This image was awarded at the 10th Annual International Color Awards 2017 – receiving an Honourable Mention. One of the amazing encounters we had with the Humpback whales last season.
Tonga is one of only a few places in the world you can swim with Humpback whales. And the regulations state clearly that only 4 people and a licensed guide can be in the water with the whales at any one time. We don’t scuba dive with the whales, only snorkel and practice a soft approach to interactions with these amazing mammals.
