Where do two ocean scientists go for their honeymoon?

We spent months deciding.  There was only one rule- it had to be a place neither of us had been before.  But there were many other desires.  We wanted it to be remote and not overrun with tourists.  We wanted to experience something new and amazing together.  We wanted to be able to nap in a hammock on the beach all day long.

We finally settled on the Kingdom of Tonga, in the South Pacific, and made plans to visit the Ha’apai island group.  It was everything I could have dreamed of- beautiful, remote, undertouristed.  The water was crystal clear and full of life.  But most importantly, when we visited humpback whales were resting in the warm lagoons with their calves, and we were able to swim with them.

So here it is- photos of whales by myself and Simon:
