Encounter engraved in your memory for life…

You and the whales in private…no other boat around!

Since 2002, French Polynesia is a sanctuary of more than 5 million km2 for marine mammals. About 20 protected species live there all year round. The most famous of them, the humpback whale is only observed in Polynesia between early July and early November. They come to give birth and breed in Tahiti before returning to the cold waters of the Antarctic.

With family or friends, enjoy a private boat which will optimize whales watching off Moorea and Tahiti. Some rules have to be followed like distances from whales. Depending on whales behaviour and mood of the day, snorkelling alongside the mammals can be authorised. The boat is also equipped with an hydrophone which allows you to listen the beautiful songs of these sea giants.

This is a half-day or full-day expedition from Moorea only. We prefer pickups by boat, directly to your hotel or nearby. For people coming from Tahiti, we will pick you up directly on the arrival of the ferry and will drop you off at the end of the day. The expedition  usually starts at 8am until 12pm or 01pm until 4.30pm for ½ day and 9am to 3.30pm for full days. This expedition includes:

Half day tour:

  • Safety and educational briefings
  • Private boat
  • experienced guide and skipper
  • Snorkeling with stingrays and black tip sharks
  • bays tour
  • Tea break

And, in addition for the full day:

  • Lunch (possibility to go to the restaurant with supplement),
  • The huge advantage of being alone on the water between noon and 2pm (other providers' break times).
