Trip hosted by Taylor Cunningham in partnership with Moorea Moana Tours.

I have been lucky enough to spend many months in French Polynesia over the last three years and I am so excited to share some of the most special experiences I've ever had with you. Diving with humpback whales is truly like nothing else and this trip is sure to be unforgettable.

Wildlife of Mo'orea

Every winter in the Southern Hemisphere humpback whales migrate away from Antarctica to warmer, tropical waters. Between the months of July and November the whales arrive to the islands of French Polynesia to socialize, mate, and reproduce.

French Polynesia is one of just a few places in the world where it is legal to swim with humpback whales. Observing whales from in the water is a life changing experience. The humpbacks are sure to leave you in awe.

Our main objective for this trip will be to view humpback whales from in the water. Each day will be spent out in the blue searching for whales and other marine life. We will be looking for special moments where the whales will hopefully choose to interact with us.

The lagoon around Mo'orea hosts a variety of wildlife in crystal clear, shallow waters. We will have the opportunity to encounter sharks, rays, reef fish, and more as we explore the lagoon.
