Pre phoned on the Thursday from Papeete ( information bureau ) only to be told , " not open on Saturdays " . When I asked the person representing the lagoonarium if they... More

Just bike or walk over to the very sturdy ladder and slip into the cool water. It isn't horribly deep - 10-15feet, maybe 20 in spots. The towel hut also provides complimentary snorkel gear. The lagoon circles a motu which houses the spa. So you can't get lost - just go in a circle. There were some fish - not... More

What a great excursion. We scheduled a half day which basically only lost us lunch and some extra time swimming. My wife and I were picked up at the dock across from our hotel and got a nice ride in the back of a tour jeep enroute to the lagoonarium boat dock. Two brothers, Bobby, the boat captain and Max,...

This was an experience of a lifetime. Swimming with such magnificent creatures up close is something we've never experienced and will remember forever

Our guide, Nui, is multilingual and fun to be around. He is knowledgeable about the areas we went to and very accommodating. He, along with other guides from the same company, provided us with lunch time entertainment, giving us a lesson in tying a Pareo, explaining how to make "plates" out of coconut leaves, how to open and grate a...

Snorkel with tropical fish among the coral reef, bask on the beach, or just enjoy the beautiful weather. This might be the prettiest spot on earth

Bora Bora in French Polynesia is difficult to get to but is South Seas Heaven. When here snorkelling is a must and the Lagoonarium is the place to swim with sharks and Rays. Very exhilarating.

The swim with sharks was not as good as Moorea as the water was cloudier at Bora Bora due to so many people in the water. However, it is a BEAUTIFUL location. The second stop to the coral garden was incredible and worth the whole trip. Reasonably priced if you book through a shore side local operater and not onboard... More

Very nice outfit, they picked me up at the dock and took me to there boat where they take you out for a 1/2 day or full day tour of the islands. They also have a private lagoon where you can swim and snorkel with sharks, rays and turtles very cool and well worth the time
