Port: Moorea, Society Islands
Duration: 3.5 Hours

Join American marine biologist Dr. Michael Poole, a dolphin specialist in French Polynesia since 1987, or his assistant, for this combination eco-tour and research expedition focusing on wild, free-ranging dolphins. Depart the pier aboard a covered boat for the scenic ride to Moorea’s reef. Spinner dolphins and rough-tooth dolphins can be seen around Moorea, with spinner dolphins regularly swimming inside the lagoon. Most often you will see schools of acrobatic spinner dolphins, while listening to informative commentary about their remarkable life and society at sea. Dolphins are found on 95% of the tours, but the engaging narrative and sheer magnificence of Moorea’s coastline will ensure a rewarding time in any event. While viewing Moorea’s dramatic beauty from the sea, you will also learn about French Polynesia’s geology. Following your tour and time permitting, you may have an opportunity to go swimming or snorkeling at a coral garden directly from the boat before returning to the pier.

Please note: This tour is not a swim with the dolphins program, Wear a swimsuit under a cover-up, and bring sunscreen, a hat, sunglasses, and a towel from the ship. Operation of this tour is subject to guide availability.
