Mo’orea Itinerary

AUG 1 - AUG 15, 2024

On each of the whale-seeking days, we’ll gather at the beach in the morning and send out our loving group intentions to connect with the whales. We’ll then walk a few steps to the pier, board the boat and off we’ll go on whale seeking swims.  These days will be followed by late afternoon gatherings for sharing experiences and star gazing, as we seek to find shooting stars!

Included: 

7–14-night accommodations in your private luxury suite or bungalow.

5-10 morning whale-seeking boat rides/swims led by a local sea guide.

Private car rentals (not included) can be made in advance and available at our resort, so there will be no need to visit a car rental shop.  Please send an email request if you so desire.  Otherwise, we will take group taxis and tours.
