Port 7 Bora Bora — An excursion to Bloody Mary’s


World Famous Bloody Mary’s Bar, Restaurant, & Yacht Club

As we headed back to the dock where we would tender back to the Crown Princess, Patrick presented to us one last option.  Those who wanted to go back to the ship immediately could disembark from his outrigger in Nūnu’e.  Those who wanted instead to visit the “World Famous” Bloody Mary’s Bar, Restaurant, & Yacht Club could opt to travel across Pofai Bay, exit the outrigger, say our goodbyes, and make our way back into Nūnu’e by taxi to catch the tender later.  Ursula, I, and two others took the latter of the two options.

The dock to Bloody Mary’s

The dock serving Bloody Mary’s is a private one, as you can see from this sign:

Bloody Mary’s was founded in 1979, and over the nearly forty years since it has gained quite the reputation.

Just how big an attraction is Bloody Mary’s?  Let’s take a look at some of this establishment’s more famous clientele, including “Who are 3 people who’ve never been in my kitchen?“:

There’s no mistaking when you’ve arrived:

The exterior of Bloody Mary’s is quite the sight:

Ursula and I didn’t dine here.  We chose instead to partake of Bloody Mary’s famous mixed drinks:

It’s been a while, but I believe we wound up with a Vanilla Rum Punch and a Maitai Roa:

The bar itself is quite impressive:

I told you on Wednesday that Patrick was a bit of an exhibitionist, and above you can see the proof.  Now for some Bora Bora Fun Photo Friday Favorites (more next week, as well as a Polynesian lunch):
