Worth a visit
Mar. 2020 • Family
Loved the island. Lunch was delicious, plenty of variety. The lighthouse was open, and most of our group ventured to the top. Gift shop had a good selection.
The snakes were gorgeous, they ignore you if you ignore them. YES there's a lot of them, but they are seriously chill. No signs of noticing you, and as they say - highly poisonous but never has a bite has occurred on the island.
Very pretty place.
If you don't want to snorkel, swim, or chat with friends/family, this is not the place for you. If you want non stop entertainment, pick something else. If you want a lovely scenic day out, this is the right choice.

4回連続日程をキャンセルされた Canceled 4 times in a row
Mar. 2020
English follows Japanese.

個人(少人数)での予約はお勧めしません。団体での予約が優先されるようです。もし個人で予約される際には、日程変更は覚悟のうえでお申し込みください。

私たちは4回連続でツアーをキャンセルされ、結局は参加直前で一方的にツアー不催行が決定されたため参加できませんでした。

キャンセル理由の内訳は、団体旅行客の予約が入ったため、参加人数が足りなくなったため、等です。新型コロナウイルスの影響など、仕方がない部分もあるのかもしれませんが、これだけ振り回された挙句、直前でキャンセルされれば評価が悪くなるのは当然かと思います。

Individual (small number of people) bookings are not recommended. Group reservations seem to have priority. If you make an individual reservation, please be prepared to be changed the schedule.

In our case, this tour was canceled 4 times in a row, and we were not able to participate because the tour company told us unilaterally that they would not conduct the tour.

The reason why the tours were canceled was that there was a reservation for a group tour after our reservation and the number of participants was not enough, etc.

Amazing day trip and a highlight of New Caledonia!
Feb. 2020
We visited Amedee Island on 27th February and had a fantastic time on the Mary D daytrip. The boat ride out was comfortable with great views of Noumea as we were departing. It took about 45 mins to get to the island, which is quite small but beautiful. We hired snorkel and mask and went snorkelling in the lagoon and saw the local fish life, along with a turtle! Swimming in the ocean next a turtle was a once in a lifetime experience. It was amazing to be so close! The buffet lunch was excellent with a wide range of food choices available. We climbed the top of the lighthouse and enjoyed the stunning views. All the staff were very helpful and in particular Wallis on reception in Anse Vata went out of her way to answer all our questions! Highly recommended to all travellers to New Caledonia!

Lovely day trip
Really lovely day. The Mary D Seven was a large comfortable boat with air conditioning for the 45 min journey (yay). The lighthouse climb was a bit of hard work with an exceptional view at the top so very worth the climb. The lunch was a very tasty buffet with lots of options for vegetarians which was appreciated. The snorkelling was great although not as much coral reef as the other islands. Loads of turtles around for swimming with if you missed them at Escapade island. Really enjoyable day overall

Amazing Piece of paradis just before the great barrier of reef
Feb. 2020 • Family
Go for one day full of island adventure, and culture with a very nice seafood buffet .
You can dive on the spot , feed the fish, learn how to go up Coconut tree and how to cut a coconut fruit for drink or food.
Then for lunch you will test the seafood buffet with a nice and traditional dancing show on this amazing beach.
Everybody is eating together and this is real nice to meet people that day.
Finally you may depending if the day for for a shark feeding behind the reef!

A Must Do New Caledonia Highlight
Jan. 2020 • Solo
After my less than perfect snorkel experience at Duck Island, I was looking forward to this and I must say I was not disappointed. It begins with a great boat ride from Port Moselle and if you’re staying at a major hotel, transfer to and from the port is included.

As soon as you arrive you can immediately see some of the most crystal clear waters and coral reefs anywhere. There is plenty of time for the water experience throughout the day long adventure. You can snorkel and paddle board.

And there is the lighthouse too. I wouldn’t call myself a well conditioned athlete, but I made the climb just by pacing myself. The views are majestic and well worth the climb. Although I have a fear of heights, the climb to the top is comfortable and I am glad I made the effort.

A magnificent buffet lunch is provided along with some really good cultural entertainment.

If I do ever come back to Noumea, I would certainly do it again.

PS. Lots of sea snakes around, but they’re very timid and more afraid of you.

Unmissable
Jan. 2020 • Friends
This was the highlight of our trip to noumea! The tour was smoothly and professionally run, with fantastic guides. Lunch was brilliant and it was great to have the traditional dancing and music show. It looked like the guides were also having a brilliant time. It did seem as though most of the activities were geared towards French speakers. Our English speaking glass bottom boat tour took place at the same time as the island tour and the coconut tree climbing, as I think these were carried in French. This wasn’t too much of a problem for us though.

The island itself had the brilliant aqua water you see in the tourist brochures and we were lucky enough to snorkel alongside three green turtles, which made our whole trip! The climb up to the lighthouse gave brilliant views of the island and lagoon and is definitely worth the extra money- which was only about $3 or $4 Australian dollars, although we felt this could have possibly been included in the price of the tour.

We did see a couple of sea snakes, but they seemed to be doing their best to avoid people and certainly weren’t a problem at all. As we visited in late January, it seemed as though there were far fewer snakes than during other times of the year.

Overall a fantastic day trip and unmissable for any visitor to noumea.
