Why Come With Us?
If you come on tour with Majestic Whale Encounters from the time you step foot on the main island of Tonga EVERYTHING is taken care of by us. From your domestic flights, detailed itineraries, what to expect, what not to expect, transfers, meals, snorkelling equipment, How to “swim with whales” literally everything you can think of is taken care of by us! We invite you in as part of our family and we will guide you every step of the way!
Domestic Flights are included and organised by us!
We even include a night on the mainland when you arrive to give you a night to relax before the tour begins (especially helpful for late night international arrivals)
With a maximum of only 8 guests per tour this ensures a maximised personal interaction with the whales. Ensuring your precious time swimming with whales is one to remember. The accomodation provider we choose is the very best on the island and all bungalows are absolute beachfront that opens onto the most amazing snorkelling reef you can imagine.
Why choose the islands of Ha’apai? We have only a very small handfull of operators in Ha’apai compared to the high tourism in neighbouring islands- this makes for a peaceful day on the ocean with the whales. Most days we don’t see another boat on the water, this adds to our secluded island getaway maximising our time with the whales and minimising the stress to the whales.
How fantastic to wake up in your beachfront bungalow and walk only a few steps to the beach where your boat picks you up for your days with the whales! In Ha’apai’s crystal blue waters, we are fortunate enough to be able to interact with these majestic mammals of the ocean in their breathtaking underwater environment.
There are also an incredible amount of whales that use the Ha’apai islands as their nursery and playgrounds for the months of July-October Every year from the end of July to October, Humpback whales visit the tropical northern islands of Tonga. They migrate here in large numbers to mate and give birth.
The Responsible Partnership for Whale Watching has set down guidelines to ensure that all interactions with these animals are non-invasive, and we take these guidelines very seriously. At Majestic Whale Encounters, we strongly believe that it’s an honour rather than a right to share the ocean with these magnificent creatures. Come with us to swim with the whales in Tonga, and experience the magic of the humpback whale in its natural environment. Live your dream… Majestic Whale Encounters are proud to be an active member of The World Cetacean Alliance, promoting responsible dolphin and whale watching worldwide and abiding by the set rules and regulations As an environmentally conscious company, we are proud to be one of the few “green eco-tours” in Tonga that take people out to watch and swim with these giants of the ocean.[/column]
The Whales You Will See
When Whale watching, you will see and swim with humpback whales. The tropical waters of Tonga are both the mating and calving grounds for humpbacks, an endangered species who migrate from Antarctica to these warmer waters annually. Humpback whales (Megaptera novaeangliae) are baleen whales that grow to an average of 19 meters (62 feet) long once mature. Their flippers are a third of the length of their body, and they have fleshy knobs on the ridges near the head. Being quite active swimmers, they often partake in rolling, breaching, spy hopping and tail lobbing. Whether you want to swim with these gentle giants, or go whale watching in Tonga, Majestic Whale Encounters can provide you with the experience of a lifetime. Read more
