How is it to dive in crystal clear waters Tonga’s northern archipelago Vava’u? Most of the people are familiar with Vava’u for majestic hump back whales but there’s gorgeous diving too! Vava’u underwater topography is dramatic: many small caverns and swimthroughs and excellent visibility. During our stay in October visibility was constantly 30 to 40 meters (or even more), even though we had many windy days and huge South Pacific […]
