The Kingdom of Tonga is a beautiful destination in its own right but it's become famous in recent years as the global epicentre of swimming with Humpback Whales. We are delighted to have the chance to introduce you safely and sustainably, to Tonga's largest and most charismatic inhabitants.

Your 6-day tour starts the moment you land in Tonga when we pick you up from Nuku’Alofa airport and we transport you to the comfort of the seafront Tanoa Dateline hotel.

Your arrival will either be late afternoon (Saturday flight arrivals) or early in the morning (Monday/Tuesday night flight arrivals). The following day you can recuperate from your journey, sit by the pool or explore town. 

TOUR ITINERARY:  Saturday – Thursday

Saturday – arrive in Nuku’alofa.

Sunday – A statutory rest day in Tonga (chance to snorkel in front of the hotel).

Monday – 8AM-2PM boat trip to search for whales.

Tuesday – 8AM-2PM boat trip to search for whales.

Wednesday – 8AM-2PM boat trip to search for whales.

Thursday – Half day island tour. Return to the hotel by midday and check out at 1PM before lunch. Then transfer to the airport in time for your departure flight.

Meals are excluded. The restaurant provides vegetarian meals and other dietary requirements accommodated.

For three days we will be heading to the harbour and boarding our vessel.

Our trips are with a Licensed Whale Swim operator and guides. We can cater for most experience levels, even younger children, though they must be competent swimmers and confident to be in the free ocean.
