Swim with Humpback Whales in Tahiti

2024 Trips SOLD OUT

The Trip

On our 7 day expedition, we’ll spend 5 days on the crystal clear waters of Tahiti, swimming with humpback whales and any other ocean animals we come across (like eagle rays and sea turtles).


With our own private boat and experienced skipper and guide we’ll be free to explore the ocean and secure the best in-water interaction possible with the whales . Underwater photographer Daniel Nicholson (@barefoot.wandering) and marine biologist Noemi Merz will accompany us in the water at all times.

Who Can Join?

Anyone who can swim! All the in-water activities will be snorkelling, so you don't need any qualitifications. This is the best way to see the whales, as they are always coming up to the surface to breathe.

You should be a comfortable swimmer for this trip, as we will be swimming 100 metres from the boat to where the whales will be, and then back again afterwards.

Travel Insurance

Travel insurance is mandatory for this trip. Must include emergency medical care, cancellation policy and cover snorkelling.


Prices are based on a shared occupancy (either double bed or twin beds). If you would like a private room for a single, please contact me.


A deposit of $1,200 USD is required to secure your spot.

Group Size

We will have a small group size (6-8 people) for this trip.
A minimum of 5 people are required to confirm the trip.
