1. Moorea: Whale and Dolphin Watching
Tick an item off the bucket list with this incredible experience: an up-close encounter with humpback whales. Swim with these gentle giants and other marine life on a private tour in a stunning French Polynesian lagoon. Known as the best place in the world for an in-water experience with humpback whales and other wildlife species, French Polynesia is one of the rare places on earth where swimming with these beautiful giants is permitted. Observe them in their natural habitat, playfully interacting with one another. Learn about the whales' migration and watch them evolve in their natural habitat with experienced tour guides. Then, the experienced guides will brief you on proper safety guidelines and how to respect the animals before you dive into the water for an indescribable experience that you’ll remember for the rest of your life. On top of the whale watching, during the day tour, you will have the opportunity to observe spinner dolphins, pilot whales, pelagic sharks in the ocean. In the lagoon, you can observe sea turtles, different tropical fish species – and snorkel with stingrays and blacktip sharks.
