1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?


The respect given to these amazing animals by the local guides. If a mother whale was swimming away from us with her calf, at no time was there a chase to
get nearer. We simply left mother and calf and moved on to see if we could find other whales to observe and swim with.
Local guides and crew were so professional and hospitable.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?


Leave the GoPros and underwater cameras on the boat. Swim with the whales and experience the moment for what its worth.
Spend a day or two either side of the tour. Moorea has a lot to offer in terms of hikes, quad biking and other activities on the island.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


Yes

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?


An incredible experience - a wonderful opportunity to swim with such amazing animals.

Responsible Travel

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) vacation so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.

Planet

Our clients are informed on the need to adhere strictly to our waste disposal policies during their time in French Polynesia. This is to insure that they do nothing to disturb or change the balance in the eco-system.

We have our own environmentally friendly water bottles with we refill each day with UV sterilised rainwater for drinking each day for our guests .

Local communities and schools are constantly reminded and educated on the need to protect and preserve their culture and the environment as to continually attract tourism.

We adhere to strict guidelines when observing the whales and we collect humpback whale I.D. photos on our vessel each season to support the ongoing research and conservation of the South Pacific Humpback whales.

We do not print information brochures, all our information is on our website where information can be downloaded if and when required. All paper in our offices is recycled and we refrain from accepting plastic bags or wrapping whenever possible.

To always rent and electric vehicle for the 82 days of the season and share that vehicle among the team.

People

To honour and contribute to supporting the local communities socially, economically, environmentally, we believe in the training and retraining of staff and volunteers alike to ensure that they are acquainted with contemporary issues involved in providing safe, informative, educative, life changing and sustainable tourism.

We only work with local suppliers who strictly adhere to the 'Whale-watching Guidelines of French Polynesia' - that cause little or no negative impact on the humpback whales in the area.

We encourage our guests to interact with our boat crew, the local families during the traditional Tahitian feast and cultural center, staff at resorts and on any village visits or events where this is possible.

We only recommend locally owned craft stores, restaurants, dive, day tours & activities companies and encourage our guests to visit local schools with books, stationery and gifts we suggest they bring.

Our Mission:

To increase awareness of the importance of conservation of our marine mammals through groups of people directly experiencing the underwater world of the whales and dolphins for themselves and by supporting research projects around the world.

Our eco-tours take place only in certain areas of our oceans (away from commercial tourism), where these encounters are guided by local trained and experienced naturalists insuring that we have the least impact these intelligent mammals as possible and that the whales are honoured and respected at all times and not harassed or invaded in any way.

To extend an invitation to others who are touched by whales and dolphins to join us on our guided encounters, and have the opportunity to personally experience these extraordinary mammals in the wild and realise the vital importance of their survival and the tragic effect their extinction would have on our planet.

To contribute to our oceans becoming a safe place for all marine mammals to continue to live and breed.
