For the last six years, I have been leading groups to Tonga to snorkel with Humpbacks. I authored the story on Tonga in the destination guide and will be hosting three photography dedicated adventures for Whale Discoveries in 2012 and two in 2013. This company is based in Ha'apai, Tonga. Next month they are purchasing a 65 foot sailing catamaran to add to their operation. The boat will take a maximum of 8 people on 8-10 day adventures to locations in Tonga that are remote and beyond the range of most operators. Known to be productive in terms of humpback whale interactions these waters are known for False Killer whales, Pilot whales, and lots of dolphin.
I will be doing a slide show and whale presentation in San Diego on Feb 1st 2012 for the Bottom bunch dive club, and in Denver on Feb 7th, at the Denver Aquarium for the Colorado Underwater Photography Society.
