We were lucky enough to book a snorkel tour as part of a shore tour on our P&O cruise. We thank Valerie, Bernard and crew for making this a very memorable shore tour. From the first minute till the last Aquanature made all persons feel welcome and ensured all levels of snorkelers were catered for. Special thanks to Bernard for... More

Like many, we booked this trip due to the good reports on Trip Advisor. I pre booked it as the only day they did a whole day was on Sundays so I thought I'd get in quick. The morning of the trip was somewhat wet as the heavens decided to open. But the hotel gave tham a quick call to... More

our decision to book a reef snorkeling trip with Aquanature was influenced by Tripadvisor reviews. We made the right choice. We booked a half day trip. We could not have had better day, the highlight of our Noumea experience. Aquanature's attention to our needs and their desire to ensure we had a great experience was second to none. Thank you...

We went out with Valerie and Roberto of Aquanature and snorkeled at Sentinel Island and one other location (never did catch the name). The water was crystal clear, the fish and other creatures plentiful and Valerie and Roberto were great. They hauled sea cucumbers from the bottom pointed out lovely coral and creatures and were VERY attentive especially to the... More

We found this business on trip advisor and add our vote for this being a number one attraction. The proprietor, Valerie, is tireless in her energy, enthusiasm and knowledge. They are dedicated to ensure that everyone enjoys the trip to the outer reef, beginners go experienced snorkelers alike. We were well cared for and provided with quality equipment. If you... More

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

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
