Our family of 4 ( with kids aged 6 and 8 ) enjoyed a half day trip out to the 2nd largest reef. Second only to the Great Barrier Reef! After a 30 minute boat ride out to the lagoon which is near Signet Island we were ready to go. The boat is very spacious and perfectly fitted out for... More

We had a half day snorkelling trip with Aquanature which included two 50 min snorkels, guide, snorkel, face mask and wetsuit. It was an amazingly wonderful experience. We went to the two areas on a lovely comfortable catamaran to, the first which had spectacular coral and we saw turtles, stingrays. After a snack of biscuits and tea or coffee we... More

We had a fabulous day with aquanature. We snorkled at two different areas for 50 minutes at each spot. Both spots offered different viewing opportunities with different sea life. Roberto and Valerie were wonderful hosts. Valerie snorkelled with us, and continually pointed out interesting creatures to view. She also took my son off for a snorkel, so I could have... More

5 of us took a half day snorkelling tour. It was wonderful. All equipment is provided and it is in good condition. Valerie was our guide and pointed out sea life that we wouldn't have seen by ourselves, such as turtles and stingrays. I left my bag on boat at end of trip and contacted Valerie by email and she...

I booked a half day snorkelling trip with Aquanature based on the positive reviews but was still a bit unsure how we would go with young children - 6 and 8yrs - with limited swimming skills. It turned out to be an amazing experience for us all and an absolute highlight of our travels as a family so far. There... More

We booked a last minute snorkelling tour with Aquanature. Our host Valerie was fantastic in every respect. She was both friendly and knowledgeable, and looked after us very well during our excursion to Signal Island. The weather was good for our trip and the boat was very comfortable. Valerie was very kind with one of the other snorkelers who lacked... More

We recently traveled to Noumea via cruise ship and went on a snorkeling tour with Aquanature to 'the lagoon'. From start to finish the guides were friendly and helpful with no problem too big or small. As soon as we boarded the boat Valerie quickly organised our equipment and we set off to the lagoon. On the trip to the... More

Everything from initial email correspondence with Valerie to the snorkel excursion was top notch. The boat was comfortable and the crew was very informative and delightful, both in the water and...

I did the afternoon snorkelling trip whilst on a cruise. Valerie and her staff were excellent and good fun. The snorkelling was amazing - turtles, octopus, fish, a sting ray and small reef sharks. All gear is supplied including wet suits. You are only people at the small island that they take you to so you have a beautiful place... More
