Responsible tourism: Humpback whale adventure in tropical Tonga


Our clients are informed on the need to adhere strictly to our waste disposal policies during their time in Tonga. This is to insure that they do nothing to disturb or change the balance in the eco-system.

We have our own environmentally friendly water bottles with we refill each day with UV sterilised rainwater for drinking each day for our guests .

We supply re-usable plastic lunch boxes to our caterers for lunches each day.

Local communities and schools are constantly reminded and educated on the need to protect and preserve their culture and the environment as to continually attract tourism.

We collect humpback whale I.D. photos on our vessel each season to support the ongoing research and conservation of the South Pacific Humpback whales.

We do not print information brochures, all our information is on our website where information can be downloaded if and when required.

All paper in our offices is recycled and we refrain from accepting plastic bags or wrapping whenever possible.


As a strict policy, we believe in training and retraining of staff and volunteers alike to ensure that they are acquainted with contemporary issues involved in providing safe, informative, educative, life changing and sustainable tourism.

We only work with local suppliers who strictly adhere to the 'Whale-watching Guidelines of Tonga - that cause little or no negative impact on the humpback whales in the area.

We encourage our guests to interact with our boat crew, the local families during the feast and dance night, staff at resorts and on any village visits or events where this is possible.

We recommend that our guests buy handicrafts from local people.

Our guests are asked to bring books and stationery for the schools as well as eye glasses for the hospital, if they choose.

A portion of the profits generated by WhaleSwim Adventures are channeled into various organisations:
The Vava'u Public Library High School Scholarship Fund
The Diagnostic Laboratory Project - Prince Wellington Ngu Hospital in Vava'u
The Women’s and Children’s Crisis Centre in Nuku'alofa.

The guests are informed about these vital organisations and rather than 'tipping' (which is not understood in the culture) we ask they may like to donate to one of them.
