Resort Information: Activities

Whale Watching & Swimming

From July to November Humpback whales visit our pristine waters. Vava'u is one of only a handful of places in the world where you can actually swim with these amazing animals. Blue Lagoon is situated in the heart of the whale activity in Vava'u.

Whales can be seen breaching and swimming around Blue Lagoon from all angles of the resort and on an occasion actually come into our lagoon. Whale swimming is available for guests and is normally only a 5-10 minute boat ride to see them close up and personal.

Heavy displacement, makes her seaworthy for sailing to some of the more remote islands. We can accommodate up to 4 adult guests or 5-6 guests for a family with small children (ask about rates for families). We have a 10 foot (3 meter) inflatable dinghy with a 25-horsepower motor which we use to go ashore to explore some of the 40 beautiful islands of Vava'u and to approach the whales. We encourage guests to participate in sailing, on a traditionally rigged boat there are plenty of lines to handle and it is fun to work as a team. There is also plenty of room on deck to spread out if you just want to relax and enjoy the ride. We visit a different anchorage each day and can go ashore to explore or swim off the boat, or take a dinghy ride to a special reef for snorkeling.
