For an unforgettable experience this summer, consider diving with humpback whales or watching the world’s best surfers in the astounding setting of French Polynesia – all onboard 45m Big Fish.
Every year, from the end of July to October, Polynesian waters welcome scores of humpback whales (Megaptera novaeangliae) coming to mate and give birth before returning to the South Pole.
This narrow window is the ideal time to see these majestic beasts in the their natural habitat and for those seeking a unique holiday experience, what could be more memorable than to witness a mother (measuring 16m and weighing in at 40 tonnes!) playing with her young calf just below the surface, listening first hand to the haunting sound of whale song – especially from the decks of superyacht Big Fish, one of the only luxury yachts in the world to have a full-time marine biologist on her crew.
Whether diving or just with snorkel and flippers, observe these young families up close as they come to the warm tropical waters of French Polynesia. In the expert hands of the yacht’s dive instructors and led by a marine scientist, from Big Fish guests can observe the migration habits of this unique mammal up close and under safe, controlled conditions.
Adrenalin junkies might be drawn by the Billabong Pro surfing championships, held in Teahupoo – a must see for anyone who loves the sport. Billed as the world’s best surfers in the world’s heaviest wave, Billabong Pro Tahiti runs from 16 – 27 August.
