We went on a rainy day in a small boat to this little island between Moorea & Tahiti. I was worried it would be cloudy, high surf or few fish. I was wrong on all three counts! Water had very good visibility, the seas very mild, and the fish were abundant. We saw sting rays, blacktip sharks, parrot fish, surgeons,... More

Sofitel scheduled this tour for us and it was amazing. Tour was perfect!! The kindness of all people of the group, the beauty and the guides contributed to that. Swim with sharks, rays and fishes is na amazing experience. Place is a little bit crowded, what is a pity.

I was skeptical about the Lagoonarium after three spectacular snorkeling trips - seriously was blown away. Feeding times are cool. We sat on the rope and were within arms reach if sting rays, huge three feet fish and sharks... it was like being in the middle if an aquarium. There is a second part of the feeding where you go...

We visited Lagoonarium the day after going on the Moorea Miti tour, which I preferred. In both experiences we got to swim with sharks and rays, which was a great experience, but, the Lagoonarium was really crowded with people when we were there. Because the current is very strong there, most of the time you have to hang on to... More

Go now! It's worth it! I snorkeled with sharks, stingrays, and fishes. I had a great time just make sure you bring snacks.

This was by far the best tour of our cruise on Carnival Legend. We did it ourselves as soon as we were ashore the 4 of us caught a taxi to the Lagoonarium office. We paid extra for lunch which was excellent. It was fantastic I love snorkelling and this was by far the most amazing experience ever! At first... More

This was absolutely amazing. And you can easily do it on your own--no need to book it with a tour group! You pay at the small kiosk by the side of the road--approx $30 US pp and they take you on a short boat ride to a small island. There they have toilets, fresh water, and small cabanas to put... More

We rented a Jeep one day and drove around the island and stopped here on our way around. This was one of the coolest experiences we had on the trip! Laid back atmosphere and you can go for as long as you want to snorkel. We got there around 10 and snorkeled around for a while before the shark and... More

This a friendly place for couples or family with kids. Feeding the fish, Rays and Sharks is fun. 3 Hours will be more than enough, be sure to take with you snack and food. If you have beach shoes and snorkeling gear take them with or you can rent them at the lagoon.
