Presentation on whales
mauidoug posted a topic in The Galley: General ChatAloha, Happy to announce that morrow I will do a live presentation on whales for Ocean Geographic. Here are the details. 6 November at OG LIVE https://www.facebook.com/OceanGeographic at 11am (SYD), 8 am (SG) / 5 November, 8pm EST (NY), 2pm HST. The event will be recorded.
This is an exclusive adventure limited to four people. Right now there is one space open. This will be my tenth season organizing photo tours to Tonga, and over the years I've have learned a lot about whale behavior and photography. This charter has the right boat, takes place at the peak of the season, and will be epic. We will be looking for whales that are displaying particular behavior that we know based on past experience may lead to an extended mutual interaction. When this happens we are accepted into the pod and float along with the whales for hours at a time. I will help participants with camera concerns, techniques, settings, in water positioning, and offer daily review and critique sessions. The adventure includes 11 full days of whale swimming with lunch on the boat, 12 nights accommodation with breakfast and internet. Flights, layover expenses, & dinners are not included.

I have traveled to Tonga ten times to swim with these gental giants, and hope to do it for another ten years. Dont get me wrong I am a die hard diver, and never thought I would look forward to snorkel trips but being in the presence of giants is the most fun I have had with a mask on....
