With a marine biologist, enjoy a private tour aboard a Falcon 650 to explore the crystal clear waters of Moorea and observe its most beautiful underwater species from the boat and while snorkeling.

This “a la carte” tour will allow you, according to your level and desires, to make a selection of several options among the 5 activities suggested: Whale and dolphin swim, reef snorkeling, big blue discovery , shark and ray swim, underwater flying. Some incredible treasures are waiting to be discovered !

Study the animals’ behavior before getting into the water… Whatch the humpback whale and its whale calf, listen to the male singing, cross the road of some curious pilot whales and admire the dolphins’ acrobatic moves !

Join us into the blue, in the middle of blacktip sharks, grey sharks and lemon sharks. Often feared, these species are most endangered, this experience will give you the opportunity to get to know them. Head back into the lagoon afterwards in order to meet the sting rays which will be delighted to hug you.

Fly over the surroundings of Moorea thanks to the manta tow technique, which is mostly used by the scientists who identify marine  species. Towed behing a low-speed boat thanks to a special board, you will be able to stare at the coral gardens and underwater life like never before : turtles, leopard rays, barracudas and many others…

It is a unique adventure to interact with marine species in their natural environment.
