Having a whale of a time! Photographer’s amazing close up images as he swims with gentle giants

Having a whale of a time! Photographer’s amazing close up images as he swims with gentle giants

Ever wondered what it would be like to swim with the ocean’s most majestic creatures?

Now you won’t have to thanks to this amazing photo series captured by photographer Craig Parry after he frolicked with the gentle giants under the sea.

“Recently I jumped into the ocean with some of the world’s largest mammals, Humpback Whales, as they migrated through the waters of the Kingdom of Tonga, in the South Pacific Ocean. I wanted to take a series of unique portraits and images that I could share with the world to do my little bit to help raise awareness and create an environment where these gentle giants are respected and protected,” says Parry.

“In one life changing photo session, I spent over three hours free diving with two bulls (males) and one cow (female). Their inquisitive nature led to a depth of interaction beyond anything I have ever experienced, as each took their turn to welcome me into their world and put on a show for the camera.”

“Gracefully gliding through the water, basking in the sun’s rays and gently pushing me towards the boat when I was getting tired. There was a connection between us that I hope many people get to experience in their lifetime. In the meantime please enjoy the journey through my lens and the images below.”

Just beautiful, you must take your time to look through the incredible detail in each image:
