Swimming with Humpback Whales in Vava’u in the northern islands of Tonga is the place to be. Between August to October you will likely see a calf like this one. The calf can be so curious, coming up to eye ball you and then dive back down to see mum, surfacing 4-6 times before you see the mother surface to breathe. The calf consumes around 200+ litres of milk per day, this ensures the calf puts on weight quickly for its long migration back to Antarctica. For the next 12 months the calf will stay by its mother side, becoming a juvenile whale, it will be heading off to make its own life. - photo by 2014©Tom Balks/TomBalks.com, all right reserved.
