Lagoonarium, Moorea

4.6
#1 of 9 in Parks in Moorea
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.

  • Good so the day begins with a canoe ride, time to get on the Motu Ahi where is located the lagonarium... On a small island of coral, some small dolls houses are asked, facing the sea... You can bring lunch and drinks, but there is coffee and tea! The fish are there... just down the scale... and around 11:30 the owner arrives with his bucket of fish and bread... And is there, that the wonderful happens! Rays stingray, carnage, sharks, black tip, mules... And it is also the coral garden, to visit following the ropes between the buoys... In short, it's another day of happiness ;-)

  • It was really cool to swim with the sharks and sting rays. We booked it through our hotel intercontinental which arranged for pick up and entrance fee - everything included cost $100 per person which ...  more »
  • It is worth spending the day on the islet. The marine life is varied and well worth the snorkelling there and the interaction with the stingrays

  • This place was the highlight of our trip. Absolutely gorgeous!
  • Tons of fish, rays and black tip reef sharks. Beautiful corals. Starts with a feeding show where staff feed and interact with the sea life then they open it up and everyone can swim and explore and interact, but guests don't get to feed.
  • Wilfred has done an incredible job with this place. It might be dated but that's the allure. He has made his own little piece of heaven on earth and wants to share it with the world
  • Very unpleasant experience with the people manning the lagoonarium. She was flat out rude!
  • Amazing experience here swimming with sharks and stingrays. Hope to visit again one day!

Where to stay in Moorea

On Mo'orea, even the budget accommodations enjoy prime beachfront locations on beautiful turquoise lagoons. Camping is the most affordable option, mainly concentrated in the northwest of the island. Family-run pensions (boarding houses) can also offer great, no-frills, budget-friendly lodging--although finding contact details and booking can take a little effort. The biggest draw on Mo'orea, however, remain the luxury beach resorts and overwater bungalows on the lagoons, mostly strung across the island's northern edge. Prices for these start in the mid range, but climb quickly into the high end for the most lavish options.
