No Whales, Disappointing Excursion!
Sue_C, Oct 2021
We went out and the Guides were good but there were no whales. They try but it was a let down. I understand they are wild animals but it ends up being a really expensive boat ride. They did offer water, soft drinks, and juice. There were no meals, no whales and just a long boat ride to nowhere. I would caution anyone taking this tour and be prepared to not see them. Apparently it hasn’t been a good week for seeing whales. Maybe you will get lucky and see them, and then maybe you won’t. It was a lot of money to gamble on and lose for this excursion. I would do this in Moorea or somewhere else for the time being.

Best time ever

could't have asked for a better time whale watching. Captain and mate did all they could to find whales including using the hydrophone to listen for them. find them they did a mom and her calf. got to swim with them.
