Whales and Wellness Tours

Majestic’s Whales and Wellness tours offer an immersive escape to a secluded eco-retreat on the scenic island of U’oleva in Tonga. Set along the eastern barrier reef of Ha’apai, guests embark on a remarkable journey, spending five days swimming alongside majestic humpback whales while relishing moments of relaxation and wellness onshore. When not exploring the underwater world, guests can engage in yoga sessions and moments of quiet reflection to disconnect from the hectic pace of daily life, fostering a profound connection with themselves and the surrounding nature. For those seeking a bit more activity, kayaking, paddle boarding, and snorkelling are also available. Female-only Whales and Wellness tours are an option as well. Tours run during September and October.
