I think that the business has been sold since the comments about great for beginners. Part of our problems might have been a rough sea day. I found very little instruction or help for the beginners in our group. For those who have snorkeled before they had a great day. I as a first timer found it very tiring. I... More

We went with Aquanature on a half-day snorkeling tour. The guides are marine biologists and they provide a lot of insightful information about the reef and the fish. Groups were of 8 persons maximum and they do both English and French tours. We stopped at two beautiful locations and we saw reef sharks, turtles, octopus, sea snakes, sea cucumber and... More

We booked a snorkling excursion with Aquanature when our cruise ship was in Noumea. We went to two different sites and the snorkling was great. Beautiful coral and lots of fish. We had a monitor in front and at the back of our group. It was very safe and easy for beginners and experienced snorklers also. Thank you Frederique and... More

I'm giving this a good rating based on previous reviews even though we couldn't go. We were on a cruise ship and had booked for 9 of us. We got up early, were off the ship and walked to the pier where Aquanature were waiting for us. Unfortunately bad seas were forecast, and they were concerned about our safety and... More

We were on a ship and our times in port did not jive with Aquanature's fixed schedule. There was a large enough group that they adapted their time to fit with our schedule. Thanks for that!! There was a mixed bag of experience levels from the "never beens" to the "have done it alls" and everyone was accommodated. Some chose... More

We did a half-day snorkelling tour with Aquanature and we highly recommend it. When it comes to swimming and snorkelling, I’m an utter novice and I had an amazing time.

I can highly recommend Aquanature. I am a rather nervous snorkeller. However, the crew put me at ease straight away. They offered support, extra equipment, anything I needed to feel at ease. We were placed into small groups of 6 with a highly experienced guide. I would never have spotted the wonderful turtles, sea snakes, eels without their expert guidance.... More
