We have been looking for a new place out of the crowds to take you swimming with our gentle giants of the sea. And we found the heavenly, paradise island of Aiutaki in the Cook Islands (Voted the most beautiful island in the world by Lonely Planet). You will be astonished by the beauty of this atoll. The name Aiutaki means "Little Paradise" and we couldn't agree more, especially when we can go swimming with our humpback whales!

This new destination is extremely special as only two boat operators are allowed with the whales, leaving us the priviledge of unstressed animals just for us!

 

We offer personally-escorted, small group ‘snorkelling with whales’ eco-tours in this new destination you will never forget!

Please Note: we do not operate day-trips on random dates with the whales
