First, before I start complaining :), let me say that service part was great. ALL of their employees were extremely friendly and accommodating, lagoonarium grounds are well kept and nicely setup and some activities are really fun. Now, one thing for you to know is that if you go there in the morning, before they take you to lagoonarium, they... More

We booked the half day tour and all we 'missed out on' was a BBQ lunch. The coral was gorgeous, the fish were plentiful, and being able to swim with rays and sharks was incredible (coming from someone who isn't really into animals). At the end I got to grab onto a shark and ride on top of it underwater....very... More

The tour itself was VERY fun...only thing that kind of left a sour taste in my mouth is that while we were waiting for other guest to arrive one of the tour guides walked up to everyone that was waiting and looked at myself and my boyfriend and said "What.... you're black? YOU'RE BLACK?" Are African Americans not allowed to... More

We had a really fun day on this tour. We swam with sharks and rays and visited the coral gardens. At the gardens, hundreds of tropical fish swam all around us. During our boat ride around the island, we were entertained with music, jokes and stories about Bora Bora and Polynesia. The guys leading the tour are extremely charismatic. After... More

Bora Bora Lagoonarium was an experience recommended for all visitor to Bora Bora. Not many places in the world where a visitor can swim with the stingray or shark in a safe environment. We had tried the same experience in the open sea but required expert to accompanied our small group. Beside the beautiful surrounding, beaches, fine sands and sunshine.... More

We didn't like the way the animals are treated in this sort of "private" aquarium: fishes are taken out of the water, tour guides "ride" nurse Sharks and so on. We also didn't like the pranks and jokes used to entertain guests, not suitable for small children. My advice is take an Island tour and do it all (Sharks, rays,... More

This is a really great tour for snorkelers and those wanting to see reef life in the lagoon. The reef is healthy and teeming with at least 20 different species of brightly colored fish. Also saw eagle rays, stingrays (dozens) and black tipped reef sharks. I like the reef trip prior to getting to the Lagoonarium itself. The Lagoonarium features... More
