Swim with Humpback Whales

in Tonga 東加之旅 2023


2023 summer: Swim with whales and see them in real life and feel their vibes as if you are on the front row seats of their choir ensemble in one of the Tonga islands that the humpback whales spend their summer.

If we are lucky enough, we may even be able to swim and dive in on a Heat Run, an adrenaline driven real-life battle among male whales fighting to win the love of One female whale. 🥰

Our local captain and whale guide will teach us all the "dos' and 'don'ts" while we are on the boat and when we are in the water. They help to make sure it's safe for us (and the whales) when we get into the water. They will help navigate and explore the Tonga sea to spot the whale groups as they freely swim and enjoy the warm water of the Tonga sea.

The Tongan humpback whale migration begins when winter descends on the Antarctic. And welcome to be part of the one of the world's largest and longest animal migrations!

SoulFree’s whale swim trip is 8-day/7-night and the package price will include the following:

  1. 5 boat trips (with Tonga Tourism Board certified captain and whale guide) each boat trip departs at 9 am and ends at 4pm,
  2. 7 nights of hotel accommodation (2 pax per room);
  3. 3 meals for 7 days (day 1-day 7) because day 8 will be leaving the island;
  4. Pick up transportation to/from Tonga Vava'u airport to hotel;
  5. A minivan for the group to commute on the island.

The package will exclude all international and domestic flights getting into Vava’u, Tonga and any other incurred expenses, such as travel insurance, personal expenses etc.

We can only accept 7 people on one boat so we can maximize our time with whales.

2023 年夏季:與鯨魚一起游泳,在現實生活中看到它們,感受它們的共鳴,就好像您在座頭鯨度過夏天的東加群島之一的合唱團前排座位上一樣。

如果我們足夠幸運,我們甚至可以游泳和潛入 Heat Run,這是一場腎上腺素激增的現實生活中公鯨之間的戰鬥,為贏得一頭母鯨的愛而戰。 🥰
