Join Tim Rock’s privately chartered 50-foot catamaran yacht to cruise the stunning Ha’apai Islands in Tonga in search of humpback whales, marine mammals, manta rays and stunning coral gardens. Tim will offer three charters with experts Dave & Tris Sheen in September 2015, which is the height of humpback whale season in Tonga. The yacht offers the finest crew of whale experts to be found in beautiful Tonga. The Sheens promote “sustainable interaction” as part of their business, believing the more that is learned about humpback whales, the better the chances of protecting them.

By day we will swim with humpback whales. See video here:

Space is limited to just four guests per one-week trip. Tongan law says that only four people and a guide can be in the water with a whale or whales at any time. By having just four guests, everyone is assured of getting in the water every drop, every day, for great interaction and observation.
This is a special opportunity to have your own private charter and do what few humans in the world ever dream to do… swim one-on-one with the largest mammals on the planet.

All inclusive cost is AUD$3850 (as of Oct 2014 roughly USD$3375).

Our 2015 schedule:
September 4 thru 10 – Ha’apai – Full
September 12 thru 18 – Ha’apai – 2 spaces

September 21 thru 27 – Ha’apai – 2 spaces
