Zip across the bay on a thrilling zodiac ride and enjoy the brilliant sand and reef waters surrounding tiny Duck Island.
After getting on your lifejacket and safety briefing, embark the 18ft/5.5m semi rigid zodiac for a 20 minute thrill ride to Duck Island. Cruise along your ship then onto the bays of Noumea to your final destination “Duck Island”.
Your skipper will hand you a ticket for a sun chair and umbrella on the island (1 umbrella for 2 chairs). Enjoy approximately 2-hours to swim or snorkel in the shallow waters of this marine reserve with abundant marine life, or just relax. A snack bar and snorkeling equipment are available in the island at an additional cost.
For the snorkelers, there is an underwater trail you can follow. Each numbered buoy marks the path to follow so you can maximize your experience.
At a designated time and spot, your zodiac will be waiting to take you back.
