YOUR ADVENTURE

Our Humpback Tonga Trip is an absolute bucket list 7- Day, all-inclusive adventure during the most inquisitive and playful time of year. Soak up a week of bliss on the remote island of Eua, in our own private resort. The resort has a chef, private beach and reef to explore, with sunsets best described as out-of-this-world.

The whale encounters you’ll experience are some of the best in the world! This is because Eua is the closest island in Tonga to the Tonga trench; a deep oceanic trench lapping with warm, safe, tropical waters where Humpback whales breed and birth their calves.

  • The most intimate and close encounters with large pods of playful whales
  • Line diving, reef access and underwater cave exploration
