Kids 10 & 14 and I had great day. We were cruise ship passengers and at no time worried about being back in time as flexible to meet clients needs. Very professional and friendly for all levels of experience. Sandwich ordered was massive baguette (scrumptious). My mum chose not to snorkel and happily stayed on boat in sun with book.... More

This is my second trip with Aquanature and again a great experience. My wife and had organised this excursion for our first day of our vacation in Noumea. Unfortunately, the day was not great with some wind and average visibility in the water. However, the team at Aquanature were, per usual, well organised and had picked a site best suited... More

We had a wonderful time with the friendly and professional team of Aquanature. We are not very experienced snorkelers although we have done a day on the Great Barrier Reef. We loved how everything was included in the package including use of wetsuits and gear. And that we had our own guide Valerie and Puzzi (the dog) for our group... More

I think that the business has been sold since the comments about great for beginners. Part of our problems might have been a rough sea day. I found very little instruction or help for the beginners in our group. For those who have snorkeled before they had a great day. I as a first timer found it very tiring. I... More

We went with Aquanature on a half-day snorkeling tour. The guides are marine biologists and they provide a lot of insightful information about the reef and the fish. Groups were of 8 persons maximum and they do both English and French tours. We stopped at two beautiful locations and we saw reef sharks, turtles, octopus, sea snakes, sea cucumber and... More

We booked a snorkling excursion with Aquanature when our cruise ship was in Noumea. We went to two different sites and the snorkling was great. Beautiful coral and lots of fish. We had a monitor in front and at the back of our group. It was very safe and easy for beginners and experienced snorklers also. Thank you Frederique and... More

We got up early, were off the ship and walked to the pier where Aquanature were waiting for us. Unfortunately bad seas were forecast, and they were concerned about our safety and... More
