Humpback Whales and Open Ocean Safari
Mo’orea, French Polynesia
September 13 - 20, 2019
September 21- 28, 2019
September 29 - October 6, 2019
October 7 - 14, 2019
Humpback whales, dolphins, sharks and other pelagic species. Mo’orea is one of the few places in the world where you can swim with Humpback whales. From July to November, whales visit Mo’orea to nurse their young or in search of a mating partner. This is also a very good
area for other pelagic encounters. Several species of dolphins, sharks and rays are also abundant in these waters.
In Mo’orea you have a high chance of in-water encounters. This will be determined by the guide, depending on the situation every day. To increase our chance of swimming with them, we will do 6 full days searching for Humpbacks and other marine species. The safety of our guests and the marine life is our No. 1 priority. Although our primary focus will be to find the Humpback whales, there is also the chance to encounter
several species of sharks including tiger sharks. At least one day will be dedicated to look for tiger sharks in open ocean, we will use bait to bring them close.
Baja Peninsula, Mexico
November 1 - 7, 2019
November 8 - 14, 2019
Off the coast of the Southern Baja Peninsula in Mexico, a rare event takes place. Thousands of Striped Marlins aggregate in search of their next meal.
This is a rich pelagic area, where you can find different species throughout the year. Rarely visited by divers until a few years ago, this is a good place to see sharks, bait balls, bill fish and other species. Anything can happen in this pelagic playground.
We will start our trip from La Paz, BCS and take our private shuttle for a 3-4 hr ride north to a fishing community close to Lopez Mateos that since a few years ago started to focus on ecotourism.
This is a remote area still not very popular to divers with fantastic opportunities for pelagic encounters. Striped Marlin (Kajikia audax) unlike other marlin species will school to hunt, just like sailfish do. We will spend 5 days looking for marlin and sardines as well as other pelagic species in the open ocean.
