Whale Watch & Swim

Aboard Luminescence



Our purpose-built 9 meter aluminium boat is comfortable, fast and has those touches that make whale swimming an easy and enjoyable experience. Rain protection, an observation deck, elongated swim steps, hydrophone, and a gear table are just a few of the aspects that make Luminescence the perfect vessel for your day out on the water. Fun and experienced local crew and a love for the whales will ensure that your experience is unforgettable!

We follow all industry guidelines and Tongan laws for whale swimming in the Kingdom. Ask us for more details if you're interested!
