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

Third time on a cruise into Noumea (Carnival Legend from Hawaii to Sydney). Decided to do this on a spur of the moment and was so glad we did. Staff were professional and helpful. The large group was split into two. We had our own snorkels, but they had wet suits (Which the wife wore) and snorkels available for all.... 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

The best way to contact Aquanature is via email:aquanature@cani.nc Valerie responds promptly. I took the half day trip, which departs at 8.30 am from pier K1 at Port Moselle to the left of the Noumea Market. The trip cost 7000 in Pacific Francs & is well worth it. They visit two offshore islands a brief boat trip from Noumea. Valerie... More

Jonty & Roberto were great hosts. We had a beautiful day visiting two snorkeling locations, a major highlight was being on the outer reef. Saw lots of fish, plus a Leopard & Reef Shark sitting quietly on the bottom! Plus three turtles 👍 Both guys were helpful and informative. We had an hour in each location & morning tea. Was... More

We received a warm welcome and made to feel very comfortable. We snorkelled in fabulous areas, on a half day trip. Very relaxed but still professional and informative. Wetsuits, snorkels and fins provided. Our guide was very patient and helpful and made sure we saw the best fish, coral, sharks.Highly recommend this company.

I love snorkeling spots, and this one is good at Signal Island. Saw reef shark and turtle. Some saw sting ray. It is part of the largest lagoon on earth and part of the Great Barrier Reef. Didn't see any fish bigger than parrot fish besides shark. Water was less than 20 feet deep and usually more shallow where they... More
