TONGA 2018

This trip will be one of the best in-water experiences in your life.

We offer comfortable accommodations during your trip.You’ve likely traveled a long way to swim with these beautiful creatures, and we feel that we’ve created the island’s best experience — for both the snorkelers and the whales. Come join us and meet the humpback whales of Tonga for yourself.

We keep our groups small, with only 7 guests per trip — this allows for maximum time with the whales. Each trip features 5 days in the water with the whales, weather-perming. On in-water days, we try to be on our private boat by 7 a.m. so that we can be one of the first boats out looking for the whales. Sometimes we spot them right away; some days it takes a little time. Every day is different, and every encounter is different.

Our trips offer in-water encounters with humpback whales, including mothers and calves. Tongan law allows 4 swimmers in the water at one time, along with an accredited whale guide. Thusly, our guests are split into two groups of three, who will enter the water along with the guide, and Nadia Aly (the group leader) and the cameraman Roberto Ochoa. These small groups allow for an amazing, intimate encounter with these gentle giants.
