Whale watching in Moorea: examples of socialization behaviors
The island of Moorea is one of the best places in the world for whale watching, but the trips are unique and different. Some prefer the morning, others think that the afternoon is more interesting and yet from one day to another, the trips in Moorea are not the same.
It is very random, there are the weather conditions in French Polynesia that can vary between July and November, the wind, the current, the swell, the rain that come and go. The quality of visibility in the Moorea lagoon depends on this, as well as the launching conditions. The situations of whale watching also vary: The whale calf that was playing, now decides to rest, its mother who accepted our presence decides to move. Or, watch him from the surface or staying at a certain depth while he plays, jumps, observes us.
Male humpback whales can be in a static position or engage in a game of intimidation towards other males with their pectoral or caudal fins. The male escorts follow the females and wait for their advances. Anyway, we will meet these beautiful creatures and their young in the greatest respect.
