Last Tonga charter: super-interactive moms and calves, song so loud we could hear it above water and the hottest heat runs of the year!
NAI'A's Blog: The Divemaster Diary - Whale Tales
Multiple high-adrenalin bull runs, a gorgeous little calf playing peekaboo from under momma’s fluke and a mom-calf-escort trio noisily chit-chatting to each other
Old babies, new babies and fierce competition to father next year's baby. The action heats up in the middle of the Tonga whale season.
Rowdy bull runs, hyperactive breaching babies, whale song you could FEEL, and an escort throwing its weight around, shared with Secret Sea Visions.
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....
“We’ve been on other liveaboards – this is by far the best. Crew, food, sites – everything fantastic!!! Amanda – thanks for saving my ears & Joshua – thanks for saving Steve! The boat layout is top notch & the rooms are great. Thanks so much for an excellent trip.”
