I’m excited to announce that in 2026 I’ll be heading back to Ha’apai Tonga to run 2 humpback whale trips.
The Ha’apai island group can be found about midway between Tongatapu and Vava’u.
I base the trips from Ha’a’api because there are several more sheltered and shallow areas that are visited frequently by the whales here. There’s also very few boats.
It’s common around Ha’apai to find mother and calf pairs resting on the sandy seabed. This is a great opportunity to swim with the whales when they’re more relaxed, and it’s a very different experience from the fast-paced action in the further north islands.
It’s not uncommon to be sat having your morning coffee whilst watching the whales off the reef infront of the resort.
As always, I keep the groups small, with a maximum of 7 guests at a time, allowing more quality time with the whales.
During the trip, we’ll keep a record of the whale sightings/Fluke ID and behaviour.
*Please note: ONLY snorkelling/swimming experience is required for the whale swims.
This is truly an adventure of a lifetime and I look forward to sharing it with you!
