Snorkeling Lagoon Tours
Duration - 3 to 4 hours
Availability - Daily out of Whale Season

About

  • Cruise in Opunohu bay and through the beautiful lagoon of Moorea;

  • Watch the spinner dolphins in their natural habitat (not guaranteed);

  • Swim and snorkel with black tip reef sharks and sting rays;

  • Drift snorkeling in the coral canyon and encounter green turtles and many colorful fish of the lagoon;

  • Round trip pickup transportation included.

After picking you up from your hotel, you will sail around Opunohu Bay in search of spinner dolphins often near the coast or in the bays during the day. However, spinner dolphins are wild animals so we cannot guarantee their observation every day.

1st stop is snorkeling with stingrays and blacktip sharks. This activity takes place on a shallow sandbank of the lagoon where you can stand as the water is only waist-chest high. It is accessible to all ages without any particular physical shape needed. Stingrays are gentle creatures that come on their own and may make contact with visitor. Sharks keep a healthy distance because they are more afraid of you than you are of them.

2nd snorkeling stop is at the coral canyon. This activity is a drift snorkel where you will be drifted by the current while snorkeling. It takes place in slightly deeper waters so we recommend that our customers know how to swim and use snorkeling equipment (fins, mask and snorkel). However, if you are not very comfortable in the water it is possible to stay in the boat to observe the green turtles and other species of multicolored fish. (This activity may be suspended if the conditions are bad)

3rd snorkeling stop is at the coral garden between the two most beautiful motus off the island of Moorea, where you can swim and admire all kinds of multicolored fish. You will also enjoy a break with a drink and fresh fruit. After this stop we will head back and you will be driven back to your hotel.
Note: There is the possibility of dropping off customers at the Coco Beach Restaurant on the motu or elsewhere after the return excursion at your expense.​

Whale Watching
Duration - 3 to 4 hours
Availability - Daily out of Whale Season

About

  • Cruise in Opunohu Bay and through the lagoon of Moorea;

  • Observe spinner dolphins and humpback whales in their natural habitat;

  • Possibility of snorkeling with humpback whales;

  • Snorkel with stingrays and black tip sharks.

After picking you up from your hotel, the boat will leave our base, located in Opunohu Bay, for a short stroll in the bay followed by a safety debriefing regarding the approach of cetaceans.

Every year between July and early November, humpback whales migrate through the warm Polynesian waters. They come here to breed or give birth. This is a unique opportunity we have to admire them.

During this excursion we sometimes also happen to see spinner dolphins, pilot whales and pelagic sharks.

French Polynesia is one of the few destinations in the world where it is still possible to swim with cetaceans and have the opportunity to observe them underwater. Join us and have the experience of your life!

On our return to the lagoon, we will also stop to swim with stingrays and black tip sharks. This activity takes place on a shallow sandbank of the lagoon where you can stand as the water is only waist-chest high. It is accessible to all ages without any particular physical shape needed. You can also enjoy a break on the boat with a drink and fresh fruit.

There is the possibility to drop off customers at the Beach Restaurant on the motu or other after the return excursion, at your own expense.

Important notes

Swimming is not compulsory, you can observe from the boat, our priority is respect for mammals and the safety of our passengers.

Our guide will authorize the launch for the swim only after having observed that the weather conditions and the behavior of the animals are favorable.

The government of French Polynesia imposes specific rules of approach. We will explain the instructions to follow before launching to ensure your safety and that of the animals.

Swimming with whales means swimming in the deep blue in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. Approach rules also require us to swim long distances to approach animals discreetly.

This activity can be quite physically demanding and requires knowing how to swim and effectively using snorkeling equipment, fins, mask and snorkel.

Note: We unfortunately cannot guarantee you will swim with a whale on your tour. Why? We don’t choose to swim with a humpback whale, it chooses to swim with us. We are talking about a truly wild animal, in the open ocean, with the weather having a major impact too.
