Full description
The Duck Island package includes a water taxi return ticket + a full-day hop-on hop-off ticket. Please use the hop-on hop-off service as your transfer to and from the water taxi. The bus ride takes about 20 minutes. Discover the Morning Market shopping center, as well as many other included stops on the way.

Duck Island is a little snorkel paradise just a 7-minute boat ride off the shore of Anse Vata Bay. Hop onboard and enjoy New Caledonia's underwater world, full of various tropical fish and colorful corals. If you love the ocean, you will love Duck Island and its underwater treasures. Enjoy tasty snacks and drinks available for purchase on the island.

The water taxi to Duck Island and the hop-on hop-off buses run very frequently, approximately every 20-25 minutes, making it easy for you to organize your day in Nouméa — with plenty of time to visit, for example, the aquarium or to ride the famous Green Train.
