What to expect from the trip?
1
We'll be hugging (almost) humpback whales
Tonga is special because it's here that migration routes of humpback whales from Antarctica are, it's here that humpback's females give birth and breed their cubs and particularly here there's an opportunity to swim with those giants in the open oceanic waters within arm's reach (Tonga is rightfully considered to be the best place in the world for that!).
2
We're going to thrill with sharks
After implementation of main program there is an optional part – diving with sharks in Fiji. Practically every single dive brings encounter with 7 different types of sharks: blacktip and whitetip reef sharks, grey and silver reef sharks, nurse and lemon sharks, and, clearly «stars of the show», bull sharks. Shark watching proceeds without a cage, each immersion is strictly planned and organized.
