Alternating swim drops (max 4 people in the water at once by regulation)

Why fly further if you have the best whale swim and activities on Tongatapu?
5 Days or longer whale swim packages
Many visitors are not aware that Tongatapu, together with 'Eua, are actually the islands with fewer amount of whale swim operators - 7 operators & 9 boats for Tongatapu and 3 operators & 5 boats on 'Eua.
Compared to Vava'u (22 operators and 37 boats)
and Ha'apai (8 operators and 15 boats)
With fewer operators in Tongatapu and 'Eua we can offer a better whale swim experience combined with a lot more tour and activity options on the main island (kayaking, Tsunami rock, the famous blowholes, Tongan floor shows, the local Tongan artisanal market, freshwater caves,...)
With all those options and given we are a local operator we can help you put the perfect package together - we know the right accommodation based on your budget, the right types of activities based on your interests and we combine all that with the right amount of time swimming with the whales over an extended period (5 or more days).
Our goal is to provide you with an amazing experience - the easiest way to to discuss your needs and tell you what the best options are in terms of your budget and time available - we look forward hearing from you!!!
