A humpback whale and calf in Tonga. Humpbacks migrate to Tonga's warm waters each year from Antarctica to mate and give birth. The calm, clear waters offer unparalleled opportunities to snorkel with these gentle giants. Our Tonga trip was named "Trip of the Year" by Outside Magazine. Join us next July!

<i>Character</i>. This image was captured off the coast of the island Chain of Vava'u, Kingdom of Tonga. Every year humpback whales migrate thousands of kilometers from the cold oceans in the south to the warm breeding waters in the tropical islands on the South Pacific. This particular male calf was such a character and after seeing him most days over a week I finally captured an image that showed his nature and unique 'personality' as such.
Migaloo, the only known all white humpback whale, was photographed by jenny dean (first, third photos) in the great barrier reef. though often described as albino, migaloo has brown eyes and is more likely leucistic or hypopigmented. last year, a white orca named iceberg was photographed (second photo) for the first time by e. lazareva in the north pacific, but is again not technically believed to be albino.
