Moorea Whale Trips September/October 2018

This is why you must do this trip:

> Get picked up from a boat directly from your hotel restaurant

> Have a close encounter with a whale 10 minutes after leaving the dock

> Enjoy a location with warm, clear water and that takes 1/3 the time to get to than most other humpback whale destinations, and costs half the price

> The operator never cuts a whale encounter short

> You are in the water with a small group of people, 6 at most, compared to 20 people on the "day boats".

This is the amazing trip that Scott Gietler experienced last year, and has put together for you to enjoy - a trip of a lifetime. Last year Scott had whale encounters every day he was on the water. Snorkel only, no dive certification required!

Humpback whale season is from August 1st to November 1st. All trips are in the peak of the season.
