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

Aquanature is an outstanding snorkel tour operator in Noumea. We worked with Valerie, the manager, to set up an all day snorkel tour during a one day cruise stop. 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

She was very polite about my awful French and we spoke English after that! We left the marina and raced out to the snorkeling area -it took about... More

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...
