Join Canon Master Darren Jew and the Whales Underwater team for an unforgettable marine adventure, filled with intimate in-water encounters with magnificent humpback whales in the Kingdom of Tonga’s famous Vava’u Group of Islands.

Since 2001 Darren has been travelling the Vava’u, photographing these magniicant creatures as they go about their lives in the warm waters of this South Pacific paradise–and at the same time sharing his experience with small groups of ocean lovers and photographers.

This is the marine photography adventure of a lifetime! Not only will you experience some of the best whale encounters imaginable, you’ll receive expert tuition allowing you to take your photography to the next level of technique and creativity.

Your 9 or 12 day tour gives you quality time in the water, up-close and personal with the magnificent humpback whales, in the clear, warm waters of their Winter breeding grounds.

This is your chance to shoot alongside Canon Master Darren Jew and gain personal insights into the creative processes that goes into capturing his award-winning images. In addition to on-water time, a mix of structured workshop sessions and supervised lab time will be led by Darren and Jasmine across the week to ensure you make the most of the images you capture.
