The Bubbling Whales of Vava'u

In two short weeks Pam and I have traveled from the mid-Atlantic waters and sperm whales in the Azores to the South Pacific and the humpback breeding grounds of Vava'u in the Kingdom of Tonga. Here conditions are very different with the humpbacks mating and also giving birth. About 16 new calves a year are born in Vava'u. These images have two humpbacks blowing bubbles as they pass by.
