Together, Brenda, Meki and Meli make a dream team for a Tongan whale adventure! With their extensive experience working and living in Vava'u, Brenda and her longtime local crew can provide you knowledgeable insight into the whales' behavior and the environment.

Words cannot even begin to express the incredible experience my husband and I had going with Brenda and Endangered Encounters to snorkel with the humpback whales in Tonga. It is truly an AMAZING experience! We wanted to do something extra special to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary and that was a perfect choice. Thank you to Brenda and your crew for giving us such a wonderful and memorable experience!


I went out with a group of 4 friends to dive with whales. Endangered encounters provided a great day out on the water. They have a solid boat and good local knowledge of both the area and of the whales themselves. Brenda made sure we were all happy and the boys made sure we were in and out of the water safely. They were very professional when dealing with the whales at close quarters. Definitely not a cowboy operation. Would recommend. Awesome Experience
