Lagoonarium, Moorea
(4.3/5 based on 750+ reviews on the web)
Swim with rays, sharks, and tropical fish at Lagoonarium, a protected underwater environment off the coast of Moorea. Take a three-minute boat trip out to the reserve before plunging beneath the waters to inspect the marine life so abundant in French Polynesia. An untouched coral garden provides the backdrop for your views, and the helpful and friendly staff remain on hand to inform, entertain, and assist you during your experience. Bring your own snorkeling gear, or rent what you need. An onsite cafe serves food, although you are also welcome to bring your own picnic. Lagoonarium is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Moorea Edition.

  • During our visit to the Lagoonarium we had taken advantage of renting a car, to make the tour of the island, we stop 3 / 4 hours for lunch and have a good time, our view? Very very good time, arrived by boat canoe on the small motu where small bungalows are waiting for us to drop our stuff, beautiful place for snorkelling, we lunch on the spot, on the menu: chicken has pineapple and rice with vegetables: top! The same for the people who run this place: adorable a Council: don't miss this place!

  • This is a great place to spend the day and see lots of fish, sting rays, and black tip sharks. Go early so you can get a hut because there is not much shade on this island. You can buy lunch there but...  more »
  • We happened by accident while we ride by scooter was a very nice experience you reach lagunarium a with a small canoe you are really one of the nicest places we have visited all over moorea. Flooded nary a way where you can see many fish and sharks black and races, very funny the Piña when Eat Fishing during which a boy to feed the sharks and stingrays and carry and is very quaint and you can admire many species up close.

  • Took the ferry from tahiti to moorea to explore this site. This is a fair place to snorkel. It is an area roped off with several lines and floats to stay between. The current was so strong that we had to hold onto the ropes continuously. Water was quite stirred up; however did see variety of fish. Nice accommodations of a beach hut and chairs. We brought a picnic lunch; however, there is a small cafe on the island. Admission costs: about $35. Taxi to get to lagoonarium from ferry $15. Ferry from papeete, tahiti: $30. These costs are approximate as converted from local currency. Must use local payment for admission to lagoonarium. Staff transported back to ferry which was about 5 miles. Hint: try to make arrangements with staff at lagoonarium to pick up at ferry. The moorea lagoonarium was not worth the trip from tahiti.
  • It's closed permanently. The owner confirmed it to me today. They need to do alot of renovation in order to reopen.
  • Typical and authentic. Absolutely do.
