Departing directly from Noumea's cruise terminal, this half-day tour offers a chance to see the wild side of one of the world's largest lagoons. Head to Signal Island, a quiet white-sand island which few tourists take the time to visit. Swim in water frequented by turtles and see colorful corals and reef fish. Arrive back in Port refreshed in the early afternoon, leaving plenty of time to see the sights in Noumea.

Private Half-Day Sailing Tour from Noumea
5 reviews
Get a group together and avoid Noumea's crowded water taxis on this half-day catamaran journey. Departing Noumea, your boat sets sail for Escapade Island, crossing the world's largest lagoon on the way. Discover gardens of coral teeming with colorful reef fish and, if you’re lucky, meet giant clams and green sea turtles. Although many visitors to Noumea are content to snorkel from the shore, a boat allows snorkelers to see parts of the reef that most people miss.

Private Noumea Turtle Tour
4 reviews
Skid from your cruise ship to a bouncy water taxi and skip across the water to Signal Island, a quieter snorkeling location. Take your mind off National Park fees and taxes and focus on the important things: coral in blue water, the ponderous paddles of turtles. This small private tour gets you into the water without extra hassle.

Great location - enough time to walk around the island (slowly) and snorkel. The waters were a bit churned up due to the weather conditions but it did not spoil the underwater viewing too much. The weather (wind and waves) made for an interesting, bumpy...More

There is a supermarket called Casino...just over the road from the cruise terminal..pop over there and grab some things. Or there is a café in the terminal where you can buy food and drink.
