Bora Bora, French Polynesia
The ultimate destination for honeymooners, Bora Bora offers more than romance when it comes to its underwater menu. Often referred to as the “Shark Capital of the Pacific,” Bora Bora ups the ante on diving with these creatures that “Jaws” made synonymous with danger. Controversial-yet-exhilarating chum excursions bring divers face to face with a variety of sharks (think: black-tip and grey reef sharks and lemon sharks). Joined by armies of giant wrasses, swarming manta rays, rainbow jack fish, and oversized moray eels, Bora Bora is definitely a dive on the wild side.
