The service, the experience blew us away! Got there early so we had our own hut to keep our gear in and have a rest in between snorkelling. Our favourite activity in Moorea. If you love the underwater world you have to visit Lagoonarium!

The rave reviews on TripAdvisor led us here. We saw immediately that every single one of these reviews need to be prefaced by saying that this place is for kids and families. There was at least a 3 to 1 ratio of kids to adults. As a 7-year old, I would have been thrilled to leave a hotel pool and... More

This is the best! Get there early so you can reserve one of the huts if you are planning to make a full day of it. Just pack your own picnic basket as their food is kind of expensive. Make sure you take plenty of water too. It doesn't sound like a big deal from the advertising, especially if you... More

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!
