Whale Swimming and Sports Fishing
Swim with Whales in Tonga with Blue Sky Charters
During the months of July, August, September and October the waters around Vava'u are home to humpback whales as they come to the warm waters to give birth and mate until returning south to their feeding grounds. Therefore there are plenty of opportunities to swim with the whales in Vava'u with these majestic creatures! Swimming with whales in Vava'u is an experience sure to stay with you long after your holiday ends!
Aboard Blue Sky we are offering exclusive whale swimming along with stopping off for a snorkel along the reefs and at 2 of Vava’u amazing caves. The rules and regulations for whale swimming permit a maximum of 4 people plus 1 guide in the water at any one time.
Therefore on our vessel Blue Sky we offer an exclusive charter where we only take 4 guests allowing you maximum time in the water with the whales……
You swim EVERYTIME!!!

There is lots of covered seating out of the weather; sun / rain, and we have an electric toilet for you convenience. There is also twin boarding ladders at the rear of the boat for easy access in and out of the water. Blue Sky is a big stable and very sea worthy vessel.
Whilst in and out of the water you will be assisted by our very experienced fully certified guide, Po’uli.
