Sept 18-27, 2023
Whale Expedition in Tahiti Huahine, Ta'ha, and Bora Bora
We want to share the beauty of Tahiti and explore the land and the culture of Polynesia. We believe that the world needs Aloha to survive and strive.
Join us on this lifetime expedition to immerse yourself in deep ancient teachings, swim with whales daily, ocean conservancy, and Polynesian culture.
Olowalu Whale Song Project
We will be providing you with live humpback whale songs from our home base in Maui.
Over the last 10 years we have been recording our Maui humpback whale songs on the SUP and kayaks. However, due to the strong wind conditions, we need better equipment.
We are raising funds to purchase a Zodiac boat. Once we reach our goal, our calendar will open for donors to book their boat trip to listen to the whale songs.
Who We Are
Ocean Defender Adventures's mission is to create awareness, educate, and helping fix the current problems the ocean is facing.
Through offering yearly expeditions in Tahiti, Founder and Expedition Leader, Oriana Kalama shares her love for the ocean and animals to best teach awareness through experience.
