Add To Plan

Join marine biologist Dr. Michael Poole, a French-Polynesian dolphin specialist since 1987, or his assistant, for this combination eco-tour and research expedition focusing on wild, free-ranging dolphins.

Depart the pier aboard a covered boat for the scenic ride to Moorea's reef. Spinner dolphins, the slightly larger rough-tooth dolphins and pilot whales can be seen around Moorea, with spinner dolphins regularly swimming inside the reef. With a little luck, you will see schools of acrobatic spinner dolphins while listening to informative commentary about their remarkable life and society at sea.

During your tour, you will also learn about French Polynesia's geology and evolution while viewing Moorea's dramatic beauty from the sea. Dolphins are found on 95% of the tours, but the engaging narrative and sheer magnificence of Moorea's coastline will ensure a rewarding time. Guests visiting between July and early November may also have an opportunity to view the humpback whales perform their annual mating and calfing rituals.

Time permitting, you will have an opportunity to go swimming directly from the boat before being transferred back to the pier.

Please note: This tour is not a swim with the dolphins and is mostly seated. The tour is not available to wheelchair guests and those with mobility concerns are cautioned to carefully evaluate their personal level of stamina and ability. Swimwear worn under a cover-up; sun cap; sunglasses; biodegradable sunscreen; a towel from the ship; and flat, comfortable walking shoes or aquasocks are recommended. There are no restrooms or changing facilities on board the boat. Operation of this tour is subject to guide availability.
