Having spent all of his childhood and adult life immersed in marine activity surrounding Moorea and French Polynesia, Pierrick decided to launch Moorea Moana Tours so that he may share his passion with others.

OUR VALUES

It is our goal to provide you an unforgettable experience and to also protect the marine environment. 

 

As a company and community that relies on the ocean ecosystem, it is our priority to respect the ocean and all of its wonderful life. We pride ourselves in never forcing interactions with the wildlife, respecting ocean conditions, and giving back to the environment. We use no single use plastic during our tours as well as removing any pollution from the water that we encounter during our time on the water. There is always reef safe sunscreen (no oxybenzone/butylparaben/octinoxate ingredients that harm coral) onboard for guests to use.  

Our priority lies both to guest safety and to respect of all wildlife we encounter during our tours. We will only enter the water with humpback whales after the biologist on board has observed their surface activity and deemed it safe for both the guests and the whales. Allowing the whales to continue their natural behavior, mating rituals, and migrational movements is vital for a healthy marine environment. 

You will be given a thorough briefing before the expeditions with information on safety protocol aboard the vessel, rules to follow for in water interactions, as well of educational information on the marine life and ecosystem of Mo'orea. We hope to not only provide you with an unforgettable experience, but we hope to inspire you to help conserve the marine environment.
