      About this trip

      This tour offers eight swim days over eleven nights.  Sundays in Tonga are rest days—all businesses, including airports—are closed, and whale swims are not allowed. 

      Each boat will take six clients. Tonga law allows four people in the water at a time with a certified whale swim guide. 

      Four guests will swim; two will stay out and guests will rotate equally throughout the day. Having fewer people on the boat offers guests almost 33% more swim time than other boats that take 8-12 people.
