Notes:The Bora Bora Lagoonarium is a natural aquarium on a small motu
The Bora Bora Lagoonarium is a natural aquarium on a small motu (island), just east of the main island. (By "natural," we mean that this aquarium isn't man-made. Rather, it's a portion of the actual lagoon). One of the coolest things about this family-owned attraction is that you can actually snorkel on the premises, under the supervision of wildlife guides. Beneath the lagoon's surface, you'll spy sharks, turtles, rays, and many different kinds of ocean fish. And depending on what tour you choose (full-day, half-day morning, or half-day afternoon), you'll enjoy a number of other perks like a canoe tour of the island or a barbeque picnic.
