As someone who is obsessed with marine life, freediving, and fishing, there is no better experience than joining freediving holidays for whale swimming in Tonga. The crew and staff made all my dreams come true. It is truly paradise out there and experiencing the intimacy of mother humpbacks and theirs calves and the testosterone of the male heat runs was absolutely mind blowing.


From Our Guests

when you look into a whales eye as it swims close by you instantly feel the trip has been worthwhile, it gives you a feeling of how amazing these creatures are, this is even without other interactions with them, diving in local caves, swim throughs and experiencing 40m visibility, these other things merely then become a bonus


Going on a freediving trip to Tonga with Apnea Australia is by far the best holiday I’ve had. It had a great mix of fun and training/learining for all levels of freediving experience. Erez and Ally were flexible with day to day activies and we had heaps of options…..but most of all we got up close and personal with the humpback whales – a once in a lifetime experience. I highly recommend this trip to any ocean enthusiasts!
