia
      From (USD) $119 Per Adult / $60 Per Child
      • Swimming with the sharks: You're in the water with just a rope separating you from a group of hungry blacktip sharks as they're fed right before your eyes. You'll be able to see and touch stingrays in water only three feet deep.
      • Underwater world: Don snorkel and mask and discover the beautiful coral garden and breathtaking undersea world of multicolor fish, clams, shoals, octopus, and other species.
      • Motu Tapu: Spend some time exploring this dazzlingly beautiful islet, reputed to be the most photographed reef island in the South Pacific and once the private beach of Polynesian Queen Pomare IV.
      • Picnic lunch: Delicious grilled fish, chicken, or beef will be served with a rice salad and greens at covered tables set along the beach on stunning Motu Tapu islet. Soft drinks, water and beer are included.
      • Roundtrip transportation: Hotel pick-up and drop-off from most local hotels is included; a small fee may apply at some locations.
      About This Bora Bora Tour

      Her name was Pomare IV. She ruled as the fourth monarch of Tahiti between 1827 and 1897. And she had one favorite spot in all of her kingdom, the islet Motu Tapu.

      The islet, a few minutes by boat from Bora Bora's mainland, actually had no name when Pomare IV took it to be her private beach. The soft, white sand, sparklingly clear waters and extraordinary underwater world of corals and sea life, made it the perfect sanctuary for a queen.

      But while it was there that Pomare IV retreated to be alone, it was also there that she would have parties and hold receptions for a very privileged few. With exclusive access by personal invitation only. All other were forbidden from the islet.

      And that's how Motu Tapu got its name. Motu, meaning islet in Tahitian, and Tapu, referring to something holy or sacred that regular people are forbidden from. Motu Tapu is the forbidden islet. Except that on this tour, that doesn't apply to you.

      I'd like to buy a consonant

      The name Bora Bora translates roughly to "first son," which indicates the importance that this island holds in Tahitian culture. Except that wasn't exactly the original name. The Tahitian alphabet has 13 letters, 5 vowels and 8 consonants. The letter "b" is not one of them. Bora Bora was actually called Pora Pora, but European explorers mistook the sound of the p for a b. And it's been Bora Bora ever since.
