If pelagic marine life encounters are always on your mind when building out your dive trip itinerary, then the Kingdom of Tonga is a must for experiencing the magic of swimming with humpback whales (and the only location where where it is actually legal). These ocean giants are known for their majestic breaching behavior and the males for singing unique and complex songs lasting for hours. Having the opportunity to swim with these marine mammals in warm, crystal clear water, is an experience that you will never forget.
