We were looking for a cultural experience in Noumea, and this was the best we came across, similar to the feasts you would have in Hawaii or Fiji. Island is great, snorkelling is great - the unexpected (which is why I have given it 4 stars and not 5) is that there is little to no food available to purchase... More

The island is certainly a treasure. Beautiful, crystal clear water abundant with exotic sea life. White sandy beaches with many options to enjoy or simply relax and take in the beauty.

Great spot questions and very scenic. We joined via ameedee dive and had about 2 hours between dives. 12yr old daughter totally freeked out by the snakes. But the turtles provided a great distraction. See you next time

What a great day trip we had to Amadee Island. Everything was well organised by the Mary D crew. The guide was really good and informative and the island was spectacular. The snorkelling was amazing and I even got to swim with a turtle (until another swimmer scared it off). Lunch was great as was the show. Loved the sea... More

Wow Amedee island is a paradise in the middle of crystal clear waters. the marine life is abundant and the sands are so clean and white. Be sure to check out the glass on the beach that has been smoothed. We had a delicious lunch and enjoyed some cultural dances

This is a fantastic Island to see. It does have an active lighthouse so if you are interested in lighthouses this is a must see. You can, for a small price, climb to the top for a fantastic view. We can to the island with the Mary D group. We rode the Princess out and were comfortable for the 45... More

So I was hesitant to book this tour as yes it was expensive, and also because I wasn't sure it was worth the money for my boys aged 3 and 5. I'm so glad we went there, it was an amazing day for us all. We were lucky enough to get some lounge chairs and found a great spot on... More
