The Best Whale Swimming Experience in Tonga!
Have you ever dreamed of swimming with whales? With Majestic Whale Encounters that dream can become reality.
Every year from the end of July to October, Humpback whales visit the tropical nothern islands of Tonga. They migrate here in large numbers to mate and give birth.
In the crystal blue waters of Ha’apai we are privileged to enter the water with these majestic mammals of the ocean, interact with them and experience their world. We follow all non-invasive guidelines set by the Responsible Partnership for Whale Watching and Majestic Whale Encounters understands that it is an honour not a right to share their world with them.
Come with us to experience the magic of the humpback whale,swim with them in their world. Live your dream!
In 2014 we will be running personalised eco tours taking small groups of 4-8 people to the turquoise waters of Ha’apai for an experience that will live in your memory forever. If you’ve always wanted to Swim with whales in Tonga we have a liveaboard option where you can spend days and nights with these Angels of the Sea. Or you might opt to stay on land in one of our beautiful beachside resorts. See our TOURS page for details.
When you come on tour with Majestic Whale Encounters we are there with you every step of the way. You will feel as though you are part of the Majestic Family before the tour even starts. Your experience with us will be as carefree as possible.
So tick this one off that bucket list and let us help make the dream a reality!

They have fleshy knobs on the ridges near the head, and their flippers are one third of their body length. As active swimmers, breaching, rolling, tail lobbing, and spyhopping are common behaviours.
