At one time, a great many humpback whales visited the Fiji Islands. Unfortunately the whale trade which took off in the late 1800's killed many of these great creatures and few have since returned. A tradition that remains from this former trade is the presentation of Tabua, or sperm whales teeth. These highly prized tokens are presented at all formal gatherings such as weddings and deaths and are also given to a person when asking for forgiveness or a favour.

Humpback whales can occasionally be seen in the shallow waters of the Lomaiviti Group and around the islands off Taveuni in the Northern Islands between July and October.
