Our guide, Nicholas, was helpful, friendly, patient....everything you could want in a guide and the snorkeling was the best I'd ever experienced. The feed the fish at the reef while you're there and so you are immediately surrounded by reef sharks, manta rays, trumpet fish and thousands of other beautiful marine life. Nicholas guided us along the reef, pointing out... More

You simply have to do it! My boyfriend and I were just in awe by the end of the day-such great snorkelling and the feedings were fascinating! The staff were very friendly and helpful and you receive your own small hut for the day for getting changed/escaping the midday sun for a while. Coolest activity ever!

The coral garden is amazing and the animals are not caged as I thought before the visit. But I am not a fan of this shark, fish and sting ray feeding shows.

Take the short boat ride out to the little island with private day bungalows and see the ray and fish feeding and swim and snorkel with the sharks and rays. Well worth it

What an amazing experience visiting the Lagoonarium! We rented a car for the day from our hotel and drove around the island to the Lagoonarium where we parked, paid for our tickets and were ferried by small boat over to the island. We arrived around 10am and it was not crowded. We brought our own snorkel gear and water shoes... More

This is a great place to spend the day and see lots of fish, sting rays, and black tip sharks. Go early so you can get a hut because there is not much shade on this island. You can buy lunch there but it's easier and cheaper to bring your own. Don't miss the feeding at either 11am or 2... More

Most attractive colours of fishes, rays, sharks, eels, etc. So precious to be able to feel the rays. And most helpful guide.

Feeding times are at 11am and 2pm. Make sure you're there for at least one of them. They last about 30min each. Swarms of fish will come by and you will be amazed at the underwater world!! After the feeding you can snorkel around the area to see the corals using the guided ropes so it's very safe even if... More

An absolutely charming experience in the safest way possible. Wilfred and his business is well deserving of the top attraction of Moorea and not of any negative feedback. He was a splendid character who made us feel like valued customers. It's the sea, expect a current! I'm not a strong swimmer and was in no danger at any point. These... More

We went by boat for the short trip to the motu where this is located. The gentleman who fed the fish went above and beyond any similar attraction. This is a one off as we have never seen so many rays, sand sharks and fish of every description right next to us. Amazing in every way. The little huts are... More
