Stunning Tonga photo book.
Whales, scencis, overlooks, reefs, caves, aerials, culture, dance and much, much more.
In Tonga they are called "The Happy Isles". The islands of this tiny kingdom stretch across the central South Pacific like gems large and small.
Every year people flock to Tonga. They visit the capitol of Tongatapu and northern Vava'u to enjoy the tropical winds for sailing and do some whale watching. The southern Arctic humpbacks come into the protected bays here to have their young and mate, play and grow.
This is the one of the few places on Earth that you can snorkel with whales and see them in their environment. Its an amazing sight to watch a mother feeding a calf or to see a full-grown male completely leave the sea on a massive breach.
This new for 2010 book, with its 303 images and 200 pages, is a visual trip to Tongatapu and Vava'u to see the land, the sea, the coral reefs and marine creatures, the wonderful people and Tongan culture, aerials and overlooks and, most of all, the whales.
