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.

Regarding vouchers GYGX7RL8M9XH for 2 people. Bonjour, We arrived today to Noumea 0n the and you did not provide anyone at the Meetup place. We asked many people. Then we went to your totally unmanned stall. There was no-one there. So we had to pay for yet another tour! Very poor service from Get Your Guide! Please can you refund the money of $74.58 straight back into my account as you did not supply us Noumea: Hop on Hop off Bus plus Duck Island Our Vouchers have not been redeemed. We could not cancel within 24 hours as we did not know that no one would be there to meet us and fullfill this tour. I await you response Very soon via email. My phone has also broken so I will only be able to access this email occasionally or on my return to Australia as I am on a cruise ship. Please refund the cost of this unused tour as soon as possible.

Waited almost 2 hours for the return "ferry" and because 100 others were also waiting we had to stand in the sun. Or lose our place - 1 ferry taking only 10 people at a time and goodness knows why it took him an hour to come back. It's chaotic and cheaper to pay when you are there than book through here, any and all questions directed to the place who was running this prior to confirm things were unanswered and still are. Sadly there's no other way over to duck Island but just be prepared.. You have to pay for a seat and shade and the staff there are rude as hell!
