Join me!

in a crazy once in a lifetime experience swimming with the majestic Humpback whales of French Polynesia!

Group 1: Sept 28 - Oct 05
Group 2: Oct 05-12 - FULL

Join me for an incredible 7 days trip in Moorea, French Polynesia: One of the only places in the world where you can swim with whales! We will be spending 5 days in the water looking for whales with our private boat to make sure we will get as many interactions as possible! But we won’t stop at the whales, we will also make sure to keep some time to go swim with stingrays, reef sharks and turtles. And if we are lucky we might even encounter some dolphins or other pelagic sharks and fish!

Is it for me?

If you are an ocean lover and a good fit swimmer  (capable of swimming a long time in wild open ocean) then yes it is! You don’t need to be a diver or freediver as we will only be snorkeling. 

You don’t particularly need to be a photographer to join the trip, I will be offering photography and editing workshops and giving advices to people who are interested but you are also more than welcome to join us without a camera or with just a gopro!

I’m bilingual French/English so you are more than welcome to join the tour if you speak one of these 2 languages! I will make sure to always translate everything for everyone.
