      (1 Review)
      • 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. 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 of Motu Tapu.

      Located just a few minutes by boat from the Bora Bora mainland, the tiny reef island 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 where she would have parties and hold receptions for a very privileged few, with exclusive access by personal invitation only. All others were forbidden from setting foot on 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's off-limits to regular folks. Motu Tapu, then, is the forbidden islet. Except that on this tour, you're on the list.

      James Michener called the lagoon at Bora Bora the "most beautiful in the world." The island itself is considered by many to be one of the most beautiful places on earth. Yet back in early Polynesia, there was a time when the outcasts and criminals of Tahitian society were exiled to Bora Bora. Let's hope that rehabilitated them.
