2016 Eco-Tours in Vava’u, Tonga and Moorea, Tahiti – Dates & Information below. . . . 

Every year between July – October each year since 1999, we have successfully operated ‘swim with humpback whales’ eco–packaged tours in the beautiful untouched islands of Vava’u Tonga, where the largest population of the humpback whales reside during this time. All of our tours focus on small group whale encounters for intimate, yet exhilarating experiences that will stay with you for many years to come! Like many who have joined us, you will be back for more!

(Our specially designed all inclusive eco-tours are NOT comparable with day-trips from island resorts or from jetty’s in Vava’u, Ha’apai & ‘Eua or 1/2 day trips from all islands of French Polynesia.)

PLEASE NOTE: We DO NOT operate day tours.
