Overview
Explore the waters of Moorea on a small-group half-day boat tour that offers the chance to snorkel near marine animals such as sharks, stingrays, and whales. Your naturalist guide shares commentary about the creatures you might see, including blacktip reef sharks, grey reef sharks, pink whiprays, leopard rays, dolphins, and humpback whales (mid-July to mid-November). Choose from a morning or afternoon departure for this small-group tour limited to eight people. Includes guide, use of snorkel equipment, beverages, fresh fruit, and hotel pickup and drop-off.
What to Expect
Your driver or skipper will pick you up at your hotel prior to your selected time and you'll head to the pier located at Artisan Perlier. After meeting your guide and boarding your boat, you'll sail out on the waters off Moorea on an underwater wildlife expedition to immerse you in the rich marine life of the Moorea reef and lagoon ecosystems.

During your tour, you'll experience the crystalline waters of the sand bottom lagoon including observation of pink whipray stingrays and blacktip reef sharks. Drift through a channel towards the outer reef to observe leopard rays and grey sharks beneath you in the pass. Observe cetaceans including spinner dolphins, rough toothed dolphins, and humpback whales (if conditions permit). You'll be able to get into the water to swim or snorkel (snorkel gear included) with creatures of the underwater world to observe more closely.

From mid-July to mid-November, humpback whales are present in our warm waters; they migrate from Antarctic waters to calve and reproduce. French Polynesia is one of the few places where it is possible to swim with them and observe them directly in their realm. The calves are particularly curious and are masters at eliciting memorable emotions from our guests. Primary focus of this wildlife expedition activity is to observe humpback whales.

During the tour, the best spots for navigation and wildlife observation will be chosen by the biologist and captain, depending on weather. Most of the time the navigation will be on the north and the west coast of Moorea. During this excursion, you'll enjoy some fresh fruits, water and juice aboard the boat.

Tour will end at the pier around 11:30am or 6pm, depending on the time you selected. After disembarking at the pier, you will be return to your hotel by boat or vehicle, depending on the location of your hotel.
