Lagoon Explorer Locations & Species
We visit a variety of reef locations on the Lagoon Explorer trip. We only visit each reef for a short period each year, and this keeps the fishing in a pristine condition at each location. Each reef has it’s own “personality”, so the species you are most interested in, and the time of year that you plan your trip, will best determine which location you should visit.
