Me and partner did daytrip March 2017. It was worth it, the island was beautiful. Staff were fantastic. It is well worth the money and for what you get seems like good value. Highly recommend this tour.

The steps were a challenge but with a few rests the view from the top was well worth the effort. Great photo opportunities. Would have like an English version of the history of the light house. The admission fee was acceptable knowing it was worth for the upkeep of the light house.

We went with the MaryD team and had a great day. Crew were all friendly and helpful. Buffet lunch was terrific - lots to choose from, quality food and a huge spread. Views from top of lighthouse were worth the climb. Snorkeling is pretty good - close to shore is sand and sea grass, you need to head out towards... More

Do it and just go with the flow. Went with Mary D tour group. Terrific. Magical day. Great snorkelling and huge lunch with wine and dances. Don't worry about the snakes it's the triggerfish you need to watch. They get territorial and can attack. Despite their small size they have large teeth. Lots of turtles, giant fish, tiny fish.

We were very well looked after. Beautiful place. Great lunch. We borrowed the free snorkelling gear and had fun swimming. We even saw a turtle when out in the glass bottom boat.

This was our best day in Noumea! An excellent tour, so well organised and professional. Great snorkelling and was easy to swim out straight from the beach. Suitable for everyone, we had an 18months old and they were very accommodating. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. The whole day provides a range of experiences including the snorkelling, lighthouse... More

We have been to the island twice December 2016 and Jan 2017. I cannot recommend it highly enough as a perfect day out for couples and for families.

The island has a great sandy beach - as it should - and there are lots of rocks in the water so have water shoes. We didn't climb the lighthouse, but it looked inviting. The island was crowded and chaise lounges were in short supply. I suggest you bring something to float on as snorkeling was very poor. If all... More

Dear client Thank you for submitting this review, we are sorry that you did not find the snorkeling good enough inspite of the fact that this is a protected marine reserve and fishes and corals are in abundance on the reefs that are around the island, if you stayed in the sandy parts, you are liable to see the turtles...
