Join Moorea Ocean Adventures for snorkeling expeditions into the open ocean off the coast of Moorea, French Polynesia. Led by our team of marine biologists and naturalist guides, we invite you to explore the ocean far offshore and meet the many different species of pelagic marine wildlife of Moorea. For the adventurous snorkelers this is the ultimate adventure, diving into the deep blue with oceanic fish, sharks, dolphins and whales. If you have never snorkeled in the big blue ocean with several kilometers of water beneath you, this will be an adventure like no other! Welcome to the kingdom of unknown life where everything could happen…
For our most adventurous guests, this is a special tour in the open sea to meet oceanic or pelagic species. This begins with the opportunity to observe marine birds hunting in the open ocean. We commonly encounter several species including; Frigates, Boobies, Noddis, Tropical tailed birds and Petrels.
We often find tuna hunting smaller fish close to the surface while birds attack from the sky. We can enter the water and investigate the action – this can be real National Geographic style adventure. When we explore the open ocean, we never know in advance what we are going to find: pilot whales, marlins, mahi mahi, sharks, tuna, this is absolutely impossible to know what is going to happen !
We may encounter other species of marine wildlife like; sea turtles, Rough-toothed dolphins, Cuviers beaked whales, Pilot whales, Marlin, Swordfish and more. When we do find such amazing animals we are happy to dive into the deep blue with them for the encounter of a lifetime.
This is not a snorkeling expedition for beginners and all participants must have strong swimming and snorkeling skills. Please do keep in mind that when venturing into the big blue seas of Moorea we cannot guarantee encountering pelagic or oceanic species – although it is a rare occasion we do not see them.
