  • 1km from the island, in the middle of the sea with two kayaks, we find ourselves in the midst of a herd of 50 dolphins and sea lions! Reaching the island was the place with more sea lions concentration compared to the other islands

  • 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.
