Author: Sam Campbell
Welcome Back: Wendy M., Sarah F, Bruce T & Alexx

Always good to welcome back old friends and this trip was no exception. Wendy, Bruce, & Sarah are all regular Nai'a passengers in Fiji and chose to come for a Tonga Whale Expedition. They were not disappointed. Alexx Edwards(Nai'a owner) also couldn't resist taking advantage of being the boss and joined in for some whaley fun.

This trip the weather was not playing ball, but Nai'a is a great platform to watch whales in any conditions. Wind picks up, swell is coming - no problem for this group of gung ho guests. With her long serving crew and 17 years of seasonal whale watching under her belt all the best bays and shelter are well known. This is usually a time for searching close into shore, looking for mothers and calfs.

Comments

“Joann & I had a remarkable experience here in Tonga! Our diving trips mostly entail liveaboard boats and this one was the best yet – great crew & great food! You are fortunate to have the ownership in place to allow you to do it right! We won’t easily forget our “Whale Week” on NAI’A – it’s a once-in-a-lifetime gig!!”
