As promised, here's a look at our weeks with the humpbacks in Tonga for 2009. We had some great interactions with mother & calf, a family and one very active calf on our last day.

Model Yoko Higashide had her first whale experience and loved the baby whale swims. The folks at Vavau Villa were more than generous. The Sailing Safaris people did their best to get us in the water with the whales. We managed to live through a quake and tsunami warning. The market had great fresh produce. The cultural show in Tonga Tapu featured superb local food and entertainment. In all, it was a great place to become one with the sea.
