In this 10 minute mini documentary, Thurston Photo takes you on the experience of a lifetime; swimming with the gentle giants of the sea in the beautiful archipelago's of Vava'u, Tonga.
Shot on assignment with Whales Underwater, Thurston tells the story of what it felt like to be that close to a wild humpback whale, and annotates on their beautiful nature and kind-hearted instincts.
The clip is full of beautiful aerial images of the tropical Islands of Vava'u and underwater ballet from the beautiful humpback whales that migrate their each winter season to breed, give birth and nurture their young.
