The Lagoonarium experience was worth every minute! We were collected from our hotel and taken to the base where we boarded the boat. The Lagoonarium is based next to the St.Regis Hotel. The brothers who run this experience are extremely fun and passionate about the lagoonarium and islander life. We swam with stingrays and sharks and felt safe and comfortable.... More

the full day tour was great, lunch was delicious, and the pareo class was fun. I like the time at the private beach. It allows you to relax and swim with sharks and sting rays without any rush.

Depending on how comfortable you are with animals in the water you may like this as a starter trip. The lagoon is gorgeous and you can swim around with lemon sharks and stingrays in a big area that is netted off from the open water. Would recommend just an afternoon trip as a full day would most likely get a... More

Everything about the blue waters and the fish, animals and beaches in the lahoonarium is true. The colors are as bright as in any book and will stay in your memory forever. The sting rays are as soft as cats and the water is crystal clear. We could not get enough of the sights in this place and hope to... More

We called the Lagoonarium from our hotel took after reading all the reviews. Our hotel concierge told us they didn't recommend it (I'm sure because they didn't get a cut) but the reviews were all great. They picked us up in the afternoon and took us to the Lagoonarium. They asked why we didn't come in the morning because the... More

It's quite spectacular to imagine the amount of interaction with such beautiful creatures. When we were there the hosts were very kind to the sealife and respectful to us. Trip of a lifetime. I sih there were more of these around the world.

We did the full day tour and were picked up from right outside our accommodation in the back of a 4x4, via another hotel to the dock. With the trip back at the end we effectively got a full tour of the island by road. The guides can be what makes a full trip like this and we weren't disappointed,... More

Great group of people running the show. Amazing wildlife in the lagoonarium. Swam with sharks of many sizes, even during their feeding time. Probably the only place you will see turtles in Bora Bora, i don't think many tourists see them in the wild. We did the half day trip which is the best option in my opinion, no need... More

We had a blast! The sharks and rays are awesome!! I would recommend the half day tour. You see and do everything the full day tour does, but you get out of the sun and heat 3 hours sooner. The crew was a riot!! Very entertaining!! We did have our own snorkle gear and I would recommend doing that, not... More
