Owner description

Come and live a unique experience while in Bora Bora, French Polynesia!

Embark in a guided exploration of one of the Bora Bora lagoon reef onboard your own 2-seat open submersible/scooter. The scooters have an electrical propulsion and are autonomous thus not limiting you to a small diving area.

A typical dive will cover approximately 1.5 Kilometer underwater at a depth of 3-4 meters (12-15 feet) and will last 30-40 minutes. Our guide will stop along the way to allow you to observe the marine life up close.

During the briefing, our guide will teach you how to pilot and debrief you after the dive about the marine life you have. There is no need to be a swimmer or diver to enjoy the experience, anyone over 16 years of age can be a pilot!

Your head will stay dry in its glass bubble, you will breath as you would on the surface. You will be able to talk and share your feelings during the dive while sharing unforgivable moments.

The whole excursion will encompass:

1- FREE Pick up in Vaitape or at one of the Hotels base in our comfortable van.

2- Departure from the pier in Vaitape for a 15-20 minute boat ride to our marine base in the Bora Bora lagoon.

3- Briefing and dive, fresh fruits and refreshments afterward

4- You will then embark on a sightseeing boat ride with a stop to swim and snorkel before returning to Vaitape where you will then be picked up.

An optional video of your underwater tour is also available for sale after the dive. You are also encouraged to take your own underwater camera if you have one.

We have been operating the "scooters" for over 8 years with a perfect safety record. The "scooters" are engineered with a primary air source and backup, it is not possible to neither tilt during the dive nor run out of air.

I read the reviews prior to booking this with our concierge and it sounded perfect. I'm not a diver but was looking for something a little different than a snorkeling excursion. This was perfect! We met our guides at the dock and they took us on a 15 minute boat ride, where we then transferred to our aquabikes. I was... More

We booked this activity from our cruise ship prior to sailing so we did not miss out. We were extremely luck as we found out later that there was waiting list to do the adventure. There were there time and only three aqua bikes for each time slot. We were picked up from the pier and transported to the pontoon... More

My husband surprised me with a trip to Bora Bora for our 20th anniversary:>) We decided to experience Aquabike Adventure. JP & Remy are amazing! They are both knowledgeable and extremely funny. I am not a swimmer and they made me feel at such ease. Definitely a must do for anyone wanting to experience the deep blue sea!

This was a different adventure and would recommend for those that don't like snorkeling and can't scuba dive. The experience is the same as snorkeling except you can get about 8-10 feet deep. You will see much of the same fish as you can above but different lens and can see the "drop off." Anytime you are in the water... More

This is the way to go if you do not scuba dive! This was a lot of fun and we even got to see the barracuda.

This was incredible fun, especially good if you are not a strong swimmer or a diver, it's a great way to get under the water without getting your head wet! JP and co are very friendly and funny, they video your experience so afterwards you have the opportunity to buy and download your video so you can remember it forever!... More

My wife and I were a little nervous, and we didn't know what to expect exactly, but this was a truly amazing experience. The guides who were scuba divers directing our aquabikes, were friendly and entertaining. Once in a lifetime experience. I wish that we had brought a camera, even a regular non-waterproof one which we could have kept dry... More

JP & his crew make you feel completely at ease before you start. The aqua bikes are an amazing & fun experience that would appeal to all. They are easy to drive & the ride is made all the better with JP's tomfoolery! If you want a James Bond moment - this is it!

What a great adventure, particularly if you are not a scuba driver. A great way to experience diving. Remy drove us to our destination and JP was our underwater guide. After some good detailed instructions, we were seated on our scooter, the windowed dome was placed over our heads and we were slowly immersed into the water. JP ensured that... More

This is real cool and great fun. I'd rate it 6 stars out of 5, it's surreal how you are submersed in something that looks like it's out of a James Bond Movie with your shoulders and head in the an air tight bubble. You don't need any experience of diving or snorkelling, it's easy to just follow Remy as... More
