Swim With Whales
The opportunity to swim with a humpback whale is a rare and very special one – something that people who have experienced it have described as “life changing”. “Its truly incredible to that one of the largest of mammals in our oceans is so graceful and gentle – they are just so trusting of human beings. They seem as intrigued by us as we are of them and glide effortlessly around us, with such a gentleness that it’s like they recognise our fragility in comparison and know we are there out of wonder and respect.”
Total time: 4hrs.
Once a whale is sighted, the boat will be put into neutral 100m or more away from the whale, and if the conditions are determined as safe by the trained crew, the boat will be turned off and swimmers will be allowed into the water holding on to the floating line attached to the boat.
Then it’s all up to the whale – it is a natural experience and it is 100% on the whale’s own terms. Whales are known as curious creatures so they may come over towards us or they may just swim past or away. Either way it’s an experience you will never forget. It is also a case of looking but not touching these wondrous creatures.
While the tour operator will do everything in its power to ensure whale encounters, they can’t guarantee that guests will get to swim with these magnificent sea mammals. But if on the day the boat doesn’t sight a whale, you will be eligible for 50% off your next trip.
