Zoo / Aquarium
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.

  • What an experience !! We were picked up at the Manava Resort and taken to the ferry dock. Twenty minutes later we arrived at the Lagoonarium. We got off the skiff and fought the current to the shore. ...  more »
  • It is a major tourist site if you come on moorea. After a small crossing on a traditional vaa, without oars! You arrive on a small island called motu here. Your driver is also your guide on this small piece of land. He will give some instructions and guide you on the important points. (rental of masks and snorkel if necessary, small restaurant if you want to eat after taking a bath of sea, a corner shower and wc). Depending on the number of people you can benefit (included in the price) of a small fare to take a NAP, lulled by the sound of the waves. But let's get to the essential, fish and other species. All everyday at 11:30 and 14:00, your guide jumps into the water with her bucket full of fish. And that's where the show begins, in the air and in the water! I would no more so not to spoil you this time. Once completed, you can swim along (very significant in the case of current) strings. Besides to the extent possible, choose a day or the sea is calm, otherwise, for people whose swimming is not their favorite sport, it can become a little sporty! As a rough guide. It costs 3400 francs or 28 euros for an adult. Enjoy and don't forget the sunscreen!

  • We arrived at the place with a rental car and Wilfred the owner of the island came to search with your boat, we arrived at the island in 5 min, and we feel like in a film, they assigned us a small cabin (typical construction there made by his father and later maintained by the) to be able to rest during the day and leave our things quickly taught us the island and told us that it fed 2 times a day to fish 11.30 and 14.30 h which closed to the public at 16.30 h and q the took us when we would like to return to Moorea. A Mr fantastic Bohemian and lover of his work, the Tamer of fish like me call you, the rays and sharks already you wait when it comes to food and looked like dogs following him above all rays one Ivette to 16 years that gave him to eat, the most surprising, was how it was also feeding morays (2) to come out of its hole and caressed them as if it were a dog, to them 4 years ago that feeds them. The fish live in total freedom and without being in any enclosure without would not have gone. They feed on the dead fish and coral that is there same Reef that gives Wilfred. Furthermore explained us that who wanted to could spend the night there if you bring your food and your sleeping bag, during the day can take your picnic or eat there a unique and rich menu that prepares you a lady about €12 aprox per person.

  • 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
  • Amazing experience here swimming with sharks and stingrays. Hope to visit again one day!
  • Probably one of the main attraction in Moorea. I stayed there about 5 hours.
  • The amount of fish, rays and sharks who come to the infeed zone is impressive.
