Tonga — the Humpback Whales
Years ago, there was a boat serving divers in Fiji called the Matagi Princess. After a few seasons it moved to the Solomon Islands and worked a few seasons there. In the early 90s I was approached by the owners; they had moved the boat to Tonga to have a clear field, and were hoping to develop the diving with humpback whales. I had already done Tonga’s humpbacks shore-based the previous year, operating out of a small beach resort in Nuku ‘alofa. I loved the idea of using a live-aboard to roam more freely, so we marketed groups to go there.
