My family and I spent almost 4 hours at the Lagoonarium - it was that amazing! The stingray's were just so friendly and swimming in amongst them with black tip fin sharks and thousands of tropical fish was a wonderful experience! We have amazing footage of our day on our GoPro - recommend you bring one with you, as well... More

Do not be scared of the Sharks, they are very friendly. The rays are so interesting to watch getting fed( watch the feeders ride the Rays). Very safe as you can hold onto to a rope to go around the whole lagoonarium, and see amazing corals and fish. Kids love it and also learn some about the Rays. Buy a... More

Definitely worth visiting if you are staying on Moorea. But make sure you go during the feeding times which are 11.30am and 2pm (You need to be there by I think 11 & 1.30 at the latest in order to get out to the motu). You can see sharks and stingrays up close and even touch them! It is very... More

The guys were fluent in English, they were warm, accommodating and very friendly. The snorkelling was amazing, best seen in moorea. The Sharks and Rays won't be forgotten in a hurry- so much more affordable and relaxed than doing a formal tour. The initial sting ray feeding in the shallows was a bit crowded but if you hang on for... More

The Lagoonarium is no good if you are one of those tourists who want to be huddled with dozens of other tourists and do a group thingy. Do it if that's your thing! Don't get me wrong, the experience for a first timer is great, but we had a better experience in the other motu's near the west side of... More

This was a true highlight of our trip. Swimming with the sharks and stingrays and all of the beautiful fish was so exciting!

If you love snorkeling or even if you don't it is a worry free environment and very easy. You hang on to a rope the hole time and you so lots of really cool fish. You can touch rays and see a bunch of reef sharks at feeding time. I totally recommend it.

Fun trip. Got up close and personal with sharks, rays, and fish. Got boring after about an hour, so we left after that. Staff were very friendly. No lockers but there are little guts to store your things. It was cool, but nothing extraordinary. The kids there were loving it.

The highlight of this place is the stingrays you can pat and being in very close proximity to the small black tip reef sharks. There are also lots of colourful tropical fish of all sizes. There is no need to fear the sharks as they are not interested in people just in being fed at the feeding time. The stingrays... More
