Notes

  • Sightings of Spinner dolphins are most often made within the protected waters of the lagoon. 
  • Sea and weather conditions permitting, you may also venture just outside the reef to see other species. 
  • Dolphins are sighted on 95% of all tours, and the naturalist’s in-depth commentary and the magnificent views of Moorea's coastline promise a rewarding experience even if no dolphins are sighted. 
  • This tour has also been featured on both the Discovery Channel and Animal Planet.

 

Join renowned American marine biologist Dr. Michael Poole in search of wild, free-ranging dolphins (and whales in season), and savour Moorea?s dramatic beauty from the sea.

Excursion Description

Join renowned American marine biologist Dr. Michael Poole in search of wild, free-ranging dolphins (and whales in season), and savour Moorea’s dramatic beauty from the sea. 

Look out for spinner dolphins and the slightly larger rough-tooth dolphins that inhabit the waters around Moorea all year round. Humpback whales are also present from July through to October. If the sea/weather conditions permit, you may also venture outside the reef to see other species. You will enjoy commentary on the lives and habits of these fascinating marine mammals throughout the expedition. 

This tour has been featured on both the Discovery Channel and Animal Planet.

If you've been on a Carnival shore excursion and had a great time, why not tell the world how much fun you had, so everyone else knows the best places to find fun? And if your shore excursion experience was less than perfect - well, that's perfectly alright too - we'd like you to share your experience here too. The more reviews that are left, the better a resource this is for everybody.

How to leave a great review

All you need to do is share your honest opinions. (Just make sure it doesn't include personally-identifying information or pricing information.) Try to remember as many details as you can about your experience - the more you can add to it, the better. We'll also ask you to score the excursion based on Value, Convenience... and perhaps most importantly, Fun.

Why reviews are important

Reviews help cruisers just like you make more informed decisions when planning ways to spend their time ashore. They also help Carnival understand which shore excursion operators are providing our guests with fun experiences that meet their expectations, so that we can constantly improve our shore excursion lineup across all ports of call that Carnival visits.
