After spending a week at Vava'u I couldn't recommend Whales in the Wild enough. If you are after a truly unique experience with an incredible tour company then Whales in the Wild is for you.
Phil the owner of the tour company is a very layback and knowledgeable man. During my time with Whales in the Wild I saw Phil go above and beyond his role on countless occasions to both accommodate and benefit the guests. Phil and his team of local guides are so dedicated to making sure that their guests have a great time that many guests extend their time in Vava'u as a result.
I had three days out swimming with the Whales. Your day starts at 7am and usually finishes around 4pm. You have both a local guide and a skipper on board for the day. I found all of Phil's staff to be extremely experienced and considerate of their guests. The Tongan guides have so much knowledge and passionate regarding the whales and the islands, which they are only too happy to share with their guests. The guides also take you to many great places around the islands to snorkel in pristine waters, swim in caves and explore deserted islands.
The actual experience of swimming with the whales is indescribable. It is both a thrill and a privilege to swim and interact with such majestic creatures.
I really enjoyed my time in Tonga and with Whales in the Wild. Tonga seems to be a well-kept secret, and Whales in the wild a fantastic guide to show you all the beauty it has to offer.
