Rodolphe is a marine biologist, underwater photographer, and dive instructor - and one of very few people in the world qualified to not only swim closely with whales, but also touch them.

As the ideal conditions for the magnificent creatures to give birth and breed in peace and tranquility, ever year from July to November, humpback whales migrate from the icy waters of the Antarctic to feed on the warm ocean surrounding The Islands of Tahiti. 

Based on Moorea, Rodolphe’s specialist understanding of whale behaviour offers adventure-seeking guests the chance to explore the underworld that the whales call home for a few months of the year.
