Melinda Sea Adventures offers the only live-aboard whale watching tours in Vava'u. Our sailing yachts are comfortable and stable and give you the opportunity to be totally immersed with the whales. From our reviews: We saw single whales, mother and calf pairs, groups of 7-10. Meals were delicious with an emphasis on heathy fresh vegetables, fruits and fish. Accommodation onboard the sailing yacht is the perfect way to see the Tonga whales in the tranquil and unspoiled environment of the Tonga islands.
Considered to be the best cruising grounds in the South Pacific the Tonga Islands of Vava'u makeup a breath-taking tropical wilderness. 40 islands surrounded by a fringing reef for protection from the ocean swell and many safe anchorages and secluded coves offer one of the world's finest sailing charter holidays.

We anchor near a different island each night and you can explore the island, snorkel or just relax. Some of the smaller, uninhabited islands, are surrounded by white sand beaches, while others have dramatic limestone cliffs with sea level caves. Besides snorkeling, we can hike through lush tropical forests to vistas overlooking sheer cliffs where the surf crashes in the turqouise water, or we can explore a stretch of beach, poking into tidepools full of marine life.
