The Blue Lagoon Resort is the perfect location to stay at if your number one priority is to swim with the humpback whales during their stay in Tonga. It is the closest resort to the whales and being a very small and intimate resort, they make getting you up close to the whales their top priority. It is a little... More

When you come to Tonga, you probably come for the whales. We picked Blue Lagoon because they guarantee only 4 people per boat, which means you are guaranteed to get in the water every time you spot a whale. We went out 3 times and we saw whales every single day, such an experience. The resort has a few fales,... More

We spent a week here in late August, early September with friends on their second trip to Blue Lagoon. There is really only one reason to come and that is the whale swims. The resort is very low key with 4 fales: 2 for couples, one for a family and one that we couldn't quite work out! The fales themselves... More

Feleti and his daughter cook the BEST food ever and you'll never be hungry! You are treated like family there. Blue lagoon is the type of place I will revisit every year as the... More

The resort was exactly as I expected. Although the cabins were rustic this was just what we were after for our second honeymoon. The 3 days whale swimming were fantastic and we had great experiences every day. The family ran the resort very well, the food was delicious and plentiful. The days we didn't swim with the whales were spent... More

My wife and I visited from the USA (long trip and WELL worth it). We came expressly to swim with the humpback whales and were not disappointed. First of all, you are as close to being on your own deserted desert island as you will ever get! A 45 minute boat trip from town lands you on the island, that... More

What a stunning place and such a unique and special experience. We were one of the first groups of the season, but there were plenty of whales to see. As soon as you opened your bedroom door you could see whales breaching! Plan multiple days whale swimming as it's not guaranteed and we were fully aware this was the case,... More

Visiting The Blue Lagoon resort in Tonga is an amazing experience. To see these fantastic animals in full freedom, letting us come close and watch their calves is unbelievable . The family who runs the resort is very welcoming and offers you charming rooms just on the beach, built on poles over the water. You spend the days out in... More
