The Right Whale to Snorkel With!
Once upon a time, right whales were hunted for their oil and blubber. They were so easy to approach that they were known as ‘the right whale to kill’. Thankfully, those awful days are over but the name has stuck. Right whales are still extremely easy to get close to in the water. It is not unusual for them to approach boats and snorkelers; trusting their lives into your care. Coming eye to eye with this beautiful species is an experience you will never forget.
The whales spend a lot of time at the surface so you do not need to scuba dive to enjoy encounters with them. This means you can pack light and have more room for cameras and lenses!
This trip is specifically designed for serious amateur photographers and professional photographers alike. You do not have to bring a ‘big rig’ but all participants should have an underwater camera with them.
Let Big Fish Expeditions help you plan your next memorable experience.
