The Kingdom of Tonga is one of the most spectacular places on earth to get to see and dive with humpback whales.  Erez Beatus, Alegra Ally and World Champion Freediver Alexey Molchanov are hosting several expeditions to Tonga to freedive with these amazing giants of the sea.

The expeditions are all freediving oriented and include daily yoga practice, freediving in amazing locations such as the arch and caverns and of course – lots of time to swim with whales.
