Moorea Dolphin Encounter

Encounter Atlantic bottlenose dolphins in a natural lagoon at an oceanfront resort, an unforgettable experience, as dolphins are exceptionally charismatic, social mammals.


After departing from the pier, you will soon arrive at the Intercontinental Moorea Resort and Spa, a luxurious property tucked between forested mountains and a crystal-clear lagoon. In addition to catering to guests, the resort serves as a sanctuary for marine animals such as sea turtles and Atlantic bottlenose dolphins.


During your orientation, the dolphin trainers will tell you all you've ever wanted to know about Atlantic Bottlenose dolphins: their anatomy, behavior, and habits. Then, you will ease into the lagoon's waist-deep water for an up-close encounter with these friendly, curious mammals. Dolphins are great acrobats and water ballet dancers and their impressive jumps and flips are fascinating to observe. Although each encounter will be different, you can expect the dolphins to gently approach, allowing you to touch them and you may also hear them communicating with clicks, squeaks and whistles, a system so complex scientists don't fully understand it.


Following your dolphin encounter, you will have time to shower and change before heading to the Dolphin Boutique where you and enjoy a refreshment and a bit of free time to shop before returning to the pier.


Note: This tour includes limited walking and done in waist high water area within the Intercontinental Moorea property lagoon, there's no swimming. The tour is not available to wheelchair guests and not considered suitable for those with mobility concerns as participants must be able to enter and exit the water with limited assistance. A swimsuit; change of clothing; sun cap; sunglasses; a towel from the ship; and reef shoes are recommended. No jewelry may be worn while in the water. Cameras are not allowed in the water; however, a photographer will be on hand taking pictures which you may purchase later. Those who participate in any water activities do so at their own risk and responsibility and should be comfortable in waist-high water. The local operator requires all participants to sign a liability waiver before being allowed to take part in the experience. Please be aware that dolphins remain wild animals and the tour can be canceled according to their behavior and in case of extreme weather conditions.
