Join Moorea Ocean Adventures for a private boat tour to swim with the magnificent Humpback Whales in Moorea, French Polynesia.. We are pleased to offer small group private Whale watching tours from July through November.

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.
