Sailing catamaran turtle tour: price per person
This tour is reserved for cruisers.
I propose you to sail away to paradise aboard a sailing catamaran with a capacity of 20 passengers.
Let's go to discover wild side island from Noumea: LAREGNERE ISLAND
LAREGNERE ISLAND is the largest true coral cay 244 hectares (603 acres) on the New Caledonia south lagoon with 13,5 hectares (34 acres) surrounding reef, just 30 mn by our water taxi from Noumea (cruise ship Terminal). This uninhabited Tropical Island surrounded by pristine white sands beach is often compared to Whitehaven beach in the whithsundays (Australia).
LAREGNERE ISLAND and his magical coral fringed lagoon is the perfect location to explore New Caledonia's Southern lagoon first hand.
LAREGNERE ISLAND reef is home to over 1300 varieties of tropical fish and 350 species of colourful hard ans soft coral.The reef is a protected green zone and has never been fished and therefore offers an abundance of large and rare marine life.
You have good chance to swim with the turtles on LAREGNERE Island, and snorkel all year round without stinger suits in this unique, protected reef island.

If not, you can even see colored coral and fish… We don't guarantee you will see or swim with turtles, because it depends your snorkeling level and the weather conditions.
