Destination Reefs: Tonga

By Leonard Ho - Posted Mar 25, 2012 08:00 AM
Haʻapai, Tonga is a truly magical place. Immerse yourself in lush coral gardens, sharp drop-offs and mysterious underwater caverns found in no other place on Earth. And to top it all off, humpback whales regularly navigate these waters!
Destination Reefs: Tonga

Tonga hosts animals great and small.

Ha'apai is group of sparsely populated, rarely visited islands in Central Tonga.  As such, the reefs of Ha'apai are some of the most pristine in the world.  Its underwater topography is dramatic and diverse: Coral flats, drop-offs, caves, sandy "plains" and and rocky "mountains" define Ha'apai's reefs.

We present five short but glorious videos by Liquid Image Productions.  The imagery is jaw-dropping.  It's no surprise humpbacks frequent Tonga; It's truly a South Pacific paradise.  Watch every video; We promise you it's time well spent.

The Destination Reefs video series showcases the diversity of coral reefs around the world.  Through these high quality videos, Advanced Aquarist hopes we can all gain a greater appreciation of reef life beyond our glass boxes.

I'm a passionate aquarist of over 30 years, a coral reef lover, and the blog editor for Advanced Aquarist. While aquarium gadgets interest me, it's really livestock (especially fish), artistry of aquariums, and "method behind the madness" processes that captivate my attention.
