Lagoonarium, Moorea

#1 of 8 in Parks in Moorea
Swim with rays, sharks, and tropical fish at Lagoonarium, a protected underwater environment off the coast of Moorea. Take a three-minute boat trip out to the reserve before plunging beneath the waters to inspect the marine life so abundant in French Polynesia. An untouched coral garden provides the backdrop for your views, and the helpful and friendly staff remain on hand to inform, entertain, and assist you during your experience. Bring your own snorkeling gear, or rent what you need. An onsite cafe serves food, although you are also welcome to bring your own picnic.

  • Great place to see a lot of fish, sharks, & sting rays! Don't miss the feeding. Beware of the strong current - you'll want to hold on tight to the rope! I'd recommend life jackets for children or weak swimmers.
  • Swam with stingrays, like on it's back! Just be careful, they.. bite! A must to do when you are in Moorea. Go for a full day. Please put lotion on your bottom... Bring boozzzz. You will pull yourself against the current via rope.. and then release & drift down, just to catch another rope. You can dive to the bottom and hold on to rocks. It is so much fun! The most fun I had in Moorea.
