    Good experience, although to get up so up close and personal with dolphins it is clear that, unfortunately, have to be trained. the cost is high but is one of the very few places where you can enjoy this wonderful experience. Also photos and movies have a major cost but the quality and the memories are priceless.

    A very nice time with young children but probably better with children more great because you can swim with dolphins. However my daughters were on a cloud to caress and play with a dolphin

    I was a guest at the hotel and I saw the Dolphinarium, but 150 to paddle with dolphins locked up it's not worth it to me. There are recently on Moorea a new attraction that offers swimming with dolphins in the freedom I have not yet made but it is programmed.

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.
