Description

Discover the pristine ecosystems of New Caledonia during a visit to the Aquarium des Lagons and an exciting snorkel outing near Duck Island. See tropical fish and fluorescent coral, and soak up information about local conservation efforts being spearheaded by New Caledonian scientists and policy-makers.

Get picked up from your Nouméa hotel and travel a short distance to the Aquarium des Lagons. This educational site is devoted to preserving the region's marine biodiversity through conscientious environmental conservancy. Learn about the New Caledonian barrier reef and marvel at some of your favorite species including sea turtles, grey reef sharks, marlins, and mahi-mahi. Includes one way transfer from your hotel to the aquarium and entry to the aquarium. This is a self-guided visit.

Cross over the road to the activities hut on Anse Vata (100 metres from the aquarium) and take a water taxi to Duck Island to get up-close with some of the same sea life you observed at the aquatic museum. On Duck Island, don a snorkel mask and flippers and dive beneath the surface of the waves. Appreciate the myriad tropical fish that flicker before your eyes and use the knowledge you picked up at the aquarium to identify tropical species. Includes lunch, hire of snorkelling equipment and return water taxi to Anse Vata. Return to hotel from Anse Vata own arrangements.
