We could see coral reefs and fish swimming between them through the bottom glass of the boat.
Unexpectedly, there was an art trail where many original artworks by sculptors and artists were on display.
It is said that at weekends, volunteers from the environmental information center would be there to answer visitors questions.

'Le Roof' is a name of the restaurant built above the sea water in Numea.
When my wife and I took a walk along the beach, I found a pier which connected the beach and the restaurant.
We walked through the pier just for taking a look at the menu of the restaurant.
Unfortunately, I couldn't see the menu because the restaurant was closed.
But, instead of the menu, we could see live coral reef just under the pier bridge.
Yes, surprisingly you don't have to dive to see coral reef here in Numea!

When I went to a pier in Numea, a huge cruise ship was docked there.
Since we can't see such a big ship in Tochigi, Japan, the size of her body was nothing short of amazing.
I looked up wiki. about the ship and it said;
Pacific Jewel was built in Monfalcone, Italy launched on 25 May 1989.
The vessel had a gross tonnage of 69,845.
She is about 245 m (804 ft) long, with a beam of 32 m (105 ft) with a maximum speed of 19.5 knots (36.1 km/h; 22.4 mph).
The ship could carry 1,910 passengers (maximum). The cruise ship was built at a cost of US$276.8 million.
