For an unforgettable Pacific island experience, it would be hard to beat staying in a beachfront fale on a tiny Tongan island and swimming in the warm, clear waters with beautiful humpback whales and their calves.
Australian eco operator, Majestic Whale Encounters, will use brand new beachfront fales on the tiny island of Uoleva on two of its whale swim holidays in Tonga in 2017, with a saving of $800 per couple available for bookings made by 31 January 2017. If booked by 31 January 2017, each of the eight-day packages on 11 & 18 September 11 2017, is available from $3600 per person, twin-share – a saving of $400 per person.
Flights to Tonga from Australia (five hours direct) with Virgin Australia or via New Zealand are extra.
The two eight-day tours will start in Tonga on 11 & 18 September 2017, during the peak whale season, when graceful humpbacks gather in the warm, tropical waters to mate, give birth and tend to their calves. The unique tours offered by Majestic Whale Encounters allow Australians to swim with the mammals in turquoise waters off Tongan islands a short flight north of the capital, Nuku’alofa.
Each of the eight-day packages includes full-board accommodation in new, eco-style, beachfront fales on the tiny island paradise of Uoleva near Ha’apai.
Packages include accommodation, local inter-island flights, all main meals, transfers and five guided days of snorkelling with the whales from a boat. Guests will also have the opportunity to snorkel on coral reefs, laze in hammocks on white sandy beaches and get a taste of Tongan culture. Bush walking, kayaking, fishing and scuba diving are also available during leisure days.
Majestic staff also remain with guests throughout the eight-day experience, assisting with the whale swims and sharing their knowledge of and love for the humpbacks. As an environmentally conscious company passionate about whale preservation, Majestic Whale Encounters is an active member of The World Cetacean Alliance, promoting responsible whale watching worldwide.
