Your heater may be shorted out and needs to be replaced or possibly has a water leak at the heater terminals, causing the tripping.

SOURCE: aqua spa pack breaker tripped
A breaker trips if it getting feedback. Feedback can be caused by water or a crossed wire, or an electrical component failure. You said it's pumping water on the ground so the pump is working. Then if you put it back in it trips, so you pump isn't able to push the water to where it has to go and therefore your getting a pressure buildup which falls back on the pump sensors and stops it before you blow up something, it is saving you from disaster of property or personal injury, this is a good thing. You have a clog in your pipes or you have a valve that is closed that shouldn't be, but it's the back pressure that is blowing the breaker I think. I take it it is on an isolated circuit in your house and isn't sharing anything else that could be drawing to much on that circuit. Anything electronically new in your house? I don't think it's electrically related just asking.

You will want to make sure that all of your spa equipment is functioning properly. It is best for a spa technician or electrician to determine this issue.
It is likely that a particular piece of equipment is turning on around the 30 min time frame and causing the breaker to trip. Pump, ozonator or similar. Also check the heater element, a pin sized hole in the element will cause it to fail. Lastly your spas breaker itself could be bad.
