Tour description provided by Viator

Enjoy a 4-hour fishing trip that cruises to great fishing spots in the turquoise waters of Bora Bora. Suitable for both experienced fishermen and novices, this tour features the know-how of a local captain who has fished in these waters for years. Choose a morning or afternoon lagoon fishing experience. Your captain shares tips and techniques to help you get a great catch, and all fishing gear is provided for two persons. This small-group tour, limited to four people (Two fishermen and two spectators), ensures a customized experience.
After pickup at your hotel or the Vaitape pier, meet your captain and receive a short safety briefing and trip outline. Then board your boat, a 17-foot (5.2-meter) Boston Whaler Montauk, equipped with a sun shade. Get comfortable on the quick and stable boat, which includes ample room for gear. As you cruise through the turquoise waters of Bora Bora, your captain shares in-depth knowledge of these clear tropical waters and their finned inhabitants. You’ll also learn about French Polynesian culture and its deep connection to the ocean. Both tours are available for beginning or experienced anglers. It’s up to you whether you’d like to release, keep or share your catch, which is stored on ice until you return to shore. You can check with your hotel to find out if the kitchen is able to prepare a meal for you with your catch. Your 4-hour tour ends with return to your hotel after a memorable fishing trip in Bora Bora. Lagoon Fishing:Your expert captain provides light tackle well-suited for the calmer waters of the Bora Bora lagoon. Troll for jacks, rainbow runner, bluefin trevally, bigeye trevally, small barracuda, lagoon bonito, needle fish, snapper and grouper. If you like, your captain can take you close to the barrier reef, where you can try spinning or popping. If you have your own fly-fishing gear with you, your captain can take you to good fly-fishing spots inside the lagoon. Some bonefish live around Bora Bora; however, the coral makes them difficult to catch. At times, big jacks that weigh more than 30 pounds (14 kg) can make a surprise appearance, but generally fish sizes vary from a half pound (250 grams) to 10 pounds (5 kg). This small-group lagoon fishing tour takes a maximum of four people.
