Expedition itineraries usually commence and conclude in the Ha’Apai island group and include new anchorages each night. During the Whale season, the daily focus is on Humpback Whale interactions gaining an understand of their intricate lives. Ultimately as the sun drops we head for an island or reef anchorage fishing all the way. Anchor set- time to play. If possible we investigate a suitable Scuba dive site for those up for it, while others explore the island, go free diving, paddling or sit back to enjoy a book, or sort the epic videos and pictures just shot.
