Our guests had the time of their lives interacting with majestic humpback whales (including a sighting during a scuba dive!) and have left with memories to last a lifetime.

We're already into the second half of our Tonga Humpback Whale 2018 season and it just keeps getting better..... Whales EVERYWHERE!
Joined by Immersed Imaging and their guests, this trip was a photography extravaganza! And, my goodness, have we got some stunning humpback images to share with you...
There's nothing more enjoyable than nine days at sea with a group of lovely people who all delight in each other's company.... Oh, and many, many humpback whales of course!
What a first trip of the 2018 Humpback Whale season! A phenomenal bull run, gorgeous moms and calves, playful youngsters, a dancing trio. And to top it off, a successful rescue of an entangled Humpback.
Passengers and crew from NAI’A freed a humpback whale that was dangerously entangled in rope and chain in Ha’apai, Kingdom of Tonga.
Dive, Eat, Sleep.... Repeat?! Not this month! Slightly outside the norm of what we usually do here on NAI'A, we have been on an incredible month-long trip (or 'DXpedition'!) with a group of HAM radio enthusiasts to Baker Island. Truly a once in a lifetime adventure....
What an incredible trip with the wonderful divers from REEF (Reef Environmental Education Foundation)! Visibility was astounding, conditions were calm and everyone did a good job of identifying Fiji's (900+) fish species!
Crystal clear viz, beautiful soft corals and magical mantas... what a way to end May!
What a special trip! Manta rays, eagle rays, hammerhead sharks....we LOVE May in Fiji!
Hammerhead sharks, grey reefs, eagle rays, Nigali Passage and stunning Fiji weather come together to make this a trip our guests will never forget!
Mantas, sharks and stunning weather made this a trip of a lifetime!
Though Mother Nature threw many obstacles at us on this charter, this gang was up for the challenge!
Good people = good times! Despite challenging conditions thrown at us from Mother Nature, these amazing people were an absolute pleasure to have onboard and to dive with!
Majestic Mantas were the highlight of this week's charter!
