Australian eco operator, Majestic Whale Encounters, is offering savings of $700 per couple on its new 2018 Deluxe Island Tours, which include stays in two resorts in Tonga, all main meals, five days of swimming with humpback whales and complimentary massages.
The 12-day tours depart on August 10 and September 18, 2018, with the highlight a four-night stay at the luxurious Fafa Island Resort– one of the most beautiful and secluded properties in Tonga. Located 7km from Tonga’s main island of Tongatapu, and guarded by a coral reef, the high-end eco resort offers bungalows that come with their own private stretch of beach. Guests can enjoy leisure time, an island-hopping tour, a relaxing massage, locally-sourced gourmet dishes, and the opportunity to snorkel off the coast of the island in the clear blue waters.
The itinerary also includes seven nights at Sandy Beach Resort on the island of Ha’apai in the far north of Tonga’s chain of islands. Guests stay in beachfront bungalows and enjoy activities such as kayaking, bushwalking and snorkelling on the reef just in front of the bungalows.
Over the 12 days, five days will be spent swimming with the graceful humpback whales, with a catamaran used as a base each day. Majestic staff remain with guests throughout the tour, assisting with the whale swims and sharing their knowledge of and love for the humpbacks.
The all-inclusive, 12-day Deluxe Island Tour package accommodation, local inter-island flights, all main meals, transfers and five whale swim days and is priced from $5250 per person, twin-share, including the $350 per person saving if booked by 31 August, 2017. Flights to Tonga from Australia (five hours direct) with Virgin Australia or via New Zealand are extra.
