Tonga Humpback Whales 2018 is a wrap! Our 22nd season: characterised by unique whale behaviour not before witnessed by us plus really wonderful guests.
NAI'A's Blog: The Divemasters' Diary - Whale Tales
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.
Our guests worked hard this charter, putting in many hours on the skiffs: but boy did it pay off! We had some VERY (up) Close (and personal) Encounters....
In this, our penultimate Tonga 2017 charter, we were treated to astounding displays of nature: sail tailing duos, wide-mouthed mommas and the throwing of peduncles left, right and centre!
Dodging out the way of an overenthusiastic baby humpback? Check. Chilling with an upside down momma for an hour? Check. Impromptu dance party in the salon? CHECK! What a WILD charter....
We had the BEST charter with this energetic, enthusiastic group of Thais! And they were rewarded with some true once in a lifetime experiences.
Straight from the get-go, this trip was high action and high adrenaline....we were treated to such an extraordinary series of events!
We couldn't have asked for a more FINtastic start to our 2017 humpback whale season!
We have combed through the hundreds of photos contributed by dozens of photographers from this whale-swimming season in Tonga to come up with the 30 best!
A jovial group of Russians, Kazakhs & Belarusians experience the trip of a lifetime with plenty of sunshine, whales and of course vodka
“We loved every minute of our time with you in Tonga! It could not have been any better. Each and every member of the NAI’A team was outstanding and each of you made our whale expedition unforgettable. The whales, the hospitality, the guides, the skiff driving, the dinners and the singing and kava… Everything was wonderful. It was the best honeymoon ever!”
