#1 of 37 in Parks in French Polynesia
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.

  • A definite must! Swim with sharks and rays, touch the latter, see a variety of fish and corals... happen every day! Downside: local guide who fed the fish and brings you the lines that you're is perhaps a bit excessive (end is not Sea World, but a lagoon next to the ocean...) and it spoils a little nature atmosphere in this place it. positive Point: the center guide scuba diving of the Sofitel which was very nice and very friendly! In addition, he took excellent photos throughout the morning and he stopped to show us the dolphins.

  • We just get us on the dock and off you go to the motu and the discovery of large and small fish... We had la.chance to have a bungalow to install our business... Great location, the explanations regarding the motu are interesting... and the best of the best! Go to the lagoon... we hold a string because there is power... and whouaaa it is the paradise of fish, rays, sharks (black tip)... A great experience... Suitable for people who are a little afraid of the water, or can not swim! Go! you will love!

  • Nice trip. Gun to swim with sharks & rays. Trip was just the right length of time... not too long but plenty of time to snorkel. Boat ride out there was beautiful. Great views of the island.  more »

  • This was a great place to explore some shallow reefs by snorkelling. I was afraid of sharks, but overcame this by swimming near very disinterested black-tipped reef what. It was great to see the wild life, but they seem quite tame and the kids loved it. A great experience!
  • The lagoonarium wasna great place to spend the day. Go early and get in on the feedings, the Ray's and reef shark where so much fun to swim with. Great place for family. Bring a lunch or purchase one with tickets. Recommend having life jackets for little ones as the current is a but tough for them to swim with in the coral gardens.
  • A great place to spend a whole day. But come early to get a hut at no additional cost. You can bring your own food and drinks or buy something there.
  • Beautiful spot and friendly people.
  • 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.
