I would have thought in a million years that I would be able to do this, but this year for my Birthday I went swimming with whales.
I had seen images from a surf photographer that I follow swimming with Humpback Whales in Tonga. I remember thinking to myself “one of these days I would like to do that”.
Well in September I had the once in a lifetime opportunity to swim with the whales. What a life changing experience it was. You have no idea the emotions that rush through you body when you are less then ten feet away from a 40 ton mama Humpback Whale, and her calf.
I was in Vava’u, Tonga for ten days and on the water for nine of those days. During those nine days I did my best to capture some images of Humpback Whales.
