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.

  • 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.
