We went there with both the Black Watch and more recently the Arcadia, the ship that loves to travel. It is a tender port and the Arcadia was moored in the bay with the Holland & America, Maasdam.

Bora Bora is a sun, sea and sand paradise, unless it rains. The day we were there it rained though it was warm rain. We still got to see what you would see if the sun was out, as there is very little to see and do in Bora Bora. If it does rain there will be a queue for the tender back, as there is at lunch time. When you step from the ship, music will be waiting to greet you as the locals try to sell you tours and facilities. The port is full of Pearl shops that will make jewellery to your design. We show the shop that seemed to be favoured by the passengers mainly because it was very friendly. What do you do in a day visit? If you chose the clear turquoise blue sea you chose right – it is a swimmer or snorkeler’s dream. Lazing on the fantastic sand is good too. The beach is a five dollar taxi up the road once all the buses have finished hustling for around the island tours – it is not a walk. That beach is shown on the film so you can assess that trip. Our film shows the short island tour with just four featured stops.

We also visit the beach and rum shack, though there are other options this is where the tour buses stop. You might, therefore, hire a bike or eco car (like a beach buggy, not a real car). A bike is fifteen dollars, more than the taxi but this is a hugely expensive island. A fridge magnet will cost between ten and twelve dollars, a pound in the UK and two to three euros in most other places in the world. Unless you laze on the beach, you are likely to be back on the ship for lunch.

This is a place where a tour might be considered a good move. Tours available in Bora Bora include the Aqua Bike!

Your next stop maybe Fiji. We made a full length feature film there with the band Status Quo. That was a huge laugh.

Why not have a look at the LATE DEALS over a coffee from your arm chair? Doris Visits allows you to SEE THE CRUISE BEFORE YOU CRUISE THE SEA.
