i have been coming to New Caledonia for some years now and found this lagoon to be one of the best snorkel locations, what makes this location so good is the staff that man the boat and take you out, guide you over the lagoon and show all the different fish and mammals.... my last trip in April 2017 was...

We did this tour as a shore package for a P&O cruise in March 2017. Everything about this tour was top notch. Valerie and Roberto were very friendly and professional. They each led a group snorkeling and made sure everyone was comfortable in the water (quality wetsuits and snorkeling gear). They also educated on what we were looking at.

Valerie and Roberto were fantastic to deal with in booking - Valerie is hot on the email and happy to help! - the boat and snorkelling gear was great. The actual snorkelling was I think the best I have ever done and I really didn't think I would ever top some of the incredible Great Barrier Reef sights. An incredible... More

We did this from a cruise ship tour as other reviewers have as well and were very impressed. Very professional and helpful. Good quality equipment (snorkels, masks, flippers, and wet suits). The two guides were clearly out to make this a special experience. They split into two groups and one guide went with each group - finding stuff and then... More

I really liked the fact that these guys are passionate about what they're doing and care about the reef and the life on it, and do their best to pass this on. We were a family with mixed levels of experience, and we all enjoyed ourselves. Some of the shorty wetsuits were a little tired. They did have vests with... More
