With longer, more sustained encounters with whales and an almost 100% success rate getting guests in the water with singing Humpbacks, we are delighted to have the chance to introduce you safely and sustainably, to Tonga's largest and most charismatic inhabitants.
From the very first phone call, you have facilitated a real holiday. The booking was easy, the info was great and the end came way too soon. Dave is gold! I believe he even had the whales briefed each day to make sure they knew our wishes . Day one, before lunch, all my expectations had been met and from there it just kept on being more amazing. I know he will have let you know all we did each day but it was more! The knowledge he has adds immeasurably to this trip, as does his kindness, enthusiasm, and happy nature.
I’m still processing “swimming in the same space as whales” which hasn’t quite felt real! I feel so lucky and also humbled; so much more aware of the interconnectedness of this world we share, and of the simple things which have such an enormous impact.
Thank you for allowing a suburban granny all this!!!
Kindest regards, Marilyn
