The whole half day trip from start to finish was fantastic. Snorkelling on the Reefs and ending with swimming with these amazing creatures in the enclosure at the Lagoonarium. Max our guide was brilliant.

Had a reservation for them to pick us up for a tour and they didn't show. Ruined one pre-planned day on our trip. Wouldn't use them.

This was a fun afternoon, swimming with the sharks and rays, which was weird but i felt totally safe there. It was very low key and enjoyable. . Very pretty location. They had a little show, which was fun, and it was an enjoyable and relaxing experience. I recommend booking directly with them, it was a lot cheaper.

I went here a few years back and was disappointed that a big part of it was the Tahitian equivalent of an petting aquarium. The kind of thing where they pick up the turtle or little shark in a contained area to pose with tourists. Knowing how this really stresses out an animal, I detest this kind of thing (I... More

This is the closer thing to diving. You can swim and snorkel with big sharks and stingrays and even touch the stingrays. It felt very safe. Definitely worth doing if you are in the area and don't get the opportunity to dive..

Our group only took the second half of the tour which was snorkeling in the fenced areas. Although very interesting, it wasn't really worth the price. We did see some exotic fish and we swan with about 8 lemon sharks. The tour guide was Max and he was very entertaining. If I had to do it again, I wouldn't do... More

We spent several hours snorkelling in the lagoonarium where we saw an abundance of fish. We have snorkelled at some amazing places around the world and this comes up high on our list.

Bob, Ray, and Max were outstanding tour guides. The crew were enthusiastic and entertaining. It was not a packed boat like others, more individualized. We really enjoyed the all day tour, with lunch. Highly recommend it.

This makes it really easy for those who have not snorkeled much, but hard to do this knowing that it's fake. It's like snorkeling in a local aquarium, but so many different varieties of fish and sea creatures!
