swimming with whales - Papeete and Morea

Recommended Posts

There are two tours (through Costco) that are whale watching and if conditions are good, you get to swim with the whales. One tour in Papeete and one in Morea. Has anyone taken one of these tours? What was your experience? Does anyone have an opinion which of these tours would be preferred?

Went on an excursion with Dr. Michael Poole out of Moorea several years ago. It was great and we got into the water with 2 whales. They were right below us.

I did two whale watches while in Tahiti. One out of Papeete and the other from Moorea. Go to my blog and scroll down the right side to "whale watch". There are two posts about my experience and some pictures!

We know of one company that does offer whale experience. Moorea activities centre. Whale seasons are late July to Dec.

They don't chase the whale, they let them come to them.
