My wife and I are from the U.S and we saw the reviews on Tripadvisor. I do most of my activity planning via Tripadvisor and this was 3.5 stars for me and 4 stars for my wife. I was told to come by 8 through email and to email the day before. I did not email the day before, but... More

What a fun place to visit! You take a 5 minute motorized outrigger ride out to a small island. We were assigned half of a rustic hut to store our clothes/footwear/bags, etc. The currents can be strong, so you are asked to hold on to buoyed ropes and pull yourself around a huge lagoon as you snorkel to view all...

I was there a few years ago with my Tahitian family but my photos remind me what a wonderful place this is. I looked again this time and see it is still open after some reported threats of closing. You buy tickets on the mainland and get shuttled into the lagoon island where an area is cordoned off for the... More

My partner and I visited the lagoonarium on our second last day and wow it was great! Personally I was quite scared of the stingrays and they were just swimming around everywhere. I know they are perfectly friendly but the amount I saw swimming over all the coral did terrify me a little. My partner on the other hand said... More

This was one of the best excursions in Moorea! You swim among fish, sting rays, eels and black tip sharks! It was scary at first but you get used to it once your I. The water for an hour. Don't miss the feedings and go early in the morning.

We didn't arrive early enough the get our own hut, but we still found room to sit. The snorkeling is fantastic. We stayed for both feedings which are a great show. The guys working there are very helpful and fun. The layout of ropes help the most novice snorkeler. A great day of fun!

I'll chime in with nearly every other reviewer by saying that this is a not-to-be-missed adventure. Only drawback is if you don't arrive early enough you will miss getting your own hut and will have to share a common space with lots of other vistors. Once in the water, it's magical. The stingrays and reef sharks are fed twice daily... More

We had been snorkelling the previous day at Temae Beach and loved the fish life there. The Lagoonarium takes it to a whole other level. We were there for both feeding times (11.30am & 2pm) and getting up close with the rays and reef sharks was an amazing experience. The crew at the Lagoonarium are so charming and upbeat. We... More

We visited the Lagoonarium after reading it was the No1 attraction on Trip Advisor, and it totally lived up to this No 1 status. There were six of us in total including two kids (16 & 11) and spent the whole day there. Fantastic little bures for shelter and storage of stuff, well explained areas for snorkelling in, and amazing... More
