The world's friendliest humpback, a dancing duo and a few proud mommas showing off their calves: words and photos don’t do this trip justice, but what memories!

Among the great rewards on this charter: a 3 hour non-stop, multi-whale breaching display and a peaceful 90 minute mom and calf session of dreams!
That magic moment when you first make eye to eye contact with a 45' humpback whale will stay with you forever!
Tonga Humpback Whales 2018 is a wrap! Our 22nd season: characterised by unique whale behaviour not before witnessed by us plus really wonderful guests.
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!
“NAI’A made a believer out of me! Fiji has been grossly underrated by both divers and scientists. Incredible fishes here and definitely worthy of protection.”
