Whale Watching: Meet the whales sail for the whale loving 

The Whale Loving

From July to September we go to meet the humpback whales, our concept: Whale Loving, approach whales sail respecting their tranquility.

The ultimate goal of Whale Loving is to put on hold under sail with a group of whales and wait until they come to our contact: emotions guaranteed!

Each year during the austral winter - July to September - humpback whales, Megaptera novaeangliae , join the south lagoon of New Caledonia after a migration of more than 8000 kilometers from the Antarctic Ocean. The Arctic Ocean is nutrition area, their diet consisting essentially of krill (small shrimp) that abounds in this region.

In the tropical waters of New Caledonia they come to breed and give birth to calves. Enjoy these marine mammals, measuring 12 to 16 meters and weighing 30 to 40 tons is an amazing show. To preserve their presence and avoid disturbing them in their antics, Captain Woodin invites you to meet the sail (no motor noise).

On the boat we avoid pursue, hunt or disturb whales and especially mothers and their calves. The goal is to get in position to sail with them, and wait until they come to our contact. What more intense than observing these animals in their natural environment by respecting their tranquility?

The Whale Loving a new approach with more respect and understanding of emotion.

Become a Whale Lover, and let you tame these majestic animals!
