Bora Bora Lagoonarium
A fascinating variety of aquatic species call the Lagoonarium home. It serves as a protected habitat and coral nursery. Weekly maintenance by marine biologists is performed on the lagoon and coral nursery, and guests can learn about the efforts being made to save tropical marine life.
The circulation of cold saltwater from the depths of the ocean was specifically engineered in this habitat to promote coral growth. The nutrient-rich environment encourages coral regeneration and makes it easier for the numerous and colorful fish species to feed and find shelter amid the healthy coral.
On a tiny motu (island) to the east of the main island is the natural aquarium known as the Bora Bora Lagoonarium.
The fact that you may snorkel on the property while being supervised by wildlife experts is one of the nicest features of this family-run business. You can see sharks, turtles, rays, and a wide variety of ocean species below the lagoon’s surface.
Additionally, according to the type of trip you select (full-day, half-day morning, or half-day afternoon), you’ll get to take advantage of a number of extras, such as a barbecue picnic or an island tour by canoe.
The Bora Bora Lagoonarium received a mixed bag of reviews. Since it feels safe and enclosed, some have cited the Lagoonarium as a wonderful place to learn how to snorkel.
Others delighted in giving the fish food. Some passengers, however, weren’t impressed with the condition of the boat or the environment the animals were living in.
Depending on whether you go in the forenoon or the afternoon, half-day tours cost anywhere from 6,200 and 9,500 XPF (about $70 to $100). The Lagoonarium will set a time to pick you up from your hotel if you make a reservation directly with them.
