Description

A research team from the Island Research Center and Environmental Observatory on Moorea will take you on a morning boat tour to observe and learn all about dolphins living outside Moorea. This excursion is provided with a scientific and natural approach to the dolphin habitat. If conditions are right, you may even slip into the water with mask and snorkel to observe the animals underwater.

See schools of acrobatic Spinner Dolphins and learn about their remarkable behaviors and social organization. This species is the only one to spin vertically and horizontally in the air like a top ballerina.

From August to November you may also see some Humpback Whales, youth and adults, admire their grace, their impressive jumps and expressive eyes.

In addition, you will enjoy the stunning beauty of the Island of Moorea while explanations will be given about the natural and geological creation of the island and its "motu" (islets).

If time is available, you will have the opportunity to snorkel on the way back and discover the beautiful underwater world of the lagoon of Moorea.
