13 years in Tonga photographing the amazing Humpbacks and this was one of the best seasons yet. In August the water surprisingly cooler and there were a lot more whales closer inside the islands. On at least 3 occasions the whales were right insight the Harbour which happens rarely. Maybe once every 4-5 years. For anyone that has never visited the south Pacific, Tonga is one of those untouched places and still pristine in many respects, clear water, beautiful reefs, stunning caves and the added bonus of a multitude of friendly whales. This year we started the Tongan Fluke Collective, which encourages visiting photographers to donate Fluke shots to help ID the different individual whales that come to Tonga each year. You can find out more about the program here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/tonganflukecollective – Anyway we will be running a number of Photographic tours in the next year or so to various destinations, so stay tuned.
