Tonga - Vava'u - Swim with Humpback Whales

Snorkeling with Humpback Whales! 

The beautiful, sheltered, Islands of Vava’u are the rendezvous point for the annual migration of Humpback whales escaping the harsh Antarctic winter. The protected waters close to the sea cliffs and islands provide an ideal environment for the birth of each year’s babies and an opportunity for prospective males to mate and create next year’s offspring.

Imagine sunbeams streaming down through sapphire blue water reflecting off the massive 40 ton, 15m long humpback whale as she poised motionless just above the sand 10m below. Tucked under her giant chin a baby whale also hung motionless staring eye to eye with the 5 strange creatures floating above on the surface. Eventually the desire to breathe every 10 – 15 minutes drove the baby to the surface but equally compelling was the curiosity of youth and the desire for play.
