Duration: 2 1/2 hours
Tour Code: bob-002
Explore the island paradise of Bora Bora during this scenic orientation tour via Le Truck.
Depart the pier aboard a Le Truck for a tour around this island paradise. First, you will drive through the district of Fa'anui. Along the way, you will pass by small villages and fields that offer a glimpse into the everyday life of the people of Bora Bora. A brief stop will be made at Fa'anui Bay for photographs of Mounts Otemanu and Pahia. Your drive will continue on to the ancient ceremonial site of Fa'anui Marae, followed by a look at the bunkers constructed by American GIs during World War II.
Next, a stop will be made at Mama Edna's to sample local delicacies such as breadfruit, poe mixed with coconut milk (not marinated), taro and tropical fruit. You will also have an opportunity to buy some local, hand-painted pareus. From a lookout point, you will see Mount Otemanu, Bora Bora's highest peak, which stands as a silent sentinel over the Pearl of the Pacific.
You will then pass by Bora Bora's Club Med Village before reaching sandy Matira Beach. A stop will be made here to take in splendid vistas and photo opportunities before driving back to Vaitape.
Please note: Le Truck is an open-air vehicle resembling a windowless bus. Be prepared for a bumpy ride during part of this island tour. While this tour can accommodate those with mobility concerns, due to a lack of space in the vehicles, wheelchairs and walkers must remain on the pier with security.
