  • Picture Adventure is known for searching the world for the most amazing wildlife encounters: not booking guests on existing trips – but building them.  After years of scouting locations for the great humpback encounters, we are pleased to offer our own corner of the Pacific for peaceful, relaxed and amazing humpback encounters.

    An Isolated Paradise

    Before you even go to sea, your experience will be unique.  Reaching our island base, you are transported to what the world looked like before mass tourism, before hotel chains, before fast food. Staying in a lovely resort located on what is often called the most beautiful lagoon in the world, you will experience a place where doors are never locked, and everyone knows each other .

    A Beautiful Ocean

    And then there is the sea.  Boasting among the the highest visibility in the world, you will snorkel reefs of dazzling color and diversity, teeming with fish.  There are always eagle rays and turtles to be seen, along with parrot fish, reef sharks and more.

    And Then The Whales

    Humpbacks come to the quiet waters of our little paradise to raise their calves and rest before they return to the cold and rugged waters of the Antarctic.  In incredible visibility, with few others around, you will have ample chances to swim with these incredible creatures.  On most swims, you will hear their beautiful singing floating through the depths – sometimes so strong it reverberates right through your body. Our incredible boat is spacious and comfortable, covered from the sun, and big enough to stretch out and rest between your whale encounters.
