Black tips, Morey's, Rays, Triggerfish, Clownfish, etc. are all present in abundance at this location. If you do not scuba dive, this place will get you the closest experience possible to the joys of scuba. THe island has several huts that you can hang out in for the day. My reccomendation would be to bring a snack or lunch and... More

Went there on the day of the public holiday in Tahiti i was there on the business trip. A couple of friends decided to have a visit there in Moorea. Its a family run snorkling located on one of the lagoon off the Moorea island. It takes about 7-10min by longboat from Moorea to reach that lagoon. They provided the... More

I was a little concerned about this place, worrying that it would be rundown and that the coral would all be dead because of all the people that were coming in and out of the attraction. This was not to be the case. First off, there were not many people and the coral was all alive and teeming with fish.... More

My wife and I spend a full day there at the first of February, 2016. Since there was heavy raining in the early morning and clouds later in the morning the place was really empty. Including us there were only 6 guests and after lunch only the 2 of us remained, while the sun came out. What I liked: +... More

A family run operation that couldn't have been better. At first, I was dismissive of all the ropes -- thinking that I was a better swimmer than that. However, the location is over a current and the ropes are necessary. As a result of being in the current, there were more fish in one location than we'd every seen before... More

My wife and I hit this place as the last adventure of our honeymoon and OMG are we glad we didn't miss it! Believe all of the other reviews in that this is a "must see". Never in... More

I really enjoyed my time at the Lagoonarium , I loved the casual beachcomber feel and the lack of commercial over load. As with most things on Moorea you enjoy the attraction at your own speed, lingering or moving on as you like . Don't expect Sea World just enjoy nature.

We stayed at the InterContinental in Tahiti. This is an easy and safe place to snorkel. First time snorkelers and young children would benefit from using this facility.

The highlight of our trip! This place is incredible. I've enjoyed diving and snorkeling all of my life and this place has more marine life in a small area than anywhere I have ever been. You arrive and park and take a small boat across the channel to the island/lagoonarium. You can stay as long or as short as you... More

My wife and I have snorkeled multiple Hawaii Islands, Cancun, and locally, Mo'orea Hilton and Intercontinental. None of them stand up to the Lagoonarium. When asking for a genuine Island experience, we were asked, "Are you going to Bora Bora?" Not this time, we replied, we visited there 4 years ago. Ah, then...you will love Lagoonarium! Indeed, if you've ever... More
