Moorea Whale Trips September/October 2017


 Moorea Whale Trips September/October 2017

This is why you must do this trip:

We would like to invite you on a very special trip. Imagine being picked up from a boat directly from your hotel restaurant. A trip where you can have a close encounter with a whale 10 minutes after leaving the dock. A location that puts you in warm, clear water and takes 1/3 the time to get to than most other humpback whale destinations, and costs half the price. A trip where the operator never cuts a whale encounter short. A trip where you are in the water with a small group of people, 6 at most, compared to 20 people on the "day boats". This is the amazing trip that Scott Gietler experienced last year, and has put together for you to enjoy - a trip of a lifetime. Last year Scott had whale encounters every day he was on the water. Snorkel only, no dive certification required!

Read our exciting whale trip recap from last year

Humpback whale season is from August 1st to November 1st. All trips are in the peak of the season.
