Enjoy an absolutely spectacular, pyrotechnic sunset from the deck of a catamaran while cruising Bora Bora’s crystal-clear lagoon. The crew practices Polynesian etiquette, so take off your shoes before boarding the catamaran and be ready for a pareo tying and a dance lesson!
After departing from the pier in a catamaran, you will ease into Bora Bora’s beautiful lagoon, a turquoise body of water that couldn’t be more picturesque. From this seaside perspective, you will enjoy a front-row seat of Mount Otemanu, one of two extinct volcanoes at the heart of Bora Bora. It rises more than 2,400 feet above the sea level, and may well be one of the world’s most photogenic peaks, so don’t forget your camera.
Feel free to spend your time onboard doing whatever you please at your own pace. You might sit out on deck while enjoying a cool drink, strike up a conversation with the other guests, join the Polynesian dance lesson or ask the crew about the history of Bora Bora.
The island’s name means “first born” in the Tahitian language, as it was the first of the Leeward Islands according to legend. French is the official language; the result of France annexing Bora Bora in the late 19th century. Despite being just over 11 square miles in size, the island played an important role in World War II once the Allies built an airstrip.
Still, it is the natural beauty of Bora Bora that attracts so many visitors, and cruising the lagoon at sunset offers one of the most picture-perfect views of the island.
