I’ve spent a lot of time chatting with folks about Tonga today and it’s got me missing the whales more than usual. I’ll never ever forget this swim. Every now and then a swim just touches your soul and leaves you feeling completely filled with gratitude and appreciation. You laugh, but it’s true. Everyone sits on the boat afterwards smiling and lost in thought...or just straight up cries in the water while it’s happening. Besides the loss of my father, swimming with the whales is the most emotional experience of my life. There’s nothing like it, and photos and videos never do it justice. So thankful for a growing list of folks who have come with me to experience it firsthand, including Kirk (pictured) who has been out twice :) Is it July yet? .

The look in @mauifreediver eyes when he came to the surface says it all. Experiencing a singer up close is like nothing else in this world. Make sure your sound is up and enjoy!

It always surprises me to discover that the baby is almost always looking right at me in photos. Good little models 👌 Starting to pair up video clips to many of these images, but I’m a little remedial with the video editing skills 🙈

The tenderest of moments between a mom and her calf, in shallow water last week. I can’t ever get enough of spending time with these amazing creatures 🙏

Ballistic Baby

This baby was absolutely nuts (in the best possible way). Swims like this are what it’s all about! So fortunate to have a great crew onboard that understands the nuances of getting great, long, interactive swims.
If you’d like more info on joining us in 2019 and/or 2020, please reach out. I’ll have all the info when I return to Maui later in the week and the spots will go quickly for both years.
