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

We booked this excursion from our cruise ship. Aquanature uses a catamaran for there snorkel trips. We snorkeled in the marine sanctuary at Signal Island, The water was slightly turbid due to a heavy rain the day before but this did not diminish the outstanding coral garden. There were plenty of fish of all types. The crew were excellent, provided... More

This was part of a three-hour shore excursion which I bought. My wife and I were on the Carnival Legend sailing from Sydney. There were 21 of us from the cruise ship, and we were bussed to the marina where Valerie and crew were waiting for us, followed by a safety briefing. Wet suits and snorkeling gear were provided. I...

We were on a Royal Caribbean cruise and on the 21st October 2015 we decided to go on the snorkelling tour with Aquanature to Signal Island just 30 mins by catamaran out of Noumea. What a great experience! The coral, the fish, small sharks, turtles and the professional guides were fantastic. If you love snorkelling don't miss this!

On the 4th Oct, I did the morning reef snorkelling tour as one of the shore tours during our P&O cruise J538, and it was well worth doing it. We caught the boat from the wharf just next to the main passenger terminal at Noumea. Before we left we were given a safety demonstration on the life jackets. The weather... More
