Okeanos Tonga

Future Location


Okeanos is in the process of registering Okeanos Sustainable Sea Transport Ltd in Vava’u, Tonga. This process should be completed in the later half of 2016 and from then on Okeanos will be able to offer tourist operations, especially eco-friendly whale-watching and whale-swimming tours, in the beautiful heart of the South Pacific. Tonga is one of the most scenic and unspoiled of the Pacific island nations. It is a perfect breeding ground for the South Pacific Humpback whales and ideal for swimming with whales in the sheltered waters between its 50 islands.

From July to September 2016, before the completion of the registration of Okeanos Sustainable Sea Transport Ltd in Tonga, our vaka motu ‘Okeanos Aotearoa’ will be operated by the newly registered Vaka & Moana Co. Ltd which is owned and operated by the experienced skipper Aunofo Havea who was also one of our skipper during the ‘Te Mana o Te Moana’ voyage in 2011/2012. Aunofo is one of the leading forces behind the Tonga Voyaging Society.
