1A DOM TONGA FINALFocus on Whales  ... a note from Dom

The sheer immensity of a whale is guaranteed to raise your heartbeat when you're in the water "face-to-face".
  Their intriguing behavior, the eerie sound of their singing, the outrageous photo ops & the fact that most of the trips are for divers & non-divers alike  ...  translate to memorable moments.  I'm always happy to chat about the various options, so don't hesitate to give me a shout  .... Cheers, Dom
