Overview

Swim with Humpback Whales in Tahiti, French Polynesia. Whale Watch Tahiti is the only dedicated Whale Watching Company in Tahiti, French Polynesia. We specialize in small group, non invasive tours to observe and photograph the Whales and Dolphins. When possible we also swim with Humpback Whales and Dolphins in their natural environment. Located on the island of Tahiti, Whale Watch Tahiti is ideally located to offer the most complete and exciting Whale watching adventure tours. We offer Whale watching tours every day between August and October. Tahiti also has a resident population of Spinner Dolphins that spend their days inside the lagoon. Whale Watch Tahiti offers Dolphin watching tours everyday of the year outside of the Whale watching season. Our small groups and private boat Whale and Dolphin watching tours are fun, safe, and respectful of the Whales and Dolphins. On the tour you can learn about the Whales and Dolphins while observing their natural behaviors, listening to them underwater with our marine microphone (hydrophone) and relive the adventure later with all the tour photos which are included (via DropBox). Whale Watch Tahiti is proud to support local Humpback Whale Photo ID conservation and research programs. We believe it is our responsibility to give something back for all that the whales and dolphins give to us! Join Whale Watch Tahiti for the most complete, premium Humpback Whale swim, Whale watching and Dolphin watching tours on Tahiti, French Polynesia!
