Book by February 28, 2015
Two nights’ accommodation in Tonga and two local day tours will be included for free on three new, all-inclusive’ whale swim holiday packages this July and August offered by Majestic Whale Encounters, with savings of up to $940 per couple available.
An Australian-based eco operator, Majestic Whale Encounters runs a range of whale-swim holidays in Tonga for a maximum of eight people per group staying in casual beachside fales on the idyllic coral island of Foa in Tonga’s Ha’apai group of islands, 40 minutes north by air from the capital, Nuku’alofa.
During the personalised eco tours, snorkellers swim with the majestic mammals, which measure up to 19m long, while maintaining safe, non-invasive guidelines set by the Responsible Whale Watching code in Tonga.
The new nine-night holiday package includes seven nights’ stay at a beachside bungalow on Ha’apai island, as well as the two free nights at the start of the trip at one of two selected lodges on Tongatapu (Tonga’s main island), all meals (expect one dinner on Tongatapu), five days on the water with the whales, accompanied by an experienced guide, whale swim equipment, all transfers, and return airfares from Tongatapu to Ha’apai.
Travellers can also choose two of four Tongatapu day tours on offer for free, including the Fua’amotu Swimming Safari, where they can enjoy one of the island’s best swimming spots, a tour which includes visits to the Royal Palace, Royal Tombs, and the picturesque Otuhaka Beach, a tour of Oholei Beach and Hina Cave, including a cultural performance and a Traditional Tongan Umu-underground oven style lunch, and the popular tour to Fafa Island, one of Tongatapu’s offshore resorts.
The special is priced from $3900 per person, twin-share, including the saving of $470 per person, or $940 per couple. Flights to Tonga from Australia (five hours direct) with Virgin Australia or from New Zealand with Air New Zealand and Virgin are extra.
The special will be on offer until February 28, 2015, valid for nine-night holidays starting on July 28, August 4 and August 20, 2015.
“Swimming with whales is an exhilarating and memorable experience,” said Majestic Whale Encounter Managing Director, Carmen Ellis. “The humpbacks are so gentle and radiate warmth and of course Tonga with its beautiful islands, warm, translucent waters and friendly locals provides the perfect setting to meet these spiritual creatures,” Carmen said.
