I am beyond excited to announce that we’re heading off on tour again and going back to the warm waters of the South Pacific. But this isn’t just any tour – we’re off to Vava’u island in Tonga to freedive with humpback whales! We’ve been invited by Scott Portelli from Swimming with Gentle Giants – an exclusive whale diving tour that only does six tours a season with four people at a time, that books out 18 month in advance. As well as being one of the few whale diving tour operators over in Tonga, Scott is also an award winning wildlife photographer. I’ve been told that swimming with whales is a life-changing experience so I can’t wait to share what it’s like with all of you.
In between swimming with whales, we’ll be shooting a range of bikinis for two of our favourite Aussie swimwear labels. Follow us on your preferred social channel for epic whale diving action!
