Another year with the lovely Bucketlist Family

One of my favourite times of year in Tonga is when Garrett and his family turn up for their annual pilgrimage to swim with the whales. I love the enthusiasm and connection they have with the whales. their latest v-blog really captures the essence of their last trip here with  us in Tonga. Can’t wait to see you guys again next season. I love this video!!

Kicking off the season

As the season kicks off we are seeing some interesting behaviour from some young juvenile whales, this whale we had to nickname the crazy whale on account of it always making a B-line for us in the water. things can be unpredictable sometimes and we are dealing with wild animals with big bodies and big personalities. Lets hope the excitement continues this week.
