Whale Watching Delights In The Kingdom Of Tonga...

Recent visitors to The Kingdom Of Tonga's Vava'u Island Group have been treated to some close encounters with thirty six tonne Humpback Whales and their calves during the mammals' annual five month sojourn in the South Pacific.
New Zealand Herald photographer Richard Robinson was, as you can see here, very up close and personal underwater.
The Humpbacks spend the months of July to November in the warm waters of Tonga before migrating south to spend the summer feeding in Antarctica.
Vava'u has some of the world's most beautiful cruising grounds as visiting yachties will attest to.
I spent many wonderful months there on my yacht Sofia some years ago.
But that's another story...
