We would prefer you to bring your own snorkelling gear, however we do have limited sizes of fins and a few masks available if necessary. If there are children in the party, you will need to bring snorkelling gear for them.
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 Neiafu, Ha’apai & ‘Eua.)
