Blue Water Explorer


Welcome to the Kingdom of Tonga and the best place in the world to swim with Humpback whales!

Blue Water Explorer Ltd is a Tongan based company that specialise in guided swims with Humpback whales from July through to October each year. We are very conveniently located in Nukualofa, Tonga tapu (the capital of the Kingdom of Tonga). This region has a vast amount of humpback whales visiting annually and a small amount of whale swim operators so you have the best opportunity possible to see AND swim with whales on a daily basis. We are the regions most experienced and most professional operator.

We own and operate three new charter vessels and specialise in catering for small groups (4-8 guests only). We have a conservative and eco-friendly approach to whale swims and even have our own ultra conservative policies on approaching whales. Our on board marine biologist will help ensure you are well educated about your whale experience and our expert in water guides will help ensure a safe and memorable day in the water.

I welcome you to join us on a guided swim with the humpback whales in 2015 and I am sure you will have the time of your life.

Robert Torelli

Robert Torelli an 8 times Australian Open Spearfishing Champion has been running spearfishing charters throughout Australia and the South Pacific for the past 20 years. He has run nine expeditions to the Kingdom of Tonga and most of these were to the north at Vavau. Robert has always had an “eye out for the perfect charter destination” to invest in and when he came across Tongatapu in the south of Tonga he figured this was “the spot”.

NOTE: Sunday is a customary day of rest/religion and no charters work on Sunday so this day is always left vacant.
