The Best Whale Swimming Experience in Tonga!
Have you ever dreamed of swimming with whales? Thanks to Majestic Whale Encounters, your dream can become a reality.
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.
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. 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 Whale Watch International, promoting responsible dolphin and whale watching worldwide and abiding by the rules and regulations set by Whale and Dolphin Conservation (WDC). 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.
The whales you will see
When Whale watching, you are likely to come across humpbacks. 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. Enquire online today!
