The Lagoonarium is an absolute MUST when visiting Moorea! Wilfred, the owner, and his darling dog, Tootsie, took us by boat and oriented us to the Lagoonarium, which is a shallow reef inhabited by thousands of fish, rays and sharks in which he built a system of ropes that allow you to keep from washing away with the strong current...

This is a very popular place where day trippers go to swim, snorkel and interact with the the sting rays and small [safe] sharks. The experience could be tacky or too touristy or smack of the marine zoo, but the clever owners manage to avoid all these pitfalls. it's a rather charming set up in a beautiful setting where the...

My husband and I went to the Lagoonarium while in Moorea for our honeymoon. We tried to think of something we didn't like about this experience, but honestly we couldn't think of anything. Wilfred and his assistant Henri (sp?) were very nice. You can tell that the rays are Wilfred's friends. They were a bit shy around us, but they... More

I've been coming to Moorea for almost 20 yrs and discovered the Lagoonarium only this year. OMG. I can't believe what a magical place this is to snorkel with the Rays, Sharks, Eels and beautiful tropical fish. Can't say enough for this place. Almost as good as the Motu Picnic with Zeke or Bruno...

Wilfred took us over to his island just before the 1130 feeding. We stashed our stuff in our personal bungalow then joined the others at the feeding site. It was amazing to see the rays and feel them brush up against us as they sought food from Wilfred. Also wonderful to see the black-tip sharks knifing through the water. Then... More

Back again to this great attraction. Wilfred is awesome, the marine life is so plentiful and tame! The stingrays actually want to be touched. The rope lines make snorkeling so easy even for inexperienced swimmers. An underwater camera is a must. Highlights - stonefish, stingrays, sharks and moray.

My wife and I are on our honeymoon and we just spent today with Wilfred in what can best be describe as a heavenly water wonderland. We have both been snorkeling many times in many places but this was an experience of a lifetime!!! We saw more sea life than you can imagine. We played with Rays, Sharks and Tootsie... More

Too many people on this tour. Boat was super crowded. Guide spoke mostly in French so we couldn't understand 90% of what he said. We went with Alberts tours but wished that we had done this tour with Hiroshima tours because his boat was not overcrowded and did the same thing. Swimming with the stingrays and sharks was great and... More

Cruise ship passengers anchored at Moorea (tender to Oponohu or Cook's Bay) should not try to go to Lagoonarium using their transportation from there. It is all the way on the other side of Moorea (45 minutes) and they did not show up even though I confirmed our arrival as they instructed me to do. If you have a day... More

We were lucky enough to get to Moorea a second time, and this was the one thing we did again. So glad we did! Last time the weather was windy and the seas rough. This time the weather was divine and we saw much more this time and with much less current. Wilfred has the best job in the world!... More
