Amazing service from the start. They are set up right outside the cruise ship terminal and speak very good English. Snorkel gear is provided which saves the hassle of having to rent/buy gear. Also a supermarket is right across the road from the tent where they are set up, to grab some food and water to take over to the island. You are guaranteed to have the most amazing time seeing the turtles and tropical fish.

It was awesome experience of my holiday in New Caledonia. When I departed from the port by boat, the weather was not good with rain and clouds, also the sea was rough. However it’s changed to be fine as gift from sun after reached at the island! Like a magic! The island was very compact and the beach was so beautiful. The sea water was bit muddy when I started swimming, but I was so happy and excited to swim with wild sea turtles! All stuffs were pretty fine and kind. Wanna join to this tour, if I have a chance of back to the country.

The boat ride was fun but once we were on signal island, if you didn’t pay an extra 40$ to follow the guide who swims with a small group, you are left alone there.., I snorkelled for hours so I was lucky to see two turtles and a small shark because most of us didn’t see any. This said it would be much better to maybe increase the price by 15/20$ but include this option for everyone....
