Humpback Whales Tonga Migration Route –Antartica to Tonga Humpback Whales travel up from Antartica to Tonga every year between May and November. They come up from south to our warm and calm waters to mate, give birth and socialize. Female humpback whales arrive heavily pregnant. After a month or two of their arrival, they give birth to a baby calf who they will need to nurse and build up their blubber to survive the long journey back to Antarctica in November. Humpback Whales arrive at the two most southern islands of 'Eua and Tongatapu first before any other islands in the Tonga group. Many whales stay in these two southern islands while others travel further north. Humpback Whales Tonga numbers increasing in Tongatapu and ‘Eua Islands. Increasingly over the years, Deep Blue Diving observe humpback whale numbers in these two islands show an increasing trend since it started operating Whale Watch and Swim tours in 2006. Ten years of experience as an operator but 30 years of local expert knowledge of our Tonga waters. Our Boats MV Kiunia is a nice comfortable 15 meter steel hull ex-fishing boat. It runs on a twin diesel engines at a relaxed pace of 8 knots. We believe the slow pace is our advantage, that is the attraction to the whales, where they do not feel threatened, chased and disturbed, they feel safe. The boat has capacity for 25 passengers, although about half are swimmers and the rest are whale watching only. We may have two to four groups of swimmers, but our experience ensure that everyone comes away satisfied that they had the best experience of their life!
