Hire a kayak and explore the shores of Tonga Island while keeping an eye on wildlife. You can spot seals and seabirds... I have seen a Reef Heron in these waters.
We went in winter and it was still wonderful weather. the water was cold, so we did a boat ride, but it was amazing scenery.
A new marine reserve in wonderful location. We did not get chance to dive or snorkel there unfortunately.
