Lagoonarium, Moorea

4.8
#1 of 30 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. Lagoonarium is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Moorea Edition.

    The hospitality we know that you will live a great experience! Both human and animal. We had the chance to experience this with Joshua (I can't remember her name in Tahitian) who enjoy every day the pleasure of living a job really not like the others. Then of course some will say this is business! Of course. But when you're on vacation, or residents for a few years, that is what it means this hundred euros for a family of 4? The enthusiasm of Joshua that truly is in harmony with its rays, sharks and for our getaway a big beautiful Moray although gross's amazing twice a day he made the show in a natural aquarium while he makes more than 20 round trip to pick up tourists on Morea. Unforgettable moments. A tip leave your cameras and your go pro and just enjoy sharing this with nature.

    Places absolutely gorgeous friendly staff who answered questions if we take the trouble d ask. We had a fare to put our affairs and protect themselves from the Sun. The water is transparent you see passing the rays and sharks fish by the edge. It is even possible to make a kayak tour "for free" since c is included in the price. A child of 3 years she love to be able to touch the rays. Some deplore the ray but personally I have love see so many fish of rays of sharks in freedom and even a Moray. I also used the course in rope to go see the coral reef but was not recommended for children there are really a lot of current at this level. Short of 8: 00 a 16: 00 this is a very nice day children are happy and adults also.

  • 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
  • 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.
  • Beautiful motu, beautiful lagoon with a lot of fish, rays, and sharks. Suggested lunch meal is very good and the staff super helpful. Only big negative, it's a shame to have mutilated (cut the tails) of the lines for the small comfort of visitors! : - 2 stars.

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.
