2018 Season July–October

Join Canon Master Darren Jew and his team for an unforgettable adventure filled with intimate in-water encounters with magnificent humpback whales in the Kingdom of Tonga’s famous Vava’u Group of Islands. Since 2001 Darren has been travelling the Vava’u, photographing these magnificent creatures as they go about their lives in the warm waters of this South Pacific paradise–and at the same time sharing his experience with small groups of ocean lovers and photographers.
