A Trip of a Lifetime

JULY 22 - 30, 2019


Come experience the majestic Humpback Whales of Vava’u, Tonga.  You’ll experience up close encounters with humpback whales and their calves in the beautiful waters off  the Island of Tonga.  Humpback mother whales and their calves spend July -  October in these warm tropical waters.  You can see the beautiful creatures from land, splashing and playing in the water, but for a life changing experience, you are welcomed into their underwater world, to experience up-close  encounters while you listen to their playful chatter.

Is this trip right for you? Is it calling to you?

Call and talk with Mary at (847) 226-6541. She can share her personal stories of meeting the whales and discuss all of your questions.
