Stop At: Tongatapu Island, Tongatapu Island
You will be picked up from your hotel at approx. 8am and taken to the Wharf for your safety briefing.
The boat will travel at a slow, calm and unhurried pace at 8 knots an hour. With patience and a slow relaxed pace, we minimize disturbance to the whales. Once the whales are sighted, it may take an hour to two hours, to slowly follow at a safe distance. We are conscious that whales do not feel harassed or disturbed so it gives them time to adjust to our approach.
The humpback whales can easily swim fast away from us, but our crew’s experience takes time to build up the whales’ curiosity and trust, so instead of swimming away from us, the whales actually stop most times, turn and approach us.When the weather is sunny, and sea conditions calm with low wind speeds, successful encounters are extremely high.
You can choose to swim with the whales, OR you can watch from the boat if you’d prefer. Time permitting of course, you’ll be able to dive into the location’s crystal clear waters and explore the fascinatingly gorgeous world beneath our own.
The boat will return by 3pm and you will be transferred back to you town hotel.
