Local Sightseeing, All
Information not currently available.
Approximately 2½ Hours
A local, open-air truck with individual cushioned bucket seats takes you on a leisurely, guided tour.
Your guide will share some insights into the daily life of Tahitians -- in particular the residents of Bora Bora. See how the popular pareo is made, learn about tupa crabs, taste locally-grown fruits and see relics left behind by the US military after World War II. Admire the ever-changing colors of Bora Bora's world-famous lagoon, and discover tropical flowers and trees among the dense green vegetation on the mountainside.
A panoramic drive takes you around the whole island and allows you to enjoy the impressive view of central Mount Otemanu, standing at more than 2,400 feet tall and dominating the landscape. It overlooks the turquoise lagoon and its beautiful crown of coral islands.
Pass along the east coast of Bora Bora -- site of many famous resorts. Matira Point boasts the prettiest sandy beach on the island. You'll stop at the famous Bloody Mary's restaurant for a chance to take photos before returning to the pier.
The vehicle does not have a compartment for storing wheelchairs or walkers; these must remain on the pier. Ride may be bumpy due to road conditions. The stop at Matira Beach is dependent upon parking availability.
