Watersports in Bora Bora

Take to the waves and experience Bora Bora's crystal clear waters.

A utopia for water lovers, Bora Bora features breathtaking ocean views, diverse marine life and warm, clear waters that invite you to paddle, swim and float. Those who love snorkeling, diving, surfing and kayaking will fall in love with this paradise island. Snorkel amidst vibrant coral reefs, explore the depths on diving adventures, ride the surf or glide on a SUP. On this gorgeous island, you’ll enjoy an aquatic odyssey like no other.

Surfing in Bora Bora

Surfers worldwide flock to Bora Bora in French Polynesia for its outstanding beaches and exhilarating waves. An exquisite blend of powder-white sand, warm waters and impressive swells offers an exciting surfing experience.

Experienced surfers especially appreciate Teavanui Pass. This renowned surf spot sits on the island of Bora Bora, within French Polynesia, and is famous for its massive barrels and powerful waves which provide an unforgettable ride. This one is for experienced surfers only.

We’d also recommend you check out Motu Piti Aau – although this is a less reliable spot for surfing than Teavanui Pass, it offers opportunities to surf from November to March, during the island’s wet season. Surfers should exercise caution however as this is during cyclone season, where strong winds and large waves can be risky. It’s also a challenging spot, so again, it’s better for experienced wave riders.

The best surfing conditions on the rest of the island occur from May to October when the swell direction changes. It’s important to research the ideal swell direction for each spot before heading out into the water.


Diving in Bora Bora

If you want to catch a glimpse of majestic manta rays and impressive sharks, then diving in Bora Bora is a must. On each dive, you’re treated to a symphony of vibrant hard and soft corals, bustling with an array of reef fish. The allure of exploring the waters within the world’s most exquisite lagoon is a must for many divers.

The island’s unique volcanic shaping has bestowed Bora Bora with a serene, translucent lagoon, that sits bordered islets and a coral reef, punctuated by a single pass leading to the deep blue embrace of the Pacific Ocean. Yet, it’s the sheer abundance and diversity of marine life that steals the limelight in Bora Bora’s underwater realm. Eagle rays, stingrays, bat rays and leopard rays can all be seen, as well as black tip reef sharks, lemon sharks, gray sharks, white tip sharks and hammerhead sharks. Humpback whales have even been spotted in these waters from late July to November.

Numerous established dive sites grace Bora Bora’s waters, catering to divers of all proficiency levels. The inner tranquility of the lagoon is perfect for beginners, while those seeking a challenge will find more intricate dives beyond the protective reef.
