They are best seen from mid-August through late October. We’ve planned our trip at the peak of the season. It’s common to see mothers and calves, hear males singing, and see breaching and other surface behaviors.Moorea,Tahiti,Snorkel,Humpback,Whales,September,7-21,2021,dive,photo,video expedition,trip,scuba

Moorea Tahiti – Snorkel with Humpback Whales – 3 Trips from September to October, 2020

Join us on an epic photo expedition in Moorea, French Polynesia snorkeling with Humpback Whales. Humpback whales are seasonal visitors to Moorea. Between July and November each year they travel from the Antarctic to the warm tropical waters of Tahiti to mate and give birth. They are best seen from mid-August through late October. We’ve planned our trip at the peak of the season. It’s common to see mothers and calves, hear males singing, and see breaching and other surface behaviors. The lagoon and ocean surrounding Moorea, French Polynesia is warm and clear, making it one of the best places in the world to swim with and observe Humpback Whales in the mating and nursery areas. French Polynesia declared itself a Marine Mammal Sanctuary in 2002 offering protection to all of the 16 species of Whales and Dolphins found there. In addition to humpback whales, we may also see pilot whales, spinner and rough-toothed dolphins, stingrays, eagle rays, reef sharks, oceanic white tip sharks, sea turtles and lots more. RESERVE YOUR SPOT NOW Our trips are small-group, photography focused, led by an experienced guide and photo pro. We’ve planned 6 full days on the water to maximize the opportunities to swim with these amazing animals. This is a snorkel only trip, no SCUBA gear or certifications required. You’ll need a wetsuit, fins, mask, and snorkel. You must be a good swimmer as there will be a lot of surface swimming to meet up with the whales. You must be able to get in and out of a semi-inflatable boat and comfortable being in the water for extended periods of time. Contact us for more details!
