We got to Lagoonarium around 9:30 and it was relatively uncrowded. We snorkeled peacefully, and saw an amazing variety of fish. The ropes that are provided around the coral really came in handy as the current picked up. I would highly recommend an early start as it was quite crowded by 11:00 "feeding time," and the current became rather strong... More

We spent the entire day - it was a fantastic experience! Like having your own little oasis. It was great that they gave you your own hut to use for the day. The fish, sharks and stingray were fabulous. When they feed them it is a glorious site! Highly recommend!

After seeing pictures and videos of this place and reading all the reviews, I knew it was a place we had to include in our itinerary...We were not disappointed!! We were picked up on the shore after paying at their trailer and we were of to one of the greatest adventures we have ever experienced. Marte greeted us and showed... More

Since the kids had gone off to do some real diving, we parents went for a couple of hours to see the Lagoonarium. We timed it to arrive about 1 hour before the first 'show' - they do them at 11:00 and 14:00, where a guy feeds the Black Tip Reef sharks, plays with 2 big Sting Rays, and a... More

Think of this place as an outdoor aquarium. Tons of reef sharks and sting rays (with their stingers removed) and lots of fish - but it has a bit of a zoo feel to it since the feeding of the fish makes it a very unnatural environment to see fish. But it does make it very easy for first time... More

Don't be fooled by the precarious appearance of the premises. Even after you take the boat ride you feel you overpaid, but wait until you see the "Feed the fish" activity to come to your final conclusion. Do NOT forget to bring your underwater camera. Memories will last forever.

This was easy, fun and very inexpensive. The water is completely clear and because it is a protected area the fish are big and pretty. They feed the local sharks and sting rays twice a day and it is so much fun. All of the accommodations are nice and the island is so well kept. It was a great birthday... More

Came here 4 years ago on my honeymoon and I loved it. My husband and I enjoyed it so much we recently came back to Tahiti, Moorea, Bora Bora. Wilfred has not changed. I think they built some new bungalows. Grounds are beautiful. We had a private bungalow to keep our belongs, We brought snacks, towles, extra change of clothes,... More

This place is definitely a must visit in Moorea. It is easy to get to and very affordable. Once on the island we were blown away by the amount of marine life- sharks, rays and fish. It is really abundant throughout the day but during the feeding time becomes something out of this world. The afternoon feeding is especially spectacular... More

Cool little island, gracious and happy hosts. We missed the feeding but who cares. More colorful fish per square meter than I have ever seen. Ropes are nice to have for the current. You don't need a beautiful day, the fish don' care if it's raining so go out there anyway.
