Kingdom of Tonga is a small archipelago hidden in the Pacific ocean, one of the few tropical corners on the planet that has preserved its identity since the time of the great seafarers. Tonga is world-renowned for it's humpback whales that travel there all the way from Antarctica to give birth and bring up their calves. Tonga is believed to be one of the best places in the world for snorkeling with whales. The whales there are friendly and curious, so snorkelers have plenty of great opportunities to see them up close. The сalves are playful and often come close to play with snorkelers. A visit to Tonga is an unforgettable experience.
