Fins n Flukes in Pangai, on the main street opposite the Tonga Visitors Bureau, is currently the only licensed dive operator in Ha'apai. They serve guests staying at the resorts on Foa and Uoleva islands as well as backpackers at the guest houses on Lifuka.

Fins n Flukes can show you some pretty incredible things with the help of a snorkel or tank. They offer scuba diving, whale watching (July to October), kayaking, and snorkeling trips and pick up from all resorts. Their PADI open-water certification courses offer you the chance to learn how to dive while staying in a low-key local area.

Fins n Flukes provides Uoleva boat transfers from Pangai and in the off season from November to June these include half an hour of snorkeling on an outer reef at no additional cost.

Happy Ha'apai Divers (also called Ocean Blue Adventures), formerly at the north end of Foa Island, has closed down.

Whale Discoveries offers whale watching from the Sandy Beach Resort and Matafonua Lodge on Foa Island July to October, plus sailing and snorkeling yearround.

Ha'apai Whale and Sail operating out of Mariner's Cafe in Pangai offers whale watching in season plus island transfers and day sailing charters yearround.
