In Topic: Camera Choices For Swimming With Whales

I'm not familiar with any point and shoot system but my advise is to go with the one that allows you to have a wider angle of coverage as possible ,because for good results you need to get close ( which you will probably get at Silver Banks )  .

 

Don't worry about the size/weight of your system , the whales will swim or get close to you . You will not be allowed to swim to them and if you do it most probably they will go away .

 

Being in the water close to the humpback whales is an experience that for sure you will enjoy . Good luck

EXCELENTE !!!

 

I had dove some of those same spots and you excel in capturing the essence  of the place and the characters , congratulations !

 

The only thing that i don't like it that much is the music .  Don't take me wrong , the music is great but it doesn't connect me with the place .  But it's only my personal taste .

 

Thanks for posting such a great video

I think that if you get closer you will have better results . Even in clear water you have a lot of particles in the middle which degradate the image .

I live in DR and have been to Silver Banks several times .  Don't have been to Tonga , vis is suppose to be better there but i think at Silver Banks the amount of whales is bigger.

 

I can recommend you 2 operations :  aquaticadventures.com  and  consciousbreathadventures.com   . They have the best dinghies and guides . The vessels they use are similar in terms of comfort and size.

 

I was there last week of march this year and had a blast 

 

To be in the water with the whales is a magical experience .  If you need further info. about Silver Banks let me know
