Tonga Whale Swim 2019

Updated: Nov 13, 2019

Here are some of the pictures from our latest whale swim tour 2019! We spent 9 incredible weeks in Vavau with our guests, swimming with whales, practicing yoga and testing our free diving skills in the tropics. It's always such an amazing adventure!

This whale season was phenomenal. We had interactions of all kinds from Humpback Whales to Pilot Whales, Dolphins and even a special guest- a Whale Shark! Its been the only year we have had these guys visit us and we all jumped in so excited, like kids!

The weather was mixed in the morning, with many days starting off with Rainbows but it was always hot and sunny by midday. The water was crystal clear, perfect for snorkelling and Freediving around the local caves.

At nights we would enjoy dinners together and laugh about the day. Once a week, we would go to our very special, vegan, chef's house- Andrea's, for a five course vegan degustation- simply the best!

Every day was a different experience. Sometimes we had pairs courting, some days we had mothers and calfs, on very lucky days we even got to jump onto a heat run, where all the boys race each other to win the heart of the "Miss Tonga" whale!

We had so many interactions with couples, mother and calfs and singing whales.

The days were finished with lovely Yin yoga and it was the connections and experiences we made that really makes the trips so special. By the end of the week we are like family!
