Another Amazing Day on the Ningaloo Reef – 19/7/19

I work as an underwater photographer on the Ningaloo reef, we are in the fourth year of trailing humpback whales swims as a form of tourism, similar to Tonga…

It was my first training day so I was pretty damn excited the pilot spotted a pod of 12 whales approaching from the south, the skipper lined us up, dropped us in and we waited…it honestly looked like a building being demolished with so many plumes of their breath in the sky!!!

12 of them coming right towards us..I stuck my head under the water as they blasted past us on all sides and below and it was probably the loudest thing I’ve ever heard down there!! Crazy

The whole encounter lasted probably only 10 seconds before they were gone and we were left floating in the open ocean watching their spouts blow off into the distance!!

  1. unfortunately the whales on Ningalu are no match for the whales on Tonga!
    in Tonga – humpback whales seem to be on vacation, spending most of their time sleeping, singing and making love! – give birth – nurture, raise and train the cubs as well as look after and happily communicate with people – sometimes they play for two or three hours in a row – without letting the divers go to the ship! and on Ningala – whales pass – about their business – always quickly and – by ((- do not spare time and money and go at least once in your life to Tonga – experience interaction with whales on yourself – believe me – it’s worth it – Tonga is the best a place for swimming with whales and – a day with whales on the water is much cheaper than in Australia – it brings more options for interacting with whales and if the guide and captain of the boat are the right ones (and I know such) then you will get an experience that will change your life and you will go back there again and again – like me)
