He SWAM into a WHALE in TONGA! S3 SNEAK PEAK of Slow Boat Sailing

I could not believe I got so close to the 30-ton WHALE!

Get the SECRETS of swimming with the whales in Vava’u, Tonga. Linus gives you the tricks to go on the swim of the LIFETIME with a 30-ton HUMPBACK whale and her calf! You’ll see several minutes of awesome underwater shots of a nursing humpback whale calf and its mother in this video.

This is a re-edited version of our original whale swim video based on viewer feedback.

Linus stumbles into the whale swim tour that he later learned Sailing La Vagabonde took in their awesome video below with the whale tour operator:

Linus swam with the whales and snorkeled swallows cave with Beluga Diving. They are not a sponsor of this episodes and we paid full price for the tour and mooring ball.

The Kingdom of Tonga is the breeding ground for humpback whales. The most whale tours run out the the sailboat charter base of Niefu, Vava’u, Tonga. The easiest whales to swim with are a mother and calf humpback. After sighting half-a-dozen whales breaching, they found a whale that was willing to let them get close enough to swim.

This is a sneak peak of season 3 coming a year early! We are currently 2/3 of the way through season 2, and the whale swim comes near the end of season 3. Season 3 is already filmed and is in post-production and it will feature Tahiti, Bora Bora, Aitutaki, Tongatapu, and Vava’u. The Slow Boat will visit French Polynesia, the Cook Islands, and the Kingdom of Tonga in season 3 which premiers in 2019.

The underwater shots were filmed with the Fluid+Form 4K camera https://www.amazon.com/Action-Camera-FLUID-FORM-Long-Lasting/dp/B075YGMD8M
which sponsored several episodes in the past including:

In season 2 of Slow Boat Sailing , Linus, Daly (dog), and crew are sailing across the Pacific to the Marquesas, Tuamotus, and Society Islands of French Polynesia.
