Duration: 1 1/2 hours
Tour Code: BOB-010
"Discover the fabulous underwater world of Bora Bora on this fun and exciting Aquasafari adventure.
It's a short transfer by boat from the cruise ship pier to the dive site, where you will discover why Bora Bora's spectacular lagoon is considered to be among the most beautiful in existence today. Arriving at the site, your certified diving instructor will give you a safety briefing and diving instructions before helping you put on your special dive helmet. This unique underwater experience allows you to descend down to a depth of up to 10 feet and walk along the ocean floor, surrounded by hundreds of colorful tropical fish and amazing coral formations. As you freely maneuver about in total security just a few feet below the surface, your head remains dry inside your helmet, and you can even wear your glasses! Unlike conventional diving or snorkeling, you are connected to your boat by an air hose that allows you to breathe just as you would on land.
Before returning to the pier, you'll also have some time for swimming or just relaxing on the boat.
Please note: Walking and other activities are mainly at the guests' discretion; however, this tour is recommended for guests in reasonably good physical condition. It will be necessary to negotiate a ladder to board the boat from the water. For safety and security reasons, only 8 persons at a time will be allowed underwater for the helmet dive portion of the tour. The tour is not available to wheelchair guests, those with mobility concerns, heart conditions, asthma, or pregnant women, and may not be suitable for those who suffer from claustrophobia. Swimwear worn under a cover-up; sun cap; sunglasses; biodegradable sunscreen; towel; and flat comfortable shoes or aqua socks are recommended. Plastic shoes, wetsuits, masks and snorkels will be available. Guests are cautioned not to touch or step on any coral for both safety and environmental reasons. Those participating in any water activities do so at their own risk and responsibility and at the local operator's discretion you may be asked to sign a waiver before being allowed to participate in the tour. Underwater cameras and t-shirts are available on board the boat and a film/video of your experience may also be offered for purchase directly from the tour's operator."
