We travel the globe swimming with whales. However, the Kingdom of Tonga is genuinely unique. You can only get up and personal with 15-meter humpback whales, and they won’t leave. They approach you in a circle, staring at you, wave their fins, hit tails, and poke their noses at you. They also sing! Even from the shore, you can hear the sounds of the whales.

Tonga: why? Like all other animals, humpback whales search for the safest location to have young when migrating to the Antarctic. As it happens, the Kingdom of Tonga is where they choose to stop for fuel. Whales conceal their young from killer whales and other predators in calm shallow seas close to the islands. A newborn whale, measuring around 4.5 meters in length, will spend the first two months of his life here. He will leave on an ocean voyage after becoming more muscular and gaining weight.

Despite their size, whales can swim quite well and are non-aggressive. They are well aware that they may injure such a little creature as a person. Therefore, they act as cautiously as possible. They can swim two feet away or wave their enormous fins before you. amazing experience
