A small country in Oceania three hours by plane from New Zealand, Tonga is one of the few places in the world where you can swim in the company of whales, mainly humpback whales. The 176 islands of the South Pacific archipelago that are part of what was a British protectorate until 1970, are now a sanctuary for cetaceans species coming from the Antarctic to mate and care for their young.

The most favorable period of the year is between May and September. Tourists are taken by boats to the points where the whales usually stay. With snorkels, masks and fins, the tourists can dive and watch the animals. One of the most popular sites is the island of Vava'u.
