Great trip with Leo, who was energetic and entertaining. There were four other couples in the boat, including two passengers who were certain they weren't' going to get in the water with sharks or rays. Leo's confidence assured them of the safety, and all of us had the time of their lives. This truly is an experience not to be... More

One of our favorite parts of our trip was doing the 4-hour excursion with this company. This company is a family-operated business and these people truly know the island. We were picked up from our bungalow and quickly taken to start the trip. We fed colorful fish, swam with sting rays and black-tipped reef sharks! Our tour guides, a father... More

Several of us Cruise Ship people went with the Tepava's Raanui boat for a 'Look-see' and Snorkel amongst the coastal Coral formations. Yes!! This was nice. Some people went just to tag along...without wanting to swim etc. We are going back next month, March 2017, Easy to get in and out of the boat and saw lots of Rays and... More

I booked Raanui Tours for a private BBQ picnic and snorkle tour for my husband and I during our vacation this past November 2016. The owner (Arieta, I believe his name is) picked us up from our resort on his catamaran. He was very hospitable and even convinced me to go in the water to pet the stingrays and watch... More

My husband and I had the pleasure of going on this snorkeling tour in June 2015. We were almost going to cancel because we recently swam with the sharks and stingrays in Moorea, and we did not feel like repeating the same experience. We have traveled extensively and snorkeled at the great barrier reef in Australia. We feel we need... More

Our family of 4 was lucky to have a private tour on the Raanui II this morning with the owner and one of his lovely daughters. We have been to the Lagoonarium in Moorea just last week so I was a bit sceptical at the start, thinking nothing could top that. OMG! Did I set myself up for a real... More

Pacific4less set this tour up and we are all glad they did. My husband stated after the tour was complete that if everything else was terrible, the time spent with our guide was worth the trip! We were picked up from our resort and our guide had his two daughters helping him, we had 6 other snorkelers and our 5.... More

Raanui and his dad offer an amazing 5-hour tour of the Bora Bora lagoon. You start at a coral garden to snorkel with the most beautiful and plentiful tropical fish ever. You then go to a part of the lagoon where sting rays and reef sharks hang out. We got in the water with the sea creatures which was exhilarating.... More

This is the boat trip you want. Medium sized boat with about 14 people or so on board. There are other tours that have bigger boats. I'm glad we were on the smaller one so it was more personal. Every single stop was memorable. Do not miss this on your trip to Bora Bora. I had lower expectations because I... More
