Bora Bora Lagoonarium
Vacation Travel Guide

Bora Bora Lagoonarium which includes marine life and snorkelling as well as an individual male

Discover the amazing array of marine creatures that live below the surface of Bora Bora’s beautiful lagoon at this natural aquarium on a small islet.

Like an aquarium but without the glass, Bora Bora Lagoonarium presents a captivating underwater experience on the island’s eastern shores. Spy an immense array of marine creatures swimming in the pristine lagoon or try snorkeling in the aquarium’s pools under the guidance of the Lagoonarium attendants. Join a guided tour and explore the premises via canoe and enjoy a freshly barbecued seafood picnic for lunch.

You’ll see a diverse range of sea creatures swimming in their tropical habitat within this naturally enclosed section of the lagoon. Peer into the waters to see sharks, turtles and rays moving gracefully through the aquarium. Kaleidoscopic tropical fish move in shimmering schools against a backdrop of coral reefs.

Strap on your snorkel and mask to take the plunge with a wildlife guide. See the marine creatures up close as you swim around the aquarium’s warm and shallow waters. Watch in awe as rays and sharks circle the enclosure and see the slow movement of the turtles. The underwater tour is not for the fainthearted; many of these sea creatures are just as curious about you.

Take an exciting canoe trip around the Lagoonarium’s perimeter and listen as your guide points out the different species swimming below the surface. Back on dry land, you can enjoy a freshly grilled picnic lunch. Stick around to watch the sharks and rays receive their afternoon meal.

If you want to extend your time here, you can stay at the Lagoonarium’s accommodation and spend the night on the aquarium’s private motu (small islet) in a bungalow or dormitory.

The Bora Bora Lagoonarium is located on one of the island’s eastern motus. Reserve your visit to take advantage of the Lagoonarium’s convenient hotel pickup service. Alternatively, take a taxi to the aquarium. Tour options include half- and full-day experiences and can be booked as part of a package tour with a canoe adventure or a trip to the Bora Bora Coral Gardens. The lagoonarium is open daily. Children under the age of 10 receive half-price admission.

"We stayed here over New Years and everything was absolutely perfect. They picked us up from the Bora Bora airport and gave us a flower/grass crown. They had our room ready before check in. We paid for a premium room but were surprised we also got a private pool. They welcomed us with a fruit platter. ..."
