The Humpbacks

Humpback whales grow to around 15m in length and are renowned as the whales with the longest pectoral fins. They have a complexed song and communication system that travels extremely long distances and that will vibrate every bone in your body when you swim near them. The whales migrate to Tonga every year between July and October to give birth and play in the warm tropical water.
