We visited Lagoonarium the day after going on the Moorea Miti tour, which I preferred. In both experiences we got to swim with sharks and rays, which was a great experience, but, the Lagoonarium was really crowded with people when we were there. Because the current is very strong there, most of the time you have to hang on to... More

Go now! It's worth it! I snorkeled with sharks, stingrays, and fishes. I had a great time just make sure you bring snacks.

This was by far the best tour of our cruise on Carnival Legend. We did it ourselves as soon as we were ashore the 4 of us caught a taxi to the Lagoonarium office. We paid extra for lunch which was excellent. It was fantastic I love snorkelling and this was by far the most amazing experience ever! At first... More

This was absolutely amazing. And you can easily do it on your own--no need to book it with a tour group! You pay at the small kiosk by the side of the road--approx $30 US pp and they take you on a short boat ride to a small island. There they have toilets, fresh water, and small cabanas to put... More

We rented a Jeep one day and drove around the island and stopped here on our way around. This was one of the coolest experiences we had on the trip! Laid back atmosphere and you can go for as long as you want to snorkel. We got there around 10 and snorkeled around for a while before the shark and... More

This a friendly place for couples or family with kids. Feeding the fish, Rays and Sharks is fun. 3 Hours will be more than enough, be sure to take with you snack and food. If you have beach shoes and snorkeling gear take them with or you can rent them at the lagoon.

Unfortunately my wife and I visited the Lagoonarium the day after having a private charter take us around the island of Moorea to feed sharks, swim with the rays and snorkel. Because this attraction is so popular be prepared to be one of 50 or so people. You might think this is good except for the fact that the Lagoonarium... More

Arriving to Moorea Island , in French Polynesia, you can see the most amazing place for people who like snorkeling. You can swim with rays , sharks and thousands of different fishes in an exclusive island. We arrived at 7 am , we rent a car to get there but they can get you from the port in a van.... More

We were on a 14 days Cruise with the Paul Gauguin, all over the French Polynesia Islands. We Scuba dived in many places along the way enjoying it and thought it was awesome.....however the Lagoonarium had more clearer water, and the most amazing sea life. We were there for the feeding of 2 pm, and were blown away. A must... More
