Wear a wetsuit and a yellow diving helmet for an unforgettable experience, walking in Bora Bora's spectacular lagoon - which some say is the most beautiful in the world. No diving experience is required, and you need not even know how to swim to discover this exciting new world. Your head will remain dry inside the helmet. You can even wear your glasses and remain in complete safety just a few feet below the surface.

A certified diving instructor will help you put on the helmet and go down the ladder into the crystalline waters for your 30-40 minutes of underwater experience. Surrounded by a myriad of multicolored tropical fish, walk on the sand among coral formations. The helmet, while heavy, is placed on your head just as you enter the water and taken off as you exit so you don't support any weight.

You remain connected to the boat's air supply via an air-hose. While this tour is suitable for most, be advised that those with heart problems, asthma or who are pregnant may not participate. When the time comes for you to return to the boat via the ladder, water and juice will be served. You may snorkel while others are on their walk.
