In an effort to give back to the oceans, YachtAid Global and Tahiti Private Expeditions have teamed up in the South Pacific and beyond to provide an immersive and educational experience for both yacht owners, and yacht charter clients alike focusing on the conservation of critical migration corridors for sharks, manta rays, sea turtles, and billfish along routes.

These corridors play a critical role in the migration of these species as they seek to reach new feeding grounds and protected pupping areas.

Operation Swimway provides much-needed support to the scientific community and affords all participants the pride of knowing they contributed to the preservation efforts of the seas they enjoy and the animals that live within.

Participating yachts, guests and crew, will have the opportunity to work side by side with distinguished members of the scientific community, assist with dives, operate underwater equipment, tag, measure and learn hands-on conservation methods and science.

Working with superyacht clients in French Polynesia and beyond over the past 15 years planning and filming over 350 Superyacht expeditions in 35 different worldwide destinations, Tahiti Private Expeditions (TPE) creates “a trip of a lifetime, to remember for a lifetime”.

The team of professional guides, including marine naturalists, dive instructors and professional underwater photographers at TPE provide bespoke expedition and dive leadership for participating yachts while capturing all the beauty of the marine ecosystem in award-winning fashion.
