Course of a whale watching trip in Moorea
You will observe humpback whales aboard Cata Manu in Moorea, a motor catamaran with large floats that will provide stability in the swell, and with an appreciable distance between participants. The dimensions of the hull, the large canopy protecting from the sun and rain are major assets for your comfort during your whale watching trip in French Polynesia.
The regulatory distance of approach of the boat is 100 meters. The captain, with his 20 years of experience, will know how to interpret the behavior of these majestic creatures and will explain the different situations: resting phase, presence of mother and baby whales, or juveniles, males escorting, search for breath, jumps, observation of flipper beats. In the presence of singing male humpback whales, the team will put the hydrophone in the ocean to make you hear their bewitching songs of these incredible marine mammals.
The Holy Grail is when all the conditions are right and he announces the possibility of getting into the water. He will give you instructions on how to equip yourself with fins, mask and snorkel and then swim discreetly to observe the whales.
