  1. Snorkeling with Humpback Whales

If what increases your adrenaline is to be with the biggest mammal on earth, then this excursion is right for you!

Every year, beginning in June and ending in December, female humpback whales head to Tahiti to deliver their calves in the comfort of the warm waters of French Polynesia. At the same time, other adults come to find a new mate among the increased numbers of animals in the area while sheltered from their natural offshore predators.

There are only a few places in the world where we can still swim with these amazing animals, so don’t miss this chance while you are in French Polynesia!!

It consists of a half day trip observing and snorkeling with humpback whales.

French Polynesia Master

*Available only from August to mid-November.
