■ Swimming with Whales
Live the incredible experience to watch and swim with humpback whales as anywhere else !
Indeed French Polynesia is one of the last places in the world where it is allowed to swim with cetaceans !
Each austral winter (July to November), humpback whales come to spend five months in the warm waters of Polynesia to breed and give birth.
The rest of the year, they are in Antarctica for food.
Whale season has always punctuated the year Polynesians. It begins in late June, early July.
Latest whales leave Polynesia in November, when the calves, born last, have enough strength to begin their migration to the Antarctic.
During the tour, our experienced and passionate guides will share their knowledge on these majestic whales before identifying the distance, through their breath and surface mounted.
You approach slowly so as to be on the animal's path without the chase.
Your guides will then decide when to put yourself in the water with fins, mask and snorkel.
And that's when the magic will operate when an animal will approach your group and let admire.
It is common to hear the song of a male whale putting his head under water but also to contemplate the jump out of the water ! Thrills !
Luckily generous Polynesia will also meet near dolphins, Cuvier's beaked whales, Blainville whales and pilot whales groups !!!
