The lagoon is of pure beauty. Far away from land, it offers us a great rest from our usual hectic lives. Here it is only silence and serenity with a feel of freedom and joy in the air. The lagoon is vast natural aquarium with warm, shallow translucid waters, protected all around by a huge coral barrier reef. The underwater visibility is amazing and long distance which allows us to perfectly see all its underwater amazing life: from a wide variety of colorful corals and fishes, turtles, dolphins etc. For all these reasons, it is our favorite place to swim with wild dolphins.





A group of 20 to 100 Spinner dolphins usually enters the lagoon on a daily basis, early in the morning and they tend to stay until mid to late afternoon. We can sometimes also see a few Tusiops Truncatus  within the spinner dolphins pod. Spinner Dolphins are able to do 7 rotations in the air when jumping and they are also known to be one of the most talkative, ie noisy specie of dolphins. This pod is very open to human interactions when done respectfully.

Every day we will go and offer the dolphins an encounter. We will however leave it up to them to decide whether or not they want to accept it. And if they do so, its duration will also be up to them. This magical moments can last between half and hour and more than 4 hours certain days..

And when the dolphins are not in the mood to welcome us or seem to have enough of us, it is then an opportunity for us to go snorkeling and discover  the beautiful coral potatoes, reefs, or the splendid coral garden with all its amazing colorful life.

And for those enjoying scuba diving or wishing to give it a try, you can go with our divemaster to enjoy some spots in and around the lagoon.

IMPORTANT NOTE: The probability to swim with dolphins is exceptionnal in this lagoon as dolphins come in almost every day and stay up to 10 hours in. However, wild life can never be garanteed 100%, as it is wild and free (and that’s the way we want it to stay). There is, of course, no feeding nor any type of action there taken to try and attract dolphins.




Stingray, turtles, Napoleons, murenas, Clown fishes, life is plentyful, diverse and amazing. We will enjoy a lot of snorkeling around the lagoon’s most beautiful spots to explore it.
Scuba diver amateurs may also go out with our divemaster to discover it from below.


Welcome onboard this splendid and confortable yacht (32m long -4 decks) on which we will spend the whole week.

There is only about 2,5 hours navigation to and from the lagon. Once in the lagoon, we will anchor there and stay for the week. Inside the lagoon, the water is shallow and flat calm as we are fully protected by the surroundig reef barrier so we can welome everyone for this stay (there is no risk of sea sickness).

All indoor spaces (saloon-restaurant & cabins) have airconditioning. There are about 10 double cabins onaboard, each with its own bathroom including a shower, toilets, sink & miror. All electric plugs are similar to the french plugs onboard. There is no Wifi or when any, it is usually very fluctuent. The cellphone network coverage is however rather good in the lagoon.



Most cabins have twin beds and one or two cabins have a double bed, all are equipped with a bathroom.

Graduated in Animal Ethology & Human-Animal interactions from the University of Paris Descartes, Valérie VALTON explores the relationship possibilities and extents between humans and sea mammals.
She travels around the world to encounter various species. Her aim is to understand to what extent we can approach, interact, bond and mutually understand each other.

She will share with you all fundamental principles of human-dolphin respectful interactions so as for you to smoothly enter their world and live an authentic and true encounter.
Valérie’s guidance also invites participants to be ‘here and now’, to consciously reconnect and be attentive to all our senses and to our natural instinct. Being in such state of presence, alert and open really will allows to experiment the deepest possible encounters with sea mammals. Be ready for magic and unforgettable moments to unroll :).

She speaks french, english and some spanish.
