The sea life that congregate for the feedings is unbelievable. My wife and I swam through literally a solid mass of such including sharks and manta rays. The non-feeding snorkeling was pretty good too, and all in all it's a once in a lifetime experience worth the crowds and sizeable entrance fee.

My wife and I enjoyed this immensely . Quick boat ride to a motu ( 3 minutes) where they have set up small shelters for privacy and relaxing, between snorkeling trips. They have set up ropes to hold onto along a colorful, fish-filled reef. This is good because of strong currents. At 11:30 and 1:30 they feed the stingrays, fish,... More

It was a gentle introduction to sharks. There are shallow pools with rays and turtles. But the ultimate treat was that first snorkel/float in the lagoons with the black tip sharks floating underneath. It is crystal clear water and visibility was 20/20. I have to admit to fear and uncertainty when I stepped into the pool, but it was such... More

My family and I stopped off at the Lagoonarium on the 12th April 2015 when we visited Moorea on a cruise to Hawaii. The Lagoonarium was the most amazing place I've ever visited in the Pacific. Wilfred who I dubbed the Steve Irwin of Moorea picked us up from Moorea with his outrigger boat and took us to his Motu.... More

Idyllic snorkeler's paradise with electric colors, vibrant reefs, lots of fish, stingrays. Great fun and a good stop while on Moorea. It is just off the beach near Afafeaitu.

What a great experience from the boat ride over to the excellent workers. Awesome experience and a must for anybody that enjoys snorkeling with sharks/ stingrays etc.. Hands on experience with the stingrays was really cool. Knowledgable staff. We spent 4 hours at the place with our own little hut. Bring a cooler over full of beverages and snacks of... More

An experience of a lifetime! You get knee deep with sting rays while they are fed. Everything is very safe. You get to pet them and feed them if you want. After the sting rays, you swim further in the water to see the sharks and other beaufitul fish. But be careful, there is quite a bit of current there... More

This was a fantastic stop on our drive around the Island. It was a little exxy but well worth it (I guess that is a contradiction, but I would do it again). The staff on the boat and the little island were friendly and full of interesting facts. The scenery was to die for. Views back to Tahiti, beautiful clear... More
