By Brook Peterson

Traveling to Tonga as a dive destination was never at the top of my list.  But then a friend invited me to cruise aboard the Nai’a, Tonga’s seasonal liveaboard, to photograph humpback whales.  All excursions were to be done on snorkel as scuba diving in open water is not safe.  I didn’t hesitate for a moment, knowing that the opportunity to get in the water with humpbacks is very rare.
