What to Expect
The ‘Lagoon Explorer’ is a 120 minute excursion beginning at the beach in front of KiteSUP, and heading out into the lagoon and clockwise around the island. Please check in at our KiteSUP Office the day before the tour to confirm start time (usually 12pm), as it may change depending on weather and ocean conditions. There is no previous experience required for this tour, and is suitable for all audiences.

We will all meet at our beach Shed on Muri Beach, and begin with a safety briefing, run through of the equipment to be used, as well as an introduction to paddling within the lagoon on your vessel of choice. All required equipment for the tour is provided, but feel free to bring your own.

You will first set out to explore the beautiful and expansive Muri lagoon, then head to one of the motus (islands) where your tour guide will ensure everybody is comfortable, and share with you some local knowledge about mainland and motus. You will then continue to explore the lagoon down the coastline into the Marine Reserve, with advice on what you may see and where best to paddle. Once in the Reserve, you will be taken on a small guided snorkel tour around coral nurseries, many colourful and varied pacific fish, giant clams, and even swim with the magnificent giant trevallies. If you’re lucky, we may see the local turtles and Roger our giant moray Eel!

No doubt you’ll have worked up an appetite, so we’ll paddle straight to shore for a pickup and drive back to “Deli-Licious” for a well-earned lunch!

We cater for all types of groups, including weddings, hens & stag parties, and families wanting to do something new and different.

Loved every minute of the tour. Luca was so cool. Didn't rush us and took the time to tell us stories and answer questions. We really got value for money as they provide lunch as well. Recommend to anyone and everyone 👌🏽
