Ia ora na dear partners,
You have been informed that the InterContinental Moorea Resort & Spa will launch a renovation program for its Overwater Bungalows throughout 2019.
During this period, the Moorea Dolphin Center team will optimize the well-being of the dolphins in their environment by setting up and monitoring scientific, technical and veterinary protocols.
Due to the proximity of the renovation area around the Moorea Dolphin Center lagoon, we have also decided to only maintain the MITI and MOANA programs starting January 2nd, 2019.
Our priority remains the well-being of our dolphins, as a result, we will do our utmost to maintain in 2019 the frequency and quality of our educational and interactive programs that we have been offering you for the last 20 years.
