South Sea

Snorkel with Humpback whales


This is an adventure of a lifetime… snorkel with Humpback Whales in the South Sea

These two journeys into the South Sea are a dream come true. Every day we are the first to greet the new day on this planet as the international dateline is not far away – you see, we are in the front line on Tonga!

At Moorea we are relaxed and very much laid back – we say Goodbye to the days on this planet.

In the tropical waters around these Polynesian islands, where the humpback whales of the southern hemisphere escape the Antarctic winter, these cetaceans mate with each other and spend the first few weeks with their new-born calves. This area is a unique place to encounter humpback whales in the blue element and to become part of their fascinating world – if only for one seemingly endless instant.

It might get rather lively as the males try to fight for the favour of the ladies, determined to pass on their genes. Gentle and affectionate, however, is the inseparable link between mothers and their calves, which are quite interested in us human beings and tend to eye us curiously.

A highly important matter on all our tours is respect – we are guests and the whales are our hosts. If the situation allows it, we submerge into to the turquoise water to wait and see what’s happening next… every encounter is a present.

We do not have a fixated program, the marine animals guide us through these valuable days. We drift on the fleeting tracks of these enchanting whales and listen to their complex songs under water surface.
In the swallow waters around the islands is also much more to see: coral gardens and richness in colourful fish. The Friendly Islands, how the islands are also called, await us with beautiful white beaches, the lush green silhouette of the island and the cheerful and sometimes chubby but always cheerful local Population.
