Eco-travel in The Islands of Tahiti

November 6, 2019 in Experience

In reality The Islands of Tahiti are as magnificent as the images portray – with crystal clear water, lush greenery, silky-smooth sandy beaches, and the friendliest locals, it’s a destination that everyone really needs to experience, at least once in their lifetime.


The area is so beautifully kept because the locals are so proud of their surroundings and work hard to preserve the natural habitats of hundreds of land and water species, though conservation programmes and eco initiatives.


Several of the accommodation options that work hard to preserve the local environment include Intercontinental Bora Bora Resort & Thalasso Spa, The Brando and Ninamu Resort. Along with the world’s first private Sea Water Air Conditioning (SWAC) which reduces energy demands by almost 70%, these resorts have a number of innovative eco programmes and technologies like solar panels and organic gardens. Handcrafted with natural, locally sourced materials, with the intention to offer luxury with minimal impact on the environment, these resorts are truly stunning.


A fabulous activity eco-conscious guests could take part in is the Majestic Whale Encounters Tahiti Whale Swimming Tour. The eco-tourism company aims to educate guests on the ecological wonders of The Islands of Tahiti whilst allowing them to immerse themselves in the luxury of cruising the truly glorious waters of the island of Moorea.


As the ideal conditions for the whales to breed and give birth in peace and tranquility, every year from August to November, humpback whales migrate from the icy waters of the Antarctic to feed on the warm, crystal clear ocean surrounding The Islands of Tahiti.


If the opportunity to swim alongside humpback whales in crystal clear waters isn’t enough to convince you, doing so aboard a luxury catamaran on an all-inclusive expedition set by Majestic Whale Encounters will be. With spaces available on a 6-night catamaran tour in September, there’s no time like the present to put your tax return to good use and book yourself the trip of a life time.
