If in French Polynesia, this is an attraction that you should not misss. Even though the fish are enclosed in the water, with a fence, it gives a good idea of what is in the warm and inviting waters that surround you. Also available before visiting the Lagoonarium, you can take an amazing opportunity to swim with sharks, in the... More

Having read other reviews we decided to visit. Wilfred is great and makes the day fascinating - he is friendly and helpful. The lagoon is amazing with loads of different fish to see. Got so engrossed the time just disappeared. Definitely should visit if you can.

I am not a strong swimmer and the snorkel guide was lovely. She stayed with me, pointed to what I should be seeing and moved me along at a nice pace. The fish were plentiful, colorful and very diverse. Saw a large lemon shark deep in the water - was very exciting. a must visit location!!

We went with a small tour boat, giving us a more intimate experience, which I highly recommend versus some of the boats we saw with tons of tourists on them. The rays are tame & are fed regularly by the guides, so they are very docile & will graze your body looking for snacks they are regularly fed. Shark swim... More

You get to have a little huts where you can put all your belongings,its worth going there and stay all day you won't want to leave it's a magical place. Feeding... More

Really really cool. The guy who worked here was amazing and so brave! He was like a fish out there! I saw so many fish, it was incredible. He brought birds down, he showed us the sting rays then you hold on to a rope and swim into the reefs. It was honestly a really good show. He dived under... More

Whatever else you do, don't miss The Lagoonarium. This tiny islet is a lifetime labor of love. The owner will pick you up in his little boat and take you there, where you'll have the most amazing day snorkling with an incredible array of fish, sting rays (sans barbs!), etc. Everyone gets their own little grass hut where you can...

This place is amazing! It rained during our trip but it doesn't affect the visibility at all. The huts are cute and provide a nice relaxation area when you need a rest. Also, the views from the beach are excellent! We enjoyed swimming with the fish, sharks and rays. The coral was great too. Great low prices too. Don't miss... More

We made a trip to Wilfred's lagoonarium in December 2014, and left in complete awe and excitment (despite a rainy day). Wilfred is a renaissance man that works so hard to ensure tourists enjoy themselves on his island and lagoonarium. I highly recommend any visitor to Moorea check out this amazing attraction and experience Wilfred's amazing hospitality. Before the trip... More

Quite a nice place to mingle with locals the buffet was fair, the view nice, but the lagoonarium aquarium was closed for renovations, too bad.
