I was privileged to have one of my photos from Tonga published in the new BCC book Life, which is an accompaniment to the new series, some of which was shot in Tonga in 2008. The book features some spectacular wildlife from our amazing planet.
Tonga is one of only two places in the world you can swim with Humpback whales. And the regulations state clearly that only 4 people and a licensed guide can be in the water with the whales at any one time. We don’t scuba dive with the whales, only snorkel and practice a soft approach to interactions with these amazing mammals.
