Our main goal during this time will be to snorkel with the whales, however, this area of Tonga offers many other attractions, both above and below the water. In addition to whales, we have a diversity of other exciting snorkeling opportunities. Tongan reefs offer a wide variety of robust hard corals, and an extensive assortment of reef fish. Visibility often exceeds 100 feet underwater. And there's more. Due to the dramatic geology of the islands, sheer limestone cliffs feature a number of spectacular open sea-level caverns. Dancing shafts of sunlight filter in, illuminating schools of small fish and interior topography, often in water of breathtaking clarity.
In addition to whale watching, we have also planned reef oriented snorkeling excursions. These should offer pleasant shallow water snorkeling opportunities. In all cases, for your safety and enjoyment, we encourage you to acknowledge and stay within your own personal limitations. Our tour staff will gladly provide any needed snorkeling instruction, from floating over reef environments and deeper water to freediving. The islands themselves, mostly small and uninhabited, are among the most beautiful in the South Pacific. Long stretches of white sand beaches overhung with palm trees and other lush foliage are punctuated with dark rocky points and luminous shallow reefs. Postcards come alive in Vava'u.
