This is the closer thing to diving. You can swim and snorkel with big sharks and stingrays and even touch the stingrays. It felt very safe. Definitely worth doing if you are in the area and don't get the opportunity to dive..

Our group only took the second half of the tour which was snorkeling in the fenced areas. Although very interesting, it wasn't really worth the price. We did see some exotic fish and we swan with about 8 lemon sharks. The tour guide was Max and he was very entertaining. If I had to do it again, I wouldn't do... More

We spent several hours snorkelling in the lagoonarium where we saw an abundance of fish. We have snorkelled at some amazing places around the world and this comes up high on our list.

Bob, Ray, and Max were outstanding tour guides. The crew were enthusiastic and entertaining. It was not a packed boat like others, more individualized. We really enjoyed the all day tour, with lunch. Highly recommend it.

This makes it really easy for those who have not snorkeled much, but hard to do this knowing that it's fake. It's like snorkeling in a local aquarium, but so many different varieties of fish and sea creatures!

This is definitely a place to go to see some cool marine life however, it felt very "fake" in the sense that these fish were physically put here. We actually did a snorkel trip out in the ocean on a catamaran and were able to see the fish in their natural habitat and the snorkeling was just as good. definitely... More

Pre phoned on the Thursday from Papeete ( information bureau ) only to be told , " not open on Saturdays " . When I asked the person representing the lagoonarium if they... More

Just bike or walk over to the very sturdy ladder and slip into the cool water. It isn't horribly deep - 10-15feet, maybe 20 in spots. The towel hut also provides complimentary snorkel gear. The lagoon circles a motu which houses the spa. So you can't get lost - just go in a circle. There were some fish - not... More
