The Stuff Dreams are Made Of: A Day in Bora Bora

Today was one of those dream days that we’ll live to be 100 and still come back to the beauty of the moments we experienced here.

We woke to a little sun peeking through the clouds, so I was cautiously hopeful we would have good weather today. We had arranged for a private boat and snorkel tour today with La Plage Bora Bora, so I desperately wanted the weather to cooperate, at least for the boat tour portion. However, by the end of breakfast, the sky had darkened, and it looked like we were in for it. Our tour guide brought us to the first snorkel spot just in time for the skies to open and the rain to start. Fortunately for those snorkeling, it wasn’t a big problem since we were in the water. By the time we finished the first snorkel, the rain had let up, and by the time we were on our way to the next stop, the sun was working its way through the clouds. And then… what a day we had. I could tell you about it, but I’ll just show you instead.

We can’t say enough great things about our experience with La Plage. Mariano was a great guide and made sure we saw everything there was to see. His lunch recommendation was spot on, and his willingness to go the extra mile was much appreciated.

We just kept saying how lucky we are today. It truly was an amazing day, and we came back to the resort a little sunburned but totally satisfied.


We rounded out the day with a sunset, a barbecue, and a Polynesian show.


Tomorrow is our final full day. We’d love to have another day just like this one, but we’ll be glad for whatever we get. We’re in Bora Bora, after all!
