The name Bora Bora alone conjures up almost mystical images of pristine white sand beaches, hammocks swinging in a light breeze between graceful palm trees, and palapa huts jutting out into impossibly turquoise water. None of this is make-believe. The island, part of French Polynesia in the South Pacific Ocean, is a natural marvel. And if the beauty of the land and coastline of this atoll wasn’t enough, there’s another remarkable world beneath the waves too.

A snorkeling tour in Bora Bora is the best way to get better acquainted with the reefs and lagoons that make this place so special. When snorkeling is not enough of a draw on its own, there are plenty of tours that throw additional water or land-based activities too. Choosing an eco-friendly tour respectful of this fragile natural environment is essential. Therefore, here are five of the best Bora Bora snorkeling tours based on a number of factors, including eco-friendliness, the duration, health and safety precautions, value for money and the reviews of previous guests.
