What a experience! This is a very interactive place and get to see a lot of water animals, sharks, stingrays, turtles, fish, eels, etc. When you get there you see the staff feeding the sharks; after that the staff takes you around the place and talk about the animals; all this is interactive so you get to go in the...

Swim with lemon sharks circling you, and take a ride with a shark by holding on to its fin! There is a large sting ray that is very friendly, it keeps hanging around you, even rubbing up to you looking for a morsel of fish. The place is operated by the local family so it does not have the polished... More

We kayaked to this spot from our hotel, and snorkeled with all the folks who'd paid to arrive by boat. There's sealife aplenty here, and usually enough people to make it interesting (and safe) without overcrowding. The local divers fed a moray eel by hand-- eeesh!

This was a big surprise we had no expectations but the day turned out to be one of best days here. Although a bit scary it was totally safe!

Maeva is a enormous napoleon fish that is amazing. She swims around you and is the size of my 7 year old. The fish in the Lagoon follow you everywhere, great fun for snorkeling. We swam there several times it was a blast.

As first time snorkelers, this tour was just what we needed to get us acclimated to swimming with sealife. We were picked up in a jeep at the hotel reception and taken to the lagoonarium "Office." (no building, just a shaded bench waiting area). We got on the boat and snorkel equipment was provided. There was only us and one... More

Our favorite spot while staying at the St Regis. Snorkeling was amazing and the equipment is provided by the main pool. You can buy fish food at the gift shop and have an amazing adventure without leaving the resort. The girl that takes care of the marine life there gives a lesson there about the fish. There is a huge... More

For anyone who is afraid to interact with animals of the sea, the Lagoonarium is an excellent starting place. I highly recommend visiting!

The two men who ran this large group trip size day were energetic and well meaning, for sure trying to give their guests a good day. For that reason it is painful for me to be at all critical, but my husband and I were disappointed and upset by the lagoonarium. We left mid day (full day trip) when there... More
