Humpback whales are now heading north to warmer waters to breed and for whale lovers keen to swim with the majestic mammals in a tropical lagoon, Australian eco operator, Majestic Whale Encounters, is offering a discount of $800 per couple on its seven-night whale swim holiday this August.
The $400 per person discount is for twin-share bookings made by June 27, 2016, on Majestic Whale Encounters’ all-inclusive tour starting in Tonga on August 23, 2016.
The whale swim package offers an intimate encounter with the graceful humpbacks and their playful calves, with spending five days swimming with whales off Ha’apai, an island north of Nuku’alofa. Guests will also have the opportunity to snorkel in coral reefs, relax on white sandy beaches and get a taste of Tongan culture. Bush walking, kayaking, fishing, scuba diving and cycling are also available during leisure days.
The seven-night tour in August costs A$3691 per person, twin-share, including the discount if booked by June 27, 2016. Included in the package is resort accommodation on Ha’apai, local flights, all meals, transfers and five guided days on the water with the whales.
Flights to Tonga from Australia (five hours direct) with Virgin Australia or from New Zealand with Air New Zealand and Virgin are extra.
