Dr. Michael Poole is the South Pacific's leading marine mammal expert and his dolphin & whale watching tour does NOT disappoint. I was hesitant as I thought the tour might be boring or uneventful and both were not true at all. Dr. Poole is extremely knowledgeable and entertaining. His amazing captain expertly maneuvers the boat so the animals are just... 更多
We really enjoyed Dr. Poole's tour. We were fortunate to see dolphins and humpback whales - and even captured a whale breaching. The only thing that would have made this tour better is if we would have had the opportunity to get in the water with the dolphins. Regardless, it was great and highly recommended!
As with all things nature it's the luck of the draw. However, Dr Poole went out of his way to try to find the dolphins and whales that we'd all hoped for. We came across a mother and her calf and we were able to snorkel extremely close to them for over 5 minutes. It was truly a once in... 更多
We visited Moorea early October and it was our first tour that we took during our trip to the French Polynesia. Dr. Poole was a nice knowledgeable guide and researcher who is from the US. The half day tour was ok, but not the best that I have been on. We had no luck with getting in the water to... 更多
Educational, entertaining, and you'll never get closer to sea life, except by accident. Dr. Poole and team will leave you asking for more. This is a must!
This was a wonderful experience where we saw a humpbacked female and her calf! Dr Poole was so knowlegable and passionate about whales, he really came 2nd best to the whales. We did not see dolphins as they were in the other direction but wouldn't have missed the whales for anything. A real worthwhile trip.
If you're going to do this type of tour, this is the group to do it with. Dr. Poole has been doing research in Moora for many years and he knows his stuff (to say the least). We saw sea turtles, dolphins, and TWO humpback whales - both of them breaching. I've never seen anything like it in my life.
This was a great tour. Where to start. Transfer from the hotel (after insisting that this was the tour I wanted) to a jetty. Great to be able to step into a boat rather than wading out to sea and climbing in. Good seats, all in rows. If you are seated on the whale side the other row can stand.)... 更多
Saw lots of spinner dolphins, sea turtles and had the opportunity to get in the water to see two whales up close. Strict guidelines of holding on to a floating ring while the guide tows you to a place to watch the whales. Groups of around 8 got to spend ten minutes approx in the water then returned to the... 更多
