Swim with the Whales

Southern humpback whales take shelter in the tropical reef-protected waters of Tonga during July - October to give birth to their young.

Diving

The Tongan archipelago consists of 176 islands, roughly the same number of marine species divers encounter in their first hour exploring the Kingdom’s coral reefs, caves and crystal clear waters.

Snorkelling

A popular activity in the Kingdom on Tonga is snorkelling, it’s easy to do for all age groups. No complicated gear on your back, just a snorkel, some flippers and away you go.

Kayaking

Kayaking is an essential Tongan experience, especially when you’re just inches above transparent waters, and your self-paddled craft is a ticket to more remote islands and untouched beaches.
