We are sorry to hear of your disappointment with the boat provided for your tour. We are running these adventure tours in a remote location and in an undeveloped nation with very limited access to many of the resources that first world tourism ventures would...More
We spent 4 days on the Ashlee G. Villi the skipper and William the whale guide were great. They ensured everyone was safe in and out of the water. The lunch/food was great. I can't comment on ease of booking etc as we were part...More
OMG, OMG, OMG! AMAZING experience! I selected a tour that allowed for five days out on the water. It's the open ocean so there are no guarantees, plus I'd read July wasn't a good time to be there, so I was concerned that should've selected...More
I've joined tour with 7 days on the water during September 2017.
Firstly I thank enormously much to Annah and her crew Noah, Nala and the rest of the team who managed and supported us wonderfuly to realize our dream; swimming with Humpbacks!
I can't say enough about the experience I just had with Annah, Noah and our crew on my WhaleSwim 6-day tour. Having such intimate encounters with one of the most majestic creatures on the planet is just mind-blowing and well worth the 30+ hours it...More

Yes we opened in Tahiti in 2016 and Trip Advisors has just allowed us to add Tahiti as a destination now. We have operated 8 tours in 2017 and 8 tours this year in Moorea, Tahiti. Our guests love it here. Only need 1/2 day... More
Yes we opened in Tahiti in 2016 and Trip Advisors has just allowed us to add Tahiti as a destination now. We have operated 8 tours in 2017 and 8 tours this year in Moorea, Tahiti. Our guests love it here. Only need 1/2 day on the water as the whales are just over the reef and easily accessible. This leaves 1/2 day for other activities or just to relax or explore the lagoon by kayak.
