We had a lovely 2.5 hour sail around the island with Oliver during our visit to Bora Bora. This was such a nice change from the speed boats that zip you all over, often too fast to take any pictures. For a private tour the price was extremely reasonable and Oliver kept us entertained the entire time with his jokes,... More

We did the 1-1/2 hour sail, which was lots of fun, and absolutely beautiful. I think I had a big smile on my face the whole time! The ride allowed us to enjoy the many lovely colors of the water, as well seeing some rays and sharks. Olivier is very entertaining, too. I had found this on-line before our trip,... More

Absolute mastery of his boat and so good that he makes it look easy. It is not. He was also charming with the adults and our five-year old twins were enthralled. A master... More

This is a must-do activity on Bora Bora! Olivier is a wonderful host and guide, and a superb captain. Swimming with sharks and manta rays, all by ourselves, was a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Skip the jet skis and organized tours, and take a private tour of the island with Olivier on his comfortable boat. Sailing sometimes at a relaxing pace, and... More
