The pinnacle of humpback action is the mating chase, the "heat run"! @darrenjew (@get_repost ) ・・・ The chaos continued today, starting from around 7:15am. Our plan to venture south was turned upside down when the horizon filled with blows. What ensued was a second epic day of drop after drop with a crowd that varied between 12 and 17 whales. Like the day before, the female leading the chase was staying shallow and led the contenders (and us) around the islands for hours. Our skippers Mike and Cam gave us some perfect drops from Whimsical, great job! And to my team of whale swimmers, you guys were fantastic, drop after drop after drop. #whalesunderwater17 #whalesunderwater #kingdomoftonga #swimwithwhales #humpbackwhale Reposted from @whalesunderwater #whalewednesday #whaletrail #whaleart #whalewatch #craftbeer #ocean #whalesvagina #whaleybridge #whaler #whalewars #whalemart
Thanks to @colbaker and the @canoncollectiveofficial for making this last 2 weeks of @whalesunderwater truly memorable! ・・・ We're currently in Tonga with Canon Master @darrenjew and @pxlexplorer along with 12 very excited #canoncollective members following the whale migration and capturing the new born calves before their long return to colder waters... Pictured is a 2 to 3 week old calf who played it up for us for over an hour, doing barrel rolls, flips and learning new tricks with us like peck slapping and tail slaps... So so magical words don't begin to describe getting within a meter of these beautiful creatures... #canonaustralia #whalesunderwater #aquatech #kingdomoftonga #whalesunderwater17 #dreamcatcher #madeofocean Reposted from @whalesunderwater #whalestail #whalelove #whalewars #sea #whaleart #whaleshark #whalewatchingtour #whaletattoo #whalewatching #whalesherveybay #whalewednesday #whaleseason #craftbeer #whaleyhouse #whalestale

Today was the day for @tomburnsdvm ! What will tomorrow bring! #wuwnorway17 ・・・ "A pod of Orcas with 3 calves in tow rush towards other pods feeding on a massive bait ball of herring forming a super pod of over 100 orca.

Another amazing capture by @pxlexplorer check out her original post for the rest of the series! Join her and @darrenjew and the Orcas in Norway next northern Winter. www,whalesunderwater.com ・・・ "I have been itching to tell you guys that yesterday was completely amazing! We were, well I was floating like a huge marshmallow, nice and quiet over a bait ball that was hanging round the surface while a pod of Orcas just came in and ever so gingerly and snacked on them one by one. At one time I was actually in the bait ball getting a #herringmassage and an Orca was only a couple of herrings away from my face 🤗. What was truly amazing was that a Mama and her week old baby came and hung by me snacking away. They came by my side over and over. I was so grateful and so thrilled they felt comfortable to do that! #solucky So here’s a few snaps of them coming by. You can still see the folds in this #munchkin and the matt black colouring with orange tinge. I have a feeling Munchkin was still in training but still gets an A++++++++ from me🤗💙 If you’d like to see some herring shots or video of Orcas let me know 😉" #mumandcalf #wuwnorway17 #orcas #bucketlist #whalesunderwater #herring #orcasfeeding #gotgreatherringshots #gotsomegreatvideos #orcasome Reposted from @whalesunderwater #whalelove #whaletattoo #whalesherveybay #whaletale #whalesharks #whaler #craftbeer #whalez
#Repost @annabellew_photo ・・・ You're in the water. You've got your eyes on a whale beside you to make sure he doesn't come too close. You look down, you see this. What do you feel?? It's not a feeling I can put my finger on... probably because you feel a plethora of things. Bit still, in the midst of it all, you refocus your camera as quickly as you can in a hope that maybe, with some luck, others can look at your image and feel a fraction of what you do when you're floating above a 30 tonne giant. #swimwithwhales #whalesunderwater17 #whalesunderwater #tonga #vavau Reposted from @whalesunderwater #whaletattoo #whaleyhouse #whalesharks #whalez #whaletale #sea #whaleweaves #whalestale #craftbeer

We encounter spinner dolphins periodically when we’re out looking for humpbacks in Tonga. They have some favourite haunts and it’s always really special to have them bow-ride, breaking the surface within arms reach if you’re up on the forward deck. They are shy of people in the water and therefor really hard to swim with. But sometimes we get lucky. You too could get lucky ... we have 3 spots left for this coming humpback season... get in touch if you’d like to join @pxlexplorer and I for this years @whalesunderwater tours. #spinnerdolphins #tonga #whalesunderwater #dolphin #swimwithdolphins #talesbylight #wuwtonga17 via @darrenjew

Whalecome to Tonga!!! I know, this photo is beyond to be on my quality parameters. My underwater camera is new, and the weather conditions this day was complicated (4 meters waves, 30 knots of winds)... The whales were very fast, but for 3 minutes, they decided to stop a little bit and let us enjoy this first glimpse of what it's going to be this season. So, for my first underwater picture, I'm happy. And I'd like to let it here, so we can accompany my skill's progress and also the season's progress.
A childhood dream come true. Last saturday 22km off the coast and after nearly 5hours at sea i saw and filmed humpback whales underwater. I have spent months at sea documenting their migration as a student, i have photographed them from planes, boats beaches... and this has always been a dream of mine. An incredible moment i will never forget. Still buzzing. 🐳❤. The ocean is an incredible place we need to look after. Link to the vlog about that day at sea in bio. Stoked i shared imthe experience with all my friends! @queensland #1frame4nature #humpbackwhale #whalesunderwater #gopro6 #goprowhale @maestro320 #ocean #sunshinecoast @ocean #protune #gopro #goprohero6 #earthcapture @natgeotravel #natgeotravelphotos

A female humpback rolls over and rubs her back on the sandy sea floor, watched by her calf and her escort. I couldn't believe my eyes as this unfolded beneath us, we'd spent a wonderful morning over the shallow reefs down south before this brief moment stopped us in our tracks. Thanks to our skipper Ali Takau for a fabulous day. Photo & caption by @darrenjew

During our 2017 Orca season in Norway 🇳🇴 we were incredibly lucky to encounter two gigantic Fin Whales amongst the herring, orca and humpbacks! What a sight! We spotted their towering and distinctive blows from a very very long way away and headed across the fjord to spend time watching them from the surface. Fin whales are slender and fast and can grow to well over 20m... which makes them second in size only to the Blue Whale. Maybe we’ll encounter them again when our groups reach the fjords this coming November. If you’d like to join @pxlexplorer and @darrenjew on one of these amazing voyages, to see whales and the northern lights, we have a few berths still available for this coming season November 2018. #finwhale #whalesunderwater #wuwnorway17 #norway #whalewatching #ReallyBigWhale

The humpback whale was once an endangered species. It was so close to extinction that many said: "let it go." However, those who believed in the power of hope, action, and policy wouldn't let up. Activists stood up for this whale. Governments made changes. Politicians listened to their constituents. People didn't give up. They fought. Today the humpback is on the rebound and in healthy numbers. I am currently on a @Sea_Legacy expedition, with @CristinaMittermeier , @_tomconlin , and, @susan_bird_ in the Azores to document blue whales. The Azores is an autonomous region of Portugal, in the mid-Atlantic Ocean, that is home to one of the highest concentrations of megafauna in the world. Photo & caption by @paulnicklen
