Diving within the waters of the most beautiful lagoon in the world is on many divers’ “must do” list because of the abundance of large marine life and the beautiful setting. The diving in and around the reef is fantastic and offers easy shallow lagoon dives as well as more challenging & deep drop off dives right in front of the island. It is quite a long a journey to get to Bora Bora, but you will be rewarded with a lot of black tip reef sharks, lemong sharks, manta rays and even humpback whales during the dry monsoon from June to October. And for the more adventurous and experienced, there are spine-tingling dives in the ocean, where one meets a variety of lemon sharks, black tip reef sharks and grey reef sharks. It's really an experience that won't be easily forgotten.

The best time to visit the Society Islands of French Polynesia is outside the cyclone season between the months of April and November.
Outside this period it can get quite hot and unpleasantly humid.
And don’t forget that from june to October humpback whales visit the Society Islands!
First fly into French Polynesia’s International Airport called Faa'a International Airport (www.tahiti-aeroport.pf) (Airport code PPT). This is the strategic gateway to the South Pacific islands of French Polynesia. Papeete can be reached from either Los Angeles, Japan, New Zealand, New Caledonia, Chile and Hawaii. Coming from Los Angeles the flight will take you about 9,5 hours. After this a short 45 minute flight with Air Tahiti (www.airtahiti.pf) will get you to Bora Bora.
