General about Bora Bora (Formalities, Fuel, Water, Shops, Activities) you can read there: http://www.wesailors.com/marina/profile/915


Approach
 
Approach from north to the channel going west of island Toopua is well marked by cardinal buoy then red buoys (leave to port) and green (leave to starboard). Our charts (Navionics) do not cover precise location of this buoys. So, do a eye ball navigation, it’s easy route.
 
The narrow pass near the Hilton Hotel is 5 meters deep and well marked by gree red buoys.
 
You can drop the anchor south of the Toopua Island, at position:
 
16 32.0325 S and 151 45.8791 W
 
(bottom is sand with some corals – try to avoid them). Depths about 10 meters.
 
Practically it is not a good anchorage, open for E winds and some swell, I do not recommend it for night staying but it is close from here (0.4NM) to very nice snorkeling spot (Toopua corals – see http://www.wesailors.com/marina/profile/913/ ). We did a stop here for 2 hours and had very nice snorkeling.

For crews

Excellent snorkeling spot at position:  
16 31.9167 S and 151 45.4988 W – there are small mooring buoys for your dinghy.
