Did the hop on bus to Duck Island. Pretty little island with upscale furniture but poor snorkeling because all the coral was broken. We saw better fish as we swam towards the buoys. They wanted $ to sit on the chairs. I got annoyed and left. Took the bus again and stopped at the little aquarium. Fantastic exhibit and good turtle exhibit also.

Well developed port. Excursions at welcome centre were fraction of the price of ship for same experience, and hop-on-hop-off shuttles got us to every location for the day very cost effectively.

Was very easy to navigate around Noumea using the Hop On Hop Off Bus. But the ship did not promote this, preferring to promote their overpriced tours. Beaches were great

Stay on the ship. Port is actually a container terminal. You are taken to another location where you can do the Hop on Hop off bus for $25 through the ship or $10 with local tourist operator, goes to same places. We will be staying on ship next cruise.
