Whale watching, scuba diving, snorkeling and boat tour with Mobydick in Tahiti in French Polynesia

Easily accessible from the west coast, 27 km from Papeete, the Aquatika marina offers the possibility of discovering the marine fauna in an uncrowded area of Tahiti Nui, between Paea and the motus of Mataiea. In the company of passionate and experienced guides, come and experience beautiful aquatic adventures, with the peninsula of Tahiti and the sister island of Moorea as a background.

Philosophy and approach to cetaceans

French Polynesia, at the heart of the South Pacific Ocean, is renowned for its biological diversity and marine macro-fauna. It welcomes in its waters many species of fish, turtles, birds and marine mammals. In 2002, it was classified as a sanctuary for marine mammals, and all shark species have been protected there since 2012.

The encounter with cetaceans, and  particularly with whales, is done with the greatest gentleness, while respecting the local law.

The exploration area is uncrowded, which allows us to make respectful approaches, the welfare of the animal being one of our priorities.

 

An analysis phase of whale behavior makes it possible to establish a first contact.

If releases are possible, we adopt a passive behavior and we leave the choice to the animal to swim towards us… or not.. Nevertheless, their curiosity is contagious and this approach is often rewarded with great interactions.
