Imagine yourself immersed in the beautiful waters of Aitutaki and swimming beside one of gods beautiful and majestic creations, “The Humpback Whale” or how about a thrilling and exhilarating whale watching experience taking photos from the comfort of our boat.

The 2022/23 season to date rates as one of the best whale seasons ever. The number of pods, bulls running amuck with the heat run, mothers with their newborn calves circumnavigating Aitutaki’s outer reef using this as a safe haven to bring up their young ones.

From July thru to October, we can certainly bring this to fruition. It’s the warmer waters of the Pacific Ocean that attracts these migrating Humpback whales through the waters of the Cook Islands where the cows(mother) give birth to their calves(new born). Once the calves are strong & competent enough to hold their breaths for longer periods underwater, it is then that they make the arduous journey south to cooler Antarctic waters.

These close encounters with the Humpback whales are truly a humbling experience and a magical moment which will not only leave you in awe but will be etched in your hearts and minds forever!
