The encounter between man and humpback whale is a moment of humility, respect and sharing that you will never forget.


When searching for wild animals, sightings are not always quick and obvious. We must remain patient and optimistic.

To know

As we want you to enjoy a quality experience and make the most of this shared tour, we limit the number of passengers to a maximum of 6.

So we favor quality over quantity.

Also, to avoid seasickness or complicated situations in the water, we do not recommend that the more fragile and less comfortable people join this tour. That’s why a minimum intermediate snorkeling level is required.

What you could experience

Imagine yourself swimming in the blue of the ocean. Imagine yourself surrounded by the immensity of this blue. You see the sun’s rays crossing the surface of the water and diving into the depths.

And all of a sudden, the encounter you have been waiting for. A few meters away from you is one of the most majestic animals on the planet Earth.

Has this always been your dream? Then don’t wait any longer, come and enjoy a whale tour in Moorea with Ninamu Oceanic Tour.


A day on a private boat

The theme of the day is finding, observing and swimming with humpback whales, while respecting the approach rules that govern us in French Polynesia.

A day (8 hours) starts at 7 a.m., early so we are the first out on the water, starting with a briefing on approaches, safety and the different conditions for swimming with whales.

The boat is privatized, it’s just for you, so we’re always ready to listen to your requests. On board, you’ll be offered snorkeling equipment, a snack, a meal and drinks.

During the tour, we’ll also have the chance to observe other pelagic species (from the open sea), as well as rays, sharks, turtles and dolphins.

Our team, made up of a captain and an oceanic guide, may suggest the various observations that can be made around the island of Moorea, depending on the weather, sea conditions and your snorkeling level.
