Adventures on Bora bora island, French Polynesia
Experience the adventures of a lifetime on Bora bora island!

Many people come to Tahiti Polynesia "to get away from it all" and to relax.

Although Bora Bora is indeed a wonderful place to enjoy a peaceful vacation, not everyone wants to merely lounge around taking in the sun and sights at such a casual pace. Some people want adventure!

Explore the interior of the island on a 4x4 safari, chase the mighty marlin on a world class deep sea fishing cruise, go parasailing, hike the tropical trails of Bora bora's interior, or check out one of Polynesia's favorite thrills- shark and ray feeding! There's lots of different adventures to experience.

This is your ADVENTURES guide to Bora Bora!

TST makes choosing your favorite island activity easy! If you want MORE choices, simply check out our other "To Do" pages: WATERSPORTS, ISLAND FUN, RELAXATION, RECREATION & GAMES, or SHOPPING, EATING & SERVICES.

Wan't more? Be sure and explore our "WHAT TO SEE" section for even more sightseeing and exploring ideas, touring, island attractions, and other interesting things to see and do!


4x4 Safaris

The island of Bora bora has a handful of interior roads that are only accessable to 4 wheel drive vehicles. 4x4 safaris on Bora boraThe majority of these roads were actually cut by the American military during "Operation Bobcat" in the early '40's.

One of them starts at Faanui near Vairau Bay and climbs a ridge with an excellent view of Raiatea, Tahaa, and Maupiti islands, while another follows tracks from Taihi point (on the north side of the island) and along the ridge pointing to Mt. Popoti, a well known pointed shaped mountain 249 meters high.

Amazing views of the lagoon...A few companies specialize in showing you these roads via the usage of thier specially designed Range Rovers - ready to handle any road condition, any time.

From these roads, one can get the best views of the spectacular scenery, get up close and personal with giant coastal WW II defense guns, see the lush interior tropical flora, and generally speaking, gain a whole new perspective of the island.

These excursions are usually run by knowledgable locals who will educate you about many things along the way... history, facts, useful information and usually a few good jokes. You will be entertained as well as educated. In our opinion, they are all well worth the price of the ticket.

Here are the local 4x4 businesses ready to take you on a Bora Bora 4 wheel drive safari you are sure to remember for a long time.

Fly over the lagoon...Parasailing

One sport people hear about but rarely get a chance to do is Parasailing. This is awesome!It's super fun to do and quite a thrill. All ages can do it.

The experience takes about 10 minutes and you'll get up to 600 feet above the water! You dont even have to know how to waterski or get your feet wet if you don't want to.

All you do is clip into the harness, and step onto the extra wide deck of the specialized towboat where you'll be taking off once the boat reaches a certain speed.

As the boat heads into the wind, the parachute cups over and you just start to fly, fly, fly...

When you're soaring, you'll have the most amazing view of the lagoon, but you may be too amazed at your flying abilities to really enjoy it. This is another adventure in Tahiti- Polynesia that you'll be sure to take home in your memories!

There is one place on Bora Bora to try this adventure:

Hiking & Climbing

Mt. Otemanu photo credit: EriQ.'s Photostream : Click to see more!Day hiking on the island of Bora bora is wonderful, but semi-limited due to the fact that the island is relatively small. The trail system is good, but easily experienced in only a day or two of non-strenous hiking.

The real challenges on this island are in climbing the steep mountains of the interior. If they look steep and forbodding from the bay or your hotel, it's because they are!

Mt. Otemanu photo credit: EriQ.'s Photostream : Click to see more!The mountains Pahia and Otemanu (Bora Bora's highest point) are incredible destinations and challenges for the experienced and serious hiker.

These cliffs are notorious for their difficult and unpredictable climbing conditions due to loose and crumbling rock, hard to find trails, and steepness.

There are only a handful of experienced individuals on the island capable of leading the adventurous to the magical interior - and it's great news for you that they make their climbing passion their business.
